Been eating at Gullivers for over 40 years. It an English pub atmosphere. Their creamed spinach, cream corn are excellent. Fresh bread and of course prime rib with Yorkshire pudding and horseradish. Yum it's good if you like this menu. They also offer entrees. Plan to spend about $50 per person with tip and drink.

You know how those early food experiences shape our palette for life? Gullivers did that for me. This was the first fancy steakhouse I went to as a kid, and I even celebrated my 16th birthday here (decades ago). So I asked hubby to bring me back for our anniversary. The decor was the same... I mean EXACTLY the same...... More

Meateaters will be in hog heaven. I ordered the BROBDINGNAGIAN. It was very good. My wife doesn't eat red meat. She ordered the chicken, sucks. We went there only because we had a Groupon. We haven't been back.

W went here with friends for New Year's Eve and the experience was one of the worst I have had in a dining experience.The restaurant was decorated nicely for the holidays but the entire place is dated and shabby and the service and food was bad. The food is slopped on your plate as if you are in a cafeteria... More

For many years I have been dining at Gullivers and seen the gradual decline in service and food quality. I dined at Gullivers New Years Eve with my husband and another couple. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and very festive but the food is more on par with Sizzlers. My prime rib was warm and tough and flavorless. My husband... More

Our dinner and experience was excellent! Fast friendly service. Prime rib dinner was delicious as was the house salad and the mushroom soup. Highly recommend this place.

We went there Xmas Eve as they had been so good in the past. . . well those days are over. With very poor service(not trained with even the basic of service), so so tasking food this time, it seem all they were after was to turn the tables and get more people in. For the price of the food,... More

The menu offerings are basically unchanged. All items fill the comfort food craving. Prime rib as you like it. Yorkshire pudding, creamed corn, creamed spinach, horseradish. Great bar scene and wine list. Friendly efficient serving wenches in authentic dress. Family owned and cared for. Not a place to visit weekly, but worth a meal a few times a year.
