Gulliver's opened in 1971. We have been going there since 1972. It still attracts many clients, is charming with its Olde England atmosphere, and serves excellent Prime Ribs. It is particularly festive for events like Mother's and Father's Days, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Try it, you...More

Day before Valentines day and we had reservations. The food is always first rate, we had a New York and a Ribeye steak. Can't go wrong. We did have Ceasar salad with anchovies, and the Diver Scallops, both excellent. I would make sure next time...More

We usually save this place for special occasions since it is fairly expensive. Their specialty is Prime rib, and they do it well! I have tried their other menu items and was unimpressed. Sure the rest of the menu was "OK", but not spectacular. Go...More

I would call the restaurant and ask them directly. I would think that would be the most reliable info. I would expect a Thanksgiving menu for a given price.
