Wow! Walk through the door and step back in time. Friendly staff but I just couldn't pass the decor. It seemed to be a bit dirty. The food however was great. I bit on the pricey side. Dennis was a great bartender.

A friend recommended the place and so we went. Pricey, but worth it. The escargot was good, not great, but the prime rib was stellar. Service was top notch as well. 100% worth the trip and you will like it.

I consider three principal things when reviewing a restaurant: the environment, including ambiance, seating, lighting, table presentation and the like; the food, including selection, presentation, taste, and price; and the staff, including servers, management, and chefs (if visible). We had not been to Gulliver’s for...More

Gullivers is a nice place to go to for special occasions. It looks like an English tavern complete with telephone boxes. They are known for their prime rib, which is excellent and comes with creamed corn, creamed spinach and Yorkshire pudding. The inside is covered...More

Inside looks like a British pub. Servers dress in sort of period style clothing. The prime rib is delicious and offered in 3 different cuts. They also have a delicious, yet super rich, cream corn side dish. They also have a kids menu but you...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.
