This is an often overlooked spot in the heart of Overland Park. The food is fresh and house made with something for everyone in the family. Great bar area, with an elegant but comfortable atmosphere, which my wife and I have visited after dinner elsewhere.

I think this is the best steak in town!! Good wine list. Only complaint I would have is We tried to have a family function (12 people) and they were not very accommodating.

My husband and I agree that J Gilbert's has the best steak in KC, compared to numerous high-end eateries. Our last meal didn't disappoint. Great service, and live music on a Saturday night. The generous-sized house salad was delicious, incorporating roasted corn, and homemade croutons....More

There was a limited Easter menu, when we visited with my parents. We also went a few weeks prior, and I enjoyed the Friday mixed grill seafood dinner. Casual to dressy, romantic, soft light dinning. Great for dinner with close friends, family or date night....More

They do have kids menu. We take children once in a while and they love it. We've split items like their huge Wedge Salad, but haven't tried to split an entree.
