We love this place and have been going there since it opened. They are affiliated with Bristol so you will see some commonality in the two menus. Great happy hour food pricing. We enjoy their appetizers and love the sliders. Steaks are delish too.

Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Bleu potato chips. The cozy atmosphere includes rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy a quiet table or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open daily for dinner & lunch. Reservations are recommended.
