A little better than your standard "wood fired pizzas and all natural burger" joint. The burger was exceptional and filling, but the sweet potato fries were to die for. Good place to go hang with some friends. Can get kind of noisy, but it wasn't that bad. Would recommend.

Went out for dinner with 3 other couples and had a wonderful meal. The food is not fancy but the menu is fun as choices have creative names. The burgers, pizza and salads are all presented nicely and quite tasty.

We were seated promptly at our reservation time and placed our order. The restaurant wasn't overly busy and after an hour we searched for our waitress to inquire about our food since 3 tables around us who were seated well after us were enjoying their meals. We were given free mimosas for our delay. Disappointed in the service.

I went here for lunch with my girl friends before we went to an exhibit at the Memorial Art Gallery, it was perfect for that. They had a nice lunch menu with choices of sandwiches, burgers and salads. The sandwich I had was very good and they were able to give it to me on a different bread than on... More

My friend and I went for a Sunday brunch. Trendy decor, so many delicious choices on the menu it was hard to choose, yummy Mexican burrito & Mexican hot coco. (It isn't a Mexican place.) I plan to go back and try some of the other dishes on the menu that peaked my interest!

our waiter had a bad attitude right off the bat and was very unfriendly for the 2 hours that we were there. We are the easiest going family you could ask for. None of us have ever written a bad review on any restaurant we have eaten at. Our waiter made us feel very uncomfortable when asking for a spoon.After... More

I have ALWAYS loved the Gate House & recommended it to anyone looking for a great spot where they can't go wrong no matter which way they go on the menu- across the board... But, something has changed... I cannot fathom that the new location could possibly have this much effect on an establishment... but all of my 4 visits... More

This was my 1st visit to Gate House after they moved into their new location. I love the new place. I love the industrial feel with the wood and steel elements. The restaurant seats more people and was quieter than the old. Food was great as usual. I had a burger with rosemary garlic fries. They were accommodating as I... More
