Pretty standard fare. Everyone was reasonably happy with they had - but nothing stood out. No real issues, and service was decent.

After reading the last two reviews, I felt compelled to write a review to share our experience. I will start by saying, I am picky about the quality of my food. We eat at many nice restaurants, but Gulliver's is "our favorite" restaurant! We generally...More

Amazing steaks in an old world environment (dark woods, etc). Good service although they brought out steaks in less than five minutes - no one wants to KNOw they Pre cooked the house special...still it’s great food and drinks and pleasant folks. Rarely a wait.

We have been going to Gulliver's for years during December to take in the holiday atmosphere as well as the prime rib. The service was very good, but we were served our food within 5 minutes of ordering-perhaps a tad too quick. The house wine...More

This old-style steakhouse should have closed year's ago, but for some reason stays popular. If you crave a big slice of prime rib, this may be your place. For anything else, go elsewhere. I had a small piece of fish that was swimming in heavy...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.
