I had a delicious lunch at Gulliver's. I love prime rib so I had the lunch cut with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. It was plentiful and the service was attentive. The restaurant is across the street from the John Wayne airport so it's convenient...More

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

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.
