I went to Gilbert's with a friend for dinner. The meal was good and the wait staff was pleasant and prompt. We sat at the far end of the bar so we could talk. Keep in mind we knew Gilbert's had live music and it...More

Great food and selection - my wife and daughter had lobster rolls and I had the fish tacos. The steamers were also large and plump. Having a draft Monkeyfist for $4 was the icing on the cake. Our waitress Emily was attentive and friendly. We...More

Atmosphere very "punish", kind of loud. Food was good. Service attentive and efficient. Not a place for quiet conversation.
