Long time local favorite. Alcoholic beverages available. Kids will like train on track hanging from the ceiling and many stuffed wild animals. Known for burgers and pizza, but many other menu items just as good.

We have been here 3 times in the past few months, and had great food every time! The servers are very friendly, it has a fun atmosphere, and cabin decor with a train that goes around a track in the main dining room.

Was there last night..3.4.17...Place was packed but we didn't wait long. Very very loud! Every TV in the place was on including music. Numbing. Saw the specials on the blackboard. Ordered the chicken marsala because I wanted pasta with it. It came with a mound of hard cold mashed potatoes, cold unappealing green and yellow beans and gross looking chicken... More

Gilberts lodge offers great deals on Mondays 1/2 off pizza dine in or carry out. So I called in an order for a large pizza square with pepperoni, mushrooms, onions. They said 15 minutes so I go in to pick it up and they cannot find my order. So they retook it and placed it. I had to wait an... More

A very varied menu in a comfortable lodge atmosphere. It was packed on a Wednesday night. We were promptly seated and service by Noah was immediate. We share a beef fajita and house salad: portions are generous and the accompaniment sides were plentiful. All very good and well presented. The house red was fine. The chocolate cake with ice cream... More

I have come here on numerous occasions and only return due to it being apart of a very limited restaurant selection in SCS- it's close to home and that's pretty much the only convenience. I have encountered good and bad meals as well as good and bad service at this establishment. Inconsistency is not a favorable quality.

This why my fiance and I's first time at Gilbert's Lodge and we were really impressed. The atmosphere was fun and the decor made you feel like you were in an up north cabin! The food was delicious and their menu had plenty of options for any craving you might have. Service was okay for a Friday night, our waitress... More

Food is great. Love the atmosphere. Unfortunately, the service could be better. Slow to order, slow to come back around. Next visit everything including service is great. Hit or miss on service

My friend and I always pick Gilbert's when we want to meet and catch up with each other. The atmosphere is fun and inviting. The wait staff is always accommodating and the food is good!! They have a great menu with a wide selection and always have specials depending on what day of the week it is. The drink menu... More
