We had a calamari appetizer and various steaks all around for our party of five. The steaks were done perfectly to each diner's preference. Great signature...More

J. Gilberts was good, but not impressionable. The quality of food for the price seemed off balance. I would recommend driving down 23 a little farther south and visiting the Whiney House or the Worthington Inn; the prices & food quality are both better.

Don’t waste your money. We won’t go back. The food wasn’t right. Bad thing when the bread was the best thing. The waiter could’ve cared less. Go to Eddie Merlots. It’s so much better. This place has gone downhill. Thumbs down!

The steaks are just as everyone else, in their reviews, have described. Wonderful! The sides are heavenly as well- I enjoyed my wild mushroom risotto and grilled asparagus. Unfortunately, they sat our party of two, in the back rooms with 2 large parties. The noise...More
