Gibby's reminded me of the seaside restaurants we visited when I was a child. It is very basic, from decor to menu to service, but the food was good and reasonably priced. We both had combo meals with our choice of seafood. I suggest choosing the broiled option instead of fried, as the flavor of the food is better.

We had dinner here tonight and it was very good and an excellent value! Portions won't disappoint either! Everything was so fresh! We will go back for sure!

In the past month have had breakfast here a number of times and they are excellent. The only blemish worth mentioning is that on 2 occasions the bacon was closer to being warmed up than cooked. Not to be discouraged though, also had lunch and dinner a couple times. The chowder is, in my opinion, the best on the island. Burgers and crabcake sandwiches are excellent and cooked to order and complimented with their side of sweet potato fries.

We stopped by far a quick lunch. The lunch menu was plentiful and very reasonably priced. I had the signature Gibbys sandwich which was excellent. My wife had a shrimp basket which she enjoyed. The atmosphere was the casual beach, as expected. We ate outside on the canal. Next time we' ll probably bring the boat down and tie up to their dock. Wait staff was very attentive ! We plan to go back for breakfast sometime. We do live locally and plan to go back regularly.

A warning to all this place is not for tourist. It is owned by the same people as Harbor masters which was in the same building as gibby's. All they did was change their name and some of the menu. They still allow drunk hooligans to hang off of the deck by the rafters- if he had lost his balance he could have drowned. I witness the same guy almost lose his balance 3 times. It is noisy and loud especially on the deck. They do not reprimand the customers on the deck who distract their neighbors from being able to fish and live quietly nearby. The deck is not screened to protect your food from bugs-flying no-seeiums, etc. If your not a local forget about getting waited on. I know as a business owner that you want to make your customers happy but you have to also keep your neighbors and their tenants happy (as far the noisy goes). And you need to protect yourself from a lawsuit if these hooligans fall in the water and get hurt or drown-they or their family will sue. There's not even a gate to block access to the water for toddlers who eat with their parents on the deck. Yes, i even saw a toddler adventure down to the water and about fell in. Thankfully their parents caught them in time-we know children can wonder off at the blink of eye when they want to play. I know that this business is suppose to be boat friendly to eat at but protect your customers and yourself with a latching door that only a mature person can open to the floating dock to the deck to avoid accidents/death. Poorly thought out on safety concern wise too.
