A word from Gulliver's Restaurant
In the last four decades Gulliver’s Restaurant has became one of the most popular Prime Rib Restaurant in Southern California.
Gulliver’s hand-selected beef (corn-belt) is slow roasted in a unique patented oven system to assure flavorful, tender and juicy Prime Rib dinners. Gulliver's Restaurant is well known also for its other specialties as in-house aged Prime Steaks, Chateaubriand, Salmon, Rack of Lamb, Baby Back Ribs and roasted Long Island Duck.
As you walk into a Gulliver's you will feel as though you have entered back in time to 18th century England. Guests at the Gulliver’s are surrounded by a veritable museum of leaded glass pieces, pewter and ceramic objects, and a collection of prints from Hogarth, Rowlandson and other Gulliver’s Travels illustrators.
The Portions are huge, the service is gracious and friendly, and most importantly, the beef is cooked to perfection.
Gulliver's is place where memories are created.

Diner Reviews
  • "A classic restaurant. This is the place for beef lovers. The prime rib is outstanding. The rib bones in barbeque sauce are delicious."

  • "Another great evening at Gulliver's.. I've never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere is so relaxing (dim lighting) and the servers are always friendly! Of course the reason we go is for the prime rib and creamed corn. Delicious! And our server brought out a complimentary English Trifle for my birthday dessert! Great time! Thanks Gullivers."

  • "Prime rib not up to par. The service was not good. I asked for "no shrimp" on my house salad. It was brought to me with shrimp, so I switched with my wife's. It had shrimp on it also. We had to ask other servers twice to call our waitress over. She did not check on our meal until we were almost finished. We have been coming here for over 40 years, and this is the first time our dinner was not good."

  • "it's dark, quaint, hasn't changed in many years, but the food is excellent (prime rib, duck, steak were our meals) and the service also very good. apparently they are slower in summer so we had no trouble getting a table last minute. more of a fall/winter place I guess, no outdoor dining. if you have a hankering for some serious meat, go to Gullivers!"

  • "Brought a friend for his first experience, and he was floored with "The Brob!" He said it was the best prime rib he ever had, and I agree. The prime rib is perfect. The creamed corn is really good too. No appetizers this time because we wanted to enjoy our meals, without getting full. I love this place, and it's a treat every time."

  • "Never disappointed when celebrating a special family occasion at Gulliver's. The service was attentive and the food excellent! Get the Prime, you can't go wrong!"

  • "Personally I think this restaurant is struggling. Not the Old Gullivers. Food not great anymore. We went because it is a favorite of the people we were with. Bus boy was a jerk. Threw the take home boxes at us. Probably be nicer if they asked us if we wanted our food boxed up by them or do it ourselves. Expresso served with no lemon or spoon."

  • "Great food, topped only by the wonderful service! Our server, Amanda, was quite enjoyable to deal with, and she seemed to have a second sense when we needed something (like four total orders of the creamed corn!). I even made a point of requesting to talk to the manager, and beamed my total happiness with Amanda to her. We'll be back soon, making sure to request one of her tables! The world needs more of her!!!!"

  • "Gulliver's is wonderful because, although they're known for their fabulous Prime Rib, the rest of their cuts are just as delightful. The Chateaubriand was perfect! The best part? I finally found a spot that will leave my steak mooing! It has a festive, yet elegant atmosphere full of nods to its namesake novel. The perfect spot for a fancy date night or celebration! Beware, you will not leave hungry. Let's just say that one day I hope to be able to save room to try the trifle...one day..."

  • "I have dined at Gulliver's many times and I am always glad I did, the food and service are excellent. Some folks think Gulliver's is just a prime rib restaurant, and while the prime rib is some of the best you will ever had, there are equally good entrees on their menu also. I had the Prime NY Steak on this visit and it was juicy and tender, cook rare just the way I like it. My Wife had the roasted chicken and it was also cooked to perfection, we both loved our meals."

  • "I had their prime rib tonight. Quality wasn't as good as before and the portion seems to be smaller than before as well. Thus, I rate them 3 stars this time."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I loved the fact that my husband and I could chat without any noise interference. Our prime rib and ribeye steaks were cooked perfectly, and, although we could see the waiter if we needed service, we were not interrupted during our dinner. We look forward to return visited to Gulliver's."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We had the prime rib that was thinly sliced and it was cooked perfectly. The creamed corn was very good as well. Try the Creme Brûlée for dessert over the English Trifle."

  • "Hadn't been in some time so we made rezzies for Father's Day since it's a favorite spot of dad's. Food was very good and enjoyed our meal immensely. Of course the prime rib was the star of the meal! We'll be back and won't wait as long between visits this time."

  • "The food was outstanding. The best prime rib in Orange County."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I had their premium cut of meat....it was huge, but average at best and flavorless. My wife had the turkey dinner which was very salty and tasted much like a hungry man TV dinner.....very uninteresting. The service was horrible....granted we sat on the bar side so that we could watch the game. I think that if you are a senior citizen and can't really taste your food anyway...this is your place."

  • "I have been eating at Gulliver's for over 40 years. It is still one of my favorite "go-to" places. There were some not so wonderful years in there, but of late, it's like going home. Servers are friendly and efficient; food and portion sizes are perfect. I hope I'll be enjoying Gulliver's for many, many more years."

  • "I've had the prime rib on several occasions and it's always been great. This time I tried the daily fresh fish (halibut) to limit the calories and, while the fish was ok, it was overdone and the portion was rather small. I recognize that they're not known for fish, but I was hoping it would be better than it ended up. So, stick with the prime rib and, if you're calorie counting, order a salad."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "It is always a pleasure to dine here. The food is excellent. Had the Rib Eye which almost didn't need a knife it was soooo melt in your mouth good. Our server, Rachelle, was the best."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Amazing prime rib, had the Gulliver's cut, quite tasty and delicious. Perfectly cooked. Also amazing was the creamed corn. I don't know why but I could have had just that as my meal and been happy. Will definitely return on a future visit to the area."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Guliver's always comes through with great meat This is one of our go-to places fro prime rib - always top notch. This time I had the New York with the peppercorn sauce. Loved it! Maybe liked it even more then the Prime Rib. It was cooked to perfection."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "I had my usual excellent cut of beef (blackened rib eye) and my wife went with the smoke salmon (I believe they smoke their own) and crab cakes. If you are a red cabbage fan order a side, it is excellent."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We had an amazing time and great food… We accidentally showed up late but they accommodated us and seated us right away. The food was served in generous proportions and was hard to leave some for leftover. Recommend for any special occasion!"

  • "Went back after 20 years and it was delicious. The duck was really good, and my husbands fish was moist and flavorful. We will try the prime rib next time but it will be hard to pass up that wonderful duck! The pecan pie was disappointing, however. Dry and just not good."

  • "Judging by external appearance, we were positively surprised by excellent service and food in this iconic (40 years and counting) Orange County restaurant. Now we know what we were missing all those years. Looking forward to an encore, bis."

  • "This was my first time here and had to try the famous prime rib, it was just okay. There was a lot of fat on it and didn't pack a lot of flavor. The house salad also was just okay, kinda boring. The service was very good. This place is out of the way for me so I don't think I will go back but it was obvious while I was there that they have a strong following with their lunch crowd as several of the patrons were known by name by the servers and seemed to be enjoying their lunches. Nice ambiance. "

  • "This was our first time dining at Gulliver's and I can tell you it will not be our last. From the moment we entered the restaurant we felt as if we were transported back in time to his time. And when we received our food, OMG! Fabulous! The Prime Rib - unbelievable. And I had heard they were famous for their creamed corn...I most definitely want the recipe. And before I forget to mention it the staff is so warm and friendly and extremely attentive. Gulliver's is hands down one of the best dining experiences ever."

  • "Best prime rib ever. Creamed corn and spinach were rediclous. Would have preferred potato to Yorkshire pudding but the huge slab of delicious med rare meat made me forget about it. Will be back for sure. "
