So beautiful, we were able to sit by the window in view of the lake. My ribeye was cooked to perfection with parmesan crust. Great for special occasion

Pam and the rest of the staff took care of us. Enjoyed their signature drink cherry lemon drop (had a more lovely name) which was refreshing and not too sweet. Had crab cake appetizer then steak and special seafood pasta dish and corn and Mac and cheese sides. Easily another meal of leftovers due to serving sizes. Great team serving us and helped us with food selections. We were there early evening so it was just filling up. Pleasant evening and good experience that rivals Chicago. Glad to have this option locally.

So good! Calamari appetizer was one of our best — lightly breaded, crispy, perfect texture. I enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs and husband had the Chilean sea bass. Tasty cocktails too!

Beautiful restaurant with fantastic service! The menu had a wide selection of choices and included a nice kid's menu as well. We enjoyed the hot honey fried chicken meal and the pork chop meal. The plates offered a lot of food and they were both very delicious. We also enjoyed a strawberry and a blueberry margarita which were very fresh and tasty! Our waitress, Christine, was so sweet and went over several menu items as it was our first time visiting. Definitely a place to visit whether you are just passing through or live nearby!

Gino’s has maintained exceptional service, and the highest quality food for decades. Service is attentive and professional. Our server, Christine, was a delight. She helped me work around a food allergy without a hitch. The 9 oz filet was done to perfection, and the meat was tender and not over seasoned. Sides are generous. Try the shrimp cocktail. Complimentary bread is fresh and brushed with melted butter. Craft cocktails are excellent. Can’t say enough good about this restaurant.

We found Gamba a few years back while driving home from Ohio. Now we make this a must stop every trip. Beautiful place and the food is amazing. We decided to share appetizers and Elk chops so we could enjoy dessert. Such a yummy treat.
