For a place that claims to be a “Smokehouse” there sure isn’t very much on the menu that would qualify as BBQ. The burger was mediocre and definitely not worth $14 and the smoked meat sampler was so overcooked, flavorless and dry, I could barely eat anything except the Texas toast. Will definitely not be returning to this section of the BOB. The service was great. The food was just expensive and not very tasty.
Unless you are friends with the manager, don't expect to get your food until the friends have been served.
Outstanding food! I am from Texas and it is arguably one of the better briskets I’ve eaten in a long time. We will definitely go back.
Great food! A little loud. But definitely would go back!
Dinner was served fast . Got there a bit early for our reservation. They seated us right away.
It was so loud we couldn’t carry on a conversation. The food was fairly good, and our server was good, but there was no ambience except deafening noise
Apps - cheese fondue and wings. Cheese was luke warm at best with something of a pudding skin formation on top. Wings seemed cooked and burned on a way to hot flame. Neither had any real flavor.
Dinner was also luke warm. None of our party was happy with their meals. Flavor was meh.
Food and service was amazing. Highly recommend to everyone
Great food and service.
With it being our first time going, we wanted to keep an open mind. However, our server didn't seem very welcoming, and when my fiancee had a question about the spiciness level of the special sauce on the burger, the server said it was nothing to worry about.
Fast forward to dessert, they don't put the price of the cheesecake of the day on the menu, and when we ordered a slice, it was $10 for one slice and we didn't realize it until we got the bill. Our server did not notify us of the price either.
Our appetizer came with our food instead of before our food, our food was lukewarm, and our server seemed a bit impatient. I don't think we will be coming back. We love BBQ which is why we tried it, but we will go elsewhere.
Food and service was good. Music was too loud to hear the server or have a conversation with your date.
Service was very good but the food was not impressive at all. My daughter ordered a drink and it was undrinkable. She had the same drink at the bar upstairs and it was great. Was so looking forward to enjoy a birthday dinner at Gilly’s and ended up very disappointed. Love the B.O.B however. Always have been thrilled to go there. We’ll certainly go again, just not to Gilly’s.
We had a good experience. The food was good and the service was fast!
We went to Gilly's right before a show at 20 Monroe. Our waiter was extremely nice. He forgot to give us sauce for the meat , but as soon as I asked he was right on it. We were sat right away and the we ate and got to the show right on time. The food was delicious!
I was super impressed with our server, Brendan, however the food and drinks were just ok. I expected better quality pulled pork. It was a bit dry.
We went prior to show at Van Andel - service was not good. Waited very long for drinks, twice we watched our order sit at end of bar for 5 minutes while waiter tossed french fries - our food was ok at best. Table of 6
Excellent food and service!
We had a lovey night. The food was great our waitress was wonderful. I would highly recommend this place.
The cornbread was AMAZING! Great music and service. Loud in there with the high ceilings etc., but overall a great experience.
While it was busy with holiday parties and loud, it was pleasant and our server was on top of things. I had o wait for my table and our food exceeded expectations. I also really appreciated the attention to detail given to the food allergies at the table... especially on a busy night! Gilly's is a family favourite and this visit reminded us why.
Oysters were delicious as was the rest of the meal. Everyone was friendly and the place has plenty to do after the meal was over. We went to the bar for a bit and listened to live music followed by a comedy show, which was really good. We had a great time at Gilly's and at The Bob!
The service was extremely slow, even after we told our waitress we had a show that evening - which we were late for. It took us 40 minutes to receive our mediocre meals. My fish was overcooked. The atmosphere was nice. It was a little loud, but tolerable. I did not feel that we received good value for the price we paid.
Nice to have a reservation at Gilly's on a busy evening after a concert. Food was OK, not exceptional, except for the smoked chicken which my husband loved. Service was not very good but our waitress sure tried. She was very busy. So, OK for convenience, but food and service on the night we went was average, through no fault of the staff who tried really hard. They were just under staffed.
My ‘buffalo cauliflower’ had no buffalo. And my burger was undercooked. My boyfriend got the beer cheese and pretzels. And he got 3 pretzel bites with his cheese. Really underwhelming.
Good BBQ flavors and some more unusual sides. It was a little loud, as the location is next two a live music venue. The server was wonderful and the beer cheese thing was great. I particularly liked the Caribbean BBQ flavor. Portions were large and filling.
Music is way to loud and Friday's nights music was terrible!!!! Very hard to carry on a conversation. Might try again but if that loud again will find another area restaurant to make a reservation at.
Dinner before a show! It was great : )
My boyfriend and I went to Gilly’s last Friday and had an upsetting experience. I had received a $50 gift card from my workplace for the Gilmore restaurants so we decided to use this treat at Gilly’s, a place we normally would not go to because of the cost. At the end of our meal when we went to pay with our gift card, we were told the gift cards were not working that day and our waitress would have to see if they were fixed. She came back and said they could not accept the card and offered a 10% discount. We were not told upon arrival about the gift cards being down, there were no signs, nothing. All we received was $5.00 off our $50.00 bill. I found this to be very frustrating and felt that the restaurant should have honored their cards or at least showed more concern for people who went with the intent of using a gift card and were not made aware this was not a possibility until after their meal. Had they told us at the beginning, we would have chosen another restaurant. Overall it was a disappointing experience at Gilly’s.
Had a great time there and the food was excellent. The staff was polite and made sure we were happy with our time there.
Food was very good and reasonably priced. Location was perfect for dinner then a performance at Van Andel.
Very average food, you could get this quality of food at applebees. We got a burger and the pork butt sandwich, burger was not good pork butt was very tough and not cut into small enough pieces to be in a sandwich. Will not be coming back
We weren't sure how we would feel about the change in 'menu' to BBQ, since we had gone to Gilly's a number of times before it switched, but we were pleasantly surprised by it. Brandon was fun, energetic and knowable about the menu. The food was plentiful, good and so glad there were some gluten free options too! Thanks for a great meal! We will return.
Our service was very good. Our server was polite and answered our questions about the food and beverages. Our only complaint was that the food didn't come out quite how it was described in the menu and it wasn't completely hot. It was warm, but we like our food to seem like it just came off the grill or out of the oven. The Mississippi Mud Pie was very tasty, but it also had ice crystals on it.
Over all great food for a great price! My group and I got our food right away which was very impressive!
Caught up with a friend from college. Food was excellent. Very tasty and lots of options. Made my drink to taste. It was perfect. A great place to go. Highly recommend.
Great time, great food, a little to loud for conversation.
Well between your ( open table app) and gilleys we did not have a table and they would not accommodate us so we could not eat. Because we did not have a reservation because we made it through open table turns out was very open at all!
I was disappointed with the host. I was called to verify reservation. They told me to come early n we would b seated then orders would b promptly taken at 5pm. Host was rude we were waiting at the bar n had a drink. We did not get seated until 530ish. The bar staff n restraunt staff were amazing n the food was fabulous!!
Really need to educate the host staff on customer service and being polite. They were not that busy!!
Awesome food, and great environment!
