J. Gilbert's is an "upscale casual" steakhouse serving prime-aged beef cooked over a mesquite wood-fired grill. Guests enjoy various cuts of steak, fresh seafood (including award-winning crab cakes) & other house made favorites like the Maytag Blue potato chips & chocolate velvet cake. The cozy atmosphere includes fire side dining, rich wood, brick & soft lighting where you can enjoy dinner for two or host a large party. The extensive martini & wine list offers the perfect compliment to an excellent meal delivered with attentive service. J. Gilbert's is open for dinner seven days a week, beginning at 4pm. Reservations are highly recommended.

First time at J Gilberts celebrating a birthday. Did not try the steaks because it was a Friday in Lent but will definitely return again. Excellent service and delicious seafood.

JG’s might be a great steak spot but they are masters at cooking cedar plank maple salmon! Live this entree!!

I am a vegetarian so dinner is a challenge. I know this restaurant is a steak house but my husband and friends love it. Would like to see more vegetarian options that can gave steak or seafood added to the dish.

First time visiting J Gilberts. The food, hostess and waiter was amazing! It was a date night with my wife, we have not had a night together in a long time because we have a 3 yr old at home. It was the first time in a long time I sat and ate a meal that lasted 2 hours.

I can’t wait to go again

Food was awesome, as always.

Waiter was fantastic. Had fun with him playing a joke on our son when ordering his favorite creme brulee, when he told our son they were out of it and watching his face. We all had a huge laugh.

Consistently perfect, every time I done there. Food and service are exceptional. We'll worth the price and the drive, if that might be an issue! Go, enjoy yourself and experience a culinary delight!

We were disappointed in the optional seafood selections that we made to accompany the filets which we ordered. The lobster tail was over done with little flavor and the Alaskan king crab legs were small and the meat in them was meager.

Great service from the greeting at the door until we left the building. Food was delicious! We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the prices which makes this probably the best restaurant in the area for my wife and I. First time but definitely not the last. We finally found a restaurant worth every dollar!
