They are famous for the prime rib..which is as good as it gets, but also well know for the cream style corn. Maybe I am.jusy not a cream corn connoisseur, but it was ok.. I would have a hard time saying the best ever.. it was a bit different, more creamier, but I think I would want more cornier....if that's... More

We go here every year with family for an Christmas dinner, they decorate the restaurant with a lovely tree and have a fire going to make for a warm and friendly. The Prime rib is one of their feature items on the menu but they have a lot of other items to choose from. I myself like the rack of... More

If you are going to visit Gulliver's - be sure to come around Halloween. They go all out for the decorations! The ambiance is always cozy and while the lighting is dim, the food is great. The prime rib is excellent and the corn that comes with it is beyond delicious. I have never had a bad meal here. The... More

This restaraunt specializes in prime rib and steaks. Very good! Having said that, they offer a wonderful tossed chicken Cobb salad. Service is good and lots of parking. Usually not super crowded.

While staying at a nearby airport Hilton, we tried this place for an early Friday evening dinner. Seems like most of the food had been held in an oven for hours, and then served overcooked. Medium-Rare Prime Rib was tough to chew. BBQ Prime Rib Bones were dried out on the outside, and whatever meat was there was overcooked. Yorkshire... More

We, the wife and I, have been there twice in the last few months, on Groupons. The atmosphere is 18th century English. Meals are well presented and unhurried. The prime rib, Yorkshire pudding and creamed spinach are all better than I have had at 5 Crowns recently and with a better ambience.

Walking into Gulliver's Restaurant, you are warmly greeted. You are seated within minutes of your reservation. We have been here several times and the food is to die for. The house salad is delicious with chopped egg and bay shrimp with a mild dressing. We ordered the biggest prime rib with a bone which is between 22-24 ounces. It was... More

They offer the full menu and a bar menu in the bar. There is expensive seating available in the bar as well if you're not up for a more formal meal. We enjoyed the food!
