Description: 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.

Best Ribeye on the planet with incredible seasoning on this aged beef masterpiece. I recommend adding their truffle mushrooms and a glass of Michael David Petit Petit to make this meal an experience you will not forget. The coconut cake is fabulous if you still have room...

Starting with the good. The service was top notch. Our wait person knew the menu and all the options. The drinks were well made, if pricey. $21 for a glass of wine from a $15 bottle at any store in the area. You’re better off getting a cocktail. The house Manhattan was only $11 for makers. I had the top sirloin with Brussels sprouts and risotto. It was not real risotto. It was creamed rice with mushrooms. My steak was correctly cooked. But was tough. While it didn’t taste like it had been frozen, the texture was not the best. The marbling was non existent and it had more than a little gristle. Not what one would expect from a place with these prices. Mostly seemed like a dressed up outback with higher prices.

We enjoyed our meals - salmon on cedar plank cooked rare (per request) and roasted vegetables plate were very tasty. Menu good, cappuccino good (and hot), atmosphere and decor good - a bit overpriced. Did not have wine or mixed drink due in part to prices.
