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...More

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...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!

When we ate here last century, their prime focus was the prime rib; with good reason. Their chefs made the best we ever tasted. When you added sides like the creamed corn and creamed spinach, you have achieved epicurean ecstasy. Our fears that the expanded...More

I find eating at the bar to have a bit better service than the dining room. Good food either way. I don't go a lot because of price. The decorations are amazing and even better during Halloween and Yule.

This place is a Newport Beach icon. It has been here for more years that I care to remember. It's a British/Pub-themed restaurant, complete with Wench servers! I ordered the escargot for an appetizer. When the gentleman brought me the dish, he told me twice...More

I would call the restaurant and ask them directly. I would think that would be the most reliable info. I would expect a Thanksgiving menu for a given price.
