Best restaurant we’ve found in this area, compares to Charleston and Washington D.C. area for southern food. Best Fried Green Tomatoes I’ve tried. Definitely a “foodie” gem. We will be back!

Have been to his other 2 restaurants and enjoyed both; his oceanfront 3rd restaurant (12 blocks from my home) is everything you could want it to be; fine dining, casual eating, outside beach bar, music and great, great food! Made a reservation and ate upstairs...More

I have the opportunity to travel the country each week and experience new restaurants. Gilberts was simply fantastic! When I looked at other reviews and saw that there was only one negative review, I figured it was just someone who doesn't understand good food and...More
