Our waiter Ossi was incredible! 2nd time we had the pleasure. Food as always exceeds our expectations. Owners on site and make sure everything runs like clock work as well as personally checking with each table. Definitely worth checking out and supporting this local business you will not be disappointed.......

I decided to take my sister here along with our hubby’s for her birthday celebration and we were not disappointed!! It was a bit crowded however there was a nice lounge area with Cindy seating for us to wait while I table was being prepared. Our server Mike was awesome as well. We took such great care of us. We started with the seafood tower which was a monster but great for the four of us to share!!! Also the crab cakes were delicious. My hubby order the Amish chicken which he is still talking about! My bro in law order the steak phenomenal. I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection. The birthday girl originally ordered the scallops but unfortunately after waiting it was unavailable but rest assured they took care of the inconvenience. She ordered the halibut instead and it exceeded her expectations. Lastly they provide complementary wine toward the end of dinner. Great service, food and atmosphere! Coming back soon

We were a large group of family members. The restaurant made arrangements for us to dine as one party. The food and service were excellent. The halibut special was considered by those in our party who had it to be the best halibut they had ever eaten. The manager was a great help with wine selections. As we had not been together for a year, this will go down as an event to remember. (The bread, however, is not as good as it used to be when Gibraltar was on Harrisburg Pike.)

We very much enjoyed our dinner. Everything we had was great... fish soup, french onion soup, gnocchi and short ribs, and Lobster fettucini. The gnocchi was outstanding. Will get that as my entree when we return. Thank goodness they didnt have awful music playing and we could enjoy our conversation. .

My wife and I went here for a date night and enjoyed our experience. Our server was friendly and attentive. We chose to split an appetizer, side, and main entrée and both loved everything we ordered. We live nearby and typically would head to Lancaster city for a date but will be coming back here again. Overall the best meal I've had in Lancaster.

The restaurant was freezing due to the outdoor dining door being opened and closed. Really put a damper on the evening.
The bread basket came out cold so the butter doesn’t melt on.
Otherwise the food was delicious. The service was amazing as well.

The restaurant is very nice. Our waitress Gabby was very tentative. The prices are a bit expensive for this area, drinks especially. My husband and I both had the filet and mine was OK but his was well done and he ordered medium rare. We sent it back and it came back a little better, but it was still medium with no pink. Quality of the meat was not great for the price. The staff was attentive about trying to please us. It will be awhile until we return.

I took my daughter out to celebrate her birthday. Gibraltar is always a treat. The food was excellent...tasty and well prepared.
I had the mussels which were prepared in a delicious coconut red curry sauce, my daughter had the halibut special which was perfectly cooked and seasoned.. I enjoyed an interesting Fig Blossom martini and we shared a fabulous creme brûlée for dessert.
Service was excellent as well. We will be back.

First time to Gibraltars in some time. We really loved the ambiance, all of the staff was very attentive and helpful. We had the tuna tartar app which was very tasty. I had the the Gibraltars burger and my wife had the lobster fettuccini. Both were very good. I am sure we will be going back again.

We made reservations and had a hi top for 2 at the bar which is what we wanted. We split the mushroom/ polenta appetizer which was out of this world. For entrees I got the halibut special and my sister got the whole Branzini. Both were spectacular and would recommend. Our waiter was exceptional, ambiance was very nice. Great experience, will be back.

The food was wonderful, my appetizer (Kennett Square mushrooms) might be the best appetizer I have ever had. All three in my party were very pleased and had a great time. The service was very good and attentive and the bottle of wine we ordered was delish (however, expensive). We will definitely return.

Food was fine. Staff not particularly friendly. Owner/manager visited every table except ours. Seated us in front of door which was continuously being opened to service outside guests even though there was another door not near indoor patrons. We were very cold.

Highly recommended. Not only were my wife's allergies easy for the server and the kitchen to navigate but my dish (dry aged strip) was one of the better steaks I've had in a while. The outdoor seating was comfortable with the several heat lamps they provided as well.
