What a wonderful night. From top to bottom Gibraltar Lancaster is fast becoming our favorite place. Love the style of the restaurant. The menu is diverse and everything is wonderfully prepared. Our service from Graham and his trainee was TOP notch. Our party of six had one bottle of wine, probably four apps, various mixed drinks and three or four shared deserts for less than 100 per person.
We love this place and its well worth the 30 min drive to get there.

A day of glum turned into a day of fine hospitality by our waiter Graham. He is highly knowledgeable in delectable cuisine and has such a pleasant demeanour!

As I’ve always said, my experience with the food at Gibraltar never disappoints!

For starters we sampled the bluepoint and stellar bay oysters which by the way, tasted not only refreshingly delightful but there wasn’t even a single grain of sand or a missed piece of shell! How do you beat that level of detail!?

The Caesar salad with anchovies has always been an easy go-to. This time, we opted to top it of with grilled shrimp and the crunch of the fresh, crisp romaine told me my salad wasn’t pre-made and refrigerated.

Followed shortly for our main course was the Local Angus New York Strip with spinach, mushrooms and mashed potatoes. You could tell from the taste of the meat that it came from antibiotic-free raised cattle.

The other serving was the Seared sea scallops complimented nicely by carefully layered potatoes cooked to perfection (Crisp Pomme Anna) and sautéed spinach as well.

Let me say, that I needed not a dash of salt or pepper throughout the course of dinner. The dishes were very well seasoned to my taste and my buds were very content!
We were waited on hand and foot with occasional check-ins from Graham to make sure our experience was progressing nicely.

In an effort to get back home in a timely manner, we ordered the cheesecake to go. Let me tell you this: I had thought that I’d write this review at my convenience. I was wrong. I absolutely hate cheesecake! My husband wanted it so I simply went along with his choice. Now I’m sitting here halfway through this dessert without wanting to share and I am not sorry. I have obviously not tried Gibraltar’s cheesecake! Now, I am in love!

Overall, a win with this trip. The owner as always pays attention to his customers and knows his craft.As a transplant to the area, this is at the top of the list of eateries I’ll happily dine at for a long time.

Our waiter was fine. Whoever poured water for us when we sat down spilled it when pouring, never cleaned it up or mentioned it. The food was ok. I had the crab/mozarella omelet. At least I think it had crab in it. The cheese was kind of one giant wad. My wife had a salad with apple slices. There were maybe three 1/4" slices. It was as though they had one apple left and were trying to make it last for the entire seating. I've eaten dinner there before and would go back for that again. I'll skip brunch, though.

Absolutely amazing dinner experience. We drive over an hour each way and it is worth it every time. Oysters were to die for... scallops and lobster linguine could not have been better. Wine list is great with good price points. Manager Sal was was very kind to us and ended our dinner with a special treat that was much appreciated.

Kitchen service was very slow. We had a 6:45 reservation and didn't finish dinner until around 9:30. It took a long time to get dinner served. Our waiter was on task so we assume the kitchen was behind. Food was well prepared.

We had very high expectations when visiting Gibraltar in Lancaster. The greeting and service was friendly. The bread was definitely lacking. I had the salmon dinner, and it melted in my mouth. My husband had the lobster pasta, and was very disappointed. The lobster was so tough that he had a hard time cutting it with his knife. The atmosphere is cold and not very welcoming. I doubt that we will return.

I go to Gibraltar’s quite often and bring a mat many ladies lunch to the location. This past time unfortunately our server was literally out to lunch, we had to constantly ask for water and we were given our bill three times before I asked if we were finished. Very disappointing for the price of the food and drink

This was our first visit for brunch and it was very nice. The assortment of small pastries on the table was nice. It did take quite a bit of time to receive our food, but once it arrived it was very tasty. I still think though that they have an issue with freshness of their seafood. The crab in my husband's omelet was very "fishy" smelling and tasting. He didn't become ill from it, but for a "seafood" restaurant, this is the second time we've had seafood that was not really fresh. Opt for something else unless it's the "special" fish of the day, that's always good.
