I’ve been to this restaurant before right after they opened up again and it wasn’t as good of an experience but so many were trying to get re acclimated with all the new rules but overall okay. It had been a couple of months since then and so much better. They are all working hard to keep things going through these tough times.

This time around was not as good. Must have had a different chef. I saw a bunch of food on the phantom gourmet show featuring The Gavel House but nothing I order seems to compare. I guess they must make special items for the show. Oh well - live and learn.

Excellent food - a hidden gem. Try the crab rangoon pizza - it is delicious. And start with the Nacho's you can't go wrong at this place.

Love the Gavel. We have been several times and have never had a bad meal until today. The meal was a salad. A simple Gavel House Salad which is mixed greens and garden veggies at least that’s what the menu said, which I take it would be cucumbers, carrots maybe some colorful peppers etc. What came to my table was a Caesar salad with scallops. Nope not what’s I ordered. Sent it back and got a bowl full of mixed green (no garden) veggies and some cold, small, and hard scallops. Trying to explain to the server that what was given to me was not what was written up on the menu and he tried to tell me that that was their garden salad. Lol. I sent it back because I was not paying $18 for a bowl of lettuce and cold, hard scallops. I went there hoping to get my usual the West coast salad but they took it off the menu. The Skillet Nachos were burnt and the cheese was nonexistent. My sons Buffalo chicken tenders were a little over cooked and my daughters shrimp tacos had so much pickled cabbage on it, it was soggy. Not sure who the cooks are but they’re terrible. When you can’t make a garden salad, there’s a problem. We won’t be going back. Maybe once covid is done and they’re not trying to get everyone in and out to make profits. Until then, We wish them the best. We did tip the waiter over 20% , 1. It wasn’t his fault and 2. It’s a struggle out there, and he was doing a great job. He was hustling.

Had reservations, and still had to wait 35 min to get seated. Then food was just ok. Definitely no social distancing at this place. They fill all tables, with some tables very close. It was worse inside, with some diners at different parties side by side within 2 feet of each other.

Enjoyed eating outside in such a beautiful day. As we were eating there were quite a few hornets flying around our table which was annoying .Has to get up a couple of time to seat them away. The waitress apologized.

The food was great, as was the sangria...will be sure to return!

This was actually my second visit within a week and the service it is still atrocious; they go out of their way to tell you you have 90 minutes and then you end up waiting eight or nine minutes for the waitress to come over to take your initial drink order. This place on both occasions seems understaffed. Sirloin tips were undercooked and beef stew was Luke warm at best. Won’t be going back.
