Womens bathroom was, lets say, unusable and my GF had to go next door to a different restaurant to use the facilities. Had to get up a couple times to get our own stuff from inside. We were given ketchup to go with my fries, the waitress came and asked to borrow it before I got to use any of it. We all have food at the table and she comes to take our condiments while there are several tables around us with ketchup and haven't been served their food yet. So my GF goes to get us another ketchup from inside, I pour some out for my fries, and one minute later, the same waitress comes back to 'borrow' my ketchup again. What the F lady?
I've tried several chowders around Portland throughout the weekend and Gilberts was hands down the best. I also had the lobster special, which is a simple boiled lobster with no frills, but the price was the best on the whole strip. Though we had a few gripes, we would definitely go back to eat there again
I have eaten here twice in 3 days both for dinner and have found the food to be excellent! Prices are reasonable and food is plenty. Would go back again and again. Shrimp and Lobster are great! Casual atmosphere with attentive service!
It's called Gilbert's Chowder House for a reason - the chowder is awesome. Not to mention its casual, down-to-earth, seat yourself, be patient with the help (what's your hurry), comfy atmosphere. Super Seafood is my favorite - perfect with a cold beer. Go! Order Chowder! Love Gilbert's!
