This is my second time eating at the Gavel and the food and service really is wonderful. I wish you could make reservations for outdoor seating at this time, but the inside was just recently done and is a great spot to grab a bite with family and/or friends. Highly recommend!

Always great food. The beer selection is a bit short but there's something for any beer drinker plus a full bar with good house specialty drinks. I suggest the ragin cajun boneless wings for a good starter.

Competent, friendly staff. Yummy spring cocktails, and food was above average. Can’t wait to visit this place in the warmer weather and enjoy the outside seating.

Food + Vibe = Immaculate

Love this place! If you’re a local (or not) looking for a good (strong) drink and a variety of options for food (burgers, tacos, pizza, fish pasta) The gavel is the place to go! Show up hungry and make sure you try the skillet nachos 😋

I enjoyed my experience here this past Friday evening. The steak tips and salmon were so delicious. The fall sangria was a great compliment. The calamari was a bit rubbery for my taste. However, the sauce was amazing. I’d highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back to sit outside.

Love the new expanded Gavel! Great job; the place is better than ever now.
They'll be even more offerings once you are able to expand to the outdoors.
As always, Michelle does an excellent job taking care of all the customers.
Thank you.

The shrimp on my salad was not fresh grilled buffalo chicken in my wife's wrap actually
Seemed to be roasted chicken with very little buffalo sauce.

I've eaten here several times before. Previously the food was excellent, but I thought it was just average on my last visit (the buffalo cauliflower was swimming in buffalo sauce and the steak and cheese egg rolls were just OK). The service was great - very quick and very attentive. The ambience would have been a 5 but the AC turned on and it was blowing directly on me for so long that I had to put my winter coat on while seated at the table. I would definitely return as it could have just been an off night. As a plus- I really like being able to make a reservation and have a confirmed table for me!
