Gulliver’s evokes images of 18th century England, Jonathan Swift, the adventures of Captain Lemuel Gulliver, and the gracious hospitality of an English roadside inn. Its warm, inviting interior is a place you'll want to return with your friends and family again and again- whether to share a round of drinks in the lively pub or celebrate a social occasion with a sumptuous Prime Rib feast.
It isn’t hard to find a restaurant serving prime rib and steak in Orange County, but how many can seat you at John Wayne’s favorite table? The charismatic screen legend was a frequent guest at Gulliver’s and it’s easy to see why. The portions are huge, the service is friendly, and most importantly, the beef is cooked to perfection.
Come to Gulliver’s and travel back in time to 18th century England. Escape from the stresses of the 21st century and enjoy a dining experience you’ll long remember. Your English dining experience at Gulliver’s includes an experienced, gracious staff, a hearty meal and comfortable environment. Guests are surrounded by a veritable museum of leaded glass pieces, pewter and ceramic objects, and a collection of prints from Hogarth, Rowlandson and other Gulliver’s Travels illustrators.
The menu offers something for every taste, and lovers of Prime Rib will savor the choice cuts. Hand-selected beef (corn-belt) is slow roasted in a unique patented oven system to assure flavorful, tender and juicy Prime Rib dinners. Three different cuts are offered: Brobdingnagian, the biggest, best and bone in; Gulliver’s Prime Cut; and the thinly sliced Traditional English Cut.
Other specialties include in-house aged Steaks, Châteaubriand, Atlantic Salmon, Rack of Lamb, Baby Back Ribs and roasted Long Island Duck.
