When you hear the name it won't be a surprise if you are reminded of the classic tale of Gulliver's Travels. Being around for four decades is not an easy thing, and to remain a favorite Prime Rib restaurant in Southern California is no mean feat. Gulliver's is known for their hand picked, corn fed beef, which is slow roasted in a customized, patented oven for that distinct flavor and succulence. Gulliver's is equally well known for their house specialties of prime steaks, Chateaubriand, salmon, rack of lamb, baby back ribs and roasted Long Island duck. When you enter the restaurant, you will be transported back to 18th-century England, by being engulfed by a bona fide museum of leaded glass pieces and ceramic objects, and collectible prints of Hogarth, Rowlandson and other Gulliver’s Travels illustrators. It has a charm of an English inn, cozy and inviting with a vibrant pub to celebrate any occasion with a delicious Prime Rib feast. Gulliver's is a great place to unwind and relish the good times.
