Named for a renowned Kansas City restaurateur who set the standard for impeccable hospitality, J. Gilbert’s Wood-Fired Steaks & Seafood is an upscale restaurant known for its stellar service, cozy bar scene, quality cuts of beef and exceptional seafood preparations. While we compete in the fine dining category, we have carved a unique niche in offering an upscale experience with down-to-earth value to reflect our Midwestern values — where dishes always include the sides. Our wood-fired grill lends unrivaled flavor to our menu selections, adding authenticity to our exceptional steakhouse experience. Maintaining our wood-fired grill isn’t the easiest way to operate. But we do it because it makes our Prime steaks and fresh seafood taste better. And unlike other steakhouses, our exceptional dishes always include the sides. Our food is consistently excellent, and we’re really proud of it.
