We really enjoy the food at Gibson’s. Everything we have had has been good. For those of us who don’t drink alcohol it would be nice to have a cup of coffee with our meal.

This Restaurant is beautiful. Situated directly behind the Home net at the top of the Arena. Very friendly staff, a good Pub Menu and Selection of Draft and Canned Drinks. There are certain areas where you can either watch the game from the rail or have a big T.V with Rogers 20 on so you don’t miss a moment of action.

Great place to go before the Rangers game. Service was excellent and our server was very polite and helpful. Food was good as well but very expensive. That is the only factor that would prohibit me from going back.

Letting us know to enter door #1. I walk with a cane and we came thru the main doors only to find we had to walk around the building to door #1. Otherwise, great experience.

Portions were a little smaller than usual (wrap) and a little more expensive. Not sure the best value for what we paid. Everything still tasted good. Service was excellent.

It was another wonderful experience. It had been quite a few years since I was there last and brought back good memories of how nice it was. Thank you. Just wish the Rangers would have won

Didn't like that we had to wait outside until our exact reservation time. I feel we could have been let in 10 to 15 minutes before teh reservation as long as it was after 5:30pm.

Friendly service but no offers of drink refills etc. The sweet potato fries were delicious. The "loaded" nachos were small and basic. Not alot of flavourful. Mostly chopped lettuce and tomatoes. The jalapeños poppers were bland and didn't have alot of flavour to them. It was nice to sit down for lunch before the game but the food (with the exception of the sweet potato fries) was mediocre at best.

The food was very good, hot, good presentation, delicious, but the service was SLOW!! 35 minutes between ordering & getting the food and the place was not overly busy. People beside us who came in after us waited more than 40 minutes for food. It would appear to be a kitchen problem as there were enough servers present to look after everybody. i would go back before a Ranger's game but just make sure that I had enough time to eat so I wouldn't miss the opening face-off.

It’s convenient. It’s not the ritz. Bar menu. Service is friendly but perhaps need to pick it up a bit. Drinks, taking orders, the bill seem to take too long.
