Jack Gibbons Gardens all about traditions, not trends

Jack Gibbons Gardens

does not follow trends.

Diners are not going

to witness Happy Hours

or Margarita Mondays at

Jack Gibbons.

That is because Jack

Gibbons focuses on what

really matters: great food

and even better company.

The restaurant reportedly

has customers who say

they have not been there

for 25-30 years but come

back and it is just the way

they remember it.

Jack Gibbons Gardens

— or Gibbons, as the

regulars call it — opened

in 1922 as a speakeasy.

Although times have

changed drastically since

then, the restaurant itself

has not. From the

red leather booths to

the wood-paneled walls,

Jack Gibbons is truly

timeless.

In a time where chain

restaurants are on every

corner, Gibbons has become

even more special

and unique. From the second

a diner sits and is instantly

delivered delicious

warm bread, three-bean

salad and coleslaw, before

even a glance at the menu,

it is easy to know one is

about to have one of the

best meals of his or her

life. From surf and turf to

fried chicken, Gibbons has

something to satisfy any

craving.

Gibbons has been described

as a “generational

place” that sees everyone

from grandfathers and fathers

to their grandchildren

who dine there.

A secret to that success

is that the restaurant’s staff

does not experience the

type of turnover seen in

some chain restaurants. Its

employees have worked

there for years, striving

for a “Cheers” vibe

with which the bartender

knows the customers,

what they’re having, and

the friends they bring with

them.
