We went on a Saturday night and the place was almost empty but it was very nicely decorated, food was really good. We received great service from everyone, but our waitress Maria was very nice and attentive. The old fashioned was good.

About the restaurant
**Note: we reserve tables for walk-ins. If you can’t find your preferred time, feel free to join us in person.**

This tavern is certainly an ode to Florida located in Shenandoah – one of the oldest neighborhoods in the City of Miami – utilizing local ingredients in the menu and showcasing a beautiful Blue Marlin mounted above the bar. With our walls adorned with taxidermy, you would not expect to see a grand piano and to also enjoy a decadent meal with cocktails.

Teamed up with Chef Michael Beltran, is seasoned Chef Kris Huseby, the new executive chef for the property. Chefs Beltran and Huseby have a history of collaboration – previously working together in one of Miami’s best restaurants. The duo has created a superb menu for The Gibson Room.

We can always count on the Gibson Room for their consistency! Last night’s meal did not disappoint. Great food (tamal and burger are amazing), great ambience, and great service. Can’t ask for more.

I’m always surprised this place isn’t packed. The food is among the best in Miami. The only thing missing is outdoor seating.
