Gimaro Seafood & Steak, Montgomeryville PA

I recently dined at Gimaro Seafood and Steak in Montgomeryville, PA. I stayed overnight at the Comfort Inn & Suites and decided to walk across the parking lot and give it a try. It looked to be a very cozy and warm neighborhood restaurant. I was totally caught off guard as the gazillion beers on tap caught my eye and the menu ranged from burgers, filet mignon, snow crab legs, & salmon.

Friends had told me that I had to try the frenched pork ribs, which are bourbon glazed and practically fall off the bone their so tender. They weren’t kidding! Tender and juicy with a drizzle of slightly spicy/sweet sauce bourbon sauce. Of course I had to “pair” this (ha ha) with a cold pint of Yuengling beer. I used to live in PA and this was a favorite of mine. It was a great way to begin the “start” of the “end” of my day.

I was in the mood for a good burger so I ordered the blue cheese burger. I always hesitate to order burgers in a restaurant when travelling because I usually have to send it back to the kitchen because “cooked medium” is open for interpretation. Much to my surprise the burger came out perfect with enough blue cheese to satisfy my craving for that “black & blue” taste.

I’d definitely go back, the service was great – the bartender was friendly and interesting and knew exactly when to talk and when not to hang around. That’s hard to find! I wish I’d had one more night on my trip, I’m a huge seafood lover and I would have liked to try the grilled salmon with Cajun seasoning. It looked great.

Prices are reasonable and the ambience is a great mix of neighborhood flavor and upscale dining. I’d dare to say the locals have a new favorite spot to stop off and relax after work. I know if I lived there I’d have a barstool with my name on it!
