I have lived in the 'hood for 7 years and heard tell of Gambol's Crab Soup. Never stepped foot inside the restaurant. What you hear about soup is not hype though. Their Crab Soup is out of this world!! I wonder how my husband had the discipline to leave 1/2 the cup of soup for me to taste - it is that good. Then I realized... he kept it for me out of love. He loves me so much that he couldn't enjoy this delicious soup on his own. It is truly thick and creamy and doesn't hold back on the crab. I savored chunks of real crab and the spice was real. Very tantalizing soup, and I have to go back for more.

Although it looks like your standard neighborhood dive on the outside, Gambols has some great eats at nice prices. The menu isn't huge, but what they have they do right. If you like seafood, you can't go wrong with the crab soup. It's incredible. Thick,and creamy broth that has an bisque-like consistency with big chunks of real crab meat, not that imitation stuff that is actually Pollock. The burgers are good too. Try the Smokehouse Burger. It has a bar with a digital jukebox, and a nice crowd of regulars, and great bartenders, and the other side is booths, and tables for a sit down meal. Downstairs is a pool room with 3 - count 'em - 3 pool tables. The pool room also has it's own rest rooms, and there's speakers on the walls so you can hear your songs on the jukebox while you play.

My friend and I stop in Gambol's whenever we are in the area --- boy does it bring back memories! This was our hot spot when we were younger and it's nice to be able to go back and things are still the same. The service is quick and friendly the food is darn good.

Where do you go for great home taste cooking with an awesome menu and with a great friendly neighborhood environment? Gambol's. Pleasant dining atmosphere with a menu from burgers to steak and from fish to lobster bisq to die for. They a complete dinner menu and an excellent choice of sanwiches for that small hunger need. Their clams are a favorite with enough to fill that big appetite at a great price. With15% off early dinner specials, the food prices are a reasonable and worth every bite. Pool, shuffleboard, large TV's, jukebox and pinball with all kind of games including video games for the kids are available anytime. Its a great place to bring the family for fun and food. I've been going here with my large family for over 8 years and never been diappointed. There is plenty of offstreet parking on site for ease. I recommend you make it a family night at Gambol's and you won't be dissappointed.
