I really liked this place. It has a small menu but lots of daily specials - both of which lead to really good food. I had the coconut shrimp and the steak sandwich - both of which were 1) hot, 2)fresh and 3) delicious. My comrades had the fries - cut from fresh potatoes! Adding to the place is the... More

We both like our burgers done well and Gilbert’s is the one place that always delivers on the non-red with thick juicy burgers with amazing tasty fries. The meticulous service of the bus help and the owners is always an added plus at a ‘burger place’

Four of us stopped in for lunch last month and enjoyed it very much. The food was great the service was outstanding. It was quick and the prices were very reasonable. The key lime pie for dessert was enjoyed by all. Don't expect a fancy restaurant as it is more like a café in a mall.

You could eat inside the restaurant or sit out on the patio. Food was great and service was fast. Extensive menu. Our group ate numerous seafood dishes which were all good. Want to go back for more.

We were hoping for a great traditional menu, with excellent service and a quintessential American setting. We got exactly that. Best start to the day you could hope for.

Located in the Harbor Shops, the decor is 1960's retro with a modern twist in the colorful lights. The restaurant justly has a great reputation for its burgers, cooked of the best meat and (to people from the UK) huge in size, served with fries with their skins on or sweet potato fries, which were delicious. The grill items and... More

After reviewing all the positive TA reviews, my husband and I visited this restaurant for dinner in mid-April. The portions were large and the burgers cooked as requested. Free soda refills are offered. The key lime pie was just as good as we've had in Key West. Gilbert's is within walking distance of many hotels near the cruise port and... More
