Our Hotel Concierge recommended Gilbert's to us for lunch and we're glad he did. Friendly local place with good food and courteous service. We will definitely go back to Gilbert's when in Ft. Lauderdale.

Stopped here because our daughter loves to rate burgers that she eats at restaurants. We all loved the burgers here and the staff was fun and accommodating. We were all stuffed when finished. If you are looking for a good burger, this is definitely the place to go. It is located in a strip mall setting but don't let that... More

We had fish and burgers. You place your order at the counter and then they give you a number and deliver it to your table. Everyone liked the food. They went the extra distance as far as service to make sure we were happy. Overall a great experience and I would recommend this place.

Great hickory burger with good fries. Onion are also on point. A bit pricy but worth the money. Actually made my burger rare which is rare nowadays..pun not intended.

Gilbert's is found in a store front located in the Publix mall behind the Hotel where we were staying while waiting to catch a cruise. You order your food at the counter and it is brought to you at your table. Although burgers are clearly the focus here, there are lots of other choices available like steaks, chicken and fish....

Our burgers were supurb and cooked to perfection. The fries were obviouly handcut from fresh patatoes, not from a frozen bag. Fried to perfection. The owners spent a lot of effort interacting with the customers. Very casual. Fair price. If you ate not from Ft Lauderdale, Gilberts is not really on 17th. It is behind the Embassey Suites Hotel.

Thick juicy burgers of top quality beef cooked to order, with delectable cheeses, served with delicious rolls, surpasses the best steak place in town. Can't say enough to laud Gilbert's food quality. Also very accommodating service in relaxed atmosphere. We all loved this restaurant.
