Been going to Gilbert's for years and it is consistently good. Best burgers ever. The chicken and salmon are cooked fresh with each order. The homemade quiche is fabulous but you have to be lucky since it is not always available.

From sandwiches to grilled fish, you will love this NY style dinner type eatery. Not pretentious or fancy, but really tasty freshly prepared foods. You place your order at the counter and go to your table. From then on you have a waiter to bring your food and anything else you need. Family run and the owners are usually around... More

We're Brits who have been fortunate to be in Fort Lauderdale a couple of times a year in the last few years. And when we are in town we never skip Gilberts. Latest visit (2 days ago) took us straight from the airport to collect our take away and the burger with onions and mushrooms was as good as ever.... More

In spite of great reviews I am not one to expect perfection, with that being said, I was extremely disappointed burger was bland bun was stale and when I said something I was made to feel like it had more to do with me, that I was at fault because I wasn't satisfied, biased reviews was probably accurate

Gilbert's is located in a shopping complex off 17th street. If you're trying to find it, it's located behind the Embassy Suites hotel in the Publix grocery store complex. Gilbert's gets great reviews from many people. The restaurant is an upscale fast food setting. Nice lights, photos and music playing. Their burgers are 8oz in size. My husband and I... More

We had a one-night layover in Fort Lauderdale, and were looking for a restaurant that wouldn't break our budget. We found Gilbert's on Yelp and saw the fantastic reviews on TripAdvisor, so we made the short drive to the Harbor Shops area to grab a bite. As we walked up to the restaurant, a gentleman standing outside asked us if... More

Not only is the food cooked perfectly but also the owners are so kind and welcome you with open arms. The staff are also nice and attentive. It's a wonderful find for burgers, ribs, salads, and wonderful desserts. Very efficient and friendly service every time that we have been there.

We had pre-arranged a dinner on Friday night with a set manner of three choices chosen ahead of time. We arrived at 7:15 and an area was reserved for our party of 50! The service was exceptional. Everyone commented on how attentive the staff and owner was. The size of the portions was more than anyone could eat. Those who... More

Gilbert's has a variety of burgers, wraps, sandwiches and salads. The food is great and the staff are warm and friendly. Although this is not a full service restaurant, you place your order and it's brought to you, the staff still come by to check on you, refill drinks and clean your table.
