I have a broken leg right now and the owner greeted us and couldn't have been nicer. The burgers were delicious and well worth the calories. The salmon was also delicious as well as the wrap and the sweet potato fries were so good. Will definitely go there again maybe even this week :)

We enjoyed an excellent meal here before heading to the Broward Center for a 7:30 performance, and it's the kind of place we will happily come back to for dinner after weekend matinees. M'lady ordered sesame seared tuna with Asian cole slaw ($13) with a modestly-priced glass of, as I recall, pinot grigio. She was served a generous portion, more... More

Stayed over in Fort Lauderdale for a night on our trip from Orlando to the Keys, found Gilberts had some great reviews on TA so gave it a go. Was a little difficult to find but that was most likely down to my Sat Nav. The restaurant is on a retail park tucked in a corner. On entering we were... More

Made a point to visit when in ft la. Lauderdale. Enjoyed burgers. Very good. Recommend the fried onions on the burger. Crunchy onion strings on top of your burger. I don't think you need to make a special trip though.

Tried for the first time. Came for something in between lunch and supper/dinner - hence an "in-between" meal. Enjoyed a superb home-made roasted tomato soup - great taste and depth of flavor, with plenty of real tomatoes in there. Next up was an oriental grilled chicken salad that came with water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and a tangy peanut sauce as... More

An earnest owner will greet you on entering, and extol the virtues of the food. (She gets an "E" for effort.) Then, oddly, you proceed down a fast food type serving line, pay, go get your own paper cup drinks, then go sit and wait for your food. It's like the management can't decide if they can pull off true... More

This is an unpretentious, popular restaurant in a strip mall. The service is friendly and personal, and the owner makes a point of welcoming and chatting to the diners. We ate here twice and the burgers are undeniably good, fresh, and meaty. Recommend the sweet potato fries. Drinks include free refills. Very clean and staff are quick to clear tables.... More

This restaurant located in the Harbor Shops Mall right behind Embassy Suites was the perfect place for a casual meal. From the moment we walked in until we left the staff was friendly and welcoming. You order at the counter and when the meals are ready they are brought to your table. The food was really good - great chicken... More

This is a diner. I gave it a rating of four because of that, as I do not want to compare it with a full blown restaurant. However, as far as diners go, this one is excellent. You order your food, pay for it, then you sit and wait. The service is reasonably fast and I notice the owners work... More
