Great Burgers Here!

We tried Gilbert's for the first time, and were very pleased with the food and service. The burgers were excellent, cooked just right and full of flavor. We also tried the french fries, sweet potato fries, and onion straws. The staff was very attentive and professional, and the restaurant had a... read more

On a recent trip to Fort Lauderdale, my family was looking for a casual place to grab a burger and Gilbert's 17th Street Grill fit the bill! At Gilbert's 17th Street Grill, you order and pay at a register and then a waiter/waitress brings the meals. The service was amazing! Our waiter immediately brought over different condiments, in addition, to... More

If you want a great hamburger and maybe even some fancier toppings that are delicious (think Brie or blue cheese etc) GO HERE!! it's family owned and operated and I'm glad they've made the Harbour Shops their home!!

Great place for a great big hamburger. Cooked to your specification. The owner was so friendly and so were the employees. Fast courteous service. Make sure you try one of their home made cookies, too!

We went there after reading the reviews and we didn't regret it. The burger was really good. The chicken wings where amazing, we had half fried and half grilled, i couldn't pick which one was my favourite. I also had to have the homemade cheesecake after seing it in the pictures, and it was WOW. I met the owner, and... More

We would never have found this place if it hadn't been for Trip Advisor! Really good burgers and the best sweet potato fries, I've had. The staff were all very friendly and the complimentary cookie was delicious. I also had a really good glass of wine. Thoroughly recommend Gilbert's!

A family run, interesting place. You order at the counter when you arrive, pay for your food and then they deliver it to your table. Atmosphere isn't much, very casual BUT the food is delicious. Everything we tried was wonderful, and my burger was made exactly as I wanted it and I groaned with pleasure with every bit. YUM! Highly... More

We had a party of 4 and enjoyed our lunch at Gilbert's. The gentleman taking our order at the counter was kind enough to keep me know that their portion of chicken tenders was large and came with a side. He saw I was ordering for two small children and said he didn't want us to order too much. I... More

My boyfriend and I loveeee trying new spots, this came up on Yelp. We were both satisfied with our burgers, very delicious. All that was missing was milkshakes (they don't make them *sad face*) but very cheap, definitely should try if you pass by it!
