Food was good. Chef's "hottest burger" could have been spicier, but I like things very spicy. Seared ahi tuna and salmon were great. Asian Cole slow was the best we've had. The fries, regular and sweet potato, didn't live up to the hype. Biggest complaint was the obsessive attention from the staff. I got up to use the men's room... More

Seems like nothing special from the outside but the food is wonderful. Try the ribs and the key lime pie! The hamburgers are really good too!

So glad we hit this yummy place. Mrs Gilbert welcomed us an took our order at the country. The 8 ounce top beef thick burger was enjoyed by the youngest and the oldest. Juicy and so tasty. The regular fresh and sweet potato fries were fantastic! The Gilbert family kept checking on us to make sure we were happy and... More

The owner was extremely friendly and involved with the business! All servers were very attentive and friendly! Burgers were great! One of the burgers was slightly over-cooked, but it was still delicious! I... More

Found the place on Tripsdvisor while on a business trip. Had the Chef's hottest burger which was very good, prepared perfectly. Upon walking in we were warmly greeted by the staff and made to feel the most important person in the restaurant at the time. Service was fast and friendly. Will return if back in the area.

We ordered grilled wings crispy and homemade blue cheese both were excellent and we had a 1/2 lb burger cooked exactly the way ordered with onion... More

I recently tried Gilbert's based on all the great reviews on tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed. The staff were incredibly friendly and the burger was fantastic -- cooked just right, high quality meat, and huge. I don't usually eat such a big hamburger but it was so good, I couldn't stop. I'll definitely be coming back here with my friends.

Go here for the ribs and burgers! Best ever. Have the Key Lime pie which is homemade! I cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale when possible because of this restaurant!
