Our family completely stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant the night before our cruise out of Port Everglades. We walked in and were greeted by one of the friendliest ladies we met on the trip, who turns out to be the owner (with her husband) mom Gilbert. It is a family environment with the husband and daughter working the... More

Casual dining spot. Self order. Burgers were cooked to order. Nice beefy, juicy not over seasoned flavor. I like how the 8oz burger patty was shaped. Roasted tomato and split pea soups were nice ample portion. Coleslaw was good. Buns are not toasted but they will upon request. Cheesecake, cookie, and lava cake tasted nice and fresh. Prompt servers. Nice... More

One of the best burguers that I've tasted in my life. The owner of the restaurante is in charge of it. She takes your order and meanwhile you are enjoying your burguer she ask you regarding your experience. Allways had an smile. The burguer was homemade and really big. You have many options to order. I ordered a cheeseburguer with... More

I of course found this gem through trip advisor, and as soon as I saw sweet potato fries I was in! I got a simple hot dog with the fries and it was very good! A little pricey considering what I ordered but there were people bringing me condiments and filling up my drink. Very nice staff.

I love when trip advisor sends me to a place and I completely agree! Mom greeted us at the door explained all our options. We had a large party of 10. And everyone enjoyed their food. I had the Brie burger with sweet potato fries and it was fantastic. Other things my family ordered was the salmon, ribs, hotdog (huge)... More

Gilbert's 17th Street Grill has good hamburgers and sandwiches along with unusual and tasty desserts and all with reasonable prices. The friendly owner is often on the premises and appears to have worked hard to create an informal restaurant with consistently good food as well as servers who seem to enjoy their jobs. It is located in a strip mall... More

The owner greeted us and told us all about the menu options, which included many seafood dishes. Our party of six was well taken care of in this bright and cheery place. I ordered the spicy salmon and Cambodian slaw. The slaw had a peanut based dressing. It was delicious. Two of our party had the half pound burgers and... More
