“Great Burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Saw the reviews on trip advisor so we drove through awful Ft. Lauderdale traffic to give it a try. It was great. I had a chicken club sandwich with mushrooms, onions and provolone. My wife had a burger with Brie, bacon and died onion. It's was sooooooo good. We will be going again.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

Fresh burgers and wings. Very well maintained, clean restaurant. We were welcomed by the owner who gave us a full overview of the menu. Would come back again in a heart beat and recommend to anyone.

“Burgers lovers... when in Ft Lauderdale this is your place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

We found the place last year and become regulars. We try other places very close to Gilberts, but, no way to compare. The only thing we could mention is that the place is too traditional like a cafeteria, not sport bar style, but the service and the food, particularly burgers are a 10....

“good food but odd concept”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food here is quote good. The way you order the food and then have it served makes no sense. They should just serve food in the typical fashion.

“Great Food but the owners son...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Gilberts has some great food the staff is very friendly and attentive to their customers, however, the owners son is openly rude to the staff. So much so that I find it uncomfortable to dine there. Perhaps the mail will open a 2nd location out west and let him run it.
