“Great for a burger fix”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We had lunch with friends here mid week. You can eat inside or out but tables and chairs are limited outside. Not all tables have umbrellas for shade. If you sit outside, you get a nice view of the parking lot but it was a nice day, so what the hell. The service isn’t too fast but the burgers and sweet potato fries were delicious. The burgers are also quite big. Very nice meal but you can’t be in a hurry.

“Who Knew?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had visited the grill a few years ago and thought the food was delicious, that was before I knew anything about reviews on Tripadvisor. So preparing for our trip to Fort Lauderdale this time I read reviews and saw all the great comments about the grill. We then realized this was the same place we had visited before. We made two visits to the restaurant on this trip. I had Quiche Lorraine on my first visit and my husband had the split pea soup and a fish sandwich. On the second visit they made a special chicken sandwich for my husband and he also had their corn chowder. I had a flavorful burger and finished with Key lime pie both times. We can recommend Gilbert's 17th St. Grill. When we return to the area we will be sure to visit The Grill

“Great burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

A great place for burgers – but also the fish and the salads are great. There is a large variety of burgers and you should plan in a few minutes for deciding ;). You order at the counter and the staff will take care that you meals will arrive at your place – service is good. Definitely worth a recommendation.

“Another excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Lunch at Gilbert's today: excellent!!!

I had a cheeseburger (cooked to my request), and their great sweet potato fries.
My friend had a burger with the same fries (he thought they were great).

As always, the place was spotless, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the owners are there making you feel like family.
