Very good burgers, served piping hot and accompanied by excellent fries. I was also quite impressed with their wings. Spent some time speaking with the owner and was impressed with her pride in her excellent business and commitment to providing a good product.

We shared one burger(bbq bourbon with onion rings) and mixed fries. It was huge! And very tasty. They cook it just as you like it. The staff was amazing. Its a great place to go. I would certainly return. The price is fair. You can definitely share a meal.

My wife and I stumbled across Gilbert's during a stay for only one night after a cruise. They heavily tout their Trip Advisor ratings which made our decision to try them out easy. You stand in line to order. Mrs. Gilbert was greeting guests as she worked behind the counter. She said several of the other workers were family. My... More

We just went there for lunch & there was Mrs Gilbert busy filling the cooler. The restaurant was reasonably busy. I had a Greek salad. The vegetables were fresh and plentiful. The dressing, served on the side, was very good. My friend had a Tuna salad sandwich which he also said was very good. The staff were very friendly and... More

My daughter and I were in the area the other day and decided to check Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat! After reading the reviews we decided to give this place a shot. We had burgers and hot wings that were amazing. Hard to find a place that can cook a burger perfectly and the definitely know what they are... More

Really a nice place to be (delicious, friendly, great variety, nice service). Especially the advice from Mrs. Gilbert about the burger choice was always perfect. Try the brie or the domenican burger! :) Greetings from Germany!

I can definitely appreciate a place that is simple, to the point and lets their food speak for itself. Gilbert's embodies all of those things. Walking in we were greeted by the owner, who explained to us the quality of food and ingredients that they use, as well as the favorites. She actually went through the whole menu, which was... More

We visited here for the second time, clean, quick and great tasting food, nothing bad to eat here. This time I had the portobello mushroom sandwich, oh my, such great flavor, the only suggestion I have is to peel the eggplant as I had a hard time biting into it, finally took it off. I also ordered the special kale... More
