“Great place to eat homestyle meals”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

On January 25th, my father and I were staying at a local harbor Hotel, prior to a cruise, and found their menu prices too expensive!! We decided to check out the local restaurants, via tripadvisor and found the family run Gilbert's 17th Street Grill. A pleasant 18 min. walk and we were there. We were welcomed by the owne'rs son and were told the day's specials. He gave us 2 free samples of their homemade soups for that day...both were great!! We decided to order the Grilled Chicken club with sauteed mushrooms, onions and Cheese, I had mine with coleslaw and my father had his with French fries. We really enjoyed our meals and the price at $9.95 was reasonable too!! I highly recommend this restaurant and if I'm ever down this way again I'll know where to eat.

“If you love burgers....”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

...this is the place to eat. Perfect burgers and sweet potato fries were out of this world. Family owned and run. We were taking a flight out of Ft Lauderdale and found this gem on Trip Advisor! Definitely recommend eating here (5 minutes from airport) and skip the overpriced mediocre airport food.

“Nice lunch joint ... Not fine dining.”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Delicious lunch. A little pricey for what it is. Picture an upscale burger joint with limited ambiance. Sort of like a fast food J. Alexander's. the owner and staff very friendly, almost too friendly. The server needs to keep his fingers out of the open condiments when he brings them to the table.

“Best Hamburger Outside of Beef Country”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Super yummy burger at this locally-owned restaurant. The Gilbert family knows how to deliver wonderful hospitality and delish food! The burgers are HUGE so I asked for a 6 oz. over an 8 oz. It was still too much for this girl.

You go through a line to order but then once you sit down the bring you your food as well as refill your drink. They have Coke over Pepsi products so that was a nice plus.

I had a burger, fries, and a drink for right at $10.00. Not bad for this beach town. Would go back again!

“Good food and friendly owner”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We went in a rainy afternoon and the owner and she had her grown children working in the restaurant that day too. It wasn't too busy so she spent some time showing us her food and deserts. The food was tasty and reasonably priced (except the desert, a bit pricy) . Food portion was also good. I now are looking forward to going back with my other group of friends.
