“"Waitress-like service in a fast-food place"”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

The service at Gilbert's was great and the portions were large. I thought we were heading to a sit-down place and was a little disappointed at first when I saw the set-up, but quickly realized I had nothing to be upset about! The staff there brought our food right to the table and even got us refills from the fountain drink machine. I ordered a chicken sandwich with cheese, onions and mushrooms and my boyfriend had a burger. I really enjoyed my meal and my boyfriend said it was one of the best burgers he's ever had. Enthusiastically recommend for a casual dining experience in Fort Lauderdale.

“great leadership and atmosphere... food very good”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

The most memorable part of the experience was the warm greeting from the owner. When we walked in and had confused looks on our faces on where to order, etc, the owner greeted us, explained how everything worked, and went back to business. Food was good, portions were large. Service was great.

“Great Burger, Great Staff”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

The burgers were fantastic, I ordered a bacon , cheddar, amazing, fries were great too. Others in our group had salads and soups. You order your food up front and get a number, the wait was under five minutes , they food came exactly as it was ordered, mine rare, others well, all came out together. Beer was cold and the staff was terrific, our party was 12. The owner was there and she came over to check on us and made sure that everything was good.

“Very expensive and not worth it”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

If you are going to charge over $25.00 for two burgers it better be outstanding. The burgers were just OK and I should have paid $10.00. The fries were average at best. I don't understand how people rate this place so high. Their are plenty of places just in Fort Lauderdale that have better burgers.
