Had the special Gilbert’s fish sandwich and it was square. Obviously they are serving frozen and not fresh. Been stopping here for 4 years and food quality had gone down but the drinks and sunset views are out of this world!

This is the first and last stop in the Keys! The view is very nice. Something about the water that is so relaxing! The drinks are strong, the food doesn't seem like it’s really fresh. I had the lobster bisque, which was not too bad. I also had conch fritters. The service at the bar each time I went was adequate. Not spectacular. I would recommend going here at least once. Preferably I’d recommend you go on your way heading to the Keys. It will get you in the right mood..

Pulled up a stool to the bar and got a quick hello from the server. I ordered a 1944 Mai Tai and she responded, "I'll see if we have Orgeat". Good answer and they did. No fruit juice, no orange, just a perfect Trader Vic Mai Tai with squeezed lime juice and a lime. Nice treat with a good view on the water. Thanks for getting it right.

As a traveller from the uk, the customer service in the u.s. has always been fantastic until I visited Tiki Bar at Gilbert’s. The website said live music every night. When we arrived, it looked run down. You’re not greeted, you seat yourself and then wait, and wait and wait. We ordered drinks which took forever to arrive and when they did they were in plastic glasses. The food was served by a miserable lady with no care or charm whatsoever. We had no cutlery and had to start eating with our hands. The hotdog bun was soggy and I had to get up to complain to the server who stated that if I sat outside, the food could get wet by the rain. This was not the case, the bun was placed on wet pickles. The manager came over with a replacement and offered no apology and just said, here’s a dry hot dog. The server did try to help and offered a complimentary cup of wine but it was too late by then. The food was incredibly poor and over priced. The service was slow at best. The rest rooms were disgusting. This is the most unpleasant place I’ve ever eaten at.
