Enjoyed our visit. Our burgers were super juicy and delicious. Morning spent fishing on the ocean was topped off by our lunch with Ms Gilbert as our host. She told us stories and made us feel right at home. Family friendly and over the top service. Don’t miss out - eat at Gilbert’s!

We’ve not eaten here before so were unsure of the set up- it’s order at the counter, pay, take a number, find a seat, get your own drink.

We sat down, took a look around, felt a little strange, got up, wandered about. No one helped us so that was a bit uncomfortable. The guy who took the order wasn’t particularly helpful or friendly.

The burgers and sandwiches were really good. Very tasty and fresh.

I felt the oil the fries were cooked in needed changing as they tasted bitter but my husband disagrees. He thought the fries were good.

Overall cheap eats, really good burgers and sandwiches and once you know the set up easy to order.

Great parking as this is an issue in Ft Lauderdale beach area. Food .. not so good. Burger was about 1” thick and very little taste. So more like a hockey puk. Coleslaw missed the mark too. Fried chicken sandwich good. They bring mayo and ketchup to you in little cups. Definately not Heinz or hellman’s. Would we go back? No

During a business trip to Fort Lauderdale I met with a colleague for dinner who recommended Gilbert's 17th Street Grill. The food is made to order, and upon our arrival, the women behind the counter was the same person as those in the photos of the several news articles hanging around about Gilbert's (she confirmed she was the owner). She was very pleasant and helpful. I ordered a basic burger and fries. The food is served at your table when it is done. The burger was cooked to perfection and very fresh. The fries were delicious and just cooked. I was blown away by the quality and value as the prices are very reasonable for what you get. I highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner!!
I would be remised in not talking about the staff. Everyone I encountered was professional and very nice. A young man filled my fountain drink several times during the dining experience. Additionally, the bathrooms and restaurant itself is VERY CLEAN!

We (two couples) were in Fort Lauderdale earlier this month and stopped into Gilbert's for lunch. The food was delicious (especially the grilled wings and salads), the service was pleasant and professional. The on-premises owners - a husband and wife team (Bob and Lenore) were extremely friendly and seemed genuinely concerned that we enjoyed our time there. All this and moderate prices too. We would recommend Gilberts to anyone who values excellent food, excellent service, very fair prices, and owners who care about keeping their customers happy.
