Gilberts is consistently good food. I usually get the burgers because they are fresh and good consistency. The desserts are homemade and excellent. You can sit outside or inside.

Wife and I had grilled grouper sandwich and grilled chicken sandwich. Both were nicely done and very tasty. The cole slaw we had for a side was excellent. Service was attentive and friendly. Only down side was the price which was high for sandwiches.

We wanted a place near the airport where 7 of us (three generations) could all find something to eat. Gilbert’s was great. Burgers, salads, fish were all excellent. Very attentive service, even for 2 young fussy eaters. Good value. Lots of free parking.

Order at the counter and then there are food runners and bussers who will help you with what you need when you are seated...bring you drinks, silverware, condiments, etc.

I'm sure Ms. Gilbert will be more than helpful in satisfying your dietary needs. She was very reassuring when we inquired about nut allergies. And, I still say they have the BEST burgers. Hope this helps!
