We visited for early dinner and were greeted by owner who really sold us on the burger. Burgers come with bun, usual salad, pickle and side of fries or slaw.

The beer was iced down and cold! Unfortunately the burgers and fries filled us up so there was no room left for the amazingly unique dessert offerings. We... More

Needed a quick meal on the way to Ft. Lauderdale airport. Found Gilbert's on Tripadvisor and gave it a try. No real ambiance BUT good fast type food at a reasonable price. The service was excellent. After the food is brought to your table the servers continuously walked by asking if we needed anything whether it be more water, or... More

Meet with a group of cruisers prior to cruise. We were given an area to socialize and this worked out very well. Food and service was excellent. This is a family owned business and it shows.
