Default Gilbert's in Key Largo

Is Gilbert's a good place to eat with a family? We are going to Marathon for vacation the 1st week of April and fly into Ft. Lauderdale and drive the rest of the way. It should be around lunch time when we hit the Key's and I know FPC makes that stop on the poker runs. So I was thinking maybe stop there for lunch and hope to see boats tied up or going by.

This will be my first time to the Keys and looking forward to it. Only plans we have so far is the dolphin adventure in Marathon for our kids age 4 and 6.

Is there anything else we should try and see or do?

Thanks.

Yep, it's a great place to get a meal, I was there twice in the last couple weeks. It's the driveway right before the draw bridge going off to your right. Have fun, the Keys are great.

Great place! If you aren't going by boat at least you can feel like you did by sitting along the water and having lunch.
Have a good trip!

Hey dreamer are you there only for the weekend? What's your boat look like and I'll look to see if you are there on Sunday.

Be on the lookout for big saltwater crocodiles that may pass by Gilberts!

Place is a dump, but cool atmosphere for a lunch stop.

Gilberts is and was one of the best stops while boating in the keys. They (along with many others) are being converted to Condos and such are putting as little money as possible into the existing structures to keep it running until the conversion. Thus if you really look closely it is a dump (but still an icon).

most of the condo conversions are on hold... the market is in the tank... holiday isle was supposed to be closed last year....

it aint gonna happen for a while... no lenders are gonna touch it... sub prime and a loans are killing it all the flippers are got toasted and so the inventory now is way over the demand
