First Review by Scott Grenerth

Love This Place! - Edit

We always get great meals here. The portabella steak sandwich was really good, the Buddha Bowl is excellent and the Chicken Salad is terrific. I'm not crazy about the desserts and the ice cream that they just added to their menu was not creamy. The French fries were also nothing special.

AMAZING - Edit

Everyone is complaining about the price... but this is FORT LAUDERDALE. Everything is expensive. Haha. Went here multiple times while in Fort Lauderdale and I everything I had was delicious. Great staff, patio was lovely. Nothing to complain about.

Pros: patio, food, service

cute and tasty - Edit

Will definitely add this to my artesanal of vegan places to eat at! I went with my mom (a non vegan) and we both enjoyed our meal. My mom had to resend her BLT back because it was rather burnt but they fixed and even included another side salad. Can't wait to back again to try the fish-less tacos next!

Update: Upon going here again I'm changing my review from 4 to 3 stars. My mom and I both agree that the price doesn't seem to be worth the portion size or some of the food itself (ex: $4.50 for a side of plain fries). They also changed their menu greatly. :/ Not bad but not spectacular or one of the best I've been to either. We plan on giving it one more try though, eventually.

Kombucha on tap and coconut burger is good - Edit

Great outdoor seating, Kombucha on tap ($7+) for a glass. Recommend coconut burger, if you can deal with the fried patty. GF options listed, Friendly staff. Great place to take meat eaters, and better staff/atmosphere than Fresh First which is close by, didn't try the hummus. We make that at home eh!

Pros: Kombucha on tap, fast service, happy staff

Cons: expensive on 17th

??? - Edit

This is the first all-vegan restaurant I've ever been to, and I'm sooo happy I went! I had a roasted bowl (roasted vegs with rice and quinoa), bf had the seattle burger, mom had a coconut burger and dad had the loaded fries. All of it was delicious!!!!! I would recommend this place to anyone. Much love from Maryland!! ❤

Pros: lots of vegan options, VEGAN DESSERTS

Cons: pricey

Relaxing and delicious - Edit

Stopped by here to grab a bite and kill some time after our plane ride to Fort Lauderdale. Was pleasantly surprised at how scrumptious the food was and loved the outdoor patio to sit, eat and relax. We got the BLT, veggie burger and AB&J sandiwich. Can't wait to go back and try the tacos!

Pros: Great outdoor seating

1 out of 3 was good - Edit

Heard about this for awhile so I was excited to try it. My roasted veggie wrap was delicious but the hummus plate wasn't good and terribly overpriced for the 3 carrot sticks and 3 celery sticks. The pieces of seed crackers just fell apart and the hummus itself was bland. My fiancé's smokehouse burger was terrible. The "burger was the texture of wet bread and just wasn't good. I'm sad because I keep trying to find a place we both like but he has yet to go to a vegan restaurant where he liked the food.

Pros: roasted veggie wrap

Cons: burger , hummus plate

I read your review and wanted to ask you... have you tried Fresh First? They are not 100% vegan but have a lot of vegan options and are also on SE 17th Street....

great brunch - Edit

Green Bar opened up an hour early for our Vegan Vacation at Sea group so we could eat brunch before boarding our cruise ship. The décor and atmosphere are nice as are the staff. Three of us shared all our dishes. We got the pancakes, biscuits & gravy and tofu rancheros. All were excellent! We enjoyed coffee and juice too. Definitely a great place for brunch.

Pros: nice staff, great brunch

I wish this place was in Michigan! - Edit

We went here for lunch and the burgers here are AMAZING! The best burgers we've ever had, hands down. I had the Seattle Burger and hubby had the Rustic. He said, "Baby we gotta figure out how to make these!" He's incredibly picky about burgers and that's the best compliment he gives! A little pricey but SO worth it. We're going back for dinner!

Galt Ocean Location - Edit

Feedback, if you want it. Ate at the Galt Ocean location 9/3. Coconut burger was delicious, sauce good, white bun tasted like Wonder Bread, poor. Also side of coleslaw with burger way way too small. Living Lasagna, good idea but poor execution, sauce way too thick, vegan "cheese" too thick and not very tasty, hardly any of the too thin zuchinni, and not layered like it should be. Grilled artie choke, from a can, hardly enough to get a taste, angel hair fried sweet potato strings greasy and insubtantial. Key lime pie filling way to dense and not very limey or sweet, date-nut crust good but not thick enough. Use a lot of plastic, why not washable table wear?

Updated from previous review on 2016-09-04

Pros: Tasty coconut burger, Nice staff, Good pie crust

Cons: Poor bun, Poor Lasagna, Thick not good tasting pie filling

The "Cheese" Cake is Better than Sex - Edit

I eat at GBK at least once a week and I feel so fortunate to go to work walking distance from this restaurant. (My other herbivore pals out there know how hard it is to find vegan friendly places in south Florida.) I love that I can bring my non-vegan friends or coworkers here and they will also enjoy the food. The atmosphere is great, and my favorite item on the menu is the coconut burger. Although I have also had a "cheese" cake that was better than sex.

Updated from previous review on 2016-08-25

Pros: Variety! Desserts, burgers, bowls, salads, shakes., Hip atmospher and nice outside seating., Quality food.

Cons: Price can be a little high.

mixed review - Edit

This place has changed a lot since I first started coming here. It started out as very healthy and light. The food tasted fresh and with quality ingredients. Since then, the menu has changed several times. No problem there. However, this last time I went, the quality of the food had gone way down. Over priced, deep-fried, frozen food. I was disappointed. I used to really like going to eat here. I'm not sure I'll be back.

Pros: lots of options, nice atmosphere

Cons: expensive for what it is, greasy

Wow, Wow, WOW! - Edit

Homebrewed kombucha? That alone is reason to come. But meal after meal everything comes out clean and tasty. So glad to have found this absolutely perfect vegan spot when in town at a convention. Sweet staff, too. Outside dining area very zen. Overall, 10 stars!

Pros: homemade kombucha, outdoor seating ambience, friendly staff

Cons: closes too early (9 pm)

COCONUT BURGER IS ADDICTING - Edit

They had an amazing coconut burger that my mom and I went twice in the same week for. It was crusted perfectly and tasted how Florida feels; light and tropical. Their baked goods were awesome (especially the whoopie pies) and they had free flavored water that was hydrating and delicious. The atmosphere was very nice and I could have stayed there for hours if I didn't have to check into my hotel. This is a MUST DO!

Pros: Everything!, •They also have cute shirts that you can buy

Good food - service inconsistent - Edit

I've been to GBK and will be back because the food is good. But one thing I notice is a lack of consistency from one visit to the next.

This time, I met with 2 other friends. All 3 of us placed orders separately, but at the same time. Two orders came out. Our 3rd friend waited and waited, asked a server about her order (who never got back to her). She finally went in and asked and it had never been put through! At that point they asked her if she wanted to cancel her order, but she was hungry - she came to eat lunch. They should have offered her food for free, or at least a free dessert or coupon for a future visit. That is not the way to do business. My friend had to sit and watch us eat, and then finally just took the food to go. It was their error and they should have attempted to compensate her.

I still think the food is good, but they are going to lose customers with that kind of service (or lack thereof).

Cute place, food food! - Edit

I had the rustic burger witch is a sweet potato burger, the texture wasn't great but the taste was! My husband had the Buffalo tempeh and he loved it. The juices are very good. It's a nice place, the staff is friendly and the terrace is cute!

Excellent - Edit

We ate here twice (dinner & brunch) before leaving for our cruise & would happily eat there again next time we're in the area. (By the way, it is about 1.5 miles from Port Everglades - convenient for cruise departures, but does not open until 11am on Sun, so not as convenient for cruise disembarkation).

For dinner, I got a veggie bowl & chilli cheese dog. I thought both were good, but not amazing. But I adored the apple pie & apple crisp that we shared for dessert & the healthy juices for later. The Punk'n French Toast I got for brunch the next day was more unique & also tasty. see photos.

The decor is fresh & nice inside & the also have shaded outdoor seating which looked inviting (though we didn't partake). The staff was friendly too.

Overall, I'd give it 4.5 stars as 2 of my 3 dishes were nothing special (4 stars), but everything else was 5 stars.

Pros: Great selection (all vegan), Fresh, welcoming decor
