We went on a Sunday around noon. This was not our first visit but may be our last. Service is really going downhill. Place was not that busy for waitress to be so scatterbrained. Food is okay. Really nothing special.

If you are looking for a spotless restaurant with tablecloths, staff in uniforms, fancy plates, etc. this is not the place for you. But, if you are looking for a casual, fun setting on the banks of an alligator and bird watching, fishing, kayaking, boating, fishing type of old Florida atmosphere where you can have some great Florida meals, this...

We stopped in for a local atmosphere, neat décor, old Florida. The service was a little slow but the food was very good, Such a unique place to eat, would definitely eat there again.

We stopped by on a motorcycle ride, to escape the heat in South Florida in the afternoon. The music was too loud! We had to sit a two different tables for our group of 7 to be accommodated. Part of our group at one table order meals; by the time our waitress took our order quite a bit of time... More

Great food. Coconut shrimp is out of this world. Service was slow. So keeping that in mind; we will visit again with that expectation.

We were out for a drive on a Saturday afternoon and decided to check out Nav-a-Gator's since we had heard it was good. I have to admit, the setting is fun and interesting. Lots of people around or all ages, with boating, music and activities. The food however was extremely disappointing. We had the conch fritters and Big Fish Sandwich... More

Stopped in for lunch last Sunday...the onion rings and sweet potato fries are delicious! The service is great, and the bloody Marys are pretty darned good, too. Very reasonable prices.

Don't be put off by the long drive through residential areas and the dozens of bikes that are probably parked outside the grill. Get out of your car, walk through the door, go outside to a large round table and join whoever s sitting there. You will have a memorable meal (GREAT grouper sandwiches and platters) and will meet some... More

Great drop-in lunch from a private river exploration cruise. Good outdoor picnic table, speedy service, and satisfying fish and chips with beer. If any entertainment it was not within earshot.
