It's not fine dining. It's not fast food. I'm not even sure it's on the map. We go to the Nav-A-Gator by boat for the experience. It's generally a good time if you put yourself in a Jimmy Buffet state of mind. Relax, have a drink and enjoy.

Slow, rude service. Food is way overpriced. You can get the same quality or better at many nearby establishments for a better price and less attitude from the servers. The place itself is a neat place.

Don't make a habit of catching your favorite band here. They've been known to cancel on bands at the last minute. Matter of fact that just happened yesterday. And to think I came all the way from Tennessee for this...shame on you. Nav-a-gator. - Granny

The only reason I was going to this establishment was because I was going to see a band I fell in love with when they played in my hometown...then I found out that they did not pay them. Shame on you!

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.
