Decent food on the way to the beach

Gatorbites offers a basic bar menu with some Florida favorites as well. Service was good even with a large party and three kids. Food was decent and not overpriced. Overall, a good place to stop on the way to or from Sanibel or Captiva Islands.

We had the Seafood platters and they were a bounty. We also had the wings, super. The menu provides a great choice for any group. The service..Jody, was friendly and attentive. Unlike some bar/restaurants. This is a must if in the Summerlin, Sanibel area. I'd drive miles to eat there.

We were looking for something green but not the gator. I settled for the Philly Beef w/generous peppers, onions, mushrooms. It came w/fries & slaw but requested slaw x2 to avoid the fries. Slaw was not good - bitter.

Worth a stop, if only to try alligator. Attentive, friendly staff. You can order up gator in any number of ways. Enjoyed the burger and the tacos. Spiced up, gator isn't especially memorable though. Reasonable prices. A good place to have a beer and watch the game.

On our second visit, We had caught some redfish and sea trout and Gator Bites cooked it to our specifications. It was delicious. Not a big fan of Gator, but other menu items are good. The beer is ice cold and the waitresses are friendly. TV's are everywhere, so you can watch about any sport you want. Will be going... More

Pretty good food, friendly staff, reasonable prices. It's not a destination restaurant but it's a good choice if you're in the neighborhood.

Had a good burger, and wife had a great fish sandwich (Asian catfish). Reasonably priced. Wasn't too busy/hectic shortly after the lunch hour.

Came in on our last night in town to catch a basketball game. Sat at the bar and the service was great! Tried the gator bites and they were very good. Also ordered a burger and some wings and all of the food was hot fresh and delicious. Had some country music playing before it gave way to live music... More

The food was ok, nothing special. Since I had no desire for anything gator, I found the menu to be average. I did not enjoy sitting outside because of the smokers.

If you enjoy cold beer, good food, all sports games on the many tv's, and nice friendly staff then you need to come here. If your not into that, go to the library...this place is one of my favorites! Try it out, you will like it.
