This is mostly a bar and not appropriate for children. We also stayed at the Marriott next door so we tried this place--the menu was impressive and the establishment looked nice. Our appetizers were quite simply the worst appetizers I've ever had. I understand it was "bar food" but plenty of dives make good food. I've had amazing snacks and... More

Walking distance from the hotel. Later hours which came in handy as we ate here after returning on the Key West Ferry. Good menu. Reasonable prices. As the name suggests, a variety of Gator selections. Food was fine Nachos were a bit "off" as they were just a step up from that one gets at the ballpark. Wings were breaded... More

We have gone here on a few occaisions when we have had company visiting. If you want to try eating allgator meat, this is the place to eat. They serve samples... More

Was a nice clean homey feel. Happy hour was wonderful, and the food was great. Everything is affordable and there's a fare value for the buck. I'd go back to the area just to hand out at this location. Thanks to everyone who works there this was the highlight of our trip.

We went here on 2 nights when staying at a nearby hotel. The first night the service was very good and we had a few cocktails as recommended by the waitress. The second night different waitress and I don't think she really wanted to be there. We tried a few of the Gator specialities - have to say they were... More

It's a quaint sports bar with great food, great drinks, wonderful staff. Nothing fancy just a fun place to grab a bite, drink and maybe watch a game. They also have outside seating. This could become our favorite casual spot!
