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.

Dined here due to location near the hotel with no big expectations for the food quality. We were blown away! On a Saturday night, drinks arrived within a minute, food arrived 5 minutes after ordering. The calamari was the best we've ever had- it was tender, not chewy. The restaurant-made aoli was outstanding and a welcome surprise. The hand-battered shrimps... More

The beer was cold, wife liked her rum punch, the waitresses were friendly and attentive, food was good. Sports Bar type of atmosphere. The chicken nachos appetizer was great. We like casual dining like this when we are traveling.

This place was right next to the hotel we were staying at so we decided to walk over for dinner since we had a long day ahead of us the next day. We shared some gator bites as an appetizer which were very good & not too chewy. I ordered the wings for dinner & my husabnd had a burger.... More

This place was pretty nice, kind of a sports bar with a focus on Florida foods. Had some gator bites and chicken wings which were both pretty tasty. A little oily from the fryer but that's to be expected a little. Service was good, very friendly and helpful.

Gator Bites was an easy stop for lunch. We got a chance to try gator and all the other food we ordered was great. It was fast and the staff were all so friendly. Not to mention their awesome all day Tuesday special is $0.50 wings! We'll definitely be coming back here when we return to Ft Myers.

We ate several meals at Gatorbites while visiting Ft. Myers! The mahi reuben was so delicious and my husband loved the gatorbites. It was a fun place to watch the basketball games and enjoy some food and beer. Our two 15-year-olds liked it too! Don't forget to try the key lime pie!
