Great Coconut Shrimp Dinners!

Great Coconut Shrimp Dinners! We enjoyed the meals and the service was pretty good that day we visited. We will be back... we enjoy the visit when it's early and quieter. ;)

This was probably the absolute worst seafood that I've ever had short of fish sticks from the frozen food department of the grocery store. I ordered the Gulf Coast Bucket, which consists of fried white fish, shrimp, clam strips and french fries. First if all, it was all served lukewarm on a slightly warmer plate. The seafood was all chewy... More

As soon as we arrive at Sumter Landing, we head to R J Gators! Food is great, but we especially love the 2 for 1 Happy Hour Margaritas. Those are the best in The Villages. Many years back when our friends introduced us to RJ Gators, they "treated" to the Gator Tail for dessert. Since that time, everytime we bring... More

RJ's is a fun place - we love their salad selections. Also fun to sit at the bar and enjoy the all-day happy hour prices. There's also an outside seating area right on the lake. Beautiful

This restaurant is located in THE VILLAGES, right on the 'Lady Lake' or also known as at the Sumter Landing, close to the #2 square, Food is good and portions are large. It is more a 'pub type' restaurant and hence, sometimes a bit noisy! If you come during 'happy hour' you get two drinks for the price of one!!

Great food and service for a large party of 8 on a Friday during lent. Our waiter did a wonderful job and was very helpful. Food was out quick and delicious. Get there early if you don't want a long wait. No reservations or call ahead seating.

They have a good menu with many American favorites! Their wings and burgers are very good! Salads and dinner entrees are pretty good too! I like their chicken tenders, but get the regular size order, unless you are sharing them for 3! Clean and friendly with a great view!

Good fish dinner with two for one drinks (although pretty weak ones). Indoor and outdoor seating. Friendly server who could answer questions about the menu. Did not like the big cart of dirty buckets they push around to clear the tables...not very appetizing.

Hadn't been there for quite awhile. Was pleasantly surprised. New menu for lunch which had quick inexpensive things. The whole experience was wonderful. I will definitely go there again for lunch when we are in the area.
