Good, casual meal

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.

Myself and my husband join several of our friends every week at Gators.... they're early dining menu offers a wide variety of supper sized meals at very inexpensive prices.... we also have a "Gators" card that earns points with each meal to be spent whenever which we have used when family or friends come to visit.

Ordered a bucket of shrimp and had a hard time eating it all. The shrimp was very good as well as the coleslaw. The fries were not very hot. Had a bit of a wait and felt bad for our waitress. Place is noisy.

I have been here many times, and have been pleased. They have a great Happy Hour, and the bartender was great. I decided to try something different, and ordered the Baja salad off the special lunch menu. HUGE mistake!! All i can say is unless you plan on staying close to a restroom for 24 hrs, DO NOT order this... More

We went there on a cold night and there were not many people in the restruant. We wanted to have dinner and play Trivia. There were no seats at the bar so we sat at a table. We asked for controllers to play the game and were refused because we were not sitting at the bar. I asked to see... More
