Great place for lunch. You can easily get in and out within the hour (as long as you tell them you are on a lunch break). They also have a very wallet-friendly lunch menu that still satisfies the hungry. Their other entrees are excellent as well and great value for the menu price. You can eat inside amid all of... More

RJ Gators is good for a quick meal, especially if you like fried fish. The selection is good, prices are reasonable, and service is usually good.

Night out with the guys. Decent food at decent price. Buffalo chicken sandwich available with various sauces and seasonings. I had blackened dry rub, very good. I am not a blue cheese sauce fan but offered on the side and it was surprisingly tasty. Service could have been more attentive especially as not a busy night and definitely not crowded.

Yes!! It was quite a surprise to find Shepherd's on the lunch menu at R. J. Gators. Their version of this traditional Scottish dish was very unique but delicious. While not as soupy as most versions the beef was seasoned wonderfully and the diced tomatoes on top added a new touch. All Highlanders in the Villages should stop by R.J.... More

We eat there often. However, last evening when we were there a man in the booth across from us was smoking an electric cigarette and no one seemed to be able to confront him. The manager was "too busy". If this continues we will not be going there nearly as often.

Greasy fish that may have been three ounces with five ounces of greasy breading. Better fries at McDonalds. Waited forever to have my bill straightened out. Got charged for more drinks than I had. I left a tip. "Don't play on the freeway,"

After a round of golf, my wife and our neighbors went to Gator's for the first time for lunch. It was a gorgeous day so we sat outside overlooking the lake at Sumter Landing. The draft beer and food was really good and their lunch specials are very reasonable. Our server Martin was very pleasant and the food and drinks... More

Visiting from Indiana on vacation. I must say from the time we were greeted at the door until we left we had a wonderful experience. The view in the lakeside is amazing, food is well priced for the portion size, was hot when it arrived at the table, and the server was very attentive. And even better they had happy... More

Was pleasantly surprised by RJ Gators. Our server, Lawrence, was fantastic. Super nice guy, somewhat of a comedian. Food was pretty good. We had burritos, salad and a burger. Started with fried pickles for an appetizer. My drink from the bar was fantastic. Great location near the water and near the Sumter Square. Because it’s a corporate restaurant, you definitely...
