Had gator. It was fine. Other dishes average at best. The best thing about this place is its location. Personally I'd walk past and go to the Lighthouse Point restaurant instead. Our waiter was nice and attentive, he can't help the food. Seafood chowder was tomato based and would be better as pasta sauce...not soup. House salad was romaine, raw... More

My daughter ordered the gator tail Ice cream pie. Two full grown women, my daughter and I had a bite and they only ate 2/3 of it. Stear clear of... More

We always manage to get an outside table on the water at RJ Gators. The food is consistently good and the wait staff is attentive.

New Florida residents and been here twice in two weeks even though it's a 40minute drive. Love to sit outside near the bar mid afternoon and partake in the happy hour which lasts all day on well drinks, wine and beer. They have excellent clam chowder, crispy salads and gigantic servings on their nachos. Need to come back later in... More

Their other fare is good too. I ordered shrimp & grits instead of the BLT and was not disappointed. They also... More
