Server was friendly but for a Saturday evening at 7pm in an empty restaurant she was hardly ever around and when the food comes out wrong 2 times, this is not where I would recommend dining. The food lacked flavor and the portions were small for the price.Not impressed at all. By the way, expect children to be running around... More

This is the place. Inside the resturant was A/C- Great Margaritas, Gator Tail, Frog Legs to die for and the best Escargo in a garlic butter sauce. Wear... More

Taylor and Hayley were our waitresses. They took great care of our party of 11. They were a lot of fun and the gator bites were good. The first time I ever ate alligator. They had several different flavors. Yum!!

I am a regular dinner time customer. I brought some friends here for lunch and we were disappointed that there was no lunch menu. The people I was with were excited to have catfish and the only catfish on the menu was either a dinner portion with shrimp or a sandwich. The waitress told us to order it without the... More

I went here twice in one month. It's that good! Both times we brought children (between the ages of 6 and 10). The first time we were brought by my mother. The second time we brought out of state guests. The food is delicious. Even my fussiest eater tried and enjoyed the gator bites. They are cooked to perfection (and... More

We had the mahi sandwiches and the gator po boy. The mahi is offered grilled and fried. The reviews were ok. My po boy... More

I have heard so much about this restaurant that I decided that I would give it a try. The bar is located on the water and the restaurant is located back away from the water. If you sit in the glassed area you can see the water where the boats are launched. We were disappointed that the restaurant did not... More
