Elvis lives!

We have visited this restaurant each of the last three years we have vacationed in John's Pass/St. Pete Beach area. Very good Elvis imitator on Tuesday evenings. Food and service is good. Large portions, fairly priced.

Best spot in Treasure Island to watch the Dolphins and the Fishing boats. The atmosphere and entertainment is the best. Food and beverages are a plus. They also have a nice gift shoppe.

What a horrible experience. We went outside to sit since the weather was warm and sunny. Lots of people outside, so we were expecting good service and food. It took at least a half hour to get our server to bring menus and take our drink order. After another 15 minute wait, our drinks came. We asked for 2 orders... More

Huge UF fans, but not "Gators Cafe/Saloon" fans at all. 4 of us went tonight...hardly anyone there, but we still had to wait forever for our waitress. Each had to ask for water, onion rings so greasy and not cooked in parts, hubby had to ask where his drink was, no Blue Moon?? at a huge bar? I had to... More

One of the best nights on the island was at Gators. One of their resident bands were playing exactly the kind of music I like. Everyone in our party had a great time and we danced the night away.

Gators Café has multi-level seating and sits on the Inter-Coastal across from John's Pass Boardwalk across the Bridge. Great Atmosphere, Great Food and Atmosphere with Indoor and Outdoor seating. Parking is pretty ample and Free. They have Entertainment, mostly at night and it's well worth the Trip to visit Gator's!

Slightly pricey but fun. Usual bar staples. Cajun grouper is good but underseasoned, ask them to kick it up a notch. Service is good. Enough TV's to enjoy whatever game you want to watch.

Had a Cuban sandwich. It was served with pulled pork which I was pleasantly surprised to see and eat ! Very good sandwich, homemade potatoe chips, and great view of the bay.
