Sara is a great server!

We frequent Gators a lot, and even though we're FSU fans they're always friendly to us anyway 😊. Our last visit was on the 4th of July and even though we got there late, Sara was very accommodating. She clearly had her plate full but gave us great service and a friendly attitude. Could not ask for... read more

Service is slow, we only ordered salads... Wedge salads at that with blackened grilled chicken and an appetizer calamari, a little chewy at best. It should not have taken so long.

Recently ate at this restaurant which has a wonderful setting over looking the bay at Johns Pass in between Treasure island and Madeira Beach. It was lovely watching the dolphins play in the bay whilst enjoying a lovely lunch of Cuban Sandwiches and beers. The food and service was of the highest quality.

Great Bar, Live music and we just loved sitting on the patio with a view of Johns Pass and water ways. There were numerous dolphins playing around sunset and the atmosphere is just so much fun. We tried the gator bites and some other appetizers, all were delicious. The service was great despite being very busy.

We stopped at Gators for lunch and ordered gator with fries as an appetizer. The gator was a little tough but the sauce was spicy and flavorful. I ordered the cuban sandwich which was OK. It didn't have much flavor. It came with homemade chips which tasted burnt. My husband got the club sandwich which was filling.

After reviewing Gators I was a little skeptical on coming down here but am glad that we decided to come! The food was excellent as well as the service.
