Server was cool and location was on the water. After that, see my title. Not much more to say. Avoid this place as there are way too many good places to visit on Gulf Blvd.

Good is ok but nothing to write home about. Nice to come by boat but the staff is rude and absolute not personality at all. Much more fun at Ricky T's. Better food at T's too.

Love to come here and sit by the window overlooking John's Pass. So much boat activity and dolphins. They have huge, wondeful hamburgers and delicious blackened grouper sandwiches. The french fries are some of the best.

The famous grouper sandwich was cold, bun was so hard couldnt even bite into it. It was smaller than a hamburger you get at McDonald's..Ordered a bud beer, 8.50 a bottle. Save yourself a 130.00. for three people,Go across the bridge and eat somewhere else. Service sucks too. Won't go back there again. .

Here's a tip. Keep your waitstaff from having multiple tables in multiple rooms on multiple floors so we don't have to send a search party for a refill. Overpriced, and horrible service. Decent food and view though--if you can handle waiting 20 minutes for your beer and then other 20 for them to ring you out.

I've been here several times. They've remodeled since the last time I was here. It's much improved. If you're a UF fan? Then this is the place for you. If not, oh well. For me, a vegetarian, not that great of a place. I have the Caesar Salad. Nothing to write home about, just average at best. The location is... More

Gators is a pretty typical bar with pretty typical bar food but it has A LOT of outdoor deck seating. Across the bay from the annoying hustle of John's Pass, it gives you a respite from the crowds and noise. The water side tables are a plus as you can enjoy the weather, dolphin watch and be entertained by the... More

My group of friends and I aren't ones to complain about places too often, but this place was terrible! I went here for dinner with a group of friends on a Tuesday night. (The place was not busy at all) Our waitress approached us and had no idea what any drink specials were, so she went and took about 15... More

Came here to enjoy the intercoastal views and grab some drinks and appetizers. I had to ask for 3 different drinks before they could actually make one that I settled for. The appetizers were large portions but greasy and bland. We were so turned off that we finished our drinks and headed elsewhere for dinner. We sat inside but when... More

My group went there on our last night of vacation. After all the great food we had to this point, we were highly disappointed to say the least. Our waiter greeted us to "we don't have ribs, we don't have rib-eye steak, there is no fresh catch of the day, and we are out of a few other things too."... More
