We had lunch at Gators and sat outside by the water. Our waiter, Andrew, was a nice guy and helpful with menu and drink selections. Food was tasty and very reasonably priced. We waited a little while for drink refills, but not a big deal. Other than that, service was very good. If in the area again, we will go... More

Gators is a HUGE restaurant/bar right on the water. Their menu said they are the largest waterfront restaurant/bar in the world and I can believe it. We both ordered the grouper dinner and it was delicious. It came with cilantro lime rice and it was so incredibly good. We ordered our grouper blackened and the seasoning was delicious. We sat...

After running around all day, we headed to Gators for a late snack. Well we were able to sit outside, even though it was late...and we ordered the nachos. HUGE, which the server warned us about. I even tried a new beer... which she described well. they do offer a variety of microbrews as well as "regular" beers. The nachos... More

Tourist think its cute to feed the sea gulls left over French fries by hand. It's fun to watch but... More

We just got done eating here. Got a veggie burger with mystery sauce that our waitress could not identify. Also gator bites were chewy. All the food was extremely greasy. They did take the veggie burger off the bill. The view is awesome though. So just go for the drinks and view.

The worst food I had since I came to America 20 years ago.We ordered the gator bites and onion rings. and it was really hard to tell which one was worst.The gator bites were tough like rubber from an old car tire and tasteless. The onion rings were just rings... More

Food was okay (especially the calamari) but service and entertainment were not worth the trip. Planned to have dinner but changed our minds after a bit.
