Decent sports bar with pretty good foof

The place is a sports bar. Not bad, I'd equate it to most chain sports bars as far as food. Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly.

Food was average at best. The waiter was not excited about the food or his work. He even said the mashed potatoes were not good. The onion straws appetizer was good. No one said goodbye or thank you when we left.

Pretty penny will be spent but you will enjoy a very nice dining experience. Wait staff are on it and polite.

I ate at Gator's several times during my three-week stat in December 2014. The food is OK, but not great, though it is good value. The sandwiches and burgers were underwhelming. However, I did have excellent ribs there. The ambiance is that of a sports bar on one side, and a sit down restaurant on the other. All in all,... More

My family brought us here stating it was a good, local eatery. The wait was long. The menu was quite extensive, but I was disappointed in my lackluster burger and freezer burned fries. My mom did like the tenderloin sandwich, but that was about it.

The ribeye steak sandwich is the best I've ever had. Melts in your mouth. You can't go wrong with this choice.

The food was wonderful. I had the best grilled pork loin, cauliflower-cheese soup, and cole slaw that I have ever eaten. The artwork and furnishings made for a very attractive environment. The service was good. The prices were decent. It was even fun! Take a look at the "wild" animal in the aquarium in the lobby. Could it be real?

We went today. Ordered pasta and husband ordered Ruben sandwich. We waited 90 minutes for our food. We told waitress after about 70 minutes to cancel our check and we wanted to go somewhere else, she came back 20 minutes with our food. No checking on us, no refills. She gave us our check, we layed down $40 and she... More

I have lived in Burlington all my life and I probably eat here once every other week. My boyfriend decided to take me out for my birthday on 10/10/14 and I had a lovely experience here like I normally do. We made a reservation, since we know they are normally busy on Fridays. We got our seats fairly quick and... More

It wasn't bad, it wasn't great, it was ok but nothing special. The place was clean and had a big menu selection that was definitely over crowded on a Saturday night. They seemed to try to squeeze in every table they could and I had a hard time sliding my chair out without something into the person behind me. Our... More
