Good food and excellent waitress

We visited Gator's for the first time while visiting family in Burlington on a Sunday for lunch. We ordered the petite filet and grilled salmon with Croc's kiss which were both very good. We also ordered the spinach dip for an appetizer and it was quite different than any other hot spinach dip we... read more

We got very poor service and the waiter charged us extra for changing the regular salad to ceasar although he didn't inform us that it will be extra? One of our steaks came undercooked. Not going again.

I recently ate at gators with my wife and her whole family for my brother in laws wedding rehearsal dinner. We were impressed that they got all the food out at the same time but realized that some of it had to have sat for a few minutes to make it happen. My steak was over cooked and my wife's... More

The best restaurant along the highway (US 61) in Burlington. I eat there time and time again during my six months stay. The staff learned who I was, what and how I liked my food and acted accordingly. Nice cold beer.......always a smile!

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.

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.

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.
