This place had so many meals to choose from. We arrived after the Bees baseball games, 11:15 pm. We were welcomed with a smile and fast and happy staff. My husband had the tenderloin and loved it, it was huge! I had Prime Rib Melt, with extra horseradish, so good. My son had a plate full, full of mashed potatoes... More

The chicken sandwiches are some of the best items on the menu. There is something for everyone and I like that you can get smaller sized hamburgers as well as large burgers. The service is fast and wait staff are very good and friendly. (There is a "gator" in Gator's, although it is actually a caiman.)

The food was delicious and affordable. Had a very friendly, professional waitress who made us feel like we were her only patrons and was completely helpful and knowledgeable. Great place to eat...get there early though...when we left there was a line waiting to get in!

This is one of my favorite places to eat. The service is always excellent. We've always had friendly servers. The food is excellent and a wide variety to choose from. The portions are large, I often take home half for a meal the next day. The prices are about right for the portion size. Plenty of room for diners and... More

I got the chicken marsala, the chicken was slimy, i would not recommend ordering anything with grilled chicken.. It looked like checken but the texture was slimy and not like a typical chicken breast..i don't know if it was pre-cooked chicken but that's what it seemed like, i could not even finish my meal.

There was a group of 5 grown men that went here on a Monday evening around 6:30 pm. The place had plenty of business, even for a Monday Evening. The Hostess received us VERY quick and attentive. The Waiter was very good and kept checking on us. I had the Pork Tenderloin with fries--- YUMMY, for $7.99, it was huge... More

I always get the ribs. They are so good that I cannot help myself. Best ribs in the area, and one of the best places to eat in the area. Don't mind the wait to get seated, the food is absolutely worth it. I see a expansion of the diner in the future....

Good place to go to know you'll get tasty food with choices to suit your group. I really enjoyed the crispy, hot and obviously hand-breaded tenderloin sandwich. If you're not from the Heartland, this is a key item to get acquainted with. It's a deep-fried pork cutlet and you should get it with pickle onion and mustard. At Gator's, it's... More

We have never had a bad meal at Gator's. The menu is extensive. There is something for everyone. Very nice Senior's menu for smaller appetites is also available. Wait staff is always very friendly. Great place for lunch or dinner.

One of my favorite restaurants in the area. Good food and good service. Have to admit I usually stick with a sandwich or a wrap, but I enjoy both. I have to give a shout our to our favorite waitress, Neesha. She always has a smile and is absolutely hilarious!
