“Gatorific!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

This is my second time having Gator, and my mates first experience. I am so glad we found this place around the corner from our hotel, and the Gator was fantastic!!!! The service was awesome, and even though it was a Saturday night and it is a sports bar, it was really quiet and tamed! When I come back to the Fort Myers area, I will make it a "must do" !!!!!

“Next door to our hotel !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We were staying at the Residence Inn Marriott, and we were going out for a late evening meal. We asked at the desk and they suggested Gatorbites next door. Being that we could walk over, we decided to try it out. We found a nice "bar & grill". Kind of a sports bar and it seemed to have a "local" crowd, which always seems good. We were greeted at the door and shown to a booth. A very nice waitress immediately came to welcome us, take our drink order and offer some suggestions. As many tmie as we visited Florida, we had never tried "Gator". We found many options of "Gator" such as Gator Bites, Gator Tail Basket, Gtor Quesadilla's and a Gator Sampler Patter. My wife ordered a Salad, and I ordered a Shrimp Nacho Plate. Then we order some Gator Bites to share. They were excellent !!!! We enjoyed the experience of having Gator as well as our other meals. NIce place, good service and a comfortable atmosphere.

“Great gator & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We've tried to order gator bites as an appetizer multiple places around the area, but everyone is always out! Enter Gatorbites - super convenient location and great service. They have a lot of other things on the menu, seafood & otherwise, but most importantly lots of gator! We had the buffalo-style gator bites (amazing) and the gator nachos (okay). We'll definitely be back to try more and our waitress was really kind, the food came out fast, and it was all worth it!

“Good grub n atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Gatorbites is worth checking out. Good food at good prices. Had the Gator Philly which was yummy. Wish they put more Gator in it though. Also had the Buffalo chicken sandwich which was yummy, but they skimped on the chicken too. It had 2 tiny chicken tenders versus a breast. We also had delicious zesty fries and big side salad. Dont forget to check out the big selection of shirts and accessories which us GatorDogs had to get sum!
