“Guess it depends on the night you hit it!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We ate here both nights during our trip for a Gator football game. One night we were in a large party and half the folks did not get there food...ever. The next night we were there for the game and had a good time. The help was very attentive and always ensured our buckets were full. The bar-be-que nachos were delicious. One big draw back on game day were the size of the TV's. They really should invest in some large screen TVs. The live music was awesome, especially "Hunks of Funk".

“Decent place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Five of us came here for dinner on a week night. It's a pretty big place and since it was warm, we chose to sit outside. Service was good and the wait staff was friendly.We had the gator bites for an appitizer. Tasted like chicken! I ordered the corn beef sandwich and it was really good. Big and filling. Happy hour ended by the time we arrived so we managed with a couple pitchers of beer. Sitting outside you can see lots of dolphins swimming by.
We had a good time here and would go back again the next time we're in the area.

Gators had good food, nice atmosphere on the water. Gator bites were amazing! Fish spread is suppose to be great too but we missed out on that.

“Cheers to Gators!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Even if you didn't go to University of Florida you'll love Gators at John's Pass~ Its such a fun bar/restaurant you'll never want to leave~ Great food, fun drinks, frozen, on the rocks, beers, sodas, waters and shots~ Sit inside or outside, watch the yachts, ships, boats, dolphins, sunsets, heck you can do it all at Gators~ Live music, great wait staff, fun atmosphere! Come as you are, by boat, car, walking, riding, anyway you can, just get to Gators and have a rum runner~ Cheers~
