Stopped in on Sunday for some lunch and drinks. Nothing fancy, but the food was good and the view of the lake was very nice. The gator appetizer and the wing basket were both delish. My bloody Mary was top-notch. Nice place to have a relaxing afternoon, but don't expect any frills.

I have been to this restaurant three times. Each time was a disappointment. Because of its proximity of Ferran Park, and view of Lake Eustis, the Crazy Gator is often crowded. Unfortunately, most of these patrons are travelers who don't know any better. The food is bland, colorless and flavorless. I made the embarrassing mistake of bringing two foreign guests... More

Decided to try Crazy Gator because it always seemed busy and was close to the lake so we decided to go and watch the sunset over dinner. The place is old and in need of decor update. Wait staff seemed disorganized. First waitress wrote our drink order in a napkin! We then got a different waiter who we later found... More

We were new to the area and went here with a friend. The food was okay nothing to fab. Burgers, soup, sandwiches. There was a weird smell in the place not sure if it was stale smoke? Not one of my favs, Sorry I will give it a second chance and report again.

What is better than a balmy night on a deck with a spectacular sunset, life music, awesome service and great food & drink. Crazy Gator has it all!

We stumbled upon this place while returning from Mt. Dora on a Sunday afternoon. There were lines of people we thought for seating but in reality they were sampling the food that makes this place so popular with the local population. Although service was slow. we realized that the influx of families and samples was having a great impact on... More

Enjoyed taco lunch special and a cold beer with an old friend. Not crowed or loud, good service and pleasant view where you can carry on a conversation.

The owners are very nice. Our gang of 20 people go here about once a month. If you go there ask for Brian. He is a very good waiter, and I think he is manager now. He makes the meal more enjoyable, he is very funny. Everybody likes the food, and the place is always loaded with people at night.
