Gatorbites is an awesome place to relax, have a few drinks and grab bite to eat after a day on the beach. The service was amazing. Friendly staff and they made us feel like one of the locals. By the end of our vacation we met so many amazing people and it felt like home. The food was prepared and... More

For being a sports bar the wings were not very good. Went back again and the burger was ok but nothing special.

This is a great place to stop and get a quick bite or beverage. We had the gator bites and a quesadilla. The quesadilla was huge! Friendly wait staff and quick!

We stayed at the hotel next door and wanted to try something different. I got the gator nachos and they were great! Wife got a extremely healthy chicken meal that she was pleased with. Nice beer selection and friendly staff.

Spending several days helping a parent prepare to move to assisted living and simply wanted to get out of the apartment for a quick dinner. Did not want anything fancy so we decided to try a sports bar in a shopping center. Arrived about 6:30 pm and it was pretty quiet. Service was very good, drinks were good value (happy... More

In town for baseball tourney for a week. Worse meal we had. We had a party of 9 and nobody had anything good to say about their meal. Wings were very tough and chewy, nachos had canned nacho cheese and hardly no toppings, very bland and gross. The fries were the only thing decent on our table. I don't thrive... More

We went here because my son wanted to try alligator and we ordered the fried appetizer as well as the grilled gator. I have had good alligator before, this was just OK bordering on maybe not so good. The fried small pieces of gator were greasy and the grilled pieces very small, stringy and tough. The atmosphere in the place... More

Gator bite sampler and wings were amazing! My fiancé and I liked the buffalo and blackened gator flavors the most and the wings were fried perfectly. Will definitely come back!

Very convenient to Residence Inn. Somewhat nostalgic interior. Very laid back. Very cordial staff. Pretty good selection of food for a smallish place. The quality of the food and service were great. Prices were reasonable. I'd go there again and recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to have a drink pick up some food.
