Called our 5 meal order in and was told 20 minutes. In truth, it was closer to 45 and my husband had to wait at least 30 minutes while they finished preparing the order. Not a huge deal, just slightly annoying. Food was great though....My husband ordered the ribs and I ordered the Mahi Mahi almondine. Every person in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal.More

Only stopped in for drinks and to enjoy the live music but service was attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was nice and food looked great, would definitely return and try the food next time.

Very friendly local restaurant, great food and service and always good drinks. You have to try the Bananas Foster for desert!

We stopped there on a Wednesday afternoon around 4:30 pm. It was clean and did not appear to be very busy. We were seated within reason, but the server did not appear for several minutes. We placed orders and the food service was prompt. The...menu is large and we selected main line items Fish and Chips and Sirloin Tips, we also had grilled avacado with chips. The fish was undercooked Talapia no external crispness. The sirloin tips were stringy and also undercooked. The avacado was nice with a salsa and Fritos Corn Chips. We were disappointed and do not plan on visiting again.More

Great service, but food lackluster. She Crab soup not even close. Salads all tasted like Ceasar. Burger gets a C. Oh well.

My family stopped in here to eat dinner after a UF football game. Waiting time was as expected due to the large crowd. Host and bar tender was very friendly while we waited. We requested outside seating as we had our dog with us. Food...was great and fresh. Everything was fine except the dessert. The cheesecake was frozen and the apple pie was just ok. Definitely would come here again.More

We enjoyed this cute spot and the food was good. Seafood gumbo was delicious! We also got grouper sandwich and a salad. Loved the Gator decorations!

We had a group of seven looking for something to eat after an afternoon college football game. We were all hot, tired and hungry and this was on our way. Based on the reviews we decided to give it a try. We may have been...the only visiting team fans in the whole place but were treated like home folks. This is obviously a popular spot with the home team crowd as they packed the place. The food and service were excellent and they had a cool atmosphere as well. Our group had a variety of food and everyone enjoyed the meal. I went with a Bull Gator Burger and fries, but others had sushi, seafood dishes, etc. I think the prices, food, service, location and atmosphere are just right for a post game stop.More

Our group had large corner. The service and vibe here is very good. Drinks right out. Started with she crab soup then had almond coated mahi mahi and sweet potato fries, great food. Folks in our group all around enjoyed several items from the menu...and remarked how great their choices were.More

We always eat at ballyhoos when we come to gville and it’s just as good as always. The fish tacos were wonderful, the sushi rolls were really good and the drinks were on happy hour prices. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend were the New...Orleans bbq shrimp which weren’t that good. The service was good and the boys loved the deserts. There isn’t much better than sitting outside with a drink in your hand and listening to live music in Gville.More

I suppose so but better talk to them ASAP as it's a busy place and you have a party of about 20.
