We visited The Villages and went to RJ Gators at Lake Sumter Landing before attending a movie. The best part was sitting outside with a very nice view. The food was also good as was the service. We will probably eat here again on our next visit.

RJ Gators is a place to go when you want to have a fun and relaxing evening by the water. Food is plentiful and good and on Fridays there are two for one drink specials and often live music. Dress is casual and no one hurries you through your meal. During the high season here (winter up north), expect to... More

Definitely recommend sitting on the outside deck which has a beautiful view of the lake. with a nice breeze blowing over it. We sat at the outside bar & our bartender was very friendly & attentive. The menu offered a little bit of everything & the food was very tasty. Especially the frog's legs & alligator skewer. Would definitely suggest... More

Stopped for lunch after a round of golf and enjoyed the blackened grouper and mahi sandwiches. Side of onion straws and plantains were all very good. Only draw back was portion of grouper could have been larger for $16.00. Service by Allen and a visit by Tim made for a very enjoyable lunch. We live in The Villages and we... More

Family lunch. The location is the biggest attraction to this restaurant since it sits right next to a wonderful lake. The food would be classed as regular pub style fare with sandwiches burgers and quesadillas. No complaints from the members of the party of 14 at the table.

We sat at the outside bar which had the best view in the square as well as a nice breeze coming off of the lake. We had drinks and appetizers. Bar prices can't be beat. Appetizers were a little pricey and average. Nothing to rave about.
