Sit on the deck - listen to the in-house music - have some dynamite chicken wings or many other wonderful choices ... enjoy a great happy hour ...

Went to Gators with family who live in the area while I was on vacation. There was an hour wait, however, it was worth it. We ordered several favors of wings and watched the Rio Olymipcs on the big screens. The service was friendly and fast.

Outside seating if you prefer and is on the lake. This is not a fine dining restaurant but the food is good and they serve large portions of everything. Staff if attentive.

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
