Great atmosphere, good band, good food. Excellent drinks. Had a good time here. Staff was friendly. Nachos were great. The punch bucket was an awesome drink. I highly recommend it.

You can sit outside by the water and watch the boats go by. We saw dolphin, pelicans, sea gulls, the return of a fishing boat and their catch...all while enjoying a cold brew and some excellent food!

We have been there 2 times and we got very slow service both times. The only reason we go there is because it is right next to our boat club. The second time we went, it took our server 20 minutes to stop by and say hi after we repeatedly asked the hostess and food runner to go get our... More

We had lunch at Gators Cafe and Saloon. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Loved the Grouper and Gater bites. Fantastic views of the bay and John's Pass. Loved watching the dolphins playing off the deck.

Do not recommend this place to anyone. Unless you like to lousy food and high prices. The new management is rude to locals and visiting customers, as well as staff. Raised prices on many beverages. As an example some drafts have gone from 3 to 5 dollars. That's a percentage of 66.5%! Not only this unacceptable, buckets of bottled beer... More

John's Pass has the Gators on the Pass over the bridge from the main "village". Worth a detour. The live music last Friday (3rd Feb) was very good. he thoughtfully turned down the volume having asked nearby folks if it was too loud. We tried the gator Bites & weren't disappointed. Had them elsewhere in Florida & Texas, but these... More

Good views of the Gulf and the Pass. Service was attentive and prices reasonable. Will be anxious to see again once construction improvements are completed.

I wanted try some gator bites while I was in Florida and this was suggested for those. I had one person tell me they really liked this place and one tell me that it wasn't that great. I can say it is a great place for gator bites and a great view of John's Pass, but other than that we... More

Stopped for a light lunch, had gator bites, steamed shrimp, chicken wings. All were fine, nothing exceptional. Liked the waitstaff didn't rush us as we were enjoying watching the dolfins and pelicans.
