This is a great place for happy hour. Good apps and a large selection of draft beers. We were there for sunset and you can get a very good view from their deck. Lots of pelicans to watch. Tom and Stacy were very welcoming. I highly recommend this spot.

Went with the fish tacos which were cold and tasteless. Order of... More

Staying at Sunset Vistas this joint is a 5 minute drive away......very quiet this time of year especially at the beginning of the week.....completely dead in the bar but the staff were great....Jack the bar manager recommended other places to visit & would recommend Gators in busier periods.

Just left after being seated at a dirty table that wasn't cleaned. Waited 15 minutes with no service. Twice told someone would stop by. Been there many times over the ten years in St. Pete never going back. Stopped at the waitress head station as we left, where we were told that they would tell management. NEVER GOING BACK!

So, funny story. Went there for happy hour about 5 PM. Order included 3 drinks and wings, which were also on happy hour. Asked for the wings to be well done, wet with lots of sauce, med hot spice heat and blue cheese for dip. Waiter (Andrew) even asked if blue cheese dip was fine. Of Course! ~ Guess what?... More

Saw this place as we crossed the bridge at John's Pass on Saturday afternoon and decided to give it a try. Definitely glad we did. Staff are very friendly. We asked for a table upstairs overlooking the water and were seated immediately. Waitress was attentive and took our drink and food orders in a reasonable time. Food was OK but... More

Typical bar food menu - lots of fried foods & large portions, large outdoor and indoor space, plenty of parking, even room at the dock for several boats but there are no bumpers to protect them. I liked seeing a "Jimmy Buffet" looking man helping people dock. There is a nice view looking across John's Pass.
