We decided to eat here for dinner based on a friends recommendation. So glad we did! The food was great! We ordered the pulled pork sliders and corn crab fritters for appetizers. Both were good, but highly recommend the fritters! I was unable to eat anything else after, but my husband ordered the treasure island burger. He said it was... More

Nice ambiance, right on the water and accessible by car or by boat. We had great service and good food, including gater bites, which is their signature appetizer. A nice place to eat and watch all of the activity on the water at the same time.

Three vegetarian options which made me very happy. Plenty of dishes for non-vegetarians. My husband loved the jambalaya with plenty of spicy sausage and spices. The nacho appetizer was huge, plenty... More

The food here was good and the staff was helpful, but service was a little slow and it wasn't very busy. They have a great view, especially at sunset. I'd recommend eating upstairs and outside, you get a better view at sunset. Pretty casual place.

We usually eat across the pass at the tiki hut or hooters. Tried Gators for a change. Really good food, you can tell it's not popped out of a frozen box! Had Grouper sandwich and the Cuban sandwich. Both were awesome. It was Monday and lunch time, but the place is set up for nice upstairs dining or semi rowdy... More

What an easy trek from St. Pete Beach. Love the waterside dining with boats and wildlife! Excellent blackened cod tacos, different twist with Cole slaw underneath fish - so delicious! Service was great and they have live music at night. We will be back!
