Gators is always nice - with a great view and right o the water. You can have a drink and watch the dolphons without the crowds at John's Pass

Came to gators on a Friday night with friends. Raegan and Angel were fantastic bartenders and we received phenomenal service. The peel and eat shrimp was awesome as well! If it wasn’t for the bartenders I wouldn’t of stayed as long !!

Honestly, I come here weekly to see Regan and Angel. Best bartenders in the area, always keeping the bar fun and personal. Without them, gators would fail. SO happy to be so close with these two phenomenal people. ❤️❤️
