We had the ultimate gator burger & the beer battered finger steaks. Both were good with fries...my husband ordered a Coke & it tasted weird...like not enough syrup..too much soda water. Waitress gave us a new one which had the same taste...she said customers have been complaining about it for a few days...really after 2 days it hasn't been fixed!!!

Finding a dog-friendly patio where my pup can sit near/under the table was greatly appreciated while on a recent road trip. Temps were high, and there wasn't much of a breeze, so the patio was warm, but we were able to find a shady spot to enjoy lunch. Service was swift, and the food was good, typical pub fare.

We ordered from The Frosty Gator because it delivers to hotels (and we were not in the mood for pizza). The food was absolutely delicious — well seasoned and large portions. They managed to get it to us in about thirty minutes, which was wonderful because we were too tired to go out to a restaurant. It has reasonable prices... More

We are making are way across the country. After unloading our bags and checking into our room, we did not feel like going out for dinner. The Frosty Gator came up as only one of a few places that deliver. Even though I did not have a menu, the person who answered the phone walked me through items on the... More

Stopped in for a brew and stayed for dinner because they feature alligator. I had it sautéed in a Cajun sauce. Very good!

GREAT food, excellent service! The menu was available in the hotel room at the Hampton Inn, noticed lots of unique options so we called for delivery. Could not have been easier to order (even with special details), and the person I spoke with was also the person who delivered the food. Extremely nice, and the food was great.

I had the Elk burger (yes real Elk meat and it was amazing) with avocado and cheddar. The burger was so big i threw the top away and ate it with a fork and knife. The best burger I ever had. Burger and 2 draft beers about $25. Lots of draft options. The whole menu is full of personality and... More

We have eaten here twice for business meals. It is not fancy at all so you have to want this laid back setting. But the food is good and it is a great place to relax and chill.

I am from Maryland on a cross country trip and after 45 days this is the worst food I have EVER EVER had. Are you kidding me. This is supposedly a burger place specializing in elk an buffalo but nothing is FRESH so everything is VERY VERY well done like a rock. Avoid this place at all costs.

Pub style greasy spoon. Wait staff is friendly. Food has too much grease for my liking. Decor is interesting. Not one of my favorite spots in town.
