We found this gem via Trip Advisor (as well do all our out of town eateries!) and it did NOT disappoint. Small and charming. Super friendly service. Great fresh cooked food. We had the mahi tacos, gator sandwich and frog legs. Everyone was happy! Glad we took the ten minute detour off our main route.

Fantastic tacos - would highly recommend! The prices are a little steep for an off the rd type place, so I would go to have a snack / share a dish or two with the family.

We ordered a black and blue burger, grouper sandwich and gator wings. The food was just average, especially for that price. A little too greasy for our taste. We liked the outside seating area - although the feeling was a little bit spoiled by the flies swarming around (maybe that is just a summer thing in Florida).

My daughter and I stopped here for lunch before heading into the Everglades and we had a great time. A local friend had recommended it, and it did not disappoint. The staff is friendly and helpful; my daughter is vegetarian and they made sure she had something great to eat. I went for the gator tacos, and they were delicious!... More

Meals at the Gator Grill reflect Sal's many years of experience which include ten years as chef at Ocean Reef, an upscale development on Key Largo. The gator dishes are excellent as are the burgers. I had a Philly steak sandwich that was better than some I've had in Philadelphia. We've always found Sal and Elsa and the rest of... More

I was visiting from Maine, and on our way to the Everglades we decided to stop and check it out. Great little spot with even better food. We had the Gator Basket and a Bacon cheese burger. The burger was half a pound and absolutely scrumptious. The gator was grilled and served with French fries. Best gator I've had in... More

Made a trip for lunch to find the spot. It is just down the road from "Robert is here". Ordered the blackened Grouper sandwich. It was average nothing to write home about. The sandwich was as much bread as fish. Fish reminded me of a Talapia fillet. Sweet potato fries were ok but under cooked. It is a quaint place... More

Stopped in to get gator but only one person in our party got the gator, the rest of us got the burgers, they were quite delicious! Would definitely go back!

We took a trip to look at the gators and take an airboat ride. Saw the gators, and ate some gator. Our first try with gator...gator tacos, delicious. Fed Pete the friendly peacock french fries, which our grandson got a huge chucle from.
