Love their wings and a bucket of PBR's..... doesn't get any better than that! They also have really good burgers. The service is always great, too.

Nice sports bar with friendly service. "Jimbo" the bartender was great. Food was good, but for a place called Gator's Dockside, I was hoping for more seafood options. No craft beers either.
