I am writing once again about 'THE GATOR' - I love this place. At times it is busy so be patient. The food always comes out piping hot. The steamed shrimp is killer (1 lb. - $12.99 - 2 lbs. good to share comes with slaw - $21.99). I like the slaw and I am not a slaw fan. I like this shrimp better than The Freezers (Restaurant in Homosassa - locals know it.) My mother always gets the scallops. She gets them grilled. 6 scallops - good price ($11.99) comes with slaw and fries. She upgrades for $1 and gets the onion rings or the sweet potato fries instead of the fries or tater tots. I prefer the fries. The fish and chips is good fried fish for the fried food lover. The 1/2 order ($6.99) comes with 2 pieces - the full order has 4 - she gets the 1/2 order. The burgers rock as well. I have eaten almost everything on the menu and now I get steamed shrimp every time I go. The grouper can be dry at times (steamed or blackened) if it is fried it is not dry.
Beer and wine only - cocktails are the 'fake' FL liquor. NA beer available.
THE REASON FOR MY NEW REVIEW - they are expanding! They will have a new inside bar and indoor seating in 2 months! I cannot wait!
Bikers love it here - especially on a nice day - lots of Harleys!
Live music. If a train goes by the beer is discounted!
Check out my other review of The Gator as well. This is a mom and pop joint - I like to cater to the locals. Parking is limited so if it is full go across the street to park. Be careful crossing - it is a busy street. See you at The Gator soon!
