We've had Crazy Gator a couple times and we have come to realize it's really hit or miss. The first time we had chicken salad (no pineapple, thank you) and a burger. The chicken salad sandwhich was great and the burger was decent enough. We went back for the chicken salad and found it totally lacked flavor but made up for it by adding tons of salt. It was bad, to say the least. This time we ordered wings, which were very good. I doubt we will go back because of the hit and miss dinners.

Also, what is the obsession with pineapples at that place? Many of the items are "Hawaiian style" which means they add a pineapple ring. I think it would better without all the extra "Hawaiian" food.

Recently visited Crazy Gators in Eustis with friends who are from Eustis and recommended the place. We sat in a booth and had a great view of the Lake...that was probably about all that was 'great' about our visit.

We ordered chips and salsa as an appetizer. The chips were cold, stale and tasteless. The salsa was tasteless and extremely watery. We sent the chips and salsa back and ordered fried cheese and mushrooms...which were ok but nothing special.

For our entrees we ordered the Chicken salad sandwich and Philly Cheesesteak. The chicken salad was served on a Kaiser bun and unfortunately it was more bread than chicken. The chicken had a huge chunk of gristle in it. The Philly Cheesesteak was ok ...but again nothing out of the ordinary.

Our service was good and the waitress very pleasant.

I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. I would suggest you drive into Leesburg and eat at well known chain restaurant.

This is always a great place to go for the fried fish!! It's the best around, always hot and fresh. If you can get a booth, you have a nice view of Lake Eustis.

Love this place nothing fancy real casual . This Restaurant / Bar sites on Lake Eustis it is an old building that goes back to one of the first built in Eustis. In door seating as well as out door seating the food is outstanding. We go every Friday and Sunday for the all you can eat Fish dinners the price is unbelievably cheap $ 8. 99 for all you can eat fish cant find that any place else. The bar is old fashion never has been changes that is what I like about Crazy Gators and the people are so friendly been going there for 10 years and never had bad food. I give it a 10 !!! Try it I think you will come back when your in the area.. My family comes down every year from Pa. and they love this place..

The Crazy Gator is located in an old historic storage building directly on the shores of Lake Eustis. The old building kind of smells funny, but the food and service are pretty good. It's worth a visit. Try lunch, then take a walk along the lake and the adjacent park. If they could fix the weird smell, it would be great.
