We selected Gatorbites because our mid-Western friends had never had gator. We had it blackened and it was really, really good. Everyone was surprised that it was not chewy or fishy. I'd never had gator that wasn't fried, but I was impressed. My friend had the tuna salad sammich, which was good as well. I'd go back for a casual lunch/dinner if I were in the area.

This is a great place to pop out and grab dinner or a drink. Family friendly, sports on the TV, sit outside on the porch and enjoy the simple atmosphere. The Sweet Chili wings on Tuesday Wing Nights are a different twist that are really nice.

We ate here twice on our trip to Fort Myers. Both times had a very positive experience. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Had a minor issue with our bill and they went above and beyond to make it right. Food was yummy.

We have eaten here at least ten times since they opened. Although half of the place is a Key- West Style bar, the other half is great for kids. Very casual, clean, quick service. Good place for mom and dad to unwind with a drink while the kids have a fun meal. Prices are very reasonable.
The owner, Todd, is there almost every night and greets everyone with a smile. He checks on each table personally to make sure everything is going well.
