“Helpful Tips for Gatorbites in Fort Myers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

I enjoyed my recent dinner at Gatorbites. It's basically a local sports bar but the food and atmosphere are fun. Here are some tips to help you
1) it's located in a Publix Plaza directly opposite from the Tangiers Outlet mall
2) they have inside and outside seating but only tvs inside so if you want to see a game sit inside
3) plenty of room at bar and bar high tops but also have tables/booths too
4) lots of tvs to see the game
5) good selection of beers on tap - even sierra nevada pale ale. plenty of other drink options
6) wings were good and they give you plenty of food whatevr you order.
7) specialty food is GATOR - lots of ways to try it
8) this is like a friendly neighborhood bar - locals are nice and staff is pleasant

I would certainly return again. Thanks

“Gatorific!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is my second time having Gator, and my mates first experience. I am so glad we found this place around the corner from our hotel, and the Gator was fantastic!!!! The service was awesome, and even though it was a Saturday night and it is a sports bar, it was really quiet and tamed! When I come back to the Fort Myers area, I will make it a "must do" !!!!!

“Next door to our hotel !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We were staying at the Residence Inn Marriott, and we were going out for a late evening meal. We asked at the desk and they suggested Gatorbites next door. Being that we could walk over, we decided to try it out. We found a nice "bar & grill". Kind of a sports bar and it seemed to have a "local" crowd, which always seems good. We were greeted at the door and shown to a booth. A very nice waitress immediately came to welcome us, take our drink order and offer some suggestions. As many tmie as we visited Florida, we had never tried "Gator". We found many options of "Gator" such as Gator Bites, Gator Tail Basket, Gtor Quesadilla's and a Gator Sampler Patter. My wife ordered a Salad, and I ordered a Shrimp Nacho Plate. Then we order some Gator Bites to share. They were excellent !!!! We enjoyed the experience of having Gator as well as our other meals. NIce place, good service and a comfortable atmosphere.

“Great gator & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We've tried to order gator bites as an appetizer multiple places around the area, but everyone is always out! Enter Gatorbites - super convenient location and great service. They have a lot of other things on the menu, seafood & otherwise, but most importantly lots of gator! We had the buffalo-style gator bites (amazing) and the gator nachos (okay). We'll definitely be back to try more and our waitress was really kind, the food came out fast, and it was all worth it!
