Last minute trip and spending the night in Ocala. After years of stopping here mid-way, never knew about this place until seeing comments on Trip Advisor- found out it has been open 3 years but only saw 8 reviews. Decided to try Gators since it was so close to our hotel and we were FLOORED! We didn't find it hard to find--- next to a mall-- and the place is actually a pretty big "sports bar" atmosphere place. Ashley was our very pleasant waitress and recommended some good eats: wings - 1/2 hot garlic and 1/2 Parmesan garlic, fried mushrooms, and a huge chicken sandwich .... All really good and we were stuffed. Washed it down with 2-4-1 draft beers. Terrific place and we'll DEFINITELY return. Only recommendation to management is that we were going to get a "pitcher" but decided the 2-4-1; after dinner we heard from several that it didn't really matter because you don't get much beer for what you actually pay for...Know there is a bottom line, but consider a little bigger beer mug or pitcher since the cost for either is not cheap. Great place!

Tucked back in a shopping plaza, it is easy to miss Gators. Having done a web search for hot wings in Ocala, Gators came up. There grilled wings are a great alternative to deep fried wings and they have an extremely well appreciated taste. I prefer the hot, garlic wings. Whenever we have wings, Gators is our destination.
