By all means stop in this sports / beach / live music venue and enjoy a beer on the deck by the water. But keep your expectations low. This is a bar, it's dirty and it reeks of stale beer. The thought of ordering food here made me nervous...the reality was as bad as expected. Nachos with liquid cheese and canned hot peppers? Why bother? Typical bar food which is just not what I want when dining out. The beer was just fine, though.

Stopped into Gator's looking for a good frozen Margarita and some light fare around 9 on a warm Friday evening. Really wanted to sit overlooking the inlet and just unwind from the day. The visit was anything other than pleasurable and relaxing. Not a lot of people, service was extremely slow, limited menu selection and the worst watered down drinks in plastic cups. The tables were dirty and sticky and the wait staff appeared put out that we asked them to wipe it down. Save your money!

We visited this place at night. It is really nice how it is on the water. They had a band playing and the drinks were flowing. I would definitely go back.

Just stopped in for cocktails and to sit by the water. Service was very good, but I thought they were a bit overpriced.

If you have friends visiting from...well, anywhere...you have to take them to Gators. The food is great.Especially the Reel Reuben and Pork Cuban sandwiches. Best of all they brought back Tator Tots!!! Always an great boat show going thru the Pass. And always a great dolphin show. I'm a local and I've been enjoying it since I moved here in 1974.
