Sitting on the deck cannot be better across from Johns Pass. Food was very good but the service is lacking.

“Time has changed this place for the better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I stopped in for a few drinks and an appitizer a few weeks ago and we were very impressed! We haven't been to Gators in well over 5 years (we live in Tampa). We were so shocked when we saw new hard wood floors, new chairs and tables, new bar and a brand new logo. Our waitress was very sweet and made our short time there a lot of fun. The food was delcious. We went back a week later and tried their breakfast and we had no complaints. All the staff we encountered were nice and fun. We will be coming back. This place is a staple on Treasure Island and we are thrilled at how well they are doing. We can't wait to go back!

“Fun place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

We went to Gators for the Reggae music and we weren't disappointed! The band was fantastic. Friendly place, we even made friends with friends of the band. Oh.... and the food was good also. Regular pub fare, but good. Even had gator. The sunset from the deck was beautiful. They have gators and pirates outside for photo opportunities if you are so inclind, which I am. I love stuff like that. They sell T-shirts and have great drinks. Great place for a night out.

Was a bit disappointing. Tried the Gator tail, and it was hard fried, over breaded, and chewy. More fries in the basket than the actual order. Drinks were ok but service left a little to be desired. Atmosphere was like biker bar meets college bar.

“Excellent primerib”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

My husband had the prime rib and said it was the best he has eaten. Loved the rub they had prepared it with. The meal was good. We didn't realize it had to do with the college team. Lots of memorbilia in it.
