“Great location ... Food average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We had a few starters here rather than a big meal ...
Ordered a what was described as a whole pound of wings which when brought out was about 8 wings ! Ok I know they were bigger than your average ... Then advised to have there speciality waffle fries which we all thought were disgusting and wish we'd just gone for the usual fries ! Caesar salad was good though ... Margarita was ok nothing special .... We were on our last night of the holiday superb location but food was not great we will perhaps go for just drinks next time if anything ...

Went to the gators with friends on Memorial weekend 2013 the place was buzzing,the atmosphere
Was superb,it was packed, but the service was first class. We sat outside over looking the
Water, food always seem to taste better outside. My wife had the ground beef on toasted rye with all the trimmings, I had the large white fish with all the trimmings, both dishes were excellent. We went again 2 days later. When we go back to Florida in Oct on vacation from England we will

We were supposed to only go to Gator's for a wedding reception..until Tropical Storm Andrea washed out the beach wedding location. The staff at Gator's were understanding, helpful, and enjoyable to work with. The reception area really wasn't going to work for the wedding and it just so happened that 2 parties were ending in the big room next door, so within minutes (literally) of those parties ending, the place was set up for a wedding! Izzy, a female manager (whose name I didn't get), and their staff were so helpful in setting up the room, cleaning it, and doing whatever I asked of them.
The food was great and while it wasn't exactly what the bride and groom had planned, they and all of the guests were happy.

Great location!!! Food and service was just OK. Might be a good place to have a cold beer and watch the boats come in but thats about it.

“Just the Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Gators is a great location. You can visit by land or water. They have people to help you dock your boat, which is nice. But it all stops there. The food is pricey and not good. Not even good for "bar food". The draft beer was warm, so was forced to pay top dollar for a domestic bottle. Spent $45 on mediocre food (sandwiches) and 4 beers for lunch. Our server had too many tables so service was poor. The view, and watching boats go by was nice, you really can't go wrong with John's Pass. And they actually had a good band for entertainment.
