Extremely bad parking situation. Last time we went police and locals were out making sure people didn't park on their property, which I can understand. We just ended up leaving and won't go back unless by water.

My husband drove a taxi for fun two summers ago and this place was the busiest on the lake. Always had good entertainment, food is always good, not great but good and with no happy hour, the bar is still always full. You won't find beer under $4.00 here but we all still come. On the water, better parking if you boat in.

Our grandson, Jack, will be 8 on Saturday so we had B-day dinner last night at his choice of eateries! Two years in a row he has chosen Shady Gators. Our waiter, Brent, was super and kept Jack in Mellow Yellow. The owner came to our table and "High 5vd" Jack. Our catfish whiskers appetizer and sauce were tasty and arrived quickly, as did our sandwiches, homemade fries, french fries, and red beans and rice. Kiddoes could dance around on the "cubby" deck. Watched as the rain came down the channel and saw a lightening strike show, too! Good Night! Good Family Time!
