Love this Place! I've been coming to Gator's for years and it's one of my favorite spots. The wings are the absolute best around. When I have anyone come into town I bring them here to try their wings. The pizza and burgers are very good too. The place is family friendly and then also have a good bar crowd and fun atmosphere at night. There are always good specials and discounts that I get by email. I recommend, you wont be disappointed!

Gators is actually alright. I went for the wings and pizza... nothing of what all these reviews say! All these people giving 5stars are 100% mostlikely associated with this place. I think that the owner from Hooters should check out their recipe because the buffalo wings tasted exactly like Hooters wings. My first time there and as me and my friends are walking in idk if it was the bartender or the owner (bald guy) (if this helps lol) but he says to us "you guys better leave a tip because that's what the waitress survives on" I was like really?! didnt know what to say but either he's not paying right or people aren't leaving tips because the waitresses aren't doing their job right! Which my waitress mostly never came to our table (exceptable). Then forgot a couple of our orders twice... A beer hahaha. Still left a tip! What an experience... I don't recommend this place only because of the money hungry comment!

P.s. i guess I had to be the one to tell the TRUTH!


Awesome Wings!

We went here for lunch today. The wings are great on multiple levels. 1) They are huge.2) The breading is great.3) The sauce is awesome. (I had the Garlic Buffalo).We will definitely be back here in the near future.
