Remember Gators Restaurant is a fun wedding reception locaition and can be very busy, keep this in mind and if possible try to visit The Gators Cafe for dinner.
Gator's is not your typical wedding reception venue but we wanted something more laid back and fun which this was the place! We had our reception on the Tiki Bar which overlooked the water. The staff was great, very friendly and on top of everything. We served a buffet and the food was amazing!
They took care of tablecloths and helped set up the decor we brought it. We were able to keep our wedding cakes stored in their cooler prior to the reception. They provided us with a speaker system to hook up our own music from our IPOD. There was a DJ and band playing downstairs so after most guests had left, we were able to go downstairs and dance the night away (and at no extra cost!).
We are from out of state and had never been to Gator's so we weren't sure what to expect but they accommodated all our needs and we were very happy with how everything turned out. If you are looking for something less formal and more relaxed, Gator's is a great place to celebrate your special occasion!
Fun place to meet, chow down and blow off some steam. Not the place for a romantic evening to watch the sunset (although that's a future option from thier dockside tables). Tonight was a night to cheer and scream at the screens showing tonight's Lightning game, and argue every whistle blown by the ref. I had the Big Fish Sandwich, which was a very large portion of fresh fish on a nice bun (not those lame ones served at other places), with fresh lettuce, tomato and onions, and tartar sauce on the side.
I had a side of fries that were perfect: the right portion, size, crunch and taste. My wife had a burger that she loved, plus our nacho appetizer was very good. Our server, Sara M, was super. She raced the very busy circuit continually tonight, kept our table stocked as needed, and kept her friendly smile at all times. Very nice job by all!
I went to Gators for the first time this past Sunday, expecting the worst (given the reviews). The place is generally laughed-at by locals, but we decided to try it out since we were on the water and Gators has very nice docks we could access...I add points for the awesome dock setup. Service was passable!
Sure I had to go begging for a refill on my tiny iced tea, but I've seen much worse. The Veggie quesadilla was downright delicious, as was the fish spread. My friends wings were "meh", but edible. Overall a solid 3-star "It's OK!" really fits the bill. I probably would not come here off the street, but off the water - anytime!
