Nice for a bite to eat sitting beside Lake Sumter. Menu choices are ok. Several fish offerings. Staff friendly. Moderate prices. We eat there regularly.

Watched first half of the Big Game (aka SB) here, was surprisingly not busy. They have an all day everyday 2 for 1 Happy Hour which we didn't expect. Had some tasty nachos and other bar food while watching the boring first half of the game and alternately gazing out onto beautiful Lake Sumpter--it's a good spot.

Not just seafood. Something for everyone. A lot of food at a fair price. Snacks great to share. Over-sized bar drink the guys loved.

Stopped in for happy hour and a few appetizers. Drinks came ok but food took quite a while. The server said they were busy. Inside was empty and outside was half full. Only ordered hot wings and gator bites. Gator bites were delicious and wings were only ok. The wings were over cooked, dry and small portion.

The food was good but a little too much oil was used in frying the Gulf coast bucket.. Next time I will try a main course salad with seafood.

Service is pretty slow and the food is really not that great, surprised on all the good reviews. Waited for about 15 minutes before a server came over, never got the extra sauces we ordered.

Friends took us here for lunch, the atmosphere was nice and the food was fantastic. Our waiter sucked. He was there as soon as we sat down and took our drink order. We waited almost 20 minutes to have them delivered. Then we didn't see him again for another 25 minutes when he finally took our food orders. 20 minutes... More

Went to RJ Gators with my son visiting. Sat outside by water which was nice. Garbage nachos were very good. Ordered 20 wings but most were the flats instead of drummettes. I wish they would go back to all Drummettes. Much better and easier to eat.

Thank Cynthia F
