This place when you walk in seems to be a bit of a hole in the wall, but the food is great, service has been consistently good and restaurant is clean. It has become a place that we like to go to regularly to get some wings and catch a game.

My wife and my youngest son (18) took advantage of the "All You Can Eat" Wings on Monday Sep 19th. Service was really good and the wings were tasty and hot! We didn't have to wait between reorders and our our drinks stayed full! We love Gators!

Been here two yeas running for FFL draft. Super accommodating. Wifi was good, the food and service were very good. A bunch of the guys got all you can eat wings and may have won on that pick. Loved the option, we were there a while. Gripe: (Minus a Star) Weak drinks. The killer of any bar. Fix it management,... More

Though we live only a few miles away, this was our first visit to Gators. We were greeted by a friendly manager-type guy, but that turned out to be the lone bright spot as far as service was concerned. Our waitress, while not overtly rude, seemingly had other things to do because she didn't seek to spend much time at... More

We come here occasionally and if you're getting wings and fries, you'll get some good grub. The service isn't fast. At lunch they seem to have a limited number of wait staff. Lunch specials are salads, wings, and sandwiches and are cheaper and smaller portions than main menu items. I usually get the barbecue chopped chicken salad. The lettuce today... More

I've been here several times and the meals are pretty good, prices aren't bad depending on the day you're there. The service was pretty good. I ordered my first meal there, butter special, cooked medium and fries. The burger came came out well done so it was very dry, the fries were soggy like they been sitting under the salamander...

Other than WINGS, just your average bar with food. Go on "All You Can Eat Wing Night" and try all different types with a cold bevy. Don't expect fast service so re-order as soon as you get your re-fill if you are hungry. Take the whole gang and have fun! Family Friendly for sure.

Other than slow service the food was really good. The wings were some of the best gator wings we have had. The BBQ salad was really good and they will change to your sauce of preference.

Stopped in with a friend. This was my 2nd visit, as I am just not a fan of this category of eatery (emphasis on wings, greasy-fried food). Ordered a burger with garlic mashed potatoes instead of fries, and of course mine came out with fries…after a long wait. They brought out the mashed, but I was 60% done with the... More

If you go with agroup of more than 4 people good luck on everyone getting their food. You ordered first and never, ever get your food. The waitresses, there were 2, never come by as others are getting their food to see if anyone needs anything. An extra order of something was left at the table no one ordered. The... More
