Late night arrival seeking for a good place to eat. Gator’s Dockside Bay Meadows was recommended by Trip Advisor and the hotel. We had a great meal wings and salmon. The Restaurant is a popular bar hangout in the area.

Love their wings and a bucket of PBR's..... doesn't get any better than that! They also have really good burgers. The service is always great, too.

This is close to the hotel and generally has good food, it's gotten a bit pricey over the years. I had salmon and it was good. The service was extremely slow.

Nice sports bar with friendly service. "Jimbo" the bartender was great. Food was good, but for a place called Gator's Dockside, I was hoping for more seafood options. No craft beers either.
