Food was good and you can't beat the short walk from Beach Place Condo right over the bridge. Inside and outside seating.

The chili is great. Sit outside and if you are lucky, the dolphins will put on a show. Service excellent

Manger is not experienced in Food Service he worries more about fisherman approaching his docks. Yes great location but don't waste.your time the food is subpar to say the least. Needs a face lift and a new set of eyes to change it around. Its a tourist trap and not a good one at all. venture across the water and eat at several establishments on the north side of Johns Pass. Local here. Enjoy

We live about 20 miles north of John's Pass and every once in a while, we enjoy being a tourist. The last time my daughter was at Gators, she was three. Today she is 11. She was kind of hesitant going in because she's a picky eater. I told her in the parking lot that we may get to see dolphins if we eat outside. We lucked out -- one high top left outside and within a minute of sitting down -- dolphins!! Then the bridge went up to let a couple sailboats through.......high entertainment! Our waiter, Conner, was very friendly and accommodating. We tried the mild wings which were tasty. (I'm from Buffalo, so it's hard for me to judge since that's the home of the chicken wing!) My daughter got the cheeseburger and I got the fish tacos. She said the burger was not as good as Daddy's, but it was good. LOL My fish tacos were insanely delish -- and messy!! Fries were as good as I remember too. BUT -- probably the most favorable part of this night was heading around outside to use the restroom only to find that you FINALLY moved them inside!!!!!!!!!!! The new restrooms are beautiful -- as a woman, I thank you! I always dreaded using your facilities. Overall, great experience. And please thank Conner for us.
