This is a typical bar - busy on the weekends, kinda sleepy inbetween. The location is fabulous - on the water overlooking Lake Jessup, with seating inside and outside. Drink prices reflect the fact that they have substantial entertainment on the weekends - but they also offer 2for1 margaritas for $8 24x7. And they have 3 levels of food -... More

The Lazy Gator Bar is a sprawling conglomeration of indoor and outdoor seating nestled in the Black Hammock property. There is a nice view of the water from the outdoor section and a nice shaded canopy. The drinks here are not a bad deal, they have 2-4-1 margaritas all day everyday and the price is $7.95, although I'm not exactly... More

Come here while you wait to take an airboat ride. Two for the price of one margaritas. This bar sits over the water on Lk Jessup (largest alligator population in Florida). They have live music on thec eekend

Prices obviously for tourists. Way too expensive for locals to frequent. Third rock band today. OK only. Screwdriver $ 6.25. Bottle beer 3.40 . Very little food for the price. Kinda biker bar. Not many bikes today. Able to hold small gator. Not as much fun as previously. Need drink specials, better band and larger portions of fries and other... More

It's a lovely location let down by the fact my bartender never cared about me or offered a menu. I got a beer in a plastic glass despite being sat at the bar inside and ready to eat. Please train your staff to talk to your customers, it felt like a puppy mill

Disappointed in this one. Was a drive out there and we WERE warned that is was a locals hangout....but still thought it would be nicer around the dock area and that we would see gators. We say 2-3 babies but that was about it. The "marina" was in bad shape, property landscaping needed some TLC, must look a lot better... More

View was nice food nothing much band was great but we had to leave because of the smoking. No women wants to sit and eat smelling like cigar smoke! So unless u want to breathe and smell like a cigar. Don't go there!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Could you let us know which location you were seated in where you experienced this? Were you inside the deck bar (with the stage), the smaller bar or the outdoor terrace? You reply would be greatly helpful and we will address it right away. More

I saw this place on Living Social so we bought it and went to check it out and instantly loved it just by the drive to get there. There are airboat rides and a boat launch, gators everywhere, exotic birds, a restaurant that I will go back to try, a gift shop and of course the bar! Great bartender, and... More

From watching gators, birds, people sipping beers, riding air boats or playing corn hole this place was fun! A great break from people and a pleasant stop on our way out of FL! I will go back!
