This restaurant is well worth the walk over the John's Pass Bridge. We have never been disappointed with the service, quality of food, price and especially the view from the upstairs deck. Well done staff and owners of Gators..... !!!!!!

This place is nestled right in John's Pass on the water. Get a table outside and enjoy the view.

Management response:

Portions are plenty to share dishes and get to taste a bit of what your family and friends are having. I loved the outdoor dining and being able to see the... More
