This place is HUGE! Several different levels, indoor and outdoor. It is right on Johns Pass on the Treasure Island side--just need to cross the bridge to be in the Johns Pass Village. It has a great view of the marina/docks/touristy area. You can watch dolphins from the outside tables/bar. It is known as the "worlds longest waterfront bar" and... More

You can sit outside by the water and watch the boats go by. We saw dolphin, pelicans, sea gulls, the return of a fishing boat and their catch...all while enjoying a cold brew and some excellent food!

We have been there 2 times and we got very slow service both times. The only reason we go there is because it is right next to our boat club. The second time we went, it took our server 20 minutes to stop by and say hi after we repeatedly asked the hostess and food runner to go get our... More

We had lunch at Gators Cafe and Saloon. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Loved the Grouper and Gater bites. Fantastic views of the bay and John's Pass. Loved watching the dolphins playing off the deck.
