Stopped at this neighborhood bar and enjoyed wonderful oysters. Also ordered clam chowder, oyster stew and boiled peanut. All were very good. It is not a great location and the interior was a little dated but service, beer and oysters made up for it.

Wonderful oysters and gulf shrimp. The rock shrimp were good but (because of their size and nature) too hard to open. Have not tried the soups or wings. The atmosphere is friendly, rustic.....just a great neighborhood seafood/sports bar kind of place. Being a Florida Gator fan helps as well.....hence the name! Not in the best location.....(run-down strip mall sort of setting) but it adds to the character somehow! My only complaint.....The servers (all women) had long hair which was not pulled back...Having done time in the restaurant industry, this should be a requirement.

We have been to the thirsty Gator several times. Each visit is a wonderful experience with fantastic oysters. In particular we love the Apalachicola oysters which is what Tim, the owner, usually tries to get. The wings are good and others have told us that the sandwiches and burgers are also very good.
The location is not ideal but we drive 45 minutes from Kissimmee to eat there.

The staff is very personable and fun to be around. They shuck the oysters for you at the bar.

If you like oysters this is the best place in town to go.

Heard about the oysters through friends so I decided to check it out with my friends! They were wonderful! We also ordered wings and they were very meaty and delicious! Definitely will be visiting again
