Great place for lunch or dinner. I love the Gator bites. They have many big gators to see outside. They also have a large fish tank inside with a small gator or two. Sometimes they let you hold the baby gator.

It's a place to see alligators - maybe, even, some in their natural environment - but you will see some behind wire. And parrots behind screening - getting grumpy with squirrels eating their food! Lots of wading birds around in the creeks. But all a little contrived. If you want an airboat ride, this is probably as close to downtown... More

This is my "go to" for photography or just to run away for awhile. There is always something to see, from alligators to birds - yes, even bald eagles fly above your head.

You may even find the guy that has a weed wacker for an arm. This place shows you what the backwoods of Florida (which is mostly the entire state) would be like....that is if you are brave enough to go into the woods. Remember, we have black bear, snakes, spiders, alligators and enough creatures to thrill anyone that is into... More

airboat ride was lovely and tour guide very knowledgeable but due to 90 degree weather the guide told us gators like to stay under water where it is cool, so go early am if hot weather you will see more!

This is an off-the-beaten-path type of place... quirky but fascinating. Decent food. Great place to see alligators peeping above the water under the walkways!

We have dined here, had drinks here, listened to music here. It is a nice place to go and relax. It needs some updating but overall we go there all the time and still enjoy it.
