Be sure to try the gator tail and fried pickles appetizers. The gator tail was tender with the perfect batter and not drowed in seasoning. Tasted great.

Gator's has been here a long time and they still have the best wings around! And the rest of the menu is great also! The service is always good

We arrived about 11:30am for a lunch and had to wait about 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us to sit. It took another 7 or so minutes for anyone to take our drinks. When the food arrived, the wings were cold and the Hawaiian Salad we ordered was pathetic. All the produce (lettuce, celery) looked like something that should have... More

I'm from out of town and staying at the Hampton in Apopka. It's a short skip and a jump to Gators. I wanted a salad and a beer. Red (when you see her strawberry blonde hair, you'll know why she's called Red) engaged immediately. She let me try an IPL but I opted for the Goose Island IPA. Then she... More

I don't think you can find better wings than Gators. I usually pick up a batch for parties or even when we have friends over for dinner as a side dish. Without doubt, everyone comments on how good the wings are. The customer service for take out is great as is the dining service.

Very good Wings, many flavors, many styles- naked, battered, re-tossed, etc. For me, wings are all about the Blue Cheese dipping sauce, and Gator's Blue Cheese is little more than "bottled" blue cheese salad dressing! It's thin, dull, and lacking in real blue cheese. Same goes for the bottled Ranch dressing. So . . . . . . Good wings... More

We visited this Gators at 7 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy but our server was very friendly and attentive. Also, our food came out quickly. We will definitely be returning for another date night!

We didnt realize until we got there we visited on trivia night, they had numerous empty tables but were "holding" them for big parties for trivia. We were told by the hostess. "You can wait but they will probably be here a couple hours for trivia and won't leave". Um ok, let the trivia people take up tables people could... More

Good food and reasonable prices and slow service, not sure if under staff or slow day. Maybe could let you know about expected time of food delivery if running low on staff!
