Nice Gators option located off the beaten path. Tips cal bar foods, great wings and fish sandwiches. Overall, good price and worthy for bar food.

Stopped for dinner while traveling. This place was so loud ( piped creepy music) and unattractive , we ended up leaving. It didn't look clean either. And, lastly, when we asked what kind of wine they had, the waitress said red or white. Sorry I hate to write a bad review.

Been here a couple times. Not bad for a sports bar. The wings are pretty good but about the same as any sports bar in town. The beer was cold and service was pretty good.

I don't live near a Gators but used to and always loved their wings. Just stopped in Jacksonville and wings are still good. Not much happening today but service was good and everyone enjoyed their food. From wraps to cheesesteak to fish and chips, all enjoyed.

The service was slow and uninterested in us. The food was average. It was not busy so you would think they would have been better! The place was full of uncleaned tables.

We went to Gator's for the wings and the did not disappoint. Love that we could get them grilled well done to add a little more flavor. Lots of different sauces to choose from too.

This is a good place to go for buffalo wings and such. They have a variety of flavors and different options to choose from. I like it because of the location. Service is pretty good and quick. Food is cooked to order which is a good thing.
