Recently on a sunny afternoon my sister and I decided to give Gators Riverside Grill a try as we were in the Sanford area. We ordered two Bloody Marys and their jalapeño poppers. Bloody Mary’s are wine based vodka mix as they serve only beer and wine. They were delicious topped off with celery,olives,pickle spear and lime and lemon. The poppers are unique as they are freshly made there. The top is open stuffed with cream cheese and a jalapeño baked in a crispy wonton! You get 8 good sized poppers. We were told the burgers are large and tasty. The bartender/server was very attentive and personable. A definite return when we are in the Sanford area.

We stumbled across Gators by accident and enjoyed it so much that we went back again during our week vacation in Orlando. Great atmosphere on the river with great service and delicious seafood! Easy to get to by car but also located by a marina with boat docking. Loved it!

My wife and I had lunch with friends at this restaurant during a bicycle ride. We are on the deck overlooking the river. The server was prompt and helpful. All 4 of us had grouper sandwiches, which were very good. Just the refreshment we needed in the middle of a 22 mile bike ride.

Neat riverside bar on the St John’s river. The beer is always cold, food is pretty good. This is very much a neighborhood bar, but everybody is welcome. The structure is made to enjoy the Florida weather. Beer prices very reasonable. Food is generally OK to good. Most staff is pretty friendly. This is not a late nite bar, generally closed by 8-10 pm.

The restaurant was in a nice setting on the St John's river. The seafood dish I had was not the best but ok.3 others with us said their meal was not the greatest. Service was so .so, Pricy for what we paid for our meal. Would not go back.
