My friend and I had taken in a movie at the "cheap seats" theater around the corner. While I'm not usually fond of typical "bar food",it was about 5 P.M.,and Gators was near so we gave it a try. Honestly, I figured I wouldn't find much I wanted to eat, but I was very happy with my choice of the... More

My review is simple... Disappointing.. Gators Dockside has so many good locations but this one is by far the worst! I went for lunch and drinks yesterday and 3 minutes after sitting at the bar I was greeted by a cockroach crawling on the bar top.. if you are sitting on the far left side of the bar you will...

I have been here a number of time,I enjoy the show Al puts on Friday evening. The food is good but the service is pitiful at best. Plan on sitting at your table for 20-30 minutes before anyone takes your order. This is an ongoing issue with this place. If only they could hire a good wait staff.

Gators has pool and games without smoking as in many pool halls and great hamburgers.There are lots of other games The side where the pool games are is a little too hot due to the large lights and the other games nearby

Came in for a late lunch...on a weekday. Not crowded, maybe 4 tables occupied. Server was attentive and took our order quickly... the food took quite a while to be served though. Wing sauce was bland, if you like some spice order hot... medium is not spicy at all.

On a recent visit to Deland, our family decided to eat at Gator Dockside. We had previously visited the Gator Dockside in Gainesville...and loved it. The staff there is great and got our large party right in! We were lucky enough to be able to watch both of our favorite football teams at once...the Florida Gators and the Georgia Bulldogs!...

Nice lunch for 6 of us, but two of the sandwiches had the bread burnt almost black, had to trim it off with a knife.

We had a retirement party with approximately 50 people, they set aside space for everyone to sit together, designated 2 servers for our area, they were very accommodating, service was excellent, food was timely and they cashed us out by person when we were ready. Great times!!

I just loved the hot spicy chicken that Gators was serving. I tried some other dishes but I really stick at their chicken wings
