This place exceeded my expectations. The kids loved feeding the alligators and there's a small playground for little ones. The atmosphere is fun and laid back and the staff greets you at the door. Our server, Jen, was excellent! She was friendly, knowledgable, accommodating and attentive. All of the food was delicious and I was so excited to see fried... More

This place was right next door to the hotel we stayed, so we thought we would go look. My wife liked the gift shop as it had a lot of Christmas items. We found a coupon for a 48 oz. Blue Margarita there so we tried it and it was very good. lol. The bartender gave us samples of crab... More

My two girls and I same here for supper while on vacation! It has a super fun atmosphere! The decor is fabulous and bright! We were able to see the alligators with an option to feed them, while waiting for our table. There's 2 bars, so the adults can drink while checking the place out. There is an arcade and... More

We loved seeing all the gators that we were told were rescued from a farm, which is awesome. We weren't hungry from a big breakfast but wanted to eat something small in the bar & grill. Our waitress Heather was helpful and really took the time to teach us the area and make sure any questions we had were answered.... More
