When we arrived the server was quick to take our order, the food was very good and prepared very good. The staff was very friendly.

Food was delicious, service was slow and the restaurant was almost empty. If you order beer or wine you're good. I ordered a vodka martini on the rocks and it arrived, after a long wait, SALT rimmed. OOPS. Received a true martini after another long wait. We think the bartender was on break and the waitress was inexperienced.

It's a bad sign when the kitchen doesn't know what's in the soup . . . ! That was our introduction to the Crazy Gator in Eustis. It had come "highly recommended" by a clerk at a local store (who highly recommended every restaurant in town). But we wanted to be on the water, so we tried the Gator. I... More

Everything we've ordered so far has been really good. The chicken wings are the best, large wings cooked just right. Very friendly staff.

The food is decent and the beer is cheap, but the service is absolutely horrendous! We often sit on the patio as we had kinda of become regulars, and time and time again, we felt forgotten about. Yesterday we stopped in around 4, we were greeted promptly, our drink order was taken and arrived in a timely manner, no menu's... More

Stopped in on Sunday for some lunch and drinks. Nothing fancy, but the food was good and the view of the lake was very nice. The gator appetizer and the wing basket were both delish. My bloody Mary was top-notch. Nice place to have a relaxing afternoon, but don't expect any frills.

I have been to this restaurant three times. Each time was a disappointment. Because of its proximity of Ferran Park, and view of Lake Eustis, the Crazy Gator is often crowded. Unfortunately, most of these patrons are travelers who don't know any better. The food is bland, colorless and flavorless. I made the embarrassing mistake of bringing two foreign guests... More
