The wait time for our food was quite long but they were very Busy on this day. We sat outside by the water and the view is great. You usually see dolphins swimming in the area. Food was just OK and the price is mid range. Atmosphere is hood.

You have to go to Gators if you are in John's Pass. Located right at the bridge over the pass. We just had a drink, but the wings looked pretty tasty. It was raining, so we didn't get to sit outside this trip.

Gator's Cafe is on John's Pass and has a big patio on the water where you can watch the birds and the dolphins. They have a good beer selection and we loved their nachos. The Fish Tacos are delicious and the Jerk Mahi Mahi was very good, though their rice isn't that great. There was live music, just a guy... More
