This is a road side stand. For those that don't want to try gator, their are hamburgers, hotdogs and fish sandwiches. Overall, we enjoyed it.

This is a small family-run restaurant on the approach into the Everglades National Park out of Homestead. There's outside seating and maybe 6-8 bar stool seats inside. We tried the gator bites tacos and a hamburger. Truthfully, the plain hamburger was my favorite by far. The tacos were good, but the gator bites are very chewy - a workout. The... More

We were looking forward to returning to have the best gator in the world but they are closed! My son has been depressed all evening. The number was disconnected and there was a sign on the door thanking their loyal fans and customers.

This road side restaurant has been permanently closed. Stopped by the Gator Grill on my way back from the Alligator farm on their last day of service. Had the Gator tacos and Gator sandwich. The grilled gator meat was tender and they were out of all the accompanying sauces. Service was indifferent and rude, but I guess they did not... More

Always a little skeptical about stopping at what may appear to be a roadside eatery with tables outside. Stopped here twice in a week. Had an order of Gator Kebobs - a very tasty treat. Stopped two later for the burgers I saw being served the first time I was there. The burgers - large and deliciously cooked. Don't miss... More

We stopped by the Gator Grill on Sunday Jan. 18, during the ML King Holiday weekend, on our way back to Homestead after a day in Everglades Nat’l Park. The food (stir-fried gator & frog legs) was passable, but the atmosphere was miserable. The place reeked of re-used, deep-fried grease. The outdoor cabana (which is the dining area) and adjoining...

Gator grill is a touristic place in the Everglades. Alligator is good but size is small. Price for us over the range. Service is fast.

I have had a alligator in quite a few different locations, and have to say that the alligator tacos here are the best I have ever eaten. The meat is cooked and seasoned to perfection and the sauce that is on drizzled on to is unbelievable. It does sometimes take a while to get food, but is totally worth the... More
