“Terrible, do not go here!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Had a part of 8, we waited till 11:15 AM & this dump still was not open.

Had eaten here months ago, service was getting poor, decided to try again.

This dump opens 11AM and we waited till almost 11:15, still closed after two times asking when it was opening.

Walked around back, and the day guy & cook were smoking. Asked them when they were going to open, he said "soon".

We left.

I will call Steve, the owner, and Becky, the Manager. This ineptness, and rudeness, does not make a poor place better.

“Beautiful Sunsets!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Nice boat trip across Lake Eustis. Plenty of dock. Short walk across street. Had a table inside near window for dinner. Food was mediocre. Prices weren't impressive. Dining room wasn't busy, most customers were seated outside. Service was slow in my opinion for amount of people there. The best part of the entire experience was watching the sun set over the lake. Beautiful! I don't think I will go back and I wouldn't recommend it.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

We've had Crazy Gator a couple times and we have come to realize it's really hit or miss. The first time we had chicken salad (no pineapple, thank you) and a burger. The chicken salad sandwhich was great and the burger was decent enough. We went back for the chicken salad and found it totally lacked flavor but made up for it by adding tons of salt. It was bad, to say the least. This time we ordered wings, which were very good. I doubt we will go back because of the hit and miss dinners.

Also, what is the obsession with pineapples at that place? Many of the items are "Hawaiian style" which means they add a pineapple ring. I think it would better without all the extra "Hawaiian" food.

“Crazy Food but bland food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Recently visited Crazy Gators in Eustis with friends who are from Eustis and recommended the place. We sat in a booth and had a great view of the Lake...that was probably about all that was 'great' about our visit.

We ordered chips and salsa as an appetizer. The chips were cold, stale and tasteless. The salsa was tasteless and extremely watery. We sent the chips and salsa back and ordered fried cheese and mushrooms...which were ok but nothing special.

For our entrees we ordered the Chicken salad sandwich and Philly Cheesesteak. The chicken salad was served on a Kaiser bun and unfortunately it was more bread than chicken. The chicken had a huge chunk of gristle in it. The Philly Cheesesteak was ok ...but again nothing out of the ordinary.

Our service was good and the waitress very pleasant.

I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. I would suggest you drive into Leesburg and eat at well known chain restaurant.

“Great fried fish!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

This is always a great place to go for the fried fish!! It's the best around, always hot and fresh. If you can get a booth, you have a nice view of Lake Eustis.
