Gator's is an All-American, everything-Sunshine-State, Parrothead kind of joint. Like an alligator hunting lodge meets modern Florida retreat. You'll feel most at home if you're a University of Florida grad - obviously; almost as comfy if you're a USF Bull. If you're a Seminole or Hurricane fan, not so much. Their Gators preference is highlighted by the Orange and Blue specialty cocktail, which includes OJ and Curacao. he food's good and there's an extensive menu of surf and turf, salads, soups and sandwiches. There's a quirky selection of appetizers, called "Gatorizers."
