R.J. Gator’s is all about good times and good food in a festive family-friendly atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re embarking on an Everglades adventure. All that’s missing are the air boats and the mangroves.

Rockin’ and Jammin’ History

Today, the restaurant has evolved into two locations in The Villages and now the newest addition in Bradenton, Florida and continues to expand throughout the Southeast at a rapid rate.

Locals and visitors alike are fond of the family-friendly hometown grill and bar with Florida flair. Because of its unique menu and exciting atmosphere, R.J. Gator’s has become the place that locals take their out-of-town friends. Today, R.J. Gator’s is known for Florida signature foods like alligator tail, Havana banana chicken with black beans and rice, handmade coconut shrimp with sweet plantains and the fresh catch of the day. The restaurant also features a large selection of fresh salads, steaks, half-pound burgers and hot sandwich platters.
