The grill was cozy and convenient ... but the food nothing to write home about. Gator meat is tough and certainly not worth eating unless novelty is your primary objective. Other local options offer more interesting options.

We love going to this little gem for lunch every time we go down to Homestead!! Best gator bites we've ever had! Nicely seasoned too!! There is a great big tiki hut to sit under and enjoy the meal outside as well. Can't wait to go back!!!

Stopped in after visiting Everglades Alligator Farm. Wanted to try alligator that wasn't fried. Had grilled alligator bites and conch fritters. Excellent and inexpensive. Couldn't resist the sign; "You've just seen them, now taste them!"

Interesting stop for lunch. Beyond the intrigue of trying gator meat, not much to talk about. Meat was quite tough and not that good. Looks like a tourist stop, which I tend to avoid.

Food was very tasty and good portions. Enjoyed conch chowder which was spicy for me, but I am a wimp when it comes to spices. I took off one due to prices. Expensive for out door seating and walk up order window.

We found this place on TripAdvisor and thought we'd try it for lunch. Off the beaten path but not far at all. It's so cute - you order inside and then go sit outside at picnic tables to eat. We shared an order of Gator Bites (first time having alligator) and Mahi Tacos. The gator bites are very tasty. They... More

I went to Gator Grill for lunch. I ordered the Gator sandwich because I had never tasted alligator meat before. The sandwich looked good and tasted very good. If I would live closer I would have come again.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed an amazing burger and some alligator bites here. Wonderful! It's small, quaint, and just perfect for a South Florida lunch place. Seating is outside on picnic tables or inside along a bar top looking out. The food is homemade right on a flattop grill in front of you. It reminded me of the types of... More

We stumbled into the restaurant during our day in the Everglades. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the fish sandwich. Both were excellent! The cilantro sauce was incredible. The owner proudly told me how she had just made the sauces herself. One of the best meals wet had in south Florida.

Gator Grill is one of the few places close to the Everglades National Park where you can grab lunch. It's not very large and everything is cooked to order so if you're really hungry when you arrive and there's a crowd, grab a snack. The grill is actually in a small converted store. You order inside and seating is in... More
