Visiting the Nav-A-Gator is a great way to entertain friends family and visitors. From dining in the restaurant to strolling through the old museum with Peace River fossils dating back hundreds of thousands of years, picking up a real gator souvenir in the gift shop or having a snack of real gator meat, this will all be a true Florida experience. Our restaurant offers gator bites which are served with Nav-A-Gator sauce. Another favorite food is our ’hearts of palm’ also called ‘swamp cabbage’. This is harvested from Florida’s state tree, the Cabbage Palm or Sable Palm. Other fare such as real Grouper, fish and chips, Cod, shrimp, big thick juicy burgers and tasty cooked to order special cut steaks made over our chargrill. Smoked fish dip, jalapeño poppers and for dessert is real key lime pie – a Florida favorite. On certain days we have live entertainment and this tropical music will get your foot tapping and hands clapping as you sip a cool drink from our fully stocked bar. Specialty local beers brewed for the discriminating taste as well as domestic are available. We offer Pepsi products as well as IBC root beer.
