Visiting the Nav-A-Gator is a great way to entertain friends family and visitors.

From dining in the restaurant to 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.

Nav-A-Gator Desota Marina

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, Peel N Eat Shrimp, 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.

For pet lovers, our outside courtyard/stage area is where you and your furry friend can enjoy an afternoon here in Old Florida.

The Nav-A-Gator is a family friendly place where just like the old days growing up we could sit with the grandparents and parents and kids and enjoy an outing together. Let the Nav-A-Gator be your local get away and visit often. Your hosts, Shauna and Capt Jesse Shows
