The menu, heavily influenced by southwestern and creole dishes, includes crawfish etouffee ($9.99), chicken fajitas ($10.99), half-pound bayou burgers ($5.99), and bayou baby-back ribs ($10.99–$16.99), as well as Beringer wines, specialty cocktails, and beers such as Corona and Blue Moon.
Strings of colored lights twinkle from the rafters of Gator Jake's, where walls of retro neon and pressed-metal signs lend the dining room a vivacious vibe. The menu brings creole and southwestern perspectives to the table, providing etouffees, steak-fajita subs, and barbecue chicken monterey to complement a glass of Beringer wine, a specialty cocktail, or a beer called Guinness, Killian's, or Corona. Wall-mounted flat-screen televisions broadcast major sporting events as the sounds of clacking pool balls, whirring darts, and songs from the jukebox and periodic live entertainment fill the air. Open until 2 a.m., Gator Jake's—which took third place in the 2011 Detroit A-List's race for Best Sports Bar—welcomes patrons to stay for a late-night birthday party or celebrate the opening of a foreign stock exchange far, far away.
