My kids looked forward to coming here all year. We caught the show this year and it was great. Feeding the and holding the gator is always the favorite with my family. LOVE THIS PLACE!

Gator Beach is a good way to kill a little time while waiting for you table at Fudpuckers. They have a 100 or so alligators in a little exhibit area that you can look at and even feed. My daughter had fun feeding them. There is an albino gator to look at and you can also get your picture taken... More

'The Gator Show' is lame- simple as that. The food would be okay if this were a fast food joint off I 10- but it is overpriced and not even worth half what they charge. It is also a MAD HOUSE on Friday and Saturday- once again- if your kids love alligators- take them, but skip the food unless you... More

The kids had fun.But looking at the ads I think our expectations were set a little to high.It makes you think there will be more interactions with the gators but instead it was like going to the zoo and seeing them in the cage. And I did not expect gator island to be at a restaurant but it is was... More

This place was a good walk through. Alligator show is kindergarten needs a little more to it. And they need to allow more kids to enter or be a part of the show. That's the reason why they came to touch or pet the alligators . Not just one child

The food was over-priced, and didn't taste great. Service was good. Seeing and feeding the Gators is a fun family thing to do, but I'd skip the restaurant next time.

We had a nice time checking out and feeding the gators. We had picture done with our girls who were able to hold, pet, and ask questions about the gator. Staff was friendly but gator feeding show was a bit short.

Took our kids ages 9, 8, and 6 and it was a blast for all of them. This was great entertainment for the price and the food/service was good. Will definitely do again!
