Service was good, nice friendly atmosphere. The live gator exhibit was pretty neat to see, and their gator tail appetizer was pretty good for someone who has never eaten gator before. The rest of the food was just ok. Nothing great or anything that makes my mouth water thinking about. I would recommend to try for yourself before listening to... More

Have to be honest, my son waits tables here during the summer season. We went to Destin to visit him and we stopped for drinks. Had the crab balls and crab claws. Both were fantastic and $2.00 pints all day didn't hurt either. They have a albino gator along with smaller ones in a pool area. Great beer can collection... More

First off I want to start out by saying the color in this joint looks like it came out of the backside of a unicorn that just ate a bad batch of skittles. I am very jealous of the alligators because without a doubt they are being served the best food this place has to offer. I have no doubt... More

Nice atmosphere, especially with the gators for the kids outside, but much of the food is average, with the exception of the burgers. During our visit, my veggie pasta was good, my daughter's burger was very good, but the fried fish sandwiches the others had were fair at best, and my wife's ribs were poor. So bottom line, if you're... More

I really can not complain about anything with fudpuckers. Every one in our party loved the food and i think everyone came home with extra food becasue the serving were bigger that expected. It was higher priced than i was used to but really compareable to the other resturaunts in town.

Get there early so you don't have to wait. Food, drinks and service was great. Make sure you try out the bucket drink, it is really good. After we ate we stayed to feed the gators and watch the show.

This was the 2nd time we have eaten at this restaurant - and probably the last. Service was extremely slow. At basically a sandwich and fries place, we had to wait 45 minutes to get our food. The fish was cold, mushy, and tasted like it had been fried in extremely old cooking oil. When we complained, we got a... More

We come to Destin every 1 to 2 months and have been to almost every restaurant here. Our last trip we had small grand kids, 2 and 6. Took them to Fud's as we thought they would enjoy gators. When we were seated, there was a sign that read something like "we supply only 3 crayons as there are expensive.... More

Very nice restaurant with good family atmosphere. Lots of fun things to do while waiting to be seated like feed the alligators or look through their large gift shop. Good service and good burgers!

We had a waitress named Jessie she was very very nice. Literally all of the staff was so friendly it was very refreshing. Awesome little gift shop and we fed the Gators for only 3$. Food plates were HUGE. Fried pickles rocked. No complaints.
