Busy but worth the wait!

We were looking for a tourist attraction to get souvenirs. This was a great place to go. We got souvenirs, an alligator show, food, and entertainment all in one. The wait was about an hour but it was worth it!

Fudpucker's is a unique experience. We had to wait for awhile, so we went to look at the alligators, looked around in the gift shop, and followed the yellow duck footprints to the bathroom.

I've been here twice years apart and food and service was still great. The nachos were enough for me to share with my husband and 10 year old. My son ordered a kids cheeseburger meal and the burger was too well done for him, but since he was full from our nachos we didn't complain. Kids life the gators and... More

The attraction screamed at us from the roadside to stop and see this place. So like obedient tourists we did. Being a rainy New Year's Eve afternoon, we were surprised to find it nearly empty. Not sure if it was the weather or time of day. Regardless we were seated right away. Our waitress was delightful and knowledgable about the... More

First, it took our order over 45 mins to come out and it was barely warm, we had a total of 6 separate orders, and we were the only ones beside 1 other couple, the bar was closed before 9:00 and the...

Thank you for the feedback - We appreciate the review and hearing about your experience. This definitely sounds like an off night, which is no excuse as we want every one of our guests to be treated exceptionally all the time. Thank you for reaching out to a manager that evening as it is easier to address the same day... More
