We had been here before with the kids and grandkids, but this was our first time with just the two of us. Neither of us was starved, so I decided to go with soup and a dinner salad and my wife passed on the soup and got two appetizers. This was the first time we had been there on a... More

The customer service here was very inviting. I came at a lunch time so it was pretty slow. The manager was very friendly. The gator area they have is also one of a kind. The food was good and reasonably priced. I would go there again!! Very fun and welcoming.

Atmosphere is really nice. They have alligators you can see. Food was really greasy and the seafood was not too yummy. Service though was wonderful.

Service was good; food is bleh. The whole place just seems tired. The alligators look sad and everything is faded out, and the outdoor equipment and bar is not in use and just hanging out looking broken and sad... I would think they could put some kind of cover over it since everyone walks by it to go to everything...... More

The food was absolutely horrible. First, the "crab balls" had little to no seasoning. The food was very bland. The waiter obviously did not want to be bothered that much with a party of 2 when he was waiting other tables of 12-15. They should have seated us in a section with not so large parties. I asked for a... More

If you have kids, you have to go. I wouldn't be looking for the best seafood in Destin, but good variety and reasonable prices of you look around the menu. Don't miss the gators! Get to see them, hold them, and get a picture with one! Always a kids favorite. Can checkout Fat Daddy's arcade next door as well.

My wife and I enjoyed the marvelous catfish dinners. These were by far the best catfish dinners we have ever had. We have also had the Mahi-Mahi sandwiches for lunch and they were outstanding. Also the price was right. The service and friendliness of the staff were exemplary. This is our favorite restaurant in Destin. Bill and Jackie, Ohio

Fudpucker's is a must on our trips to Destin. The place is awesome, although the food isn't exceptional. The food isn't bad, just nothing special. The kids love going, though. They love the playground and feeding the alligators. It's also a tradition for us to take a family picture holding a gator. We've always had good service. The staff is... More
