Fun place to stop with kids

Check out the gators, the stores, and the arcade while waiting for your table. The shrimp boil was soooooooo good. Fried platter was HUGE and heavy so share it. Great atmosphere and friendly servers! Will definitely be back!!!

Totally kid and youth friendly. Wouldn't bother if you don't have some kids with you. Wasn't bad, just so many other options. Very fun vibe. Again, food not bad at all, just secondary to the atmosphere and other activities: gators, arcade, writing on the tables, walls etc, stage, music...

Great kids activities, gator island and feeding gators was fun. Food was decent for the price, I ate gator for the first time and thought it was good. Service was average. Place felt a bit crowded and dark but was okay for our family of 5. Unique dining experience!

My guests, 5 & 6 yr. old, got their picture taken holding a small gator with it's mouth wrapped shut (it costs extra). It was a highlight of their trip! They danced on stage with employees that were dancing and were able to use their bound-up energy from their flight to Destin.

Staff were friendly and attentive. Food was very average and it was one of the most expensive places we ate. You do get to see some alligators while your there but it's all a bit tacky.

Great, fun place...write your name on the wall! Food was ok, but the atmosphere made up for that! There area alligators right outside sunning themselves, you can feed them if you want. Cute gift shop, a little pricey, but still cute. Worth a stop.

We enjoyed feeding the gators. After, we decided to get some apps so we got the hush puppies and fried pickles. The hush puppies were dry and the pickles were to much pickle and too little batter.
