This place is a real EXPERIENCE. The food is better than average(so is the price). It is what it is.....would we go back? yeah, probably. It's definitely great for a vacationing family to have the experience at least once.....it's very stimulating.....kinda fast paced and A LOT to see. It's the kind of experience that you HAVE TO HAVE at least... More

The food was good. It was a weekday, so not a large crowd. We didnt' get to see the alligators due to the summer season just ending. Bummer.

Kids had a great time feeding the gators and taking their picture with a live one. Food was pretty good. None of us liked the alligator gumbo though. The arcade is small, but fun. We will definitely go again!

We had a large party of 11 at a tourist restaurant. I would expect a long wait. What is not acceptable is our waitress, Pepper, spending her time taking care of what I assume was her two kids and her mother.

Fun place to eat. The food was good as well.I'm not sure the food was worth what I paid but it was pretty much par for the area. The souveneir shop was cool as well. Once again kind of high priced,$25 for a Fudpuckers t shirt seemed high,although they are colorful and funny. All in all worth the visit.

Go to see the gators. The food is overpriced and not worth it. Fun atmosphere just skip the food. Also fat daddy's next door is fun.

Long wait BUT amazing drinks and a fun atmosphere to kill the time! Bartender recommend the Voodoo Magic drink and it was soooooo AMAZING! And feeding the gators even kept us grown-ups entertained until time to be seated! The fried pickles were the best we have ever eaten and the parmesan stuffed shrimp was delicious!! Our waitress was so sweet... More
