Didn't really enjoy the atmosphere. A touristy place. Overcrowded with the noon drinking crowd. Did have a good cobia sandwich. Food was decent - just didn't care for the physical place. Prices were higher than anticipated. Definitely not a bang for your buck kind of place.

I'm from Missouri and my family always goes to Destin for vacations. When it came time for my honeymoon we chose Destin again. This was my second time at Fudpuckers. I tried gator for the first time (YUM). There was quite a wait so we sat at the bar. We were talking and laughing with the bartender the whole time.... More

We were in Destin with so many others to enjoy the beach, Silver Sands Premium Outlet and Destin Commons. It had proven to be a long day, and one of the people we were with suggested Fudpuckers. It looked crazy and fun, and might be a nice diversion after trudging after the ladies whilst they shopped. This is a large... More

The food isn't gourmet but that's not why you go there. Fun for the kids, a good menu for young families, and an alligator show. Not to mention the arcade next door. Everyone had a great time.

The restaurant has great amenities, like the alligator exhibit and Fat Daddy's arcade next door; however, my husband and I did not have a good experience with the food. The Stuffed Shrimp Parmesan was very mushy and was not flavored well. I also got broccoli as side, which tasted like soap, and a salad that had wilted and brown lettuce.... More

This was our 2nd visit to this restaurant and nothing had changed....Took forever to be seated (1 1/2 hours), but we did walk around and fed the alligators and went to shop while waiting....even after doing that we still were waiting. I wanted to go, but the kids wanted to stay. We were finally seating and the server was very... More

Food is horrible. We had coconut shrimp and fried shrimp. I could of went to Walmart and bought them and saved a lot of money. Just go buy the T-shirt and eat somewhere else.

I visited Fudpuckers with my husband and 3 kids. The food was awful! We ordered the ribs and they were disgusting! They were nothing but fat and full of tendons. We complained to our waitress, and only got an "I'm sorry." The restrooms were disgusting and the food was WAY overpriced. We left wishing we had gone somewhere else. Go... More

Food is nothing to write home about, just average and it is pretty pricey!! $18 for some chicken fingers. This has been our most expensive meal & we've gone to some nice places.
