More zoo then good food

Food was ok. $44 with tip for 2 burgers, 2 sodas, and a Mac and cheese kids meal. Service was ok and it took forever to get the bill even though they weren't too busy hence the 15% tip instead of 20%. I even asked the bartender to cash me out but she refused stating only our waitress could do... read more

This was a treat for our 18 month old grandson to get out and explore. This is a short excursion for young children or animal lovers. I enjoyed seeing and feeding the alligators. Pearl is an albino alligator and my first knowledge they existed. We did not eat here,

The food was just ok and was WAY overpriced. The kids meals were $7-$8 and drink wasn't included! We gave them our name and was told 25-30 minute wait but 40 minutes later we asked and they had forgotten us! Then the service was awful! It was just an overall bad experience and I will NEVER go back!

Beth, How old are your children? Are they really small? Are they close to being teenagers? I ask this because it will make a difference on the kid meals you ordered. Most moms ask their server before ordering about the serving size so they can order kid meals according to how much they know their children will eat. Usually, one... More

If you have kids you need to go here. They have alligators and the food is on the pricey side, but they have live ALLIGATORS! If you're a kid this place is awesome if you're a adult only order one entree for two it's a lot of food!

Delgiorno, Thanks, for the review. You gotta help us out here. Pricey but too much for one person? What entree did you order made you feel that way? Sometimes, ladies say it's too much and sometimes men say it wasn't enough. We kinda try to hit the middle...like Goldie Locks! LOL! Please, we need your help. Could you please give... More

Service was great, food was great, and a really fun atmosphere... Especially if you have kids. The seafud platter was plenty of food to share with two people. Overall great experience and can't wait to go back.

We are here for lunch and it was very good. The burgers were delicious and large. Could easily be split by two adults. The service was great and we were seated immediately. Prices were about average for a touristy area.

Actually during our family trip to Destin we picked up takeout 2 times. Wings were great also other takeout was variety of seafood, burgers, etc. All were good according to the family. We had a great time showing the grandbaby the gators and playing a few games. Good family environment.

When we arrived the parking lot was full. We were seated almost immediately had quick and friendly service during our visit. We opted for a few of the lower cost items on the menu. Hamburgers for $10.99. The loaded nachos were $13.99. The nachos were easily enough for two normal people. The burgers were excellent. Highly recommend. Perfectly cooked and... More

If you have children this the best place on the beach in my opinion. The alligators are great, the stage for the kids and the bar for the adults. What could be better? It's like a one-stop shop for an evening of fun. We had a birthday party for a 3-year-old and the staff bent over backwards to accommodate all... More

Jeff!! High-five! Your review uplifted the crew, man! Most reviews are used to complain about problems that were never brought to the attention of the managers on duty. When the "Atta boy" and "Atta girl"'s come in it helps morale and we are on fire to make everyone's day. Ironically, you made ours. When the crew told me about your... More
