Took an out of town friend to take a pic with a baby alligator. Bright obnoxious restaurant on 98. The restaurant is a maze of stairs and levels. Waitress came and asked if we wanted something to drink, we said water, she never came back. The decor verges on dirty and kitschy with the writing on every surface. You can... More

Loved feeding the alligators, getting kids picture holding an alligator. Kids loved it and wanted more. We went early and avoiding the line developing we we left around6:30. Fun for all and worth the alligator experience.

We visited on late on a Saturday afternoon. As they were very busy, we were told it would be an hour wait, but were seated in about 30 minutes. My wife and I shared the Fried Seafood Combo. The fried fish and shrimp were good, but the crab balls were bland. The dinner included a salad, cup of delicious gumbo,... More

The place grabs your attention as you walk in with the unique atmosphere. They actually let customers sign everything, pretty cool seeing where people are from. We went around 5:30ish and was seated right away. The servers are great with attitudes to match, and most importantly, he actually carried on conversations with our girls, which made them feel important, Awesome... More

If you have kids this is a fun place to go! There is entertainment galore while you wait (which can be a long time so I suggest that you call ahead). Feed the gators, take a pic with one, play in the connected arcade (fee for all of these activities of course), or dance on the stage with a hula... More

My family and I decided to eat dinner here one night while vacationing in the area. We arrived at 4 pm and still had an hour wait. There are many things to do while you wait. We purchased an overpriced t-shirt from the gift shop, and my children fed the alligators. We should have ended the experience there. The food... More

We didn't go here last year, because the previous time wasn't very good. This time was different. We had a lot more fun, and the food and service was much better. As usual, there was a waiting time--this was short though since we went in the afternoon. We sat in the bar area and had a drink and listened to... More

We visited this restaurant last week. I was concerned that the wait would be long but it only took about 20 mins to get a table. Our waitress was Jordan B. She was excellent. My daughter has food allergies and she went out of her way to check on several options for my daughter to eat. Our food came out... More

Great place to take the kids! Alligator pond, playground, hula hoops on the stage for the kids to try, face painting, arcade games, gift shop and good food. They also do teen nights. If you are planning a trip to Destin, this should be on your list...something for everyone! The staff was friendly, despite being very busy. Our server, Josh,... More

We came back to Fudpuckers after three years. What a disappointment !! The whole family concept is still great, but after waiting for two hours we got seated and served the food. All the food tasted bad, even the "easy" food like chicken wings, nachos and rice failed. There must have been something wrong in the kitchen because out of... More
