It's always a fun time for the kids. We didn't eat here, learned our lesson a few years ago. We just go in through fat daddy's arcade and miss restaurant completely. It's fun for a quick outing, 30 minutes and you have seen it all. But it's free and the kids love it.

To begin, my wife and I would like to give a shout out to our wonderful charismatic waiter, Michael. He was very polite, helpful, and sets the tone for a great dining experience. We took an early dinner, more like a late lunch, but the food quality was still high. The wang bang shrimp, which we shared as an appetizer,... More

The kids love this place. Feed live gators, take pictures with gators and look at the albino gator. Plus they have an arcade. This helps past the time since dinner wait is usually 45 mins - 1 hour. Call ahead seating would have been nice. Overall, dinner was good.

Just ate here today and glad we ignored the bad reviews. The hot crab dip was the best I had while in the area. The Nachos were fabulous too! I had the stuffed shrimp parmesean and it was delicious! We loved feeding the gators. FUN stop!

The food was ok. Nothing to write home about. Our server was friendly. Made good recommendations on food and drinks. Portions were plenty for 2 people share.

We went here for our 2 year old grandbabies' birthday because it had been recommended as a great kid friendly place. There were 8 of us and we were promptly seated as it was not very crowded. Then it took FOREVER for anyone to take our order. The babies had had a long day so were getting fussy. No one... More

We take exception with your review because everything you say is untrue. While Fudpucker’s is “Kid Friendly” we also have a responsibility to other customers whose dining experience is grossly affected by screaming children. Your child was screaming for over 20 minutes, but what caused our manager to suggest you take the child outside to calm the situation was when... More

Most entertaining place to eat great food. It was a little pricey, where else can you eat and feed alligators at the same time. Our kids really loved it!
