Kids love the arcade and alligators, food average

The kids love the arcade, which is good because it always seems like a lot longer wait than should be necessary for the crowd size. Both nights we ate here, we had a wait that seemed unnecessary. The food is decent and their is good variety. The waitstaff seems very overworked, but still did a... read more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

We were apprehensive to come here because others had stated the food was not good. We were pleasantly surprised with tenet juicy chicken tenders and flavorful burgers. Prices were comparable to other places in the area and my child was an angel while eating to get to play the games after. We're very glad we came.

This is a great place to keep the kids intertained & they do have a nightlife the later it gets at night. Sometimes they have bands or just hit the arcade. The place is made mostly out of wood so it just has a feel of a big club house for kids. I would have rated it higher if the... More

Kimberly, you are so kind! Thank you, for appreciating our staff and their hardwork. The notion, "It takes one to know one" must be true. Gotta be a hard-worker in order to spot other hard-workers. :) Again, thanks for the cool review. Do you remember the gator handler 's (college student) name? I'd like to forward the kudos to their... More

We ate here on the last night of our recent trip. When we arrived, we were told the wait for a table would be an hour or so. Not in a hurry, we decided to wait. My husband, our 13 year old, and myself had a blast playing in the arcade while we waited. We didn't even notice the time... More

My family visited this restaurant last week. It was so nice to be able to send the kids to the arcade while the adults enjoying their drinks and meals. We had a party of about 15 and we were seated promptly in the tiki bar type of area. There was a great view of the sunset over the water. Our... More

The fried pickles were so good! Same with their French fries. The food was great! I didn't like the tables though. They were kind of uncomfortabld and it was easy to fall off. My mom did 😂

We ate here Mon 4/6 with the softball team after their games. The staff was ready for us and we had great service. We sat in the back with a wonderful view of the Ocean, it was great. The team took pictures while we waited for the food. Everything was prepared well, we only heard good comments on the food... More

This was my first time at this location and I wasn't very impressed. I like the Destin location a whole lot better. The kids loved the arcade and the food was just ok. May or may not return on future visits.

Tourist restaurant for sure. My kids loved the arcade and it gave my wife and I some time to have some adult conversation.
