“Great Food, HORRIBLE service! Hire some help, it's summertime!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

first I WOULD RECOMMEND GOING TO FUDPUCKERS IN DESTIN where the alligators are because they are NOT at this location!!
The food was out of this world!! Kids got pizza and I didn't now pizza could taste that good. I ordered a spicy salad (don't remember exact name) and it was delicious!! Husband and others ordered seafood items (i'm allergic) they ate every bite so I would say it was good too. Arcade was small but enough to entertain kids while you wait for food. NOW about the service...we arrived at 6:45 on a Wednesday night (thinking it's wed. they wont be busy) they really weren't busy. We waited 20 mins just for the hostess at which time she SAID she put us on a list then 15 mins go by I ask and she informs me we need a buzzer...WELLL WHY didn't you give me one?? THEN we went through this ordeal of which part of the restaurant to seat us (they have 3 different ones plus a bar). After almost 1hr we FINALLY get seated only to find out they have ONE waiter in our restaurant...poor guy! He did his best to service our table but he was way too busy! 1hr 45 mins later we FINALLY got food. HIRE MORE PEOPLE and this would be an AWESOME place to go!!

“Excellent Service, Great Products”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Since we were staying next door at Destin West Beach and Bay Resort, we chose to rent from Fudpucker's. First we rented waverunners and they were FAST. We had a great time with those so the next day we decided to rent a pontoon boat for 1/2 day. Both experiences could not have been better. The staff was very helpful and extremely friendly. The equipment was in good repair, and most importantly, we had a blast! We'll definitely use them again the next time we visit.

“Smooth parasailing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

We just stumbled upon this new parasailing/ watersports business located right behind Fudpuckers on Hwy 98.
It was very nice to have access to Fudruckers restaurant & facilities while waiting.
Also nice to just walk across boat dock and board your boat ( as opposed to riding a banana boat to get to your boat waiting for you in the middle of the ocean).
The staff super friendly and helpful. Explained everything along the way.Smooth landing and takeoff.
Then afterwards just popped into Fudruckers for their special if the day, pork tacos. It just doesn't get any better than this!
Highly recommend this one...especially if you want to avoid crowds/ traffic.
