Fun but smelly

It was fun feeding the Gators and looking at the exhibits . I felt like it could have been a little cleaner as it did smell gross but we would definitely visit again.

This place was great! My friends and I all enjoyed our food (it was a little on the pricey side though so be prepared) there was a wait, but while you waited you could go to the gift shop, arcade, or to the "gator beach". There was also a nice bar area outside

We had been here before and weren't impressed with the food, so this time we just came for the alligators. The boys, 8 & 9, got to feed the alligators for $3 each- that was neat. We didn't eat here.

I was a first time visitor here with my family and really enjoyed our late lunch here. There was a wait but while you wait you can go look around the place. You can get your picture taken holding a gator, or get your picture taken with a mermaid(if shes out) Play arcade games, or feed the gators. There is... More

We tried to eat at places we couldn't do back home. This was a very neat experience and all of our kids loved it. Ages 1.5-17. They got to feed the gators. The smell around the gators was awful, but considering the swampy water for them, I got over it. Play area for the kids while you wait, gift shop.... More

Visited here with kids they had a blast played till they dropped it was a shame that we got there pretty late so we didn't get to see the gators. But had fun!

My wife and I took 2 grandsons and a friend of their's to Destin Fudpuckers. The atmosphere and alligators were decent for younger children. We ordered 2 fudburgers, I chicken strips and two fried seafood combos. The burgers and chicken strips were good but overpriced. The fried seafood combos were very disappointing. Small order of gumbo but that was more... More

We had never seen alligators before so we thought we'd stop here while we were in Destin. We were gonna eat here but the wait was almost two hours, so we decided to just check out the gators and leave. It was pretty cool. There were so many of them. We looked all over for the albino gator but didn't... More

First time here and the experience was awesome. Our waiter was friendly and the food came out quick. The food there is amazing. This place is huge loved the gator farm and for the price of $1 you can leave your mark on the wall or table that you were there. Would definitely recommend this place to visitors.
