Not the place we would normally eat but next door to our hotel and we wanted to have drinks and not drive. Noisy typical family vacation eating place, poor and slow service, average food and expensive for what you get. For us never again, for families probably a good place as many things for kids to do.

We knew it was a tourist trap when we went but we thought there must be a reason why. We couldn't find one though. My daughter and I thought The food was just okay for the prices. My husband did enjoy his stuff shrimp. I glad we did not have to wait as it would not have been worth it.

This is a very FUN place to visit for a small or large group. When we bowl late this is one of the few places that is open late. There is a very nice variety of food and there are so many tvs that you can control the speaker at your table for the specific program you want to focus... More

We went with friends for dinner because they had alligator on the menu. We ordered the fried cheese curds and they were very good. The ceasar salad was also good. The problems we had were with the steaks... my recommendation is avoid them. We ordered medium rare and apparently they have no idea how to grill a steak properly. The... More

My fiance, our 4 year old, and I were visiting Destin and decided to give this place a try despite the bad reviews we had read. I always believe that you cannot please everyone so we gave it a shot. After our experience I have to say the bad reviews are spot on! My fiance and I both ordered hamburgers.... More

Go early, especially on weekends! It's a busy place! We were a little hesitant about ordering a steak but the steak was outstanding! There are alligators in a pond as you enter for kids to view and feed with fishing poles. The walls are very 'busy' with graffiti. They have a store inside where you can purchaser T-shirts and other... More

Went there with the entire family for our first trip! The kids loved holding an alligator. The staff was friendly. We were not impressed with the food. We were told the crab dip was a 'must'..wish we hadn't spent the money 👎🏼 Very pricey for the quality of food. Most likely will not be back.
