They're very accommodating of big groups and groups with children. There's a playground area for kids while you wait and even an area to feed live gators. But the food is just okay, nothing special. Our server was great though!

This is one of those places you only like to go just to say you went. In our opinion the food isn't all that great and there's always a long wait to get a table. They do offer great tshirts and that's another reason we like to go here.

Went to dinner and was quite an interesting place. Live gators, gift shop and lots of things on the walls to look at. Atmosphere was fun and not stuffy. The staff was super friendly and service was excellent . A little pricy but worth it. I'd go again

We came for lunch while in Destin and lunch seems a good time to go seeing that most people are at the beach. Be prepares to climb stairs to be seated and I'm not sure what happens if someone in your party can't climb stairs. Our server seemed less than enthused to be there but everyone has a bad say...

So, it was not busy on a Monday afternoon in Destin - so we thought so many people talk about Fudpucker's that we will go for lunch. We were seated quickly, but then nearly 10 minutes before we received 3 iced teas and 1 sprite. Then we ordered - grilled fish for me, crab cake dinner for my wife and... More

There was plenty to do here to be a restaurant! The kids loved the playground while we waited for our table. Then they got to feed live alligators with a long pole plus watch an alligator show hosted by someone that told lots of interesting facts. Then the food was so good! I loved the pineapple coleslaw!! Then there was... More

The food and service were average and nothing to write home about. The atmosphere was cool; the music, the signatures on the walls and the gators out front were neat. We went so we could say we'd been but probably won't go back.

WE LOVED THIS RESTAURANT! We really enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere is just wonderful. Puts you in a good mood just being there. The gift shop was a big hit with the kids. Then we went outside for pictures with the gators and fed them. Great time! Kids really enjoyed it.
