I had their "Sea Fud Platter", which includes several seafood items and is plentiful in quantity. My wife had the Coconut shrimp and enjoyed it. Our server was "Ala" and she did a superb job of taking care of us. Thank you Ala!

We split the grouper sandwich which was yummy. The fries were not that great. Let us try some crab dip which was ok. I thought it was a little overpriced for so so food. Server was nice.

Went with a party of 5, to include an 8 and 10 year old. Not one person was happy with what they got, to include something simple like a burger or mac n cheese. The only good thing I can say is our server was attentive and was able to quickly correct the few mistakes that were made by the... More

Love this place. Good food and Margaritas. Best place to feed the Alligators. Just wish the gift shop was more people friendly.

Thank you for the review! We appreciate the feedback - If you could elaborate on what you mean by more "people friendly" we would greatly appreciate it. Do you mean the staff working or the layout? Any additional info would help. Thank you! More

We ate good food, and even tried fried alligator. We took our large party of 19 people and were quickly seated in the same area. They had no problem with our orders and the kids loved seeing the live alligators while we waited. This place has a great atmosphere for entertainment and great food. We will go again.

On an early afternoon in February we made a U turn into Fudpucker's empty parking lot. The staff was not very busy, but they were friendly and sweet. The drinks sneak up on you and will have you feeling GOOD! We ordered fish and it was fresh and delicious. Even the Gator bites were good. Real Gator tail!!!

If you are a burger buff this is the place. Try the Alligator bites. You also get to feed the Alligators too. I hope those aren't the one that I just ate. 😉

It's a cool spot to go, they have live alligators you can feed. And before or after feeding them you can eat them. I ordered alligator gumbo it was an interesting flavor and my husband ordered alligator tail also very interesting. It's a lively atmosphere and looks like they have lots to do here. We came at night in the... More
