Loud and Krazie busy, but place was neat with lots to look at, see, and do while waiting. We got seated quicker than expected, my food ( chicken wrap) was average but my husbands fish was awesome.. The burgers looked huge, so bring your appetite with you. Service was rather poor but overall would recommend going just to say you've... More

Went with my family we have a few smaller children in the group who loved the atmosphere. As far as a restaurant the food was average nothing amazing but not bad by any means, just kinda high for what you get. That being said with this kind of place you are paying for the atmosphere the have a alligator pond... More

Ate lunch with the family. Food was ok. Very pricey. Atmosphere was the adventure. Alligators and fun park type of events. Kids loved the arcade.

We got lost twice trying to find our way in and our way out! It was so packed. Excellent place to see, feed and hold the gators! We got a wonderful souvenir: a picture of us family holding a 2 year old gator! Arcade next door is an excellent way to keep us busy while waiting for our table. On... More

Came in from a morning boat rental for lunch and stopped here. Excellent burgers, good selection of beverages. There was a bit of a wait, but more than enough activities to keep one busy. T shirts were a tad pricey, but the food was very good. One of the appetizers was chicken thighs, which were quite good. Worth the trip.

Stopped in for lunch. It was about a 30 minute wait for table, the place was packed on a weekday at 1pm. The food was excellent and service was fast. Tiffany, our waitress was super nice and checked on us a lot, keeping our drinks full. Excellent location.

Food was great. The wait was shorter than we were told. The only reason I didn't give 5 is the service wasn't as good as it should be for the price you pay. That being said, I would gladly eat there again.

We don't tend to be overly demanding of food quality, except when a place has a high reputation and high prices. Fudpuckers seems to have a good reputation and their prices are not low. Fudpuckers is targeted to be a fun place that is obviously targeted at kids (live alligator pit with alligator shows) and young people (lively brightly painted... More
