“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Staying at Destin West right beside Fudpucker's on the Island, so easy walk over. I have been to Fudpucker's in Destin several times and consistently felt the food was just average and the draw was mainly the Gators and general hoopla...the Gators are on order I understand for the Fort Walton location, but have not yet arrived. I will say the staff here is very friendly, service is attentive, and the food definitely beats the Destin location at present. They have an Oyster Bar coming and a nice view, beer on tap and plenty of drink options...arcade downstairs with lots of action for the kids, plenty of stuff to spend money on. Overall, I was impressed beyond expectations with the food quality and portion sizes are great. I hope they keep up the good work. There is plenty of room, loud and lively.

“Best Burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

By far, and I know what I'm talking about, I had the best burger I have ever had!!! Nate was our outstanding server and Tony, the Manager, was kind enough to give me some souvenir's to take home!!! A fun place with a nice view of the water.

“Value and taste were great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

We had the Natural Nachos. Very fresh tasting although towards the bottom the cheese was cold. Also had the Veggie Pizza, there is better pizza around town, but again the ingredients were fresh. Service was great. DJ Vladi was playing, lots of 80's hits.

“Best fish sandwich & Service we had all trip..........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Yesterday was our last day of vacation in Destin/Fort Walton Beach and the guys decided that they wanted to try somewhere that we have never been. We had drove by Fudpuckers a few times during our week here and finally decided it was time to stop by. As we were walking in we were greeted by a really friendly women carring a purse and she introduced us to the hostess and we were brought upstairs to a colorful and vibrant restaraunt. Greeted by a few of the staff on our way to our table as well. After sitting down for alittle less then 1 minute, our waitress Cat ( which was the same person that greeted us as she was arriving at the same time we were) introduced her self and helped us through the big newspaper menu they had and about all the specials. The little appetizers were a good start for all of us but the fish sandwiches that 5 out of 6 of us ordered were awesome. This spot is where everyone needs to go to have a wonderful experience with Ms. Cat and an awesome fish sandwich. Spread the word to all your friends just like I will..

“Nice Sports Bar & Grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

We all had burgers, and they were great! Our server was very friendly quick.
They are really two restaurants in one. The upstairs is more traditional style, while the downstairs is a sports grill.
