We stopped in to try the Gator tail it was good never had it before. The food was a little pricey but most things in a tourist town are. Me and the grandkids fed the alligators and it was a blast. If your in the area give them a try. Next time we go to Destin we will stop in... More

We've been to Fudpuckers several times. But this time the food wasn't good at all! The food was below average. We ordered the cheese curds as an appetizer and they were good. For dinner we had the fried shrimp wrap, cheese burger with sloppy fries, kids mac n cheese, and chicken breast platter. The burger was not good and the... More

We enjoyed this place. Something for everyone (gators, arcade, giftshop, food), but it is not on the beach like the name implies. Food was good and servings generous. Service was outstanding!

Wasn't sure what to expect when arriving at Fudpuckers but that all changed when Heather my server was warm outgoing and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks not only was her friendliness outstanding but the food as well. Would definitely go back and would recommend Fudpuckers to anyone.Thanks Heather for great service

I had crab cakes which were good but my kids didn't have excellent dishes. Popcorn shrimp and chicken tenders. Paneed Chicken seemed pre prepared and for $25 we expected fresh food! The gators were cool. We are from MI. We had a coupon that gave a free crab dip but only before 4 pm. The manager came over and wouldn't... More

Trish - We are disappointed to hear about your experience with us. Honoring coupons is manager discretion, and I will follow up with the staff on how it was handled. Our food is freshly prepared, so I would be interested to know more about how the Paneed Chicken appeared to be pre-prepared so we could look into that. We do... More

We came to Destin on our staycation and decided to eat here. We've lived here 7 years and have never been. Jen our server was absolutely amazing. She made sure our kids were taken care of and our drinks were never below half. We will be coming back asap.

My husband enjoyed his coconut shrimp. The shrimp wrap I got was more average as were the fries. The shrimp were not deveined which always grosses... More

The staff was great and accommodating, service was great. Food was typical restaurant food, was hoping for something different. Had gator burger was good. Nachos were huge, but lacked meat! Nice shop inside, a must checkout when waiting for a table.

We ate here twice on our recent vacation and the food was fantastic. Best macaroni and cheese we have ever had. Popcorn shrimp was great. Live alligators are fun to see. Would have given five stars but both nights the AC was cranked up and it was cold. The second time we ate there our appetizer never arrived before our... More
