  • look at the alligators for free, don't eat there

    i wouldn't recommend this place to eat, i would go and look around outside, then leave. the food wasn't good we had the hamburgers and it was bad, service was bad.

  • Fried Fiasco

    My husband and I stopped here because the place looked fun. However, even though there is a great atmosphere with the alligators; the service and the food was horrible. We had to search out our waiter just to get drink and order. Then when we got our food my ""fish"" sandwich was nothing more than strips of batter and my husbands chicken sandwich did not even fill the hamburger bun and it was dry. In the end I ended up asking to send my fish sandwich back. At that point the manager argued with me about not wanting the sandwich. My husband and I travel around the world and this is the second worst food and service we have ever had. I believe that they must not have many repeats and most of the people there are just tourists. Please do not waste your money.

  • Alright, but overhyped

    We had an hour wait upon arrival at 6pm on a weeknight. Poor souls after us were being told of waits over two hours long to get in. The outside and atmosphere was very gimmicky and had a puton feeling to it. Service was so-so, our waiter appeared to take our order, deliver our food, and take the check. We had to search someone out to refill drinks. As far as food goes if you have ever been to a Red Lobster you have not only experienced food that tastes the same as FudPucker's but also been to a restaraunt with a much larger menu.

    The only reason I give this over a 5 is because my wife thought the alligators were cute.

  • A great time on spring Break

    We had driven to destin for the weekend, and we needed something to do at night, so we checked this place out and loved it!! at 10:00 on a friday night all the drinks became $2.00! they had a great live band and a dj, we were dancing , and they have late night sushi.
    it was very neat overall, i thought i was a great place!

  • Family Fun

    FudPuckers is a great place for tourists. It has been around FOREVER...since I was a kid...and has always been THE place to take visitors to the area. It's fun and the food is pretty good and inexpensive. It is a perfect place for kids. They also have live entertainment out on the patio during the season...not to mention good drinks! If you go, you definately have a good burger or fish meal and fun at the same time.
