Destin Restaurant


Fudpucker’s Destin restaurant offers a dining experience like no other! With eight different dining rooms and over 400 seats, we can accommodate small and large parties alike.  Every evening during the Spring and Summer months you can enjoy a cold drink outside on the deck of “Club Key West” while listening to the best local musicians on the Gulf Coast.  For the shopping enthusiast, there is our gift shop, the “Fudpucker Trading Company”, a uniquely Fudpuckish experience that is a “must do” when visiting Destin.  You will also be thrilled with Gator Beach, our FREE Alligator Exhibit featuring “Pearl” one of the few Albino Alligators in the world. Check out our menu for signature dishes such as hot crab dip, fried pickles, gator tail a la fud, stuffed shrimp parmesan, and hearty, mouth-watering burgers, and see why Fudpuckers has been a favorite Destin restaurant since 1983!

For families who visit Fudpucker’s Destin restaurant, there are a bunch of things for the kids to do. For the little “Fudsters”, there’s a large playground right next to the deck. There is also a Game Room on the deck featuring cool video games. Even with all that, most kids will want to go down to Fudpucker’s Gator Beach to see the live alligators that live in the pond underneath the building. In addition to seeing alligators up close, kids can get their picture taken holding a live gator or feed them with specially prepared gator food provided by Fudpucker’s.   During the tourist season you can catch a FREE gator show performed by one of our talented gator handlers.

Fudpucker’s has been serving families since 1983. We can proudly say that many children of our customers in the early years have grown up and now bring their kids to Fudpucker’s.  In addition to all of the fun things to do before dinner, Fudpucker’s has a special “Kids Korner” menu designed especially for children twelve and under.  Of course, in addition to some great food, the kids menu has games and puzzles to entertain them while their food is being prepared.  And when the meal is served, there’s a little FREE toy to take home as a souvenir.  With all that, it’s no wonder that Fudpucker’s is the most popular eatery on the Gulf coast for families!

Serving up lunch, dinner, snacks and libations since 1989, Fudpucker’s in Destin accepts all major credit cards. Since we don’t take reservations, during the tourist season you can beat the wait by coming for lunch or an early dinner (before 5:00 p.m.).

We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
