You already know that for the Best Seafood Restaurant in Destin you’ll want to head to Fudpucker’s Beachside Bar & Grill.

But did you know that Fudpucker’s is also the Best Restaurant in Destin for Gator? Make sure you try their Gator Tail À la Fud (served with a sweet chili pepper sauce) or their Gator Gumbo! In fact, you’ll probably want to try both!  Or try their combo platters which feature other favorite along with gator.

Shrimp, Chicken, Alligator Combo Platter

Looking for the right drink to pair with your gator? You’re going to need Fudpucker’s Gator Bomb! The ultimate “pick-me-up” cocktail, this drink leaps at you in an explosion of Red Bull, Blue Curacao and Smirnoff Citrus Vodka. Crikey!


In business for more than 35 years Fudpucker’s still serves all the traditional seafood you’re craving and a whole lot more. A shrimp-lover’s dream, their selection of shrimp entrées are amazing! No matter how you like it (chargrilled, blackened or fried) you’ll find just what you are looking for.


Try the Best Coconut Shrimp on the Emerald Coast or the customer-favorite Fried Shrimp (made with their Secret Breading).


You can also choose from Shrimp Scampi (broiled in butter with garlic and wine then dusted with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese) or the Stuffed Shrimp Parmesan (lots of fresh shrimp loaded with crabmeat stuffing and topped with their signature white Parmesan cheese sauce, then broiled with butter, garlic and secret seasonings.


If you love Bacon and Shrimp (and who doesn’t?), you’ll want to have their Bacon Wrapped Gulf Stuffed Shrimp (with crabmeat stuffing, wrapped in bacon, broiled and served with a spicy brown sugar glaze).


Also available are Popcorn Shrimp, Shrimp Tacos or a Shrimp Pucker (sandwich) as well as the option to add shrimp (bacon-wrapped, coconut, scampi or fried) to any of our entrées.


Fudpucker’s best selling entrée, the Fried Seafud Platter, includes shrimp, fried fish, crab balls and our World Famous Alligator Gumbo (which also includes fresh fish and shrimp). And it’s available broiled. 


Or get your gator fill with the Shrimp, Chicken & Alligator Combo. It features fried alligator tail, homemade chicken fingers (everyone loves these) and fried shrimp.


There’s something for everyone! Looking for something else? Be sure to try our burgers, chicken, our new Fudbowls or salads! And our appetizers and munchies are meals in themselves – just save room for your dinner!
