Destin Restaurant

Fudpucker’s Destin Restaurant offers a dining experience like no other! We feature huge portions of expertly prepared and homemade seafood, chicken and alligator dishes as well as amazing burgers.  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 while interacting with “The Fudnominals” our incredible family entertainers. Your kids can dance and play games with dancers from local high schools and colleges who are experts in providing true Family Fun.

On nights that the dancers are off you will be delighted by our star performer “Sierra” – a true expert in showing you and your family a great time.

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 find everything from an incredible selection of “World Famous T-Shirts” and other name brand items such as hats, cups and a variety of sauces and spices to amazing gift items from around the world.

Check out our menu for signature “homemade” dishes such as Hot Crab Dip, Fried  Dill Pickles, Gator Tail a la Fud, Stuffed Shrimp Parmesan, and hearty, mouth-watering Fudburgers.  It is easy to see why Fudpucker’s has been the Best Restaurant in Destin since 1982!

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 Henna Tattoo pavillion on the deck featuring amazing designs. 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 in front of 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 and tour our Gator Beach Museum.  Stop by and see for yourself why Gator Beach is the “World’s Greatest Alligator Park”.

Fudpucker’s has been serving families since 1982. 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 1982, Fudpucker’s in Destin accepts all major credit cards. During the tourist season you can beat the wait by coming for lunch or an early dinner (before 5:00 p.m.).  You can also make a reservation subject to certain seasonal restrictions.
