Fudpucker’s has had a GREAT Summer thanks to Florida being fully open for business.  We had more visitors this year than ever before and many of them had never been to Destin before. 

These new visitors will likely return in the future to enjoy the incredible beaches and amazing attractions our area has to offer and that bodes well for the future.  THANK YOU for making Fudpucker’s part of your visit to Destin, Florida.

Because of your support we had great success with every element of our entertainment business.  Teen Night was a BIG success this Summer and our “up close and personal” Gator Experience was sold out for most of the busy months. 

Gator Beach “The World’s Greatest Alligator Park” also set records in part because of expanded exhibits and show times. 

Our family friendly interactive dance show featuring the STARS Dance Team from Fort Walton Beach High School was well received and provided great entertainment for familiesd uring the early part of the day. 

This is something we had never done before and will do again next year.  Of course, having legendary local musicians perform LIVE MUSIC on our BIG DECK each evening was a huge success.

Despite concerns of getting enough staff our team of locals and J1 Visa Students from Thailand were able to push out Exceptional Food and Drinks all Summer long. 

Special Thanks to these amazing employees for their efforts and for providing Great Service during a very busy Summer.

Our biggest sellers this year were our World Famous Bacon Cheddar Fudburger and our incredible Chicken Tenders followed closely by our numerous Shrimp Dishes and Combo Platters. 

Stand out Shrimp items were the Coconut Shrimp, Fried Shrimp A La Fud and our amazing Stuffed Shrimp Parmesan (Father Fud’s Favorite). Combo favorites were the Shrimp, Chicken and Alligator Combo and our gigantic Sea Fud Platter.

The new items that we introduced this year were very well received.  Leading the pack was our Mac & Cheesy Bacon Jam Burger, Shrimp and Alligator Pasta and Chicken and Waffles .

Our incredible gift shop, the Fudpucker Trading Company broke every record in the book this Summer largely due to the fact that it has something for everyone – including a NEW T-Shirt Designs and a plethora of name brand items. 

Our new line of Crazy Mother Pucker Hot Sauces did exceptionally well and we will be adding a “Clearly Crazy Hot Sauce” this Fall. If you missed out on any of these incredible merchandise and gift items during your visit please visit us online at

It was a pleasure serving you this Summer despite the many difficulties we have all been facing.  We were fortunate to bring in a fantastic staff who will continue to take good care of you – our valued customers as we exit this Crazy Busy part of the year. 

I am confident that you’ll find smiling faces and great service when you come back this Fall.  Stay Safe and Be Strong.
