Fiancé got the Ribeye and he hasn't stopped bragging about how good it was. I got the jalapeño pepperjack burger and it was delicious! Saùl was our server, very friendly and prompt :) We will be back on our next trip to Destin!

The place has allure. Writing all of everything, an alligator pit, really neat one time visit. Food was ok nothing special. Prices were relatively high for what you got. Service was good got a t shirt!

Next door to our hotel, Fairfield inn. A nice little escape for the kids to keep them busy. Lots of gators!

The kids love the gators and cool atmosphere. Robyn our server was great and very attentive! The alligator bites hit the spot.

Our kids heard about this place from their friends---They were excited about feeding live gators and arcade games. We caved and went for dinner. That was a mistake. The food was mediocre and very pricey, and it took over half an hour after we ordered...More

Fish tacos were good but the best part was the kids had a great time feeding the gators. Food was overall good.

Had the bacon wrapped shrimp and it was good. I was surprised it's award winning. I wouldn't say it's that good. Food is good but just ok in my opinion. Wouldn't go back.

Excellent place to take families and large groups. Food was awesome and reasonably priced. You keep your souvenir glasses with certain drinks which was very cool. Over 100 live alligators on site, you can even feed them! Ambiance was totally kid friendly, highly recommend.

Yes, there is a $10 charge to hold the alligators and get a souvenir photo taken with them. You can enter Gator Beach and see our exhibit for free - Holding an alligator and feeding the alligators are the only charges.

Go mid-week after lunch, but before dinner to avoid the long wait. Kids will enjoy the gator viewing. Be sure to take Sharpie markers to add your own graffiti (it's allowed and encouraged).
