Gator Beach, Destin Reviews

  • Busy restaurant with live alligators!! Many arcade games, live baby alligator studio photo at $10. Seafood are mostly fried though if you do not like. Gift shop is high and many items to see!

  • This place was awesome! I'd give it 5 stars if my whole family would have raved about the food. I had the gator burger and thought the flavor and portion size was well worth it. My kids had the regular burgers but only thought they were ok. The actual facility is what is really cool! We got to feed the gators, my kids got to hold a gator and take a picture with it. They also had a play area which my toddler really enjoyed and a small arcade.

  • The Gator Beach was so cool! I loved watching them swim and eat off the rods provided for feeding. You can get pictures holding one too. It was free to walk in and see them, but we ate at the restaurant too. Wonderful place. Warning though, there are tons of stairs to get around. I don't know if there's any accessible route, sorry!

  • Staff really cares about the Gators and know what they're doing. Super knowledgeable. Reasonably priced pics and food to feed them with!

  • An awesome place to take the family if you're looking to get a bite to eat and some pretty unique entertainment. Stopping by Gator Beach to feed the alligators is an absolute must for the kids when we're in Destin.
