Awful. Order GF cheeseburger, it came on a regular bun. This was my first time here so I was really confused, I thought they had pinned down some kind of miraculous new GF bun at first glance. Then I asked the server if it was GF, he said YES! I told him I wasn’t so sure, so he went back and asked. It was NOT gf. They remade it, only this time my burger was raw and dripping blood. They remade it a THIRD time, forgot the cheese and the bun was hard as a rock. Spent over two hours there for a horrible experience. I did try the burger on its own and ate my baked potato - do not recommend!!

Fudpuckers is awesome! Super fun atmosphere and really good food. Not only was my food delicious, but they have really good protocol for allergies. They cook the gluten allergies in a separate area in the kitchen and have the manager bring your food out to you separate from the rest. I had a blackened mahi mahi sand which with rice and coleslaw on the side!

Review


Unfortunately despite the staff being extremely kind & understanding and even slightly knowledgeable on gluten and celiac issues everything contained gluten. Despite all of that I did bring my Nima sensor to test for gluten before ingesting to make sure I wouldn’t get sick and unfortunately on both readings of just a basic salad of lettuce, carrots, tomatoes & pico de gallo w a side of oil & vinegar and guac all came back with gluten. I did a second test without the guac assuming their spices and what not aren’t CGF but even without that just the salad itself came back with enough traces of gluten over 20PPM(parts per million), which is the amount needed or more for the Nima sensore to give you the reading of gluten. Their menu does discuss airborne wheat flour but unfortunately despite their best efforts I still would’ve gotten sick making this truly an unsafe place for celiacs even despite all these good reviews; the traces of gluten do hurt us so I’d recommend just skipping out on a meal here and letting your loved ones enjoy. I’m glad I had my Nima sensor to save me in a moment like that, despite being so confident that it would be gluten free I am so glad I didn’t ingest anything.

Food was delicious. They understood gluten free and someone from the kitchen brought my food out separate from everyone else’s. I got the bacon cheeseburger and loaded baked potato. Yum!

Daughter has celiac and felt great after eating here. Manager delivered her food separately with gloves on. Best bun she said she ever had on her burger. Waitress seemed very knowledgeable when we brought up celiac disease.

Limited GF menu. Ordered the Mushroom/Swiss Burger. It was ok. Pineapple ColeSlaw was listed on the GF menu but is now NOT gluten free. Wife is not gluten free got a chicken sandwich which said was the best food the whole trip.

We started with the gator VIP experience, so much fun! We fed the gators, held the little ones and learned so much. We got our picture taken and early access to the restaurant. Great choice, hear they are crazy busy any other time! GF and Vegetarian menu! Food is brought out separate for those with allergens to help avoid cross contamination. Very pleased!!

We waited forever to be seated. I ordered the chicken and they told me I could not have the toppings and the only safe sides were broccoli and seasonal veggies. Everything was so plain no seasoning at all on anything. The waitress was apologetic but we would not go back.

The staff here were absolutely wonderful to take extra precautions for my daughter to make sure her food was safe. I’m so glad we ate here on our trip. I called ahead and they were prepped and ready for us when we got there. The manager brought her food out with gloves on. Fun place to eat and everyone enjoyed their meal.

The atmosphere is fun. Strawberry daiquiris are awesome! The food was so/so - selection is limited and the only way they seem to prepare gf seafood is to drown it in butter. That said, the meal was decent and I did not have a reaction.

The staff was very diligent to make sure what I was ordering was gluten free. When my food came out it was brought my a manager and he was wearing gloves, along with my plate being marked as a gluten allergy. My waiter also asked if it was an allergy or a preference because they have certain protocol. I ordered the shrimp scampi, without the bread crumbs and a baked potato. The only reaction that I had was heartburn.
