Fast food; fun place

It is easy to get some good fish & chips in your bathing suit and be all sandy in this place. The service is fast, friendly and casual here. The prices are right and it is a wonderful place to go for a quick snack.

We went for dinner the first night of our trip. Tired, cold, and hungary. Hubby got a bowl of clam chowder, I got a cup. It was sooooo good. I didn't finish my chicken & salad because the soup was so good. It was very busy, but the staff handled it well and seemed well trained.

Second time here...great service; They may have long lines, but efficient staff-- very friendly and accommodating. Blackened fish "Bowl" was a wonderful meal...fresh steamed veggies, flavorful rice pilaf, and a generous grilled fish filet.Loved the tartar sauce as well!I also had the manhattan clam chowder, which was flavorful, but not salty... Ambience is beachy and festive. Prices and service right... More

The first time we came to Cayucos 7 years ago, Duckie's was the first place we ate at for lunch. We've been going there ever since, every time we come up to the area. My wife says it's the best chowder she's ever had, even better than the Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, and she's very picky about clam chowder.... More

Duckie's is awesome!!!! Great food. My parents love the Fish and Chips. Clam Chowder is great. Use the To Go window on the side of the building for to go orders. So much easier than waiting in line.

The food was average. The atmosphere was noisy. The set-up was nice being near the historic pier. Fish and chips were greasy. It is hard to find good fish and chips in coastal towns where you at least hope and expected it.

Lunch time found us at this beachfront restaurant. My daughter ordered a cup of clam chowder and exclaimed it to get the best ever! Hubby and I shared a bowl of the creamy clam chowder as well as an order of fish tacos. We agree with our kid that the chowder tasted very good, fresh and soft-not chewy clams. The... More

We had chowder (both types), Nancy's salad and french fries. The food was good but the people were super friendly and even helped us with Hiking ideas.

Easy stop off the highway and worth it for the chowder. Eight of us and everyone had a great meal. The calamari sandwich had a piece of calamari that was huge. I had the fried clams and they were great but a little short on the amount. Shrimp dishes looked good and reported as delicious.
