This little shop is a local favorite, with fast service from friendly youngsters, with a great beer selection and all your beach favorites… clam chowder, garlic fries, fish-n-chips…it's all here. If you're in Cayucos, don't miss Duckie's.

It was getting later and later and we just couldn't find anything along highway one. We had to drive into Cayucos because stops were far and few between. We were pleasantly surprised when we went to duckie's and the food was inexpensive and very fresh and tasty. The seafood was delicious.

The chowder was decent. The fish was not typical fish and chips, closer to cornmeal style catfish rather than ale battered cod. Chips were okay, but nothing special. I wouldn't go back unless other places were closed.

Great fish & chips, great clam chowder, prices are very fair. Wish there was more seating, but being right near the pier and beach makes it very popular. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Clam chowder was amazing. I had there fish and it was amazing. Everything was so fresh. And it wasn't greasy. I would go there again

Ate here for lunch with my family while visiting the beautiful town of Cayucos, CA. Duckies is located along the beachfront and welcomes families with leashed, well behaved dogs with their outdoor sitting, like us. Their clam chowder was freshly made, thick and oh so good....especially on a cool misty day. Their onion rings are nowhere near thin and flimsy,... More

My family always goes there for the great clam chowder, but they just don't have the friendliest staff.

A typical beach restaurant with lots of fried food but just what we wanted on the night we were there.

Stopped by here for a quick lunch with few expectations. Food & service were great; New England Chowder was excellent as we're the fish & chips my wife had. Great job Duckie's
