The Mucky Duck is a great family restaurant tucked into Captiva's coastline. The menu is exactly what it should be- good, family fare with a decent children's menu and daily specials worth trying. The food is served with a small portion of attitude on the side (if you ever ask for a table beside the window, they will seat you... More

You cannot beat the sunset. The music is old Florida atmosphere. The food is good, worth eating there but not exceptional.

We had dinner here one night. I had the swordfish, my husband had the grouper. They were both good. One of our companions had the steak, and offered a piece to us. It was the worst steak either of us had ever eaten. We both had to sneak it out of our mouths it was so bad. They do not... More

Awesome sunset views. The food inside is quite good and the outside is the beach! It's not that big of a place, but nothing on Captiva is all that big :)

Driving around after a day at the beach and decided to stop here for dinner. Very nice location. There's a bar outside and live music. Great dinner, great service and then a beautiful sunset to top the evening off.

Good location for the sunset but disappointed in the bar. Very limited and would suggest not worth it.

If we could do it again, we'd go back...but just for drinks and appetizers outside. It's wonderful right around sunset. The view is beautiful, they have a live band and an outside bar. You can also order appetizers inside and eat outside. That's the good. The bad? The service was not great. It seemed we were bothering our server by... More

Stopped here for dinner during our vacation on Sanibel Island. This is a traditional-style English pub, meaning they seat for dinner at set times, not just whenever you show up. So, there is going to be some waiting involved. But, there's not too many places that are better to wait! Pick up a drink, have a seat outside, and watch... More

Food has gone down hill but we were still coming about once a month for the atmosphere and drinks. Made a reservation for Mother's Day. When we pulled into the empty parking lot early in the day maybe a half hour before they opened, the "parking lot bouncer" comes over to us and starts yelling (literally yelling) at us to... More
