Crazy!

Wild and crazy scene! Noisy, crowded and fun! Surprisingly good food. right on the beach. We went with the flow and had a great time. Very informal. Live music. Limited parking.

I loved the personality of this place. A laid-back beach place that serves good seafood and bar-like food. Expect a long wait, especially around sunset. They have outdoor seating, bar and usually live music to keep you busy for the long wait. They do not take reservations. Bring a deck of cards to pass the time.

I wan't to start with the positives - so here goes: The location right on the beach has an amazing view and the parking attendant helped us get a spot in the small lot. That was easy enough. Now the negatives: The bartender got a serious attitude when I added 50 cents with my drink payment (I wanted to get... More

Food isn't great but you come here for the atmosphere and views. We love the mucky duck and I've been coming for over 30 years. Kids love it also. If you want to eat inside and get a good view, get there early when they open as a line always forms about 10-15 minutes before the doors open.

Great local vibe, doesn't kill you on price and food is actually good. Great outdoor atmosphere if you choose that. Parking is brutal so be prepared...but it is worth it.

We had lunch here this week after a long, slow drive to Captiva. It's "season" of course so we knew there would be an issue getting here. But we were seated inside the cool air conditioning as soon as we arrived and this was at peak time around noon! The waitress was very pleasant and the food good and with... More

Arrive early if you want to see the sunset and put your name in for a table. We arrived at 6:30 and finally parked at Marina 4 blocks away ($5) and at 7 put our name in for a table...earliest was 9;30 p.m. Sunset at 7:40 was spectacular! The huge crowd at the beach even applauded! We had drinks and... More

We got there around 4:30pm on Sunday. Parked the car with no problem and put our names on the list for a table for 2. We were told we'd sit around 6:15 pm. The outdoor area was great ! Right on the beach, live music, a bar, a few Adirondack chairs and tables with umbrellas. Very casual. The bar has... More

Best location on the island to watch the sunset and 1000's do every night. Great outdoor bar with live music. Lots of fun and buzz. We didn't eat because it was too long to wait for a table. Maybe next time. A must visit if you are on Sanibel.

Great seaside spot, good food, but not great. Good bar outside and seating outside is good need to service yourself sitting outside. Need to go at least once. Plenty of good restaurants near by.
