Great location on the beach

We ate here a couple of years' ago on our last visit, so tried it again. Perfect location, right on the beach to catch those gorgeous sunsets, although weather wasn't cooperating a few njghts' ago. We were promptly seated and served. I had grouper fried in crushed cornflakes which sounds strange... read more

This restaurant has one of the best sunset views in Captiva. People must know this, because the crowd starts coming twenty minutes before the sunset. Many prefer to have appetizers and drinks at the tables by the beach while watching the sunset, and then go inside to eat. There is no service outside though, you need to go in the... More

We vacationed on Sanibel and drove over to Captiva to have drinks at the Mucky Duck. Micah, our bartender, made it an enjoyable visit! It got rather amusing watching my Patriot fan husband and Dolphin fan Micah hash it out. On our second visit, we happened to have Micah as our waiter. The food was delicious and the service was...

Beautiful beach...but food was over priced for choices. Got a great t-shirt there! The drinks were good...and sandy beach was nice. Loved the colored beach chairs.

Good food, priced right. Get there early or you will wait. Worth it. Out side seating and entertainment for the sunset. It is right on the Gulf.

This place is great for sunset views, drinks and live music. I would not recommend the food though. The menu did not say "English Pub" to me. Yes, Fish and Chips and Guinness are served but that's about as English Pub as it gets. My husband and I went there this past week. I had the seafood platter and he... More

My husband and I went for a late lunch after a morning of kayaking. We didn't have to wait for a table and, even though we weren't by the window, still had a great view of the beach. The service and food were fantastic! The Mucky Duck is an iconic place for a cozy and casual meal in the heart... More

I will admit right away that I've never ordered any food here... Every time I have visited it's been about an hour or so before sunset, and I'm with family or friends that are visiting. We have a couple drinks and watch the sunset on the outside patio at the Mucky Duck because they usually have musical entertainment outside, plenty... More

My husband took me to Captiva island for our 8th anniversary. Amazing! We asked some of the locals about where to see the best sunset while having a few drinks. Mucky Duck is the place. We drove by it around 5:00 p.m. and said we'll be back by 7:00 p.m, since sunset wasn't until 8:15 p.m. When we went back... More
