We were fortunate enough to find Captain Puddle Ducks through trip adviser last year. It is truly one of the best meals on Ocracoke Island. The steam pot that we ordered was absolutely fabulous… The owner Fletcher truly knows customer service. They will customize your order; deliver it to your back door and on time as promised. … Five Stars... More

This was a great meal. My husband and I ordered on a Friday evening and the food arrived on time and hot. The delivery boy set everything up for us and was very kind. The shrimp and crab legs were fantastic. I also loved the potatoes. If you visit Ocracoke, this may very well be your favorite meal!

We ordered the crab and shrimp pot for two and found the meal to be top rate. It was delivered to our door in less than one hour by a very polite young man. He unpacked everything and set up our meal. And what a delicious meal it was with plenty of leftovers. The shrimp were large and the crab... More

While the idea of delivering a hot steamer pot to your door is admirable, and while the young man who brought the meal to our door was efficient and polite and arrived at the appointed hour, and, while the cocktail sauce was very good, the rest of the meal fell as flat as a day old beer. Here are the... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your meal. I wish that you would have brought your concerns to my attention. We would have been happy to help you. Snow crab clusters are, just as you described, half a crab. We serve 8 ounce and up clusters. The steamer pot you described comes with 2 snow crab clusters as described... More

We ordered a couple of hours before our preferred delivery time on a Friday night and they were there right on time despite a downpour. The food was fabulous - we ordered the Nor'Easter and 2 lbs of shrimp. It was too much for the four of us to eat at one meal, despite everyone missing lunch that day. Everything... More

Perfect in every way. Delivered steaming hot (we wanted them to steam it in advance), we enjoyed this on our screened porch, while cute Ocracats peered in wondering if they could share. We slipped them a little crab . . . The meal we chose had HUGE shrimp, snow crab legs, potatoes, corn on the cob, and we added andouille... More

We ordered the smallest pot, the Miss Miranda. It included Snow Crab legs, a bounty of beautiful shrimp, potatoes and corn on the cob. The shrimp were absolutely fabulous. They were large, spiced and steamed to perfection. There was plenty of butter, lemons, crackers and cocktail sauce. We devoured everything. The crab legs were delicious as well. The young man...

We really loved the steamer. The food was plentiful, tasty, and they even picked up the pot after we were done. If you're on the island, be sure and treat yourself one night with this!

Had puddle ducks tonight after a half day excursion out on the water, and it was excellent. Everything arrived on time, and delivered by friendly staff. The seafood, captain's feast, was cooked to perfection. Delicious delicious.
