At first entry it feels like a bar, lots of locals. There is a dinning area and it is very informal. Food is average. Wait staff both times I was there were not familiar with the menu and had to go back and ask someone else when I asked questions. It had a grungy look to it with lots of... read more

Wondering how Linda S. from Oostburg could have visited this place in May of 2015. Mucky Duck closed in 2014 due to structural issues with the building.

We ate at the Mucky Duck this past summer and had the worst experience. The manager/server, not sure what position she has, was terrible and very rude. She swore at my husband and myself in front of my two young children (ages 3 & 1). The service was terrible along with burnt food. She made it very clear to every... More

While driving through Sheboygan we ran across this little jewel of a place. Not very fancy but very down to earth. We had the walleye sandwich with home made coleslaw which was very good. It was obvious this was a local place with fishermen still in their fishing cold weather gear. A really neat little place.

They certainly gave this "shanty" an appropriate name... My experience was yucky in this mucky place. I tried it on two separate occasions over the years. The location is good, especially during the summer months: it is right on the riverfront in Sheboygan and you can walk all the way out to the pier from just outside of the restaurant.... More

Down on the boardwalk along the waterfront you will find this little nautical restaurant. Food is good and the view is wonderful. Best place to stop for a break while strolling the many shops along the boardwalk.

This is a typical waterfront shanty restaurant with many locals at the bar and eating. While not particularly clean, the food was reasonably tasty and Jennifer's service was very good. If you like the occasional shanty eatery, this will do, but understand it is not up-scale.

We were trying to find a place for dinner on a Friday night and were misled by someone we asked. We did go by it the next day and peaked in the windows. We wished we wouldnt have listened to the naysayer.

Just came from eating lunch at Mucky Duck and the 4 of us are impressed. Everyone we met was warm and friendly and provided excellent service. Perch sandwich was superb, grilled cheese was tasty and grilled to perfection. Thumbs up on the Clam Chowder and Key Lime Pie. Prices are very affordable. There was quite a crowd when we were...
