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...

Enjoyed a tasty, and reasonably priced lunch on the waterfront patio. I ate the Walleye Sandwich, which tasted very fresh, and my wife liked the Tuna Stuffed Tomato salad. We both ordered a frosty mug of the delicious 1919 Root Beer On Tap. Hostess and servers were friendly, efficient, and accommodating. I will definitely return to the "Mucky Duck" during... More

Incredibly small portions that were not prepared very well. I ordered the special, a fish sandwich, and left hungry. I guess the prices are reasonable which is why I've given it 2 stars instead of 1.

Casual, rustic restaurant right on the water. We ate on the outside deck with a nice view of the water. Had the walleye dinner and the fish was excellent! Very lightly seasoned and very fresh. Next time I would have the baked potato, the small red potatoes were salty and had a little too much rosemary for my taste. The... More
