“Not impressed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

We were recomended the Mucky Duck as a good place to eat, although when we arrived it was nothing like an English pub, and the inside was dull and claistrophobic. The view was amazing from outside (unless you managed to get a table by the window) The service was fine but the food was way over priced, we are from the UK and it was the most expensive meal we have had in our three week trip. My daughter is a vegetarian so we ordered the special (meals of the day) pasta which usually would have come with shrimp and other fish, so with just plain pasta they only took $4, costing $20 thats ridiculous. My fish cakes were nice but rest of the family said that it was not a good meal. Our bill for 5 was nearly $ 200, most meals we have had out were $80 to $100, and so much nicer. We thought that the price we paid did not match up to food or setting, and would reccomend if you would like to see the sunset, to buy and drink and watch from outside. From Jayne UK.

“If you're in the area...this is a MUST stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Great location, views, service, and food. Just ask for a table next to the window and see where they seat you and what happens. The servers are very good, friendly, and comical. You'll be glad you made this an expierience you remember and will visit again!

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Lot's of parking. Very nice views. friendly staff. good food.good prices fast service.
The beach is just outside the window. If you don.t have a window view the staff brings out a roll around window, I thought that was a cute touch. they have an outside bar with patio seating.

“No tequila margaritas??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011 via mobile

Great view and party atmosphere on the patio. But they don't use tequila in their margaritas. What's with that? Instead some kind of agave (sp?) wine... I dunno. It had a weird taste.
