“Great location with a good atmosphere and tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We visited for Sunday lunch following a personal recommendation and were not disappointed.
The place was busy, the staff friendly and efficient. The food was fairly basic fare but tasty and good value. With its location on the beach this is a popular venue that is worth a visit. I'll certainly return!

“Fun at Sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Been going here since 1982 when in the area for the food and beautiful sunsets. Be sure to get there early if you want a parking spot and a table, but if you can walk to it and just hang out at the outside bar for drinks and sunset it is all good.

“Service is very good - food is fine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The food is fine but not great. In the evening, the restaurant has a very nice ambiance with music. It is right on the beach so the sunset is beautiful.

“Great view, fun atmosphere, and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I visited The Mucky Duck in February (off season) at sunset. People were gathered on the beach to watch the incredible sunset! Even in the off-season, I had to park blocks away and walk to the Mucky Duck, so I would advise you to arrive early.

The outdoor seating and Tiki Bar was relaxing and offered a wonderful view of the gulf. I believe the outdoor seating is for cocktails only, not for dining. I was almost disappointed when our name was called to move inside for dinner. But even inside, everyone has a window view (okay, I need to clarify. They have a "window on wheels" that they bring around to tables so everyone has a window view ... just part of the fun.) I was there with a group of 4 and we all ordered something different from the dinner menu. Everyone in my group was satisfied with their meal.

It was affordable for the location ($20-$30 entrees) and had a great tropical feel. Highly recommended!

“Great Atmosphere while you wait.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This place sits right on the beach. you sit outside in the patio while you wait to be called for a table, but while you wait you encounter people having fun and listening to music. There is an outside bar that prepare drinks using wine and beer only. The food is very good and my favorite are the BBQ shrimps. LOVE IT!
