Best live music venue in Houston!
Jan 2020 • Friends
If you have never been, you need to get there as soon as possible! It is intimate and there is never a bad band. I have been over 100 times in the last ten years, often to artist I already know, but sometimes just because I’m in the mood for some live music. Rusty always shows his guests a great time! The food is another amazing part of the night. There is nothing bad on the menu, but I especially love to get the shepard’s pie! The drinks and beer are reasonably priced as well.

Great Dinner and Music Venue
Oct 2019 • Couples
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit at Mucky Duck. Local family and friends introduced us to the place. We had dinner and listened to Pat Byrne and his group. Great Irish music. One might expect good music or good food but not both. Mucky Ducks has the whole package! We had a “better than bar food” meal. Great music. Intimate and artistic atmosphere. Nice sound. All in all a great evening out for a reasonable amount. Unique event spot with a personal feel. Week be back!

Enjoyable Evening
May 2019
My 2 friends and I had a great time. It is very easy to get to from the medical district. There is a small parking lot in back and plenty of parking on the street. We went to hear an elementary classmate who now lives in LA & writes music his own music/songs. The food was tasty. There were two shows-one starting at 7:00 and a second starting at 9:30.Tickets are purchased for each individual show. Our waitress was great (Gwendolyn). She noticed our table was wobbly and crawled under it with coasters to make it level without being asked. I would go again even if JDavid Hinton weren't performing.

If you're looking for a Casual Music Venue
Feb 2019 • Friends
An intimate music venue with very good food and great drinks. Updated Irish pub fare. Very nice beer and wine choices, with a bar that knows how to make cocktails. Check to make sure they have space. Even during the week, the place can be full.

Cool little place
Dec 2018 • Couples
We came here from out of town to listen to Ian Moore play. What a neat little place! It was such an intimate setting with a surprisingly delicious menu! I didn’t love the community style tables, but maybe that was just because of the concert/venue. It was kind of cramped, but everyone was quiet and respectful of the Artist so it made it easier to tolerate. Drinks and dinner were a little pricey, but considering the location, they were probably fairly priced. Overall a nice experience and we’d definitely return.

Thank you Stacey! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the Duck. Happy news about the tables...we only use the pilgrim style seating for the holiday parties...once the tree is down is down and the big groups go back to normal parties of four and eight, we are able to put our usual dining tables back in, so hooray, elbow room! We are delighted that you found our food to be delicious, it's nice to hear and we hope that knowing we have chosen to offer only farm raised animal products makes a difference when considering the menu prices. We do hope that on your next visit to Houston you will return to the Duck, we would love to meet you!

Intimate venue with GREAT music and pub grub.
Aug 2018
This iconic Houston pub has been around for about 25 years, providing musicians and patrons both the best venue to enjoy some of the best music from national and international performers. Miss Bonnie serves some of the best Irish and American dishes in town. Quality is consistently wonderful. Many beers available, including a perfectly poured pint of Guinness. Cocktails also available. Something going on every night of the week, from Open Mic to Game Night. Rusty and Theresa, the owners, are always welcoming and accomodating. They are also involved in community , as well. Do yourself a favor. Don't miss spending an evening or lunch at The Duck.

Roomy Irish pub which of course serves Guinness and also a wide range of beers and wines. Food is really good to. Check out their website for their music nights. We went on Tuesday night and saw Front Country, didn’t think their would be to my taste but was pleasantly surprised by the vocals and talented musicians {can be viewed on YouTube}. Well worth a visit.
