Located at the base of the pier, Duckie's is in a great spot. Parking wasn't too bad. Dining is inside or out--we chose to eat inside. The service attendant at the counter wasn't too helpful :( and that was the only negative part of the review. She was... meh... and seemed annoyed at questions. No, we are not from Cayucos.... More

The food here was ok, nothing special. The table service is like fast food - order from the counter and grab a table (if you can). There is outdoor seating too. They also serve alcohol.

Upon ordering our food and receiving the food, they only deliver one dinner and forgot the other. At the table, I order another after their mistake I waited quiet a long time before finally getting order right. Then my fish and chip were not as good as others.

Fish and chips and the fish bowl seem to be our family favorites. The location is right next to the pier...or you can take out your meal (which is what some of our family do every time they visit Cayucos). It is a Cayucos staple.

Ok. We have been here on the Central Coast for three weeks. I have had other clam chowder. None impressed me. This is the absolutely best Clam Chowder. World Famous? I don't know about that but this place is hopping. Service is absolutely great. Fish and chips very good. Food is very hot. Service is fast. You go up and... More

Been to Duckie's many times. Staff is friendly and efficient. Food is fast, fresh and casual. Always get the clam chowder. Hot and creamy. Tuna sandwich is so big we always share it. A Cayucos must. They own Dorns in Morro Bay also.

We have gone to Cayucos for many years, but felt we had to go to Morro Bay for good fish and chips. Love that Duckies is in Cayucos near the pier. Great fish and chips, great service. Clam chowder was good too.

Landed up Duckies accidentally on our last day in Cayucos. We were staying in Cambria and wanted to pick up some cookies from their famous cookie shop and decided it would be a good idea to grab lunch before heading back to the Bay Area. It looked a bit busy and we thought we'd check it out. We were almost... More

We enjoy eating at Duckies for their sea food and chowder. Take out or dine at Duckie's indoor counter or tables. Place you order at the counter and the food is delivered to you at your table. Pretty much a simple seafood menu. The food is cooked to order and you will receive a more than a adequate serving -... More
