First, this place is very affordable, and the food quality and servings were both very good. We had good service both times. The first time there were 6 of us for lunch, and we liked the crunchy grouper, the cole slaw, and shrimp tacos. The...More

We only got drinks and dessert, but they were delicious and the view was to die for. Rum punch was fantastic by the inside younger bartender with a beard. We got walnut brownie sundaes and were in heaven.

Best spot on the beach to enjoy sunset and a meal. A classic and favorite. Worth the time to drive there.

Best place for a sunset cocktail and dinner. The view was amazing and the House cocktails were great. Salmon and sword fish were first rate. A must try!

Had lunch with friends and family. Location was great, lunch quality was mediocre at best, over priced, portions were small, service was slow. Would go back for a cocktail and sit on the beach, nothing more.

My wife and I were able to make the sunset and it was truly amazing, listening to the live music and enjoying the shrimp cocktail and fried calamari. I highly recommend the Mucky Duck. It’s a must when visiting Captiva!

Can’t have a better setting for a nice meal than the Mucky Duck. I had a spinach salad that was quite tasty with grilled shrimp. My vodka cranberry was just so so. Parking is tight so I would walk if able.
