Beautiful spot on beach, casual and fun. Beer ice cold, service attentive and smart. This place has fun with the demands of tourists. Inevitably we all want window seats, despite the fact that every seat in the place more or less has a view. For particularly demanding guests the server may wheel a small freestanding window to your table: sly, funny and humbling.

Burgers best bet at lunch, cole slaw wonderful. Fish menu at dinner surprisingly good. Parking is limited so walk along the beach to get there. Eat more food since you've burned the calories!

Love this place!

The food was very good. I had scallops augratin, a margarita, and tried 2 appetizers, jalapeno poppers, and duck fingers, both good. They don't have a liquor license, so it was a "wine based", half strength drink, but it tasted good. Prices are a little high, but their location is excellent. Captiva is beautiful, and after dinner, we stayed on the patio and beach area for the sunset and took some great photographs.

We drove to Captiva for lunch and visit to the beach from Sanibel. Arrived at 2.58 pm and noticed sign saying lunch served until 3. By the time the hostess acknowledged us it was 3.01 and we were bluntly told the kitchen was closed. I asked that as it was just after 3 was there any chance they could serve any food but was told no. We ended up going up the street to the Key Lime Bistro which serves lunch until 5 and had an excellent lunch there.

Go here for a drink and the view. Walk up the street to another restaurant for your food. The Mucky Duck has one of the best beach sites in florida, especially at sundown, which up's it rating in my estimation to "Average". Based on the food, I would give it a "Poor" rating. I have now been there three different times expecting improvement in the food, but it never happened. Other people who frequent the Island expressed similar comments. Even the burgers are lousey!!

We've call in at the Duck for the last 22 years and the parking hasn't improved. However, weather permitting the sun goes down over the horizon every night. If you lucky with your timing you may get a window seat, failing that you can stand on the beach and watch nature at it best. The Duck is family friendly restaurant and to prove it our family came down from Wisconsin to join us. Great company, not great food but good food in a great place.
