The Mucky Duck will survive because of its location on the beach.It is one of the best places to watch the sunset with a cold beer or glass of wine.The food for dinner is overpriced and uninteresting.We have dined there 3 times now because of the location,we stay on the same block its located on.Lunch is fine and the service staff is average.

We have been coming to Captiva since 1995 and found that the Mucky Duck is open at odd hours, the kitchen closes between lunch and dinner, and the bar staff acts like you are a major inconvenience if you want something other than a beer or something that is easy to make. You get the impression that due to their location on the beach, they don't feel the need to compete with the other restaurants. They will just keep attracting the 'sunset' crowd that may never return again to Captiva.

You go to the atmosphere live music toes in the sand drink and then and kids are welcome but I would not advise bringing them if you want to relax take full advantage of the Atmosphere.
Did not eat food but restaurant got packed by 6. We got there about 4 o'clock and scored perfect seats out by the ocean.

Despite the above, it is still worth the trip! Classic beach restaurant that is known for it's great sunsets. Food is average but specials are a step above that. Service is friendly and overall this is a nice dining experience. Last word- don't be surprised if you have a wait for your table.

I recently did what I thought was a review of The Mucky duck in Captiva.
I have realised I pressed The Captiva Cantina button, so anyone reading that would you please
take it as a review for the Mucky Duck as I never visted The Captiva Cantina.
Thank you
