Quite a special atmosphere at Mucky Duck. While food is ok, but not great, it is an ideal spot to have a drink and look at the ocean.
At Christmas time, they have a decorated tree, ideal for making a stunning picture with the ocean as a background.

Dined here with family. Good atmosphere and food. Very busy when we called, but service and food were fine. Can recommend.

We have been to the Mucky Duck about 4 times in the past 2 years. We have always enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. The place is a local gathering spot to watch the sunsets and as such it gets difficult to find a spot to sit outside at the picnic tables or the chairs until after the sun sets.
There is a bar outside as well as inside which is nice. You can order food inside for consumption outside as there is no table service outside.
This trip we dined there 2 times. Once I had bacon wrapped shrimp while the other time I had the fried grouper sandwich. Both choices were great.
The duck is a very nice place to check out for food and for just beverages and a nice view.

Finely made it to Mucky Duck. I was second inline to put my family's name on the waiting list for dinner. Getting inline at 3:30 for dinner at 5 was a wast of my time. We had a party of 6 and was told we would be in front of restaurant so we could see the sunset. Well that was not the case we got seated clear in the back after being second inline. To make things worse the service was pretty bad. It seemed like the waiter was being rude because my family was upset about the seating. The food is nothing to write home about but the manager did pay for are drinks. Thanks for the view of the wall you gave my grandparents. I will probably never go back to eat at Mucky Duck.

If you're in the mood for a fancy cocktail, forget it. If you enjoy a good local craft beer or a glass of wine, this is your place to go at sunset. The beach is perfect for a stroll or a wave to family via their live webcam. We did not have any food but did enjoy the company outdoors in 80F weather in December! Not too many places left that feel somewhat authentic and not taken over by some chain. Fair prices on beer too!
