First you wait to get a parking spot, then a table but so well worth it. While waiting by the outside bar (wine and beer only was the one disappointment) listening to some fine guitar and vocals made the wait fun. The food, three of the four of us ordered and raved about the Grouper "de Paris" wow it was delicious. Then to go out to the beach and catch the Captiva sunset. Really this is one stop you should include on your Sanibel / Captiva vacaation.

Fun and funky with friendly service but way overpriced. Maybe the quasi remote location accounts for part of it but I was disappointed with my meal. Not BAD, but pricy for what it was. Come here for a beer if you want to experience it.

We had great dinner but plan on having no parking space during peak hours. We highly recommend the food that we had including crabcake, sword fish, and mahi-mahi. Even the kid's food were good (pasta and hot dog).

I had the swordfish which was cooked to perfection while my wife had the Grouper Paris which tasted as good as it looked based on the fact she didnt talk to me until she was done eating it! The view outside is not one to miss and sunset on the Gulf is different - in that being a life long East Coaster took me 15 mins to finally realize that the sun setting on the ocean was new to me and brain needed some time to process. My only complaint is that the parking is very limited; not just there but on all of Captiva; you'll spend almost as much time looking for a spot as you will being there and eating but honestly it was worth it in the end.

We are traveling with our doggy and heard Mucky Duck's beachfront patio is pet friendly so thought we'd give it a try. It is a popular place so go early especially if you want to sit on the patio outside and take in the sunset from the front row. The parking attendant does a great job keeping traffic moving in a very small, congested area. We were informed if you intend to eat on the patio you may only order from the appetizer menu. We ordered the crab cakes and the chicken tenders for Fido (stop it already - it's Fido's vacation too). Everything was delicious and came in a good size serving. There is live music and a real congenial, friendly atmosphere out there on the patio.
