We had a fun time eating lunch here where we enjoyed fresh, tasty food that wasn't fussy; just right for beach food. Our server was pleasant and helpful--she was responsive to our questions about traveling in the immediate area. We returned later for a drink at the bar and were having such a fine time visiting with another couple (the friendly atmosphere of the place contributed) that we wound up joining them for dinner there. So, The Mucky Duck was the centerpiece of our fun day at the beach!

We arrived at 5 and were told we would be seated between 8&8:30. Place didn't look worth a 3 hour wait. Sunset from the beach is beautiful. Skip dinner and just watch the sunset. Too many other good places down there to eat and not have that wait!

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).
