Great food and even better location! It gets very busy in peak seasons though and they don't take reservations so id suggest going there and putting your name on the waiting list (can be a couple of hours wait) then explore Captiva, the nearby shops and come back closer to the time or its literally on the beach front so we were happy to have a drink, watch the sunset and they have some musical entertainment outside aswell (although they finish pretty quickly after sunset).

Went here our first night in captiva. The place is directly on the beach so that is a plus from the start. The entertainment was good but ended ver early. We had a late dinner but probably should have kept to just having drinks. The food was way over cooked and just not that good. The mucky duck is a fun place to hang out, but if you want a good meal, it should be called the yucky duck.

This is the place to get a good meal, good drink and good vibe for the sunset on Captiva Island. It is fun and just something you want to do. The sunset from this location is spectacular and ambiance is great. Parking can be a problem so just plan ahead for that.

We wanted to stop for appetizers around 4 pm but the restaurant didn't serve food until 5. We like the place but had hoped for a lite appetizer and a glass of wine instead of waiting for the dinner crowd.

The Mucky Duck on Captiva island is a location you must visit! First of all, the drive from Sanibel Island to Captiva is absolutely beautiful! Once you arrive in Captiva, parking is at a minimum, so my suggestion is to go early and have nothing else on your schedule for the evening; find a place to park (there is some parking at the Mucky Duck for customers); if you want some great food in a casual, friendly atmosphere---get your name on the waiting list as they do not take reservations. Then, go outside, grab a beverage and enjoy the beautiful beachfront which offers very popular and beautiful sunsets! You do not need to be a patron of the restaurant to enjoy their beachfront and spectacular sunsets.... The menu offerings at the Mucky Duck are quite reasonable and very good!
