Located right on the Gulf in "downtown" Captiva, The Mucky Duck gives the patrons a great waterfront location and view. The food, however, is a bit overpriced and very, very average. What you pay for is the setting not the quality of the meal. We found the Mucky Duck to be overpriced and overrated with underwhelming cuisine.

Been coming here for YEARS and always happy with food and service. Will say that on this most recent visit, we had the rudest bartender ever! And not just to us. Believe she found herself to be clever but a little kindness would have gotten her a much larger tip. Thank Heavens the restaurant is still great!

This was probably my favorite place to eat! Everyone that works there are fun and friendly even the management! The atmosphere was great and the food was excellent. I tried Scallops for the first time ever and they just melt in your mouth. This restaurant is right on the ocean and the whole back of the restaurant has windows so no matter where you sit you can see the ocean. After dinner they had live music outside and beach chairs to kick back and relax and watch the sun set!!!!!

I am usually a very positive person. Tonight has one of the most overrated lousy dinners of my life. Had dinner with 5 people. Waitress forgot to bring our drinks. Calamari barely cooked for appetizer. Entrees just so so. $20 for fish n chips not good. We were told don't miss the Key Lime Pie for dessert... Tasted like bad Sara Lee. It was bar Food on a Cavier Budget. Very Disappointing.

So... We had a party of 25... Figured we would have to wait forever, but they were super! We only had to wait about 45 minutes... And this place was packed! The staff was amazing! Everyone was so friendly!
The food was kinda pricey... But it was good! Menu had plenty of options, so it was hard to choose. We all tried each other's food... And had a great dinner!
The beach after dinner was my favorite part, the sunset was beautiful!
