We had 2 friends recommend puddle ducks so we gave it a try. Ordered our steamer pot and was delivered an hour later as promised. All the food was great including the potatoes and corn. We had more food than we could eat so we packed it up and will enjoy the left overs today at our home in the mountains. The whole family found something to eat even though my daughter doesn't like seafood. Good food.

Drawback, takes one hour and carry out and delivery only. Call ahead of time. However, excellent quality and fresh food. Generous portions, couldn't finish it all. Well worth it!!!

We visited Ocracoke last night after a week long stay further north in the OBX. This was by far the best/freshest seafood all week.
Delivery time was one hour as promised.
Highly recommend!

We gave them two chances...both times, they were over an hour late and the food was delivered by an 11 year old kid....by the time we got the food (which is pricey), we were starving. Considering it is very fresh food though, we will probably give them another chance this summer. Maybe they will remember us and put forth more effort. Also, if you have picky kids and/or husband that don't/doesn't eat seafood, eat somewhere else.

Thank you for your comments.
Every steamer pot is prepared fresh when an order is placed. For this reason, as it is stated on our menu, orders need to be placed at least an hour in advance. If you have seen our other comments and reviews, you will see that prompt delivery is a priority to us, We sincerely apologize if when you ordered it was not made clear when to expect your order to arrive.
We are a small, family business. Everyone in our family does their own part. One of our sons goes along with one of us to help deliver orders. He is courteous and he enjoys doing his part to help. As parents of a large family ourselves, we started this business, primarily, as a way to offer fresh N.C. seafood and other quality ingredients to give families an option that is more convenient and more affordable than dining out. We feel, as do most of our customers, that both the quality and quantity of our dinners is well worth the price. I am sorry if you do not feel that way. We are glad that you enjoyed the fresh seafood, prepared just for you! If you are looking for options other than seafood in the future, we are more than happy to suggest a restaurant in the neighborhood that would better suit your preferences. Thank you again for your feedback.

The best restaurant on Ocracoke is in your house thanks to Captain Puddleduck's. The seafood is high quality and delicious. The price is reasonable considering what you get which is also a large portion size. I ordered the Andoulie sausauge as an extra to the steamer pot. Here is how it worked. We ordered the food, the food was delivered to our back porch picnic table, and we chowed down. A great meal and a lot of fun.
