“We were a little disappointed”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

The Mucky Duck's biggest attraction is the sunset they get most evenings. The sunset is nice.

When we went, it was extremely busy, hard to find parking, crowded and hard to move around. The food was average, nothing special

“Fun atmosphere and great island music on patio!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Get there early 6:30ish, parking is horrible and be prepared to wait for table. BUT while you wait, you can watch the sunset on the patio (all open seating) and there is an outdoor bar (Duck Punch is delish!). They had island live music which was fun to listen to. I ordered crab cakes and they were good but had eaten them at 'Doc Fords' (which were AMAZING) so I was slightly disappointed but those were hard to beat. The inside of the restaurant was very crowded and LOUD. It was also very hot. Meals were pretty pricey $25 per person+. If I return, I would enjoy the outdoor patio with the live music, have yummy drinks, order appetizers, and enjoy atmosphere and skip the inside all together! But the meal was good (I think if we had eaten here before Doc Ford's we would have thought the food was great here but Mucky Duck had better atmosphere).

“Liked it then. Love it now.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I originally visited the Mucky Duck back in the 70's. We expected a fun hospitable place with bar food. Well, were we surprised! Still hospitable and fun but who would have guessed the outstanding food. I had the grouper with sundried tomatoes and artichokes and thought I was in a 5 star restaurant! My friend had the barbeque shrimp and raved about it. Thank you Mucky Duck for a great evening!

“Don't let the name scare you”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We thought, 'ugh English pub in Florida?' So glad we tried it! Love the funky decor, great beer selection, excellent dinner (coconut shrimp were amazing). Beautiful sunset view and plenty of parking which for Captiva is rare. Nice to walk out on the beach after dinner to watch the sun go down.
