The food was very, very expensive and was average quality. Moreover, there was a long wait as there are only a handful of restaurants on Captiva.

Swing by - even if its for a short visit. Mucky Duck reminds me of a local place where we live but packed with folks who mostly are on vacation or staycation. We live over on the East Coast so we understand - but we love bumping into folks and finding out where there from. This is that kind of place. The bar service - once you find an empty seat - she rocked, great service, well poured, yumo and timely! Yes, the wait line, hard to find a place to park, its small, did they call my name yet - once you get past that and sit with your favorite drink of sorts. Relax - enjoy - your on Captive Island Time. No stoplights, no streetlights, no skyscrapers. All is good - and works for us.

The food here is pretty good. The place is right on the beach, has a great atmosphere and service was great. It's by far the best restaurant in the whole Captiva area.

Be prepared for a wait but well-worth it. Beachfront views great at sunset. Delicious crabcakes and swordfish on the menu. A bit pricey for what you get for such a casual place, but hey, you're on Captiva Island!

Although our wait was long we were able to pass the time with an appetizer outside while we wait which was a nice touch. The food was excellent.
