During our annual vacation to this area, from New England, we meet for lunch at the Mucky Duck several times to absorb the tropical views of the sand, palm trees, and water, while dining on fresh seafood and salads. This is our favorite lunch location. I always email a photo to my friends back home, and they wish they were... More

We have been going to the Mucky Duck for over 10 years and have noticed the food quality has been deteriorating for quite some time. The only reason we go there at all is to get a beer or wine while enjoying a walk on the beach or sunset view. Would never recommend this place for lunch or dinner.

The drive to The Mucky Duck is lovely. The parking at The Mucky Duck is terrible. At least they had one or two employees out in the parking lot trying to direct traffic around and around until a spot opened up. They did pretty well keeping everyone in order. Chose to eat inside, and we were seated promptly. Staff and... More

On our first visit to Sanibel Island, we had to visit the Mucky Duck. A good friend uses "Mucky Duck" as part of her email address and I always wondered the origin. It seems that this establishment was her stomping grounds many years ago and the thought of our being on Sanibel opened the flood gates for her memories. We... More

My wife's idea of a duck would be they're cute. Eat one? Never! Except, now, The Duck Fingers from Mucky Duck! Dang! They were good. So was lunch.

We found The Mucky Duck while exploring Captiva Island. A beautiful location. The sign said "English Pub" and the menu had Fish n Chips. Sadly the place is Mucky (Dirty in England) and the Fish n Chips are awful ! McDonalds chips and Fish Fingers. Overcooked !!! Our lunch went into the Bin ( English for Trash Can)
