We cruise the ICW and always find the Ruddy Duck for lunch.
Mooring the boat at the dock behind the restaurant is easy and convenient.
Really good food at decent prices.
Friendly staff and always busy.
We'll be back soon.

We recently had lunch at the Ruddy Duck Tavern. I enjoyed the fish sandwich, which was a very generous size. It was made with large pieces of broiled Mahi Mahi topped with lettuce and locally-grown tomatoes. There were several choices of sides, and I had the cole slaw -- tasty, but a bit runny. My husband had the crab cake sandwich, and while the taste was good, he said there was a good bit of filler, rather than any large chunks of crab. Our server was friendly and helpful.

Love eating at this restaurant! Menu is varied, fish is fresh, service is friendly, prices are moderate and atmosphere is fun. Couldn't ask for more, right on the water! Very crowded over the summer months so call for reservations.

I wont say it was bad but it sure wasn't up to what we were expecting. I got grilled mahi and steamed veggies. The mahi was great, the veggies were no where near cooked. She got grilled shrimp, they were cold. For the cost, we were expecting a little better.
