The Mucky Duck - This Captiva restaurant is right on the beach, and is modeled after a British pub for a unique island dining experience!
If you want the best direct views of the Gulf of Mexico on Captiva while you're dining out, then the Mucky is the place for you!
The sunsets are fabulous here, so make a plan to watch either before or after you eat.
They don't accept reservations, but that's okay, after parking your car, just go inside and give the hostess your name to put on their list. Then grab a drink, order some appetizers, and go sit outside at the picnic tables and listen to the live music ......... or go to the beach while you wait for your table.
They'll call out your name over the loudspeaker ........ so don't go too far!
The kids can run around or play the ring game ......... that's where you have to try to get a ring that is attached to the end of a string, to catch onto a hook on a post. It's a lot of fun!
The restaurant looks like a cozy pub inside, with wood-paneled walls ........ and lots of windows facing west to the beach.
Not all tables are at the window but you can still enjoy the view from the back of the restaurant, it's only about 3 tables deep.
For those who insist on sitting by a window, Mucky has a solution ..... they have a movable window that can be wheeled over to a back table!
Get their bacon-wrapped barbeque shrimp, a Captiva island specialty, either as an appetizer or main course ........ yum!!
The house specialty is Grouper Cafe de Paris. Grouper is a delicious mild, fluffy, white local fish you'll want to try and in this dish the grouper is baked in lemon, white wine, and Worcestershire and topped with butter and herbs.
Mucky Duck serves many more seafood dishes, plus chicken, steak, and pork chops for dinner
Check their daily pasta and seafood specials. I had a very tasty Pan-Seared Snapper topped with toasted almonds, red peppers, and garlic butter.
Some dishes, such as this Mahi with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream, come garnished with edible orchids.
Save room for dessert, even though Key Lime Pie is a specialty in Southwest Florida, I couldn't resist their Blueberry Sour Cream Pie ....... it's almost like a cheesecake.
Their lunch menu includes sandwiches, burgers, soups and salads along with seafood specialties. A kid's menu is also available.
Expect to pay between $17-39 for a dinner entree and $6-16 for a lunch entree ........... and of course, the view is priceless!
Lunch is served everyday from 11:30AM-3PM, and dinner from 5-9:30PM, except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
