    the Mucky Duck: great surf and turf

    by domenicococozza Updated Oct 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Mucky Duck's a great little place right on the beach, with exceptional seafood. Grouper, red snapper, yellow fin tuna ad infinitem. Lunchtimes, there's a terrific oyser bar with endless salads. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There are always specials off the menu and it's worth the couple of minutes to hear them read out.

    Favorite Dish: Favourite dish has to be their surf and turf - small rock lobster with an 8oz rare beefsteak, accompanied by curly q fries.

    The Old Captiva House: Elegant

    by SammyRN Written Jul 12, 2007

    Absolutely wonderful, wonderful food/service/atmosphere, you name it. We enjoyed a succulent pecan encrusted mahi-mahi, veal chop stuffed with gouda and rosemary stuffing and creamy blue crab chowder. Our server was attentive, the atmosphere was relaxing and intimate with dim lighting and candles and an excellent pianist who was very open to suggestions. We also enjoyed the examples of J.N. Ding Darling's artwork that were hung around the room. $66 for dinner for 2.

    Queenie's Homemade Ice Cream: I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream

    Almost impossible to find at night, Queenie's Homemade Ice cream can be found right across from the Key Lime Bistro in the little coffee shop. Absolutely delicious ice cream, we especially enjoyed the Key Lime pie, Roasted Coconut, and Black Raspberry with chocolate chunks. $3/scoop.

    Key Lime Bistro: Charming!

    Small, local, friendly with cheerful colors, great food and excellent service. We enjoyed their Crab Spring rolls and Pesto Lobster pasta while listening to the live band. It has a nice indoor/outdoor feel to it and was definitely easy to get to and find from our Inn. Dinner for two: $40.

    Trapper's: Not quite local

    by SammyRN Written Jul 12, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trapper's isn't quite local and it isn't quite international... it's a nice combo of both. While they do serve the typical local grouper, crab, etc. they also have a fabulous Pan-Asian/Pacific Rim selection. Classy, modern decor, excellent service and great prices. For approx. $25, two of us had an excellent, filling lunch.

    Island Cow: Moo Cow.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clean, great prices, excellent food, convenient location, definitely very popular. We enjoyed the crab cake burger and gumbo for about $25 for two people. Definitely want to get there early as it is quite popular and the tables fill up fast, especially the outdoor ones.

    The Crows Nest: Good Bar Grub

    by SammyRN Written Jul 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were there the night of the NASCRAB Races and had so much fun. We thoroughly enjoyed the Grouper and Coconut Shrimp, approx price: $49 for two people. It's a dark bar-type atmosphere, casual dress but absolutely a riot when things get rolling. We were there during the family NASCRAB races and after entering a crab for $2, joined in the revelry.

    The Mucky Duck: The Mucky Duck

    by goingsolo Written May 11, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Mucky Duck is another Captiva institution. It is one the west side, facing the Gulf of Mexico, and the sunsets that can be viewed here are one of the main reasons to visit.

    The food is pretty standard fare, with a lot of seafood, chicken or steak choices. You won't find any ducks here, except, unfortunately, for on the menu. There are a few appetizers made with duck, such as the duck fingers. Desserts are supposed to be great, especially the key lime pie, but I can't imagine anything better than a piece of cake at the Bubble Room, which is just down the street.
