Reviews

Friendly and fast service. Great location on the water HOWEVER the food was definitely hit or miss. We loved our crab dip and it was a large portion. Our entrees left a lot to be desired. My husband's pecan flounder was dry and tasteless. Some of his rice was undercooked and some was overcooked. My shrimp scampi had decent flavor but ... read more

Fun Atmosphere, Good Food
The service we had was very good, as well as the food. I had the crab cake sandwich and my wife had the shrimp tacos, both very tasty. You can eat out on the waterfront; there was about a half hour wait for a table. The neighborhood is nice to walk around in and see the charter boats, fishing docks, etc.

Food was great. Had a view of the water. I got the catch of day(fried flounder) with sweet potato waffle fries & slaw. BEST sweet potato fries ever!! We were a party of 6, waited about 15 minutes for table. Service was in timely manner.

Good restaurant. I guess it was worth the wait.
First of all, there are not too many restaurant choices for dinner on a Sunday night. After a failed attempt to have dinner at the Sanitary Fisk Market & Restaurant, we decided to wait 50+ minutes for a table at the Ruddy Duck, and our meals were very good. The fried fish sandwich was enormous. About double the amount of fish I expec ... read more

The Ruddy Duck is on the water, in a row of waterfront restaurants. We were not expecting much; just enjoying the deck over the water. Then the drinks came. Delicious. Then the bruschetta.

Waited about an hour for a table but well worth the wait. There were five of us and we were greeted by the most pleasant server who had a great sense of humor.

Had to go at this a couple of times but they eventually got it right. A Good place.
Although this restaurant was recommended by a number of locals, unfortunately, some of the servings were not up to "par" -at least to my own 'buds." To start off with, the "Fun Carl" cocktail was awesome! Like a personalized (local) Bahama Mama For my appetizer, I ordered the Jalapeño Hush Puppies, which instead of having even a litt ... read more

Ate an early (before 6pm) dinner on April 29th. Food was good. Service was good. Only 2 areas need work.

Cannot beat the ambiance...it's on the water. The Hush puppies were good as was the burger. The Cioppino was not. It was awful. There was a handful of shrimp and a few mussels, no scallops, no squid, no crab. And the "fish" was in rectangles (??) and had been deep fried...maybe added later?? Dunno. No flavor... tasteless...only like ... read more

Food was excellent but the service was definitely lacking. We sat for at least 10 minutes before we were even greeted by our waitress. I know they were a bit busy but the other tables around us were being greeted and served much more promptly.

Just a very nice experience all around.
Group of four for lunch. Seated outside as requested. Service was very attentive and friendly. The food is always much better than one might expect. Mahi grill fish sandwich, fries, slaw were all excellent. The slaw was a bit unusual but in a positive way. And, the cucumber and onion salad was also excellent. It's just a hard place t ... read more

Very disappointed to find catfish served on the seafood platter. I guess expecting actual fish from the sea when dining on a dock at a seafood restaurant was too much for this seaside eatery.
Luna Monroe via google.com - Apr 20, 2022
Pretty good seafood
We often stay in the area, and going to the Ruddy Duck is something we try to do on each trip. This past weekend we were there on Friday night. We were there pretty early but there was still a 1 hour 10 minute wait. The service was good, and everyone was friendly and helpful. But the food seemed just average. My hubby's fish was defi ... read more

The best fish sandwich I have ever had. That is really saying something since I eat them a lot.

Good atmosphere, friendly staff, good portion size, price was comparable to other places in the area. Food was good, however; the fries were barely warm, slaw was just ok. Overall I was satisfied with our experience. I would eat there again.
