Ruddy Ducks is a favorite. It's a friendly place with great atmosphere. We sat outside on the water this time. Our food was delicious. The shrimp scampi linguine was so tasty and a large portion you could probably do a share. My favorite adult drink there is the fuzzy duck. It's delish!

Highly recommend. The food was great and our server, Natalie, was wonderful. Our party got a selection of different fish dishes and everyone liked everything. The prices were very reasonable.

I am always in search of a soft shell crab. They had a soft shell crab sandwich here, so I order that with out the bread. It was fabulous. 3 of my favorite things, soft shell crab bottle of beer on the water! And the waiter was also excellent. I really enjoyed this restaurant and would go back.
