A recent article in our local newspaper stated Duckies had the best chowder on the Central Coast. Well, we decided we wanted to see if it was better than another local competitor on the coast. Both of the Manhattan and their White chowder was delicious....More

The Clam chowder is the house specialty. Had a fish taco. Delicious. You order at the counter. Beer and sodas available. Beach ambience, pleasant staff and prompt service. Clean décor and parking out the door. .

We eat here several times when we visit the coast. I love the chowder and their salads. Topping the salad with blackened fish is delicious. Not thrilled with the fish and chips as I don't care for their breading, but the fish itself is good....More

Duckie's is one of those beach town places to eat that can be good one day and not so good the next. We have eaten at Duckie's a number of times and each time the food is a bit different. Chowder is okay, thought it...More

Duckie's has an outdoor seating are, which is more along the lines of a high bar top table/counter, vs a normal table. When we have been there have seen several people with their pets.
