It wouldn't be right to be on the island without a big pot of steamed shrimp and crabs. We chose to let Captain Puddle Ducks do the cooking for us this year and we were not disappointed. We ordered the Ms. Miranda and were surprised at the amount of food received. Besides the quantity, the quality was equal to any... More

I have nothing bad to say about this place. I was introduced to Ocracoke Island 2 years ago and this wonderful steamer pot . I look forward to every year because this place is amazing. Easy cleanup and the food is so fresh. If your staying on Ocracoke , give yourself a treat and order from Capt. Puddle ducks.

Our family rented a house on Ocracoke Island for our 40th wedding anniversary. We decided to go to Ocracoke because we had been there four summers in a row when our kids were small. We love Ocracoke Island. Upon arriving and after unloading, we looked at all of the handy information pamphlets and menus that were supplied in the house... More

This was on our list of Must-Have dinners when we returned to Ocracoke. The seafood steamer pot was delicious in 2013 and it was delicious again in 2015! We had the exact same meal as the last time - the O'Cocker with added andouille sausage. Again it was delivered piping hot by the same boy, now 2 years older! Again... More

Best meal on the island. We couldn't decide where to go one night and it was getting late. We called and less then a hour later we had our steam pot. With a large group this was the best and least stressful meal we had all week. Cant wait to go back next year because I will spending the next... More

We really enjoyed Capt. Puddleducks! After a long day at the beach it was so nice have a steamer pot delivered right to our door and ready to eat! Everything was perfect and devoured it all. Just wish we had found this sooner.

Without a doubt, hands down the best meal on the island. The sausage, crabs, corn,lobsters, shrimp, all fantastic. We also got a lot more than we paid for. The Old Bay on everything was great. Mo' hotta---Mo' betta. At least in my opinion. A must when in the OBX!!!!

This was our second trip to Ocracoke and as soon as my kids found out we were going back, this was the first thing they wanted to eat! We had crabs, shrimp, potatoes and corn and it was really great. We waited until our last night so we could console ourselves! Def going to be part of our tradition!

This is the second year we have had food delivered from here, both experiences were great. The crab and shrimp were tasty but my favorite part of the meal was the corn. Definitely worth trying at least one night during your stay in Ocracoke!
