Captain Chuck-A-Muck’s

chuck a muck 1Captain Chuck-A-Muck’s on the Jones Creek is a great laid back destination for hungry boaters.  They have a relaxed atmosphere and many boaters pull into their dock for a nice lunch or dinner.  Stunning views of Jones Creek will accompany your meal. You can eat on the deck or inside.

Jimmy Buffett is often playing in the background at this casual spot—the food and drinks are served on paper products.

Hush puppies are not provided for free, but we always order some while waiting.  They are filled with sweet onions and deep fried.  I ordered (and recommend) the crab cake sandwich boat. Made fresh daily with three kinds of crabmeat; it comes with a side of fries and coleslaw.  Another hot item on the menu is the homemade crab soup. You also can’t go wrong with fried shrimp which are lightly breaded.  The entrees give you the choice of making it a boat or a dinner—the boat comes with fries and coleslaw; the dinner is served with your choice of two vegetables. They carry seasonal items such as oysters and soft shell crab in the winter.

Chuck-A-Muck’s also serves Angus burgers and Doughtie’s barbecue for those folks who don’t eat seafood.   For vegetarians the best option is a large salad with no meat. The salads have iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, and croutons. You could have onion rings, or those hush puppies as a vegetarian appetizer.

For the 12 and under group, they offer a Little Deckhands menu with several options such as fried shrimp, chicken tenders, corn dog and grilled cheese. The kids’ items all come with one side, and a drink.  Kids get crayons to color on the paper tablecloth when seated.

To finish your meal, I recommend the Key lime pie. There is also an amazing brownie nut sundae which is large enough to share. Chuck-A-Muck’s has a full bar plus their famous Jamaican jet fuel—rum mixed with fruit juices; the owner has been known from time to time to serve this drink while wearing a jet-fuel mask.

Captain Chuck-A-Muck’s hours are Wednesday and Thursday 5:00 to 9:00 pm, Friday and Saturday 11:30 am to 9:00 pm and Sundays 12:00 to 8:00 pm. Parties of seven or more are advised to call ahead.
