M.R. Ducks Celebrates 35 Years in Business

If you have visited Ocean City, Maryland, you’ve most likely spotted someone wearing the world-famous M.R. Ducks tee shirt. Each year a renowned wildlife artist has been commissioned to paint the design for the current year, which over the years has become a collector’s item for M.R. Ducks patrons. This year, the famous M.R. Ducks tee shirt—designed by Art LaMay—celebrates 35 years!

Lloyd and Gail Lewis opened the well-known M.R. Ducks gazebo bar (without a name) in the 1980s for the convenience of the Talbot Inn guests and charter fishermen returning to the pier at the end of the day. The bar became a watering hole not only for guests of the Inn, but for locals and visitors to Ocean City as well.

As the first season came to a close, the name M.R. Ducks was chosen. The name comes from a duck hunter’s poem about two duck hunters in a duck blind, having the following conversation: “M.R. Ducks (them are ducks), M.R. Not (them are not), O.S.A.R. (oh, yes they are), C.M. Wings (see them wings), L.I.B. (well I’ll be), M.R. Ducks (them are ducks). Eventually, tee shirts were printed and sold from the dock office, with the shirts stored in leftover beer flats and a cigar box for a cash register.

M.R. Ducks retail now features a full line of clothing depicting the great outdoors, which is sold in with five locations: three in Ocean City, two in Myrtle Beach and you can also purchase M.R. Ducks Apparel online at MRDucks.com.

The M.R. Ducks Bar and Grille continues to be a comfortable and relaxing spot over the bay to gather with friends and enjoy the ever popular “Chug-a-Duck,” M.R. Ducks crab dip, or the signature wings. You might even hear a tall (fish) tale or two and catch an unforgettable sunset while listening to great entertainment. 

Located at 311 Talbot Street, the M.R. Ducks flagship location has expanded to include the boats of the Talbot Street Pier. Search for buried treasure aboard the Duckaneer Pirate Ship or enjoy an afternoon flounder fishing on the Happy Hooker. You can even learn about local marine life on the Assateague Adventure or the Assateague Explorer while taking in the beautiful views on the Sinepuxent Bay. The OC Rocket rounds out the fleet, offering an oceanfront speedboat ride with the chance to see dolphins and the opportunity to view Ocean City from a different perspective!

A lot has changed in Ocean City over the last 35 years, but M.R. Ducks continues to be a family-owned and -operated establishment with something to offer the entire family! You can come stay and play right on Talbot Street!
