Ate and Duckies twice in 2 days. The menu was simple. Fried or grilled fish with fries or salad. And steamed clams. The place was pleasant and clean and the food was great and inexpensive. Very friendly crew. The shrimp Louie was perfect.

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.
