Duck's served us some of the finest food I’ve had this year. Pictured is the seared tuna with black pepper we enjoyed as an app. It is also on their lunch and bar menus. The medium grilled breast of duck was breathtaking, as was our new daughter-in-law’s elk chops. It was distinctive in several other aspects as well. Duck’s is... More

I did not expect this to be at all like it was. The decor is elegant for a grille and bar. The server was outstanding and I had one of the best burgers I've had anywhere at any time. Also loved the steak fries - don't find those in many places. The burger is called "the best burger in town"... More

We are new to the area and this is right up the street from our house. Crab dip appetizer is a must, I could eat that everyday!!! Food is a little on the pricey side, but you pay for what you get. Definitely going back, maybe brunch?

We were in Jacksonville visiting my brother and we drove past here during hurricane mathew. We decided to go back to finish our night out. We rolled in and the bar tender working made the entire night! We did shotskis and generally had a blast. It's a local bar so we got to meet the "locals" and talked one into... More

My husband and I decided to use a gift card for this restaurant on our first-time visit. We were impressed by the menu and what it had to offer ahead of time. Upon arrival, we were seated and greeted within moments. Unfortunately, our server forgot about us and none of the other waitstaff seemed remotely concerned that we were seated... More

This place was Great, a little pricy - only because I can only eat a little bit! The food was awesome, my friend had the Pork Chop - outstanding. I ordered some beer battered Chicken Strips and they were Fabulous! The staff were so friendly and absolutely gorgeous... A must visit if you are there.

Went on a weekday night. It was not overly crowded, but service was a little on the slow side. The food was fresh, I had shrimp grits and my date had tuna. Great atmosphere for adults. It was a nice ,relaxing atmosphere.

Ducks is a excellent place for lunch or dinner. I recently took some friends there for dinner. The quality and variety of food was great. The service was excellent. And it's reasonably priced. Just don't pay any attention to the outside of the building. All their efforts were spent on the right things. Wonderful experience.

When you enter Ducks, you are presented with a choice. Turn right into the dining room & be treated to the finest dining experience in town. Turn left to the bar & have a great burger or chicken wings with a nice beer selection. The duck salad is excellent. The Osso Bucco is also very good. This is a great... More
