I've enjoyed Ducks for many years now in an area that largely offers only chains or corporate dining. A mature atmosphere with two bars and cozy place to enjoy a great meal. Recommend reservations at peak times, and consider live Comedy Shows or dueling pianos. Call ahead and they accommodate groups really well in the side room Something different, local,... More

Great Menu, Great Service, Great Atmosphere. What is not to like at Duck's. By far this restaurant is Heads Above the COUNTLESS Chain eateries in Jacksonville. I recommend this place to all my friends when they are visiting.

Stopped by on an off season night and we were glad we were early because it filled up quickly. A very cosy place with stained glass windows and booths chandeliers that gave an air of privacy. A very adequate wine list started the evening off. My wife had the Cobb salad with crispy fried duck . A very fresh variety... More

Ate lunch on Friday Dec. 2nd with two other folks. Greeted warmly and placed our orders. One chicken sandwich and two burgers. I ordered my burger Medium rare as they grind their own beef and it was delicious. You have several options on what you may put on the burgers. Served hot, juicy and delicious. Ducks also has home made... More

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
