“Awesome food- why did we wait so long to try it ?!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Drive by this place everyday and finally stopped in for dinner. Wow what a shock- it was sensational ! The dive burger is best I've ever had and duck fries must have cocaine sprinkled on top cause you get hooked immediately ! Our server Julia was adorable and hostess tabitha equally so. Gonna go back as much as possible and try everything on the menu!!!

“Great place to grab a microbrew and some great food.”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Many of the food establishments in Malibu are what I would refer to as posh. Duck Dive is not one of these places. A gastropub tucked in next to a Pavilions supermarket you might easily pass it by, but that would be a mistake. The food here is great and very affordable. I love the burgers, duck fat fries and the mac-n-cheese. I have been here three times over the last few months and service has always been attentive, friendly and makes you feel welcome.

I don't live in Malibu or I would frequent this more often. If I'm there around for lunch or dinnertime this place is always near the top of my list. Worth a visit, you won't regret it.

“Low key, real drinks, great food”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We were looking for a place with a full bar and good food; Duck Dive was a great call. With broad beer choices and some interesting twists on old favorite drinks, Duck provide great libations and the calamari and Duck Dive burger were terrific. The spicy rum old fashion was good as well. Walk in, relax and order whatever; this will be a nice experience. Service was personal and terrific.
