All in all it was a disappointment, because we thought we were going to a nice local place and really would enjoy ourselves. Although the food was SO SO the... More

Waitress was not friendly. I ordered fish and chips. The fish was chewy and jerky like. For some reason my chips were substituted with sweet potato fries, which is weird and not the standard at this restaurant. The waitress NEVER came back to ask how the food was, to refill the drinks, etc. The gentlemen clearing our plates noticed the... More

We ordered items off the menu, paid separately and no one complained. Most everyone order a wide variety of burgers along with sweet potato fries. The best I have tasted. One of the... More

Mad Duck is a great place to meet friends, watch sports games, and have a beer (variety of local made beers). There is a variety of appetizers, entrees to choose from, and the best bread pudding I've ever had!!!!

About the Duck
We are a family of seven friends who wanted to build a restaurant that values integrity over profits, quality over laziness, and our guests above all. When we first got the idea for the Duck we wanted to do it right, we wanted to do it simply, most of all we wanted to do what we love, work together and make great food. Our restaurant is our testament to what we think restaurants should be; fresh, friendly, and lively. Hope to see you soon, and often!
