I heard a lot of great things from friends who had visited. The restaurant was very popular so expect a wait. The food is pretty trendy and I wasn't too sure of what I was ordering. A unique experience.

You wouldn't know it from the outside, but very good food. I especially love the sliders, wedge salad, and of course, the duck fat fries. The owners are very nice and helpful

Duck fat has become our local "go-to" since moving to OP 5 years ago. Delicious fries, fantastic beer menu to utilize as chaser to their amazing Bloody Mary. Burgers are top quality, Reuben sandwich is hands down the best in the area. In fact, the best I've had anywhere. And the fries. I'm not even a fry person...but those...dangerous.

The best thing about this place is that it seems to be a place for locals where you feel right at home. The burgers and fries are excellent and the service is very good. Would I live nearby, I would make this place my water hole for the atmosphere and warm feeling. There is a nice bar and plenty more.... More

A member of my party highly recommended this place, and initially everything was fine. The service was decent, the drink I ordered slightly below average but not poor review worthy... and then the horrible stomach cramping started after eating the truffle fries. Don't get me wrong, they tasted good. However, after about 20 minutes of snacking on them, my stomach... More

Duckfat Tavern and Grill is the perfect setting to gather for tasty food and a large variety of beverages. This Tavern offers indoor and outdoor seating where you can enjoy good food from a wide menu selection while socializing with friends or a quaint dinner for two.

We had a family party in the side room (to the right of the bar) and it was a nice venue. There is a bar in the room and we had our own dedicated bartender/server. The room seats dozens and I would urge anyone to consider it for an office party, reunion or family party.
