My family chooses Wild Duck for dinner every time we're in Eugene. The kids love the kid's menu, all the cool duck memorabilia and decor, the duck ride toy, and especially the opportunity to choose their little rubber duck to bring home. The adults love the excellent food and beverage choices! During the warm weather they have nice outdoor seating... More

What a fun restaurant to serve as the first stop for my son, an avid Ducks fan, on our trip to Eugene. He was literally in duck heaven and this fun decor was awesome! Food was also delicious!!

We were in Eugene for about a day during our 9 day trip to Oregon. We asked the hotel staff where we were staying for a restaurant recommendation for lunch. She recommended the Wild Duck Cafe. It was located on the University of Oregon campus and walking distance from our hotel. The restaurant itself was neat - cool sports memorabilia... More

Went here prior to going to a wedding with some friends. All of us ordered turkey BLTS which were delicious; however it took a considerable amount of time for us to receive our food considering how un-busy the restaurant was. We're from NY so everything on the west coast (generally) seems to run at a slower pace, but BLTs don't... More

Enjoyed this place greatly. Service was very good, menu offers a good variety of choices. Not just typical pub choices, they've gone the extra mile too offer a step up. Plenty of seating in a sports decor setting. Only downfall of this place is no free parking adjacent to establishment, and the meters are money hungry!! However, it's worth the... More

This fun restaurant is right across the street from the Matthew Knight Arena, the home of Duck basketball and many concerts and events. The main campus is just a short stroll away. The food is very good and the menu offers everything from appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Prices are reasonable and the full bar offers many good drink options. Great... More

The Wild Duck has great service, great wine and beer, while being dog friendly outside. They have a very good happy hour menu. We enjoyed the "Wimpy Burger". It is small but very tasty. Great place for a summer afternoon stop.

Walked here before a concert. Good beer. Good food. Service slow, we were expecting to take awhile. But the service was very slow. My wife went to the bar outside to get a beer. Instead of waiting. We left cash for the bill, instead of waiting for the waiter to process a charge, even though someone else in our party... More

Walked in expecting a college bar with typical bar food and was very pleasantly surprised. We had a party of six and all really enjoyed their meal. I had the Gorgonzola pasta and it was really good. Many places would over power the fresh pasta with too much sauce, but it was not the case here. The flavors were well... More

Decent food. Burgers seem to be the main focus. Also, alcohol. Good beers. Service was slow, but we went in the middle of the afternoon at an off time. Loved the decor. Friendly people. I'd eat here again.
