There were four of us. We stopped in for some chicken wings and ended up staying for three hours playing shuffleboard. The prices were good on the drinks. We left before the younger crowds came in. Great place for us in our 50s.

Doesn't go with the whole "Bavarian" theme of the rest of the town, but it's a nice laid back atmosphere. The whiskey beans are fabulous!

There was nearly no one when we went there for dinner. I wouldn't say it fits the town theme in any way. We got great service but the guy had little else to do. Dinner was great, I had ribs and they were just coming off the smoker. And full bar.

I'm not really sure who all was the clientele, but I can say we had a blast here. It's wicked dive-y, but I'm into that sort of thing, and so are my friends. We were approached by some questionable characters, but in a non-threatening way. We really enjoyed ourselves. It's definitely not for everyone though.

We read a review of this restaurant where the reviewer was upset by the "dive bar" atmosphere. We like dive bars so we had to try it out. Admittedly, we only drank so I cannot comment on the food. The bar is sort of a dive bar but not real 'divey". The bar tender was very friendly and made good... More

Arrived for a couple of beers. The bar is down the stairs from the Watershed restaurant(great oysters). Really happy to find a sports pub in the area. There are a lot of bars but not many for sports. It was also really cool to have a Oregon Ducks game on live and not to have too many dirty husky or... More

We always stop at Ducks and Drakes on our visits to Leavenworth. Jesse, one of the bar tenders is our favorite! Good drinks and good food too!

I want to like Ducks and Drakes and I kind of do, but I wish they would dim the lights and soften things up a bit. It is a great location in the lower level and the food and service are good. Just is not quite the pub atmosphere that I wish it were. So much potential. I do like... More

The sign announced world famous fish and chips, so we went. We got a great outside table, clean, and a waiter right away. I went to the WC, which took me through a basement like dive bar from the 1970's. Where is the upkeep? Do something better with this space! It was so starling, that my male friend and I... More

We really enjoyed the outdoor seating area. It is down some stairs and off the main street. It was nice to unwind a bit before re-joining the crowds. The food is nothing special, but the service was good.
