What a great find. We loved the food choices, the drink menu and the service. Food was inventive with amazingly complex flavours that screamed "give me more" The drinks were superb and mixed with knowledge and passion. You have to try this hip place of your in Milwaukee.

We have been to Odd Duck several times and EVERY time is outstanding! From grilled octopus to stuffed squash blossoms to pork belly the menu is exciting and different each time. So fun to try creative and fantastic food. Going again next week, can't wait to see what is on the menu this time.

Wife and I spent a night in Milwaukee. Went to an excellent Thomas Hart Benton exhibit at the Art Museum, followed by a free concert in Cathedral Square park, and off to our reservation at Odd Duck. I choose this restaurant from among the many which were well reviewed on Yelp mainly because we didn't want fancy, classic or over... More

We went in not really knowing what to expect. We ordered the Duck and the Lamb with the Wisconsin cheese reserve as an appetizer. The portions were medium to small, but it was about the experience of the food that made the difference. If you can think of that scene from Ratatouille where the food combinations took him to another... More

Great small plate Tapas bar. A Lot of unique twists and original recipes. Big list of custom cocktails. Large selection of top self booze. Waiter was friendly and helpful.

Based on the quality of the food,and the creativity of the menu,this would probably be considered one of the top 3 restaurants in Milwaukee. But then there is the noise problem. The eatery is so noisy that it is difficult to talk to someone sitting next to you, and one must be a lip-reader to communicate with someone across the... More

Great bar, wine, beer and cocktails are outstanding and unfortunately that was the best thing they have going on at the Odd Duck. It is a good idea to make reservations here even on a Sunday night it was very busy in the dinning room. We ordered the Filipino Seafood Stew "not bad", Seared Scallops "tasted like burnt butter", Red... More

We've been coming here occasionally for a few years. Food and service has always been outstanding, until tonight. Twice our waiter " forgot" what we ordered. Cleared empty glasses and plates and didn't ask if we wanted anything else. Poor form. Expect more from one of the top rated restaurants in town.

If you have any further details (name of server, date you dined) feel free to email me directly at melissa@oddduckrestaurant.com. That way I can follow up... More

I can here after picking my girlfriend up from the airport and we enjoyed both the drinks and food. It is an excellent choice if you are a vegetarian or just want good food. We had a couple of cocktails before our food and they were divine. It is a very fun and lively atmosphere.

Hadn't been to Odd Duck in more than a year...so many other great places to eat closer to home. But we're not going to let that much time go by again. They graciously fit us in as walk-ins on a Saturday night, and proceeded to hit us with two different plates of food that were so good I was scraping... More
