To give a little background, my family and I have gone to Cape May, NJ every July for 30 years. We have seen everything, done everything, and know the place better than our own home town. For some reason, however, we had never tried the Black Duck and decided this was the year to do it. We made 7:30pm reservations... More

Went on the advice of innkeeper. Good advice. Although i found it pricey( $30-42 per entree per person) food was delicious. Best crab cakes I've ever had. Seating is a bit cramped but nice relaxing ambience. Staff are very attentive--they came by about 20 times (more water. Checking on us. Scooping away crumbs...) I was surprised that they have no...

The staff did their jobs admirably. Our server knew every item of the day by heart flawlessly. The establishment is impeccably kept including everything at the table. The chef is very creative that should please many and make a few that aren't so adventurous wish for a burger. BYOB helped keep the bill inline. Though I gave only four stars... More

My wife and I really enjoy the Black Duck. The food is outstanding and the ambiance is comfortable. We love the crab cakes (we constantly look for crabcakes in restaurants and these are among to top three we have had anywhere in the world). There are a number of other dishes we have enjoyed but we always come back for... More

I have to say one of the Best meals I have experienced thanks to Chef Chris. The flavors were so fresh, from the greens, the heirloom tomatoes and of course my soft shell crabs. I had the crab as an app with heirloom tomatoes, garlic white wine...to die for.. It was so good I asked can I get that as... More

This is the first time we ate at the Black Duck and we weren't disappointed. My wife had crab cakes which were excellent - loaded with crab meat, not fillers. I had shrimp with grits and chirizo sausage - excellent. They early bird specials too, 5 - 5:30 - 3 courses for $25.00. We would definitely go back. Enjoy !!

We attended a Birthday Party for a friend in the Private Dining room of this Restaurant. The Decor is chic and comfortable. The waitress was very attuned to the needs of the guests. The food was served hot at one time in a beautiful presentation from Blue Crab Spring Rolls to the array of entrees which included the Grilled Aged... More

My husband and I dined at the Black Duck on Saturday night. The food was amazing!! The caprese salad with the homemade basil sorbet was so flavorful. My husband had the chilled tomato fennel soup with lobster. Our entrees were a Filet with truffle potato puree, sautéed mushrooms, asparagus & finished with a sauce bernaise & sautéed Soft Shell Crabs... More
