Fabulous, creative meal with excellent service. The atmosphere was relaxed and not stuffy at all for the high quality of food they serve. Plus, you can't beat a BYO.

Maybe because I'm a great cook myself, it's hard for me to truely and thoroughly enjoy a meal at most restaurants.... Black Duck's chef is outstanding! I had a special: duck breast, fig, jam, roasted fall vegetables. All were done to unique perfection and were absolutely melt in your mouth delicious. I'm still swooning!! Warming: not all the table locations... More

In a town with a lot of good restaurants, this is one of our favorites. I had a seafood special on our last visit that was my best meal of the week. A little away from the hustle and bustle of the center of Cape May, the Black Duck is worth a visit.

I had always heard great things about the Black Duck on Sunset. So, I made the reservation and we had an absolutely fabulous meal! My husband had... More

Dropped in early, praying they would have an opening, and the staff was nice enough to let us sit at a table that was not in the main room. Totally ok with me! The food was wonderful, big portions. Had a salad with pecans, figs, arugula, and shredded cheese that was huge and awesome. No dessert because I was stuffed.... More

I enjoy dining at the Black Duck every time I visit Cape May. The restaurant is in a very nice building with beautiful gardens. There is parking- something always handy there. The dining room is clean and contemporary. The front of the house staff is very welcoming and friendly. They are attentive yet not intrusive. Joanne and Patty have a... More

We have spent part of our summer in Cape May for the last 40 years. Some restaurants have come and gone but Black Duck had been one of our favorites. The food quality is always excellent both the seafood and meats. We keep on forgetting from year to year how generous the portions tend to be and we always have... More

My bride and I enjoyed the Early Bird Dining Special served from 5:00 to 5:30 pm. Three courses for $ 25, a great deal. Soup or salad for the first course, about 5 entrée items, I had the Crab cakes ( very, very good), she the hanger steak (cooked perfectly medium rare. Service was friendly. Highly recommended.
