From first bite to last always a treat. Imaginative, flavorful and ultra fresh... We usually choose daily specials but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The latest summer salad (special) is amazing: heirloom tomatoes, Gorgonzola, watermelon cubes, red onion, basil sorbet & a fresh fig. It may not sound like something you'd whip up, but trust Chef...

My travel companion literally stumbled upon The Back Duck today and we reservations for this evening. She ordered watermelon and heirloom tomato salad with Gorgonzola cheese and a scoop of basil sorbet. She found it both refreshing and delicious. I had primo lobster bisque. She had duck with sweet potato risotto and I had crab cakes as our respective entrees.... More

I was given a gift certificate to come here, not knowing anything about the place, 7 years ago. My husband and I have been back every year on our anniversary with the exception of the year I was pregnant, and the following year when I had a newborn. The only reason we do not come here more often is because... More

Went here last month (vacationing in Wildwood) and stopped by the Black Duck as we've wanted to for so long. My wife had the Honey Roast Half Duck and I had the Hanger Steak. Both were very very good. We started with the Stilton Salad which we thoroughly enjoyed. We both love roquefort, gorganzola and blue cheeses... but I think... More

The menu at the Black Duck looks wonderful. However, almost every time I go there, I order the crab cakes because they are so very good and full of wonderful crab. We only go about once a month but maybe we should go more often so I can try something else on the menu. We had friends with us last... More

This restaurant just never disappoints! This is an essential Cape May restaurant! The service, wait staff, and hostess we're welcoming, friendly, and anticipated whatever we would need. Our 7-person party ran the gamut of entrees after the yummy Pu-Pu Platter for Two (x 2): Salmon, Halibut Special, Crab Cakes, Tuna, and Hangar Steak were all cooked to perfection. We only... More

This restaurant was ok. My wife enjoyed her salmon. My son enjoyed part of his rib steak but the other part was very fatty. I had the surf and turf which I did not like. Our salads were excellent. Service was very good. We had a rocky table they couldn't fix. It is a good restaurant but for this price... More

I've just returned from my 15th vacation in Diamond Beach NJ and one of many repeat visits to Black Duck for the early bird menu. In my opinion this is the best value for outstanding food in the region. I love the fact that we can bring our own wine and the choices for the early bird menu are always... More
