From the outside this restaurant looks like a house on the road and parking was a little restricted. The decor inside was bright but the tables a bit close together. Our waitress was incredibly helpful but not too over familiar. The food was very very good, the menu not over lengthy and the... read more

My husband and I have a summer home in cape may and we had tried almost every restaurant in cape may. I have to say, this is now my favorite hands down!! Excellent seafood dishes, crab cakes the best! Shrimp and grits delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant, outstanding gourmet food, excellent service and a welcoming relaxed fine dining atmosphere.... More

Black Duck has a 3 course, $25 menu - salad, entrée and dessert. I had Salmon and it was great, my two companions had Flat Iron Steak and Crab Cakes. They raved about their choice. Very good liquor store across the street makes it easy to have some wine or beer with your meal.

Had the opportunity to eat here for the first time and the food was very good along with the staff. We were there on a Friday evening in April (off season) so they were not that busy. I would recommend ro others .

We go here whenever we visit Cape May. Excellent Salmon. Early Bird will not disappoint (although you MIGHT feel a bit like Morty Seinfeld.) menu selection is not,extensive but is decent. Prices what you would expect at a nice restaurant at the shore. Seating is a bit tight.

I had a friend from Delaware come to celebrate the beginning of the summer season, (2014) with me and was excited to try The Black Duck for our little adventure. I totally enjoyed thIs little place. The food and service were awesome. I look forward to having more wonderful meals this season.

Not a great experience. We waited so long for our dinner. The first course was not great we were hoping our dinner would change our minds. Well it was worse. If you are going to have an Asian Flair you should know how to not make everything taste like Chinese food and salty without any thought to each dish. Very... More

I am a good cook and appreciate good food. Kudos to the Chef Hubert! We've been there three times and have been delighted each time the sautéed crab was definitely lump crab with a delicate sauce. Yum!!

The Black Duck was a great place to eat. The restaurant is very simply decorated, but you have the feel of a beach house. The food was great, try the pumpkin squash soup, wow ! It is a bit pricey, however, for a nice quiet night out it is well worth it. Only a short walk from Washington mall.

Let me just say this up front: With a couple of adjustments, this could be one of my favorite restaurants in Cape May. That said, we’ve been wanting to try Black Duck on Sunset for a while now, and we were in town a couple of weeks ago, and decided to check it out. It’s BYOB, which we love, because... More
