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

I'm not sure how long it's been open, I must have driven past it hundreds of times during my summers in Cape May - finally made a reservation one night and went in. Asian-fusion inspired menu, very creative yet simple and very fresh food. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, but don't take that to mean this isn't a fine... More

Unlike some of the other recent reviews, we enjoyed a top shelf experience at Black Duck on July 2, 2014. NEVER felt rushed. Impeccable service from Michael. Outstanding food- especially the SAUCES! We were using our assorted fresh baked breads to consumme every smidge of the many accompliments and courses. Everything was outstanding and quantities were plentiful! Yes- there is... More

A very nice fine dining place without the Cape May parking problems. The crab cakes, flat iron steak and scallops are terrific. The chocolate mousse for desert is also great. They also have $25 three course Early Bird specials until 5:30 PM that are outstanding. This is a BYOB but Sunset Liquors is directly across the street and has a... More
