We were warned that this might not be a great place to eat. Boy, were those warnings way off! Thank goodness we went there. We stopped into the Rogues Bar for a drink because all of the places on the wharf were really crowded. Got great service there and we were sent upstairs to the Blue Duck for dinner. Ordered... More

We went on New Years Eve Night and there were only about 6 people there and ourselves.There was no atmosphere in the restaurant which is not a good sign. We all had different dishes. I had the lamb steak with a bush mills sauce which was so bland it could have been anything. My son had the chicken and chorizo... More
