First time visit as a result of favorable recommendations by a local. So we entered with high expectations and our expectations were NOT met. The atmosphere was less than pleasant and one of the major distraction was noise. Very noisy place and not very relaxing. The food was less than average. Sausage was very greasy, potatoes rather plain, the eggs... More

We had a good breakfast there last year, but the lunch was terrible this year. They do not know how to make reubens. First you need REAL corned beef. Not thinly sliced beef that was dry, and had little sauerkraut. Sandwich cost $9.95 and came with ! side. Iced tea $2, tax !0%, plus tip came to $30 for two... More

New ownership had not maintained excellent tastes and unique sides. Cucumber /onion salad had no onion and was heavy with strong, cheap vinegar. Prices had increased since our last visit. The food was O.K. but not the special experience of the past.

I am so very sorry you weren't happy with your recent experience. Yours was the first complaint we had about the cucumber onion salad being strong and we immediately made a new batch. It had been made with too much of the vinegar that has always been used in the recipe. Our prices have all remained the same (against the... More

On a recent trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama, we went to breakfast at Duck’s Diner, Orange Beach. I spotted a sample of the special – banana wrapped in French Toast with a pecan, butter, rum sauce – when I walked in the front door, so that was my choice; very good, but could not eat the entire serving. My husband... More

This is a local place and is excellent. I recommend this place to everyone. The locals hang out here and that says something. Enjoy your time here.

Very disappointed that one of our favorite breakfast spots has taken a dive on a severe slope. Have eaten at Ducks several times each year we come down here and have never had a bad meal. I guess the law of averages caught up with us or perhaps it's the fact that there are new owners. I went for breakfast... More

My family of 4 decided to give this place a try after seeing the high ratings. Sad to say we will not return. Small table's and chairs made for cramped eating. The food was way over priced for the quality. We had 3 omelets, a breakfast sandwich, and 4 beverages and our bill was $58!! Cafeteria food for steakhouse prices.

I am very sorry you weren't satisfied with your breakfast when you ate with us. I wish you had said something while you were here and we would have tried to make things right. Again I apologize and hope you otherwise enjoyed your trip to Orange Beach. More

The reviews from "taterbug41" and "Angelia D" are completely wrong!! I was dining at Duck's that day, and you all were way to loud for a breakfast crowd. If I had to hear one more of your stories, I wouldn't have been as polite as the owner!! I thought that Ms. Michelle handled the situation gracefully. And if I remember... More

I read the menu and decided that I couldn't eat all that it offered. So I ordered a side of corn beef hash and two eggs. I was asked how I wanted my hash. I got it well browned, grilled. It was very good, not salty. My husband got the same with a biscuit. He was very happy. The other... More
