About the Duck We are a family of seven friends who wanted to build a restaurant that values integrity over profits, quality over laziness, and our guests above all. When we first got the idea for the Duck we wanted to do it right, we wanted to do it simply, most of all we wanted to do what we love, work together and make great food. Our restaurant is our testament to what we think restaurants should be; fresh, friendly, and lively. Hope to see you soon, and often!

tasty local treat

I am always on the look out for pub type eatery's and this is a great fit. Good food and atmosphere. I especially like the sweet potato fries. Many great choices.

My two children I and went here to eat on a referral, and it was very good! Everything is sold a la carte, though, so it is pretty expensive. The interior is pretty dark; maybe similar to a pub? I was a little uncomfortable at first, but other children were in there too.

Great food! Their burgers were awesome. The place is on the smallish side, but very inviting. They also have patio dining.

Mad Duck is a very popular "in" place on the border of clovis and Fresno. Surpisingly, it is located in a shopping center. It isn't too large so you should get there early for a regular table...Menu is American casual and ale is drink of choice. Very noise for the old crowd and youngsters wouldn't do too well there either.... More

This restaurant has sports TV playing and after all it is NCAA BB time! We ate outside since it was a lovely evening. They have a nice beer on tap variety and also wine, if you partake. If you like sandwiches, burgers, they got 'em! I chose the 1/2 beet salad with a side of the spicy shrimp. Delicious! The... More

We go here quite often for a a quick bite after work. It can get quite loud if there is a popular game on TV. The food is good and they have a nice selection of beer.

Arrived at noon on a Monday and it was packed. I went for a chicken -- the smiley waitress said she ate and enjoyed (I always ask the staff). It wasn't memorable, but I felt fed. My friend had the Mad Duck burger, minus an ingredient or two, and left nothing behind. Might have had more fun if I were... More

It's a fun atmosphere. Service great and friendly. They have a great variety of beers, and we like that. We have enjoyed our visits there. We go at least once a month, and it is the bomb!!

First things first. Delicious hamburgers. No frozen, machine formed patties. Gently hand-formed, fresh meat patties cooked to perfection. Plain old hamburgers or some really interesting and tasty added ingredients. Service is quick, courteous and helpful. Small and noisy but who cares? Once seated its perfect from there on. And TV's with sports channels for those of us who travel for... More
