Description: 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!

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

Although it is a small place packed between two other eateries, The Mad Duck IS the place to go for great food, a wide variety of drinks and sports playing on multiple TVs. We got there about 5:45pm and much to our surprise, Happy Hour runs until 6pm every day and then starts again at 10pm! We both got beers... More

Happened to go to Mad Duck while in Clovis. Found it on TripAdvisor, and boy oh boy, we were not disappointed! We went on a Friday night around 6pm, and had to wait about 10 minutes, but it was worth the short wait! The food was excellent and a fun variety. I had the beet salad and mac and cheese,... More

I go here a couple times a month, sometimes on business, but a lot with my kids who like the Backyard Burger. You can order a side of tater tots and fries. The large is enough to feed an army. They also have really good salads, turkey burgers and their deserts are incredible. You won't be disappointed checking Mad Duck... More

Great place to go and have good appetizers, etc. Been here a few times and always try to get there early like around 5.30- 6pm. After that it is busy and getting a good seat is tuff. The selection of draft beer they serve is awesome. So far not disappointed with the food, just disappointed if we get there a... More

I love The Mad Duck. I have been here four times since last year, and ALWAYS make a point to stop by when doing business in Fresno. They always have some great local beer on tap, sports on the TV, and a great atmosphere. There is indoor and outdoor dining. One note: If you have a group of more than... More

Late lunch here today with friends. It's always hard to get a table to eat here. Most people That come here are drinking and take up about 70% of the Tables. The food here is pretty good, however it's just to crowed and loud. They need to double there space and cater a bit more to the foodies. I know... More
