Recently had dinner here while visiting relatives in the area. The restaurant is an old barge I think and sits right on the river. It has a real old feel to it and a nice, pleasant atmosphere. Had a cheeseburger that was not at all memorable. This seems like a great place to have a few drinks and watch a... More

Westporters have been enjoying the Black Duck for generations and for good reason. What other hoity toity town on Connecticut's Gold Coast can claim such a down-to-earth, unpretentious, and friendly pub. Housed on a floating barge with warped floorboards and picture windows on the Saugatuck River, Black Duck serves an amazingly broad menu of seafood and meat-and-potatoes entrees. Best crayfish...

A very warm and cozy place where you can spend time with you friends and enjoy great food & drinks. The food is really very good and so the ambiance is. A very casual and friendly bar!

If you drive past Westport and do not stop, your doing yourself injustice. DO NOT MISS!!! The place looks like hell but is terrific. The atmosphere is legendary. But the food is even better. The owner . Chef really know how to cook and give the customer value. Not only quantity, but quality. This is not a high end place.... More

This place is a long time Westport Favorite and they have a wide variety of food to satisfy everyone. My wife had a steamed lobster that was perfectly done and I had a bacon cheeseburger that was exactly as ordered - medium rare. It's also right on the water so if you sit at the bar you can watch the... More

Driving thru CT on I-95 I make it a point to stop at the Black Duck in Westport. This is a dive bar! but they serve excellent food. The place was so busy when we visited, the line was out the door last week. We had to wait awhile for a spot to open up. The clams casino are so... More

Went because I heard that this place was featured on Triple D. Had the stuffed burger which was just ok. I probably would go with a regular burger if I went back (and I would probably go back). friend had fish n chips which weren't the best. It's pretty busy so don't expect drink refills or a second beer, you'll... More

The Lobster Reuben is fantastic! Black Duck is known locally as a dive bar where burgers are the usual fare. We sit at the bar with a great water view and enjoy our Lobster Reuben's. Enjoy!
