Longgggggggggggggg wait for food.

We have been to Rusty Duck more than once and have always been happy with service, food, & service. For my husbands 80th birthday our five children flew down from Pa to celebrate with him. We made reservations two weeks ahead pre ordered appetizers and prime rib. We were there at 5:00 and knew that... read more

Long wait to be seated for lunch even though our group was the only party there. Food was really good. Seating is cramped. Staff is very friendly.

It isn't much to look at so don't go for the view. We had Large meals that were made well. I took 2/3 of my meal home and I'm not a light eater. Very attentive waitress!!

Went for dinner with friends on a Wednesday night. Wasn't sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews. While you need to be patient the wait between courses was not that long. We had plenty of time to catch up and enjoy each others company. The food was excellent as was the service.

The Duck doesn't look like much from the outside. In fact it looks closed, but very nice inside. I thought the food and service was excellent . You will wait for the entree because everything is prepared to order. It is worth the wait. If you enjoy appetizer order before u get there then it will come out promptly .... More

First time here. You bring your own beer/wine here. Queen prime rib was excellent, pricey at $30, but brought enough home for another meal. The Frutti de Mare was very good. I don't like calamari so they left that our and put in extra shrimp, scallops etc. Also enough left for another meal. Only thing I ? is the $2... More

Took friends out to the "Duck" for dinner. Disappointed in that our reservations were "Lost?" It appeared that someone had "whited out" the first block of seating for the evening, since I had made the reservations with the Boss, I don't think she would have done it. Regardless, she was kind enough to squeeze us in. Service was good, the... More

My wife Sandy & I took our good friend Lynda Johnson to the Rusty Duck to celebrate an early birthday since she will be in NH & to wish her bon voyage for her trip north. Well..., we were three happy eaters. Sandy got the rack of lamb with rice (eight ribs cooked perfectly), Lynda got the back scallops that... More

4 golfers from Connecticut visited for dinner on Friday 03/28/15. We had been here 2 years before. This years dinners were also excellent, 2 of us had NY strips, and 2 had frutti de mare (lots of seafood/shellfish in butter/garlic sauce over pasta)!!!!!!!! The 12 oz NY strips were huge, more like 16+ ounces. Good soup, very good salads (pink... More
