Awesome menu, kitschy Northwoods atmosphere, best beer selection around! Fresh seafood, awesome steaks, interesting burgers and sandwiches. Soups are fresh and fantastic. Of note, once in your lifetime, you need to try the Monte Quackster; triple decker sandwich with ham, turkey, cheese, breaded, deep fried, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with fruit preserves. Unbelievably yummy and unhealthy as all... More

We stopped in here not knowing what to expect. It was great. Very friendly owner and fine food. The waitress was exceptional, and the service great. My brother got a free desert. What more can you ask for. We will be back.

We had a group of four adults on Saturday evening, about 5:30pm ,who ordered a 'buffalo sandwich' and the 'garlic trout' (fish special). The sandwich was very good, the chicken moist, and the portion was large - not too spicey. The 'garlic trout' was also prepared properly - not overcooked. The portion size was somewhat small for a large eater.... More

I think the best item on their menu is the pork chops. They are huge and prepared with care. The beer selection is great featuring a fairly large variety of beers from smaller breweries.

I always enjoy getting sent to town to run errands because it gives me a chance to stop by Quack's and see what they've got on top and grab an appetizer or a sandwich. They are constantly changing their beer selection and have great specials going on all of the time.

We visited here on a Saturday night and enjoyed dinner in the bar. We all had a beer or wine and enjoyed our burgers - prepared as we like them. I enjoyed the relaxed feel of the bar and comfortable atmosphere. About what I'd expect to pay for a 1/2 pound (BIG!) burger and Yes I did eat the whole... More

The food is a little pricey, but it's great! Staff is always prompt and we have never had a problem! My wife and I have been there with our kids and by ourselves and it's always great!

We have been here a couple of times and never had what we considered "good food". Slightly below average would be more like it. We waited too long to be seated and continued waiting due to shortage of wait staff. Once we were waited on she was very nice and attentive .

Good food - Lots of variety, but the prices are WAY too high for the portion sizes. The atmosphere is nice and the locaiton and parking are good as well. I'd go back if they lowered their prices to a reasonable and fair rate.

We've visited Norman Quacks twice over the past two years. On our first visit, we left before placing our food order. The service was terrible - not just slow, but rude. The "fresh" bread was stale, and once piece actually had mold on it. We gave them another shot recently, and it was better. I had a pretty decent steak... More
