Among those visits I've probably had good and not so good but the service is always friendly, I've found the food way above average with a few real standouts. I like craft beers and they have a great selection. Not a place for ambience, dining room is noisy, best seating is in the bar if you can get in.

My first stop at Quack's was interesting, and I mean that in the most confusing way. I actually thought the food was about 3-4 stars. I'm an appetizer kind-o-guy, so I ordered the large sampler platter - not because I could or would eat it all, but because I wanted to see how good the various items were. The onion... More

I was charged for a refill in my soda! I will not return! Before giving a refill they could have warned that we'd be charged for another soda at $2.50 a soda!

Had the Norm's Chicken Clubhouse for Lunch,with Onion Rings. I thought the Sandwich and Rings were great. My Wife on the otherhand,had the "monte Quackster",with rings. They deep fried the outside until it was Granite like, while inside the Sandwich was just a doughy mess of undercooked Bread. Two sandwiches,Onion Rings, Tip, out the Door at $30.00. I would have...

Everyone that we dealt with at this restaurant was super friendly. The fresh bread that you get when you sit down was delicious. I had the baked potato soup...surprisingly good. We were looking for a decent place to eat that was close to our hotel, and this place fit the bill perfectly. Would definitely go back.

I have been looking for a good Monte Cristo sandwich for some time, and a friend recommended the Monte Quackster at Norman Quacks. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambience and found the entire experience to be enjoyable. We ordered the "Mini-Teaser" appetizer and it actually filled us up so much I could not finish the Monte Quackster. , They... More

The place is way cool when you walk in. A very neat atmosphere! There were 5 tables including mine. Two people waiting on tables. Our waiter, a bigger guy late 30's, hardly said a word. Ordered the lunch special, the trio!! Swordfish, ahi tuna and shrimp. Everything was hot. Both fish were way over cooked and the three little pieces... More

Everything that I have had on the menu has been excellent. If you love beer, this is the place to try something new. They have an extensive beer menu as well as full bar service. The entire atmosphere is fun and friendly.

Just off the freeway and the food is quite good. The atmosphere is comfortable and it is a good place to meet people or stop for a nice dinner
