Greasy lunch

Always enjoy eating out on the patio. Great eclectic menu. Service is fast and friendly. A must see by the river and enjoy the trains going by as well.

We visited The Blue Duck while spending a weekend in the area. We went on a Saturday night around 7-8pm and got a seat right away. They have indoor seating, partial outdoor seating with a garage door that opens to the street, or a regular patio. We sat in the area with the garage door and had a nice view... More

Recently tried The Blue Duck for a rare dinner with my husband sans kids. I foolishly ordered an expensive steak entree. However, this was far from New York Strip. Not only was it overcooked and ridiculously over peppered, (indigestion for hours after) the accompanying winter vegetables were hardly recognizable. Those black blobs on my plate? Wild mushrooms and the remains... More

This is a busy place at lunchtime. I always go for the mushroom soup, can't be beat. The salads are good too. The cran-orange bread, toasted, is a wonderful accompaniment.The sandwich with the apples, chicken and cheese is really good. You won't be disappointed with anything on the menu. There is a nice patio that is enclosed, but in the... More

We have eaten here a few times since moving to Washington in December and it is by far our favorite restaurant in the area. Wonderful food and service. I can't leave without getting a vanilla macaron to finish my meal. I will say that we seem to enjoy lunch there more than dinner though. I love the smoked meat sandwich... More

We decided to take the long way home from St. Louis to Chicago suburbs 😉 when local wine enthusiast Vicky from Noboleis pointed us to this North Star. "Try the fried Brussels sprouts"; she says. "Really!?" Ummm, yeah right... What a surprise delight that was. Server Bobbie Jo was absolutely spot on with recommendations throughout the night and when we... More

This is an amazing restaurant! Everything my friends and I have ever eaten here is delicious. The menu is very diverse offering something for every pallet. The food is very flavorful and beautifully prepared. Pricing is good. The atmosphere is great. It has a very laid back and sophisticated feel. The location offers plenty of parking down on the river... More

We stopped here for lunch recently and I was so pleased with the Pot Roast Sandwich and Mushroom Soup I had. We couldn't resist the Bloody Mary which was served with a full drink pick of olives, a stalk of celery, and a salted rim. Spicy and good. My husband's burger was really very small and I ended up giving... More
