Great Casual Place

We to to 'the duck' quite often. Sometimes for their great fish specials or just for a burger. The food is always good. Had stuffed shrimp last time and it was very good as always. Drinks made by Joann are always good too. Good atmosphere, but can be a bit noisy sometimes. Service was very good... read more

Prices are getting higher with every visit. $13 for a turkey burger and the shrimp and egg salad. Bartender was great, but unfortunately that's not enough to get me to go back. The Duck used to be a great hangout with cold beer and hot, fresh popcorn to nibble on and watch a game or two. The popcorn is gone... More

I go out to eat a lot and this meal was pretty terrible .. My wife and I watched our food sit in the window while 4 servers stood around and talked to each other.. My server who didn't seem to intouch with personal hygiene, was scratching his flakey scalp at my table while asking us for drinks. Gross. I... More

Good food that is prepared properly.....and that isn't easy because I am annoyingly specific with my request.the veggie plate is great. The tossed seafood and egg salad is really good. Great burgers. And the wait staff is very friendly and efficient.

The Sitting Duck has been around forever and has always been a very good local family restaurant. We have been going there for years and it was always consistent. The past few times that has not been the case. I was served cold, fatty roast beef which was a special once, sent it back and the cook told the waitress... More

Recently dined at This Sitting Duck with two friends. Have been there many times before,food has always been good as long as you keep it simple. Service has alway been very good both at the tables and bar. This time all three entrees were disasters. Two of us had the grilled tuna special, it was advertised as grilled; coated with... More

This place has a nice sized bar in it and a great menu with specials and it can be hard to narrow down the choices. I enjoy the burgers here, everyone once in a while I will splurge if there is a special that catches my eye. Prices are in line with the quality, if you are coming here looking... More

It's a local joint, noisy with a big bar. I ate there last year, and it was ok, but nothing exceptional. This year, it was a disaster. Let's start with my order: a rack of ribs. Didn't offer a half rack, which was what I really wanted, but I figured ok, I could nuke the leftovers. Not. The rack was... More
