I am from Brazil and this restaurant got as close to home as I wanted. Great food and awesome entertainment. Chef Mike definitely went above and beyond to make all those requisitions come to a perfect ending dish.

Our server was fantastic! The food was very good, however I was sad we didn't come for dinner. The "chips" were excellent and the desert was fantastic !!!!! Erin is an exceptional waitress!

Both times we've dined here, our server has been Natalie. She is by far one of the best servers I have had anywhere. Pleasant, attentive, and has a great personality. The crab dip is to die for. And you can never go wrong with the shrimp and grits. From the outside, this place looks less than 5 star when you... More

I have been eating at Ducks for the past six years while traveling to Camp Lejeune on business. They have NEVER disappointed. When anyone visits Jacksonville, NC and asks me for a recommendation I always tell them Ducks. The food is outstanding (and diverse) and the atmosphere I amazing. They honestly have the perfect setup. They have a two full... More

Stopped in for lunch after reading other reviews, and were very pleasantly surprised. Inside the atmosphere was Upscale and delightful. Food was delicious, and the service fast and friendly. This proved to be a real find, and we will definitely go back, next time for an evening meal.

We went here from a recommendation from the hotel we stayed at. Being from out of town I wanted to try a different restaurant that was not a chain. Everything was delicious. Probably on the pricier side but worth your money.

We were in town for business and found this place while looking for another restaurant. Turning around to head back to Ducks was the best decision we made! The food is amazing (I had grilled tuna, cheesy grits, and asparagus and then ordered the exact same thing when we were in town a few weeks later!). My colleagues ordered duck... More

Ducks was recommended by the local craft beer store/bottle shop. Boy were we surprised, not only did they have wonderful craft beer on draft (in frosty mugs!!), but the lunch specials were fabulous. We sat outdoors on a sunny Friday afternoon and it was just perfect. Great atmosphere and service. Both of our lunches were GREAT and look forward to... More

Looked like a hole in the wall from the outside but the inside was unique and the food was delicious. Enjoyed brunch with mimosas that really packed a punch. Will be back
