Very good food, service. I would return

Ducks was an above average resturaunt with very good food and excellent service. Three of us had dinner, one drink each and dessert for 110.00 plus tip. The pasta dishes were very good, but the ribeye was below average and dry. A nice change of pace from the sports bar mentality resturaunts

Our waitress was terrific, the menu extensive with unique, interesting, flavorful choices. Service was spot on. Being a tad pricey could be forgiven except the main course meats were not as ordered. Medium rare came out rare (cool red middle) and medium came out well done (no red at all). And the presentation failure: instead of replacing the plate, they... More

We had dinner at Duck's on April 3, 2015. The duck breast was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was very experienced and knew the menu well. She was well aware of how the foods should be served and anticipated this when placing your order. The duck was prepared medium rare and the salmon was prepared medium. They were both great....

This restaurant is not a chain restaurant and it seems they cook your meal to order. They have daily specials and we have tried several and they are good. Nice atmosphere on the dining side , you don't have to wait for a table usually. A nice, quality restaurant in town.

In a town otherwise completely devoid of good food Ducks stands alone. We've been there a few times now and each time has been excellent. Superb food, high quality wait staff and usually a great atmosphere. Duck's is an oasis in a town full of chain restaurants. Remember, you get what you pay for and Duck's is worth every penny....

My wife and I love this place. We only make it in once or twice a month, but the Bar tender, Rob, always remembers us, and makes a point to shake my hand. Just one reason, on top of many, we continue to come back. The food is extraordinary. You won't find anything else close in Jacksonville, and the staff... More

The staff was very pleasant, took great care of me. I had an excellent brown ale, their Hot Crab Dip, and the Blackened Shrimp & Grits. Overall, everything was excellent. I stress this because there were only 2 servers working that night. It was a cold winter night, ice covered cars and walkways, and several places had closed due to... More

Been eating here for the past 2 years. Cool, relaxing atmosphere and a great place for a bite to eat and a drink after work. Great selection of beer. The dinner menu is a bit pricey, but eating off the bar or lunch menu is quite reasonable. The duck breast is great; the Black & Bleu and Islander burgers are... More
