Best place to grab a drink or bite in Whole county! Makes the running for state

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... read 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

I went to ducks with a group of four. It was a busy Friday night, luckily there was no wait. The service was great and the food was delicious. I'm very please with the experience.

If a local had not told me about this place we would driven past it without a look. Lucky for us we had the inside scoop. This place has a great menu -- I had the mahi one night and the sea bass/ elk chop mixed grill the next. Great service too.

We recently had a brief stay in Jacksonville, and thanks to trip advisor we found this little gem!!! Oh My! I had the Tuscan Burger, and it was the best burger i have ever had in my life (and I have eaten many burgers). We were here for lunch, so it was quiet, which was fine with us. The decor... More

They have a pretty reasonable lunch menu. Reasonably priced, quiet and not to loud for a bar atmosphere. their greek salad was amazing. Sandwiches are also really good. Definitely a noce place for a quiet lunch.

I'm in Jacksonville once or twice a week. While there, I try to score points by taking the wife to lunch. The serving staff and cook understand the essence of time and don't waste it. Whether salad, entree, or sandwick, the food is superior. Prices are reasonable and staff is always pleasant and friendly. Beats any of the chain restaurants.... More
