This was our last meal after spending 5 days on the islands and our least favorite. First, you need to be hungry as all entrees come with soup and salad. To share a plate is $10, not including an extra salad and soup--additional $12. The steak Dianne was good but the salmon left a lot to be desired, as others... More

This place was highly recommended by everyone who heard we were traveling to SJI, and they were right! I made reservations for my boyfriend's birthday, and he ended up proposing to me that day, so we were celebrating double! Our B&B host suggested arriving an hour before our reservation to enjoy a drink on the back patio, which was amazing.... More

My parents, husband, and I had a wonderful meal at Duck Soup Inn. This is a great place to go for a special treat. We had a lovely meal, the atmosphere was magical, and the staff was charming!! I loved that the entrees were served with both a small soup and salad! The desserts were divine!

Took my wife for her birthday thinking it would be a treat, mistake #1. Ordered a chicken dish which had an nasty after taste that lasted hours, mistake 2. Waited and waited and waited for our appetizers, entree and even our bill, mistake 3. Three strikes you're out!!

Made a reservation here based on rave reviews from TA as well as a few regional guidebooks. Pleasant ambience. Nice wine and cocktail list. Raves for the Saigon chicken roll app, house salad, soup & bread. A steak special with potatoes was fabulous, but the duck entree was a real disappointment. The duck arrived cut in large unappetizing chunks -... More

Went with a group for a total of three people. Service and atmosphere were great - the restaurant had a "log cabin" feel to it. For the food, we had the duck breast, steak special, and the salmon for entrees. The menu had many interesting fla We also had the smoked oysters for an appetizer, and the entrees all included...

We had heard and read so many nice things about this restaurant we were eager to try it. We waited 20 minutes for our reserved table although the restaurant was only about three quarters full, not a good beginning. The waitress recommended the deep friend brussels sprouts appetizer, which was burned; sadly, we could not tell her, as she dropped... More

A bit hard to rate, definitely good foot, but 3 star when considering price. We had the fried brussels sprouts, the snap peas and carrots, and the roasted duck breast. The vegetables were very good, but a bit overpriced for what you got. The duck was served extremely rare, which the server did not mention in advance, and was not... More

Island life comes together in a great spot with the owner greeting you at the door, server explaining the menu very well and the chef experimenting with unique flavors and ingredients. We had the duck and salmon dishes, salmon was cooked well and the flavor was what you would expect from the NW but the duck...Magnifique! It was served over... More
