We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience. SO many flavors, SO perfectly done! Everything was beautiful - from the quaint cabin to the adorable (and very talented) server. The food looked like something off of a culinary competition show! LOVED this place and will definitely return!

First, after two decades of eating here we have to say that we love the Duck Soup, its location, its ambiance and of course the food. Savoring every bite prepared by Gretchen the previous owner/cook was an experience we will never forget. Gretchen sold her restaurant so a group of us tried dinner under the new owner. At 6pm on...

Ok,it's definitely rustic as the web site describes (which by the way still has the spring menu, and should have been a big red flag). If you like sitting on wood benches with pizza crust thin cushions) for a four-course meal. Despite being on time for our reservations, we had to wait 30 mins for our table. And with the... More

The ambiance was excellent. I had a Kobe beef dish that was remarkable. Others in our group tried salmon and duck. The only problem was that the salmon was underdone. Also, we were disappointed that they did not have duck soup on the menu.

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...
