We have been driving by the Duck soup for years and finally decided that we needed to try it. So glad we made the decision to eat here for our 1 year anniversary. Awesome service and food!

Stayed at a nearby B&B for two nights, and made sure to get reservations here for dinner while we were on the island. It did not disappoint! Everything is very fresh, with great herbs and spices. We got a wonderful bottle of red that perfectly complimented the Steak Diane on the fall menu. Relaxed atmosphere for such a nice place,... More

We were greeted warmly although arriving quite late. The duck dinner was possibly the best we've ever had and the cherry kuchen dessert was also wonderful in both texture and taste. Other items had mixed reviews but overall a very good experience.

Our meals were all underwhelming. We had seen there was a change of ownership and some disappointed diners from previous reviews but decided to give it a go anyway. I would not recommend this.

After hearing that the Duck Soup Inn is one of the best restaurants on San Juan island we decided to give it a try on our recent visit. It was only after our dinner there that we discovered that the restaurant had been sold. The location and ambiance of the restaurant is great. The service was very good although a... More

We were a family group of seven and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food, the location and the dining experience. We had a very personable waitress, seemed like she was either the owner and/or the manager. She definitely knew their food, preparation and took excellent care of us the entire evening. We even asked about the massive table in the... More

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.
