“Great food and outdoor patio!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

I've been to Duckfat a number of times with colleagues, friends and family. Each time, everyone has enjoyed their meal very much! Most people (myself included) especially like the fish tacos and the Duckfat burger served with applewood smoked bacon and brie...delicious! The Kobe beef burger seems to get good reviews as well. I prefer the outdoor patio as the inside feels a lot like a 'bar' vs a nice resturant.

“Nice outdoor patio, but that's about it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

I gave Duckfat three tries, one with just family and two with family and friends. Each of the three times I was disappointed. The "duckfat fries" are just average and the burgers were served overcooked and dry on two of the visits. In fact, my daughter's sliders were so charred that the entire edges were crispy and hard. The other sandwiches and entrees, such as the grilled chicken wrap, were okay, but nothing phenomenal. The one thing going for this place is it does have a large and nice outdoor patio. So if you're going just for drinks, this would be a nice summer option. But if you're looking for food, there are plenty of better places right down the block.
