“Great stop at the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I lived at the lake for two years and made the mistake of only going here a few times before I moved away. The atmosphere is very welcoming, along with the staff. The menu has many things to choose from no matter what your taste desires. Chef Phil prepares very amazing meals along with others. The owners, which you will see, make you feel right at home when you visit. Be sure to make the stop here, you will not be disappointed.

“Part Time Lakers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The lake is our second home and whenever we are there a night at The Duck is a must. Mark and Donna make everyone feel like a regular whether it's your first visit or one of many. The wine list is exceptional with offerings we have not seen elsewhere. The menu covers all tastes and is consistently prepared by Phil the Chef and his team. If you're looking for a romatic evening dinner on the patio at sunset can't be beat.

“Premier Restaurant At Lake of the Ozarks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is the place to go if you want the best food at the lake. You can go by car or boat and the view whether you are seated inside or out is fabulous. Besides the best food, always prepared to perfection; this restaurant has the best wine list by far at the lake. We try and get there at least once every 2 months.

LakeWineGuy, Owner at The Duck, responded to this review, December 15, 2012
Thank you for your kind remarks. We enjoy getting to know our guests - it is one of the aspects of this tough business that is very rewarding. We're winding down for the season now, so if we don't see you before the end of the year, we'll see you in 2013. We'll be re-opening in early April. Happy Holidays!
