“A surprise in a hole in the wall town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Who knew! This is a great upscale restaurant in a town that doesn't offer options like this. Anything you get is awesome. Prices are not out of line for the type of food you get. So treat yourself to a great meal and try Ducks.

“Culinary surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Jacksonville NC is not known for upscale restaurants. So ducks was a surprise. While visiting my daughter and son in law we took my wife out for her birthday. Excellent service fine food with a French and creole flair. Good drinks and a great price tag. If you in jacksonville and you want to take her out for a romantic dinner

“W hat a restaurant should be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Service was excellent by a very pleasant and attentive server.

I was looking for seafood and found them on the internet. Went there, fish of the day was grouper and I asked if it could be fried instead of the way it was listed on the menu.

She went to ask the chef and came back and said yes we could do that. Also with that was shitake mushroom risotto (?) and grilled asparagus. Fabulous!! One of the top 5 best seafood dinners ever. I'm 69 today and it was my birthday dinner.

“Best good in Jax--hands down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Locally owned. A rare non-chain restaurant in jacksonville. Definitely the best food on town. We live local and go often especially for holiday brunches or when friends are visiting. It has 3 sections--bar which can be loud, restaurant which is nice, and a patio where we hang put with large groups of friends.
