We stayed in a hotel not far from this restaurant and we decided this to be our first restaurant visit for 2017. We have a young child so we choose accordingly. Didn't booked but they had tables available and we were soon seated. We noticed that there were quite a few staff present and soon realised that most were trainee... More

Enjoyed breakfast and coffees with beautiful views across the loch. Excellent service from all the staff, and very comfortable surroundings.

I've lost count of the number of times I've eaten at Duck Bay. It's my favourite restaurant and everyone I've taken there has also been impressed by the menu choice, location, ambience & service. Easy to miss as it's hidden from the main road heading north but once you've visited you'll want to return.

This hotel has a fantastic location situated right on the Loch. I stayed here for two nights recently. As has been stated in other reviews that I have seen the rooms are small but adequate for the room tariff that was paid. If I was paying the full season rate then the room and facilities would definitely not at that... More

Haven't been in Duck Bay for years (30 something) so it was nice to stop for lunch. Good food,attentive staff and reasonable prices,especially considering the view from our table. We have eaten in three of the outlets owned by this group and all have been first class. Well worth a try folks!

Very impressed by building and the location, of course, is amazing. Stopped for coffee and scone. Asked waiter specifically how many "shots" there were in an Americano and happy when he said two, as I like coffee strong. Was very disappointed to be served a lukewarm, weak coffee, definitely NOT a 2-shot coffee. The scone was dry - a ready-mix... More

The food was only ok. The restaurant was incredibly hot I mentioned it to a waiter and he said yes it is hot ! Fire features in the walls not necessary. Tables far too close to each other. Food came very quickly as soon as one course was taken away the next one appeared, felt really rushed.

The Duck Bay has an extensive menu, and is even flexible on that. The food is hearty Hotel Cuisine, and is of good quality and well presented. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the setting would be even better on a warm summer day. Prices reflect the Loch Lomond premium.

Great evening experienced at Duck Bay. Menu was great with some choices I'd never heard of! All the food was served piping hot and tasted great. Portions are very big!! Wife and I could have shared a starter and a main. Drinks good, good selections of vodkas and rum. Staff very friendly. Great value as well.
