I had the pumpkin bisque which was excellent as an app and for the main course I and my wife both had the half duck entree. We both agreed was awesome. Call for reservations the place is a little small but worth visiting if you are in the area.

A lovely find - we are so grateful to the reviewers who came before us and recommended this restaurant and its phenomenal cuisine. We had only a few days in Cape May and dined at two other 'top 5' restaurants on Trip Advisor. Black Duck, though lower rated, was the best experience of the three. Loved the innovative menu, the...

This is one of our go to restaurants in Cape May. We have been dining here for many years since Chris purchased the restaurant. Food and service is always great. Recently dined on Crab Cakes, which are great and served with fresh sautéed spinach and roasted potatoes. Stilton salad was great with Stilton cheese and apples. Salmon is always great... More

My husband and I have been here for 2 weeks and eaten at several really good restaurants. Black Duck was really top notch. We had the pu pu platter of appetizers because we couldn't pick just one. Each has it's own sauce and tiny salad or cold slaw flavor to go with it. The salmon of the day had a... More

Great service from Kelly our server and each member of the staff. The arugula salad special, while large, never got dull. The pears, nuts, sqash, and cauliflower made each bite a delight. My snapper had a delicious crust and was perfectly cooked, served on a bed of delectable gnocchi, fresh vegies, and sauce. My sister loved her short ribs with... More

After visiting Cape May the first week in September, we decided to try the Black Duck Restaurant on Sunset our first day we arrived. We made reservations ahead of time and we were soooo impressed, not only with the ambience but the entrees were all delicious. A absolute must when vacationing in Cape May. All the little individual rooms make... More

Definitely one of the best dining experiences in West Cape May. A BYOB with great fare. The limited menu features duck and local seafoods. Great daily specials feature in season seafood and jersey fresh fruits and vegetables. Never had a bad meal yet. Causal dining that is a bit more upscale. Great for special occasions. Definitely a local favorite.

Thank Joseph C
