We stopped in Portland on our trip North at dinnertime. We had heard about Duckfat & were lucky enough to get a table quickly. The menu was great and our dinner was delicious. We especially enjoyed the fresh sodas! Totally a real treat!

We went to Duckfat as part of our annual Maine vacation. While the wait was 2 hours, (we couldn't book) the staff kindly offered to call us 10 minutes before a table would open, so we could explore Portland. When we finally sat down, we...More
