And their salad was delicious as well. It came with either a raspberry or balsalmic vinagrette. It had cranberries, pistacios, grated parmesan, apple and orange garnish. The burger made us come back a second time it was so good. The pasta salad on the side could have been more. They do seem to have a limited menu and not really... More

Nice outside area and diverse menu but no kids menu. The only kids option they had was pasta with butter marinara. I mean seriously you can't make a chicken finger, or a grilled cheese? Adult food was good not great, but we were really put off by the lack of kids options. So know before you go.

Spent 2 weeks in Duck and have to say, this was by far my favorite place to eat! I ordered the chicken salad which was absolutely delicious! The salad itself was very fresh and the chicken salad was very flavorful. Nice touch with the pistachios sprinkled around! The raspberry dressing on the side was just perfect - not too sweet...

We had 4 people in our party and 3 got the lobster grilled cheese. I was the only one that doesn't like seafood and got a salad. I didn't like my salad at all. It was a ceasar something or other with pink dressing. Perhaps cranberry dressing? I don't even remember I hated it so much. So gross. My company... More

We've now visited the Roadside two or three times during different times of the year(s). The meals are thoroughly enjoyable and the atmosphere is cozy/comfortable. During the summer they can get crazy busy and focused mostly on the outside bar scene (it's where the money's at). Appears to be a very popular destination in Duck. The off season is a... More

In duck for a wedding planning trip and stopped for lunch. Wouldn't have even noticed the place if I hadn't gone on trip advisor and saw the reviews. Wow! So glad we stopped here. Very eclectic vibe. Neat atmosphere. We sat outside which has a hedge around it so even tho you're on the main road it feels private. The... More

Had the tomato pie. No bread, nothing for dipping into what was just tomato chunks with melted cheese. Had the sausage and shrimp. Sausage and the shrimp were good but on rice that wasn't cooked. Hard still. And on top of beans that had no flavor. No blender for good drinks. Only 4 beers on tap. Was fun to sit... More

If you vacation in Duck, eat at the Roadside Grill. It is an experience as much as a meal. I am just old enough to remember what destination restaurants used to be. A unique place that reflects the flavor and atmosphere of it's locale. You generally can't find these places anymore for a lot of reasons, but when you do,... More

Wonderful restaurant with great food and even better service. The Roadside helped me plan my surprise engagement party for my fiance and it could not have gone better. They were extremely accommodating and helped the night go perfectly. Could not have picked a better place to have such a special night. Would highly recommend the Roadside to anyone visiting the...

I went to this restaurant for take-out because my wife and I were just too tired to go out to a restaurant. I was greeted by the friendliest staff you will ever meet. I placed my order and waited at the bar with a very nice local IPA. The food arrived before I got halfway through the beer and it... More
