The inside seating area is pretty small, but there is additional outside seating. We arrived about 1:45 pm for a late lunch and there was a bit of a wait, but not too long. Food was good, and a bit above average, but not exceptional. Even with the full house, service was great. They have several sandwiches, and their specialty... More

Nice place to grab a quick lunch. The sandwiches are very good and they carry a nice choice of menu items.

I went to Duck Deli while on vacation at Duck. It was really great for breakfast. The menu was extensive and the food was delicious. I ordered eggs over easy with toast and coffee. I ate here every morning because it was so good and the service was fast.

Husband got the sampler. Heads up the chicken is HOT. He enjoyed his meal. I got a BLT and fries, light meal very good. My daughter got the Italian sub, she said it was delicious. Service was good and quick. Little pricey but not too bad.

Duck Deli is an unassuming little place with delicious comfort food. When you walk in the door you are greeted by the delicious smell of pork barbecue and you know it is going to be good. The dinner menu includes chicken and pork barbecue, burgers and my favorite, Rock and Roll Tacos. These are delicious fish tacos with spicy slaw,... More

My wife and I had lunch at Duck Deli and were able to take our dog in their garden area. The owner brought a bowl of water to our pooch and they cooked a chicken breast just for her. The food was great, the service was amazing, and we couldn't have been more thrilled with this place for lunch. Don't... More

We stopped in here for a quick bite and were totally blow away by the yummy comfort food. The hushpuppies were divine! The BBQ sandwich was delicious as was the fish taco. And don't forget to order the onion rings. So good. The sauces on the table were great. Very unique in their flavor. Definitely a great option for lunch!

Parking is a hazard. The nose-in parking is off highway 12 and so exiting involves backing into traffic. This situation would not pass highway standards today but this place is grandfathered in. Food is marginal at best. The only blight on a lovely town. Was here ten years ago when building my beach house and nearly lost my life leaving... More
