BLT was fine, the buger was very good, the chicken sandwich was the best choice. The place is small, not the cleanest, but reasonable for resort town food. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

No one even acknowledged us for over 15 mins. Very slow and very rude. We ended up leaving. There were empty tables but they didn't seem like they wanted to serve anyone.

My son had a double patty burger with pulled pork with onion rings on top. He said it was the best burger he ever had in his life.

I was in the mood for BBQ and decided to drive into Duck and have lunch. My first mistake was to stop at Duck Deli & BBQ. This is not a BBQ place! On a side note, I was in the mood for brisket this is not on their menu, so I opted for the BBQ chicken sandwich, upgraded to... More

We decided to try Duck Deli after reading all of the reviews. First, the staff was not that friendly and there were flies EVERYWHERE! We ordered a barbecue sandwich and after one bite, decided it was enough. There was so much grease in the barbecue that the entire bun was soggy. Will not be returning here.

There used to be a Duck Deli near our home in Pennsylvania that we often stopped at. We had the hush puppies which are awesome. I had the duck club sandwich and my wife had the chicken salad. They were doing a robust lunch business but the service was very good. Look forward to returning.

Recently, we went to this restaurant for lunch. The customer service was great and the food was good. The smoked chicken salad sandwich was tasty - just needed a little salt. The pulled pork sandwich was moist but slightly greasy. They're coleslaw was generic and did not appear to be made from scratch. A vinegar based coleslaw on the sandwich... More
