Came here for some drinks and apps during happy hour. Server was hilarious. Pretended to drop a tray with (unknowingly) empty beer bottle on my mom. Her expression was priceless. FYI, there isn't a bathroom outside. Don't listen to what they tell you ;)

I have to say the waiters are pretty funny and its a great atmosphere. Get ready for insults. The only issue is the portion size

Stopped in here as we were walking around. Not our first time here. Sat at the outside bar. bartender was funny but at times seemed to take his humor to seriously. People couldn't tell if he was joking the "Dick's" way or he was really an butthead.

Food was very average. Our party had ribs, chicken, shrimp. It was typical experience at Duck's, but those who hasn't been to one before had a good time.

The food and drinks were divine. The atmosphere too funny. They act a little rude, put funny things on paper hats on your head, if you are so inclined. We never stop talking about it. We loved it and take visitors there often.

A fun place for some adult time. People brought kids but maybe they should have thought about that? Things get pretty raunchy, in a good way, for adults. The service, which I know is supposed to be bad, is really bad. I never got a drink after the first one when I fought my way to the bar. The waiter... More

We had dinner on a Thursday evening around 7 o'clock. Appetizer was crab bites Meal: Shrimp with Add on Ribs (split between us) The variety of shrimp was good--fried, grilled, and peeled. The ribs were served hot and tender. We had a piece of strawberry cheesecake, which was plenty for two adults. The staff were very entertaining with comments and... More

Had heard about this chain and was told it was a great experience with servers insulting you and your party throughout your meal. Now maybe it's because I'm Irish and as a nation we slag each other a lot, but myself, my girlfriend and our friend didn't find anyone even vaguely insulting/rude/indifferent or anything other than helpful (which is great!...

My father and I met my sister in SD for a conference and stopped at Dick's. It was the perfect choice for us! Sarcasm with sides of grain alcohol and great food. We had a blast.

As my title indicates this place is lots of fun even though they have nasty (somewhat overpriced) food. I would really only go there for a drink next time and have dinner elsewhere. It was a friend's idea to eat here so we did. I wouldn't recommend this place if you've had a bad day at work, just lost your... More
