Tried to go there Friday night 5/2 and it was not open, scaffolds out front, interior torn up and no explanation on front door.

The french fries (cooked in duck fat) are heavenly, but the panini and milkshakes are delicious, too. I would definitely return to Duckfat on a future visit to Portland.

The Belgian fries were the reason we went here and it's convenience to the Hampton Inn Waterfront. It is a small place but has great atmosphere. We ordered the special which was a sandwich board which offered three choices. Very tasty. Service was goodl Would go here again to try other menu options.

It was very good, excellent in fact. We were more then impressed. Instead of waiting an hour an a half at 3pm, we elected for the take out and eat outside. Much better option, they pack the togo food very well and everything was hot, or cold - milkshake. I would highly recommend and would definitely eat there again.

I really appreciate what they are doing with this restaurant, great ambiance, fresh quality food, etc but I wasn't overly impressed. But perhaps it was just what we ordered.

My fiance and I showed up tired and hungry, so after a 30 minute wait to be seated, we ordered rather quickly off the menu. We shared a large poutine, a ham sandwich, and a "rootbeer", then donut holes for desert. I love poutine, but I'm a bit picky about it and this one was a bit of a miss for me, needed more cheese and gravy. Everything tasted good, but it didn't quite live up to what we were hoping. Except the donuts, those were really good.

One thing we didn't get, however, was dipping sauce for the fries (because we had poutine) but everyone else in the restaurant seemed to be using little cups of sauce, at least one of which was aoli, which I love.

So, overall, good spot but based on what we ordered it wasn't quite what we hoped for. However, we'll be back for fries with garlic aoli and donut holes...as long as we don't have to wait 30 minutes to be seated.
