We used to love the Whistling Swan (on the first floor of this historic building). We were sad when that restaurant closed, but happy to find The Duck. We were there early on a Saturday night (too early to be hungry enough for two entrees)....More

Love the bar. Extremely comfortable and a little unusual. You'll have to go see what I mean. They recently expanded to open a casual tavern area. Great menu, Part of an excellent restaurant group

Terrific above average food and probably one of the best clam chowders I've ever had. The serving size was generous and the waitstaff very attentive. Above average dining experience.
