We heard this was the best local restaurant in Jacksonville & it did not disappoint! Great lunch there! Burgers and chicken florentine were all a hit at our table!

The wife and I ate there twice... wasn't really impressed with the food, it was ok, but a little pricey for what you get. The server we had was very nice and informative, but the total experience left something to be desired. We had standard fare as exotic meat choices are not my thing to try out a restaurant. Both...

From the outside, this restaurant has an appearance of a "local bar". Three of us from New York joined 2 of our friends who live on Emerald Isle (on their recommendation) for lunch. I was personally amazed when we walked in. The atmosphere and decor were unexpected - and quite lovely. We were treated pleasantly by the waitress and then... More

If you come here you made a great choice! They have great food, service, atmosphere, and ambiance. They have the best ice tea you ever will put your mouth on! The sanitation rating was 98.5. The food was quick to come and the service! The restrooms are so very very clean. The hours are incorrect as it opens at 11:30... More

I chose this place to entertain a business client after reading the reviews. I found it to be absolutely average and expensive for the quality of the food. We started with the rare Tuna appetizer which was delicious but the Tomato Caprese had mushy tomatoes that had been refrigerated and were devoid of taste. The steaks we had were no... More

Great service and delicious meal. Doesn't look like much from outside and decor is a bit eclectic but the food was great. Will definitely return on my next trip to Jacksonville.

We lived in Jacksonville for 2 1/2 years and always picked Duck's when we wanted to dine out. The food is amazing, the staff is friendly, the head chef, Mike, always walks around to greet his guests and see how they are enjoying the atmosphere and fare. It's an unassuming gem. The outside looks like a normal, country roadside place... More

Food was amazing. The shrimp and tuna were fresh and cooked to perfection. We ordered the rib steak - it was a fantastic cut and prepared perfectly. Also the chicken Florentine was creamy with the pasta cooked just awesome. The food was presented very well. To top it all, the creme brûlée was excellent. Only downside was the coffee, which...

I wanted seafood close to my hotel and I actually passed this restaurant on the way. The food was excellent! Had the clams for an appetizer and salmon for main course. Both were cooked to perfection! I sat at a corner of the bar because I had work to do and the bartenders were very courteous and attentive! The only... More
