Great bar, wine, beer and cocktails are outstanding and unfortunately that was the best thing they have going on at the Odd Duck. It is a good idea to make reservations here even on a Sunday night it was very busy in the dinning room. We ordered the Filipino Seafood Stew "not bad", Seared Scallops "tasted like burnt butter", Red... More

We've been coming here occasionally for a few years. Food and service has always been outstanding, until tonight. Twice our waiter " forgot" what we ordered. Cleared empty glasses and plates and didn't ask if we wanted anything else. Poor form. Expect more from one of the top rated restaurants in town.

Hi mkebrew, I am so sorry to hear about the recent experience you had at Odd Duck! It does not sound like it lived up to either your previous experiences, or to our standards. If you have any further details (name of server, date you dined) feel free to email me directly at melissa@oddduckrestaurant.com. That way I can follow up... More

I can here after picking my girlfriend up from the airport and we enjoyed both the drinks and food. It is an excellent choice if you are a vegetarian or just want good food. We had a couple of cocktails before our food and they were divine. It is a very fun and lively atmosphere.

Hadn't been to Odd Duck in more than a year...so many other great places to eat closer to home. But we're not going to let that much time go by again. They graciously fit us in as walk-ins on a Saturday night, and proceeded to hit us with two different plates of food that were so good I was scraping... More

A great restaurant in the Bayview area of Milwaukee. We visited on a March Saturday evening and enjoyed an evening of about 12 “tapa like” dishes. Our server brought the courses as she saw fit, and it was well done! The menu changes frequently but has some dishes that carry over. We really enjoyed the Gouda Stuffed Medjool Dates, the... More

We ate dinner here with two other couples and had a great time! The food was delicious... We had a variety of small plates... The scallops, spare ribs, octopus, cauliflower, Korean pancake, and shrimp salad were some of my favorites! We also had coffee and dessert - the coffee was also very good and I really enjoyed the ginger crime... More

This restaurant is an gentrified neighborhood with limited on the street parking. The restaurant does not offer parking or valet parking. The restaurant is narrow but deep with tables scattered around a bar. We arrived early (5:00 PM on a Saturday) with a reservation and the restaurant was filled. Portions are very small - smaller than a typical appetizer and... More

I ate twice whilst in Milwaukee for work. The first time we tried to make an 11th hour reservation which they couldn't do but encouraged us to come in and try and get a seat at the bar. We were glad we did! On the first night we were served by Gina, who was fantastic, My friend asked for a... More

We enjoyed our evening at Odd Duck. Nice atmosphere and service was prompt and professional. We had five plates for two of us and it was plenty. The gouda stuffed dates with Saba were yummy, the daal was delicious and the beef carnitas with cheesy grits were delicious. We don't like cilantro so we did not enjoy the cilantro slaw... More
