The Duck closed on May 13th after 27 yrs. It was good for 25 yrs. The salad dressing was the best as was the meals, BUT something went wrong in the kitchen and it was down hill after that.

This is the best kept secret in the County! BYOB but some of the most unbelievable gourmet specialties are created from scratch to order. Make a reservation as they do not take walk in guest, but it is well worth the effort!

Restaurant is filthy. Owner is rude. Exterior is unsightly and covered in vines. Cannot imagine what's crawling underneath all of that! Menu is extensive and most dishes are drowned in sauce. My friends and I have drawn a big X on this one.
