We had lunch here over the weekend,and it was quite good. Like it's t sister restaurant,The Pour House, the portions are huge and plentiful. Thee food was good with plenty of options on the menu. It is an open kitchen so you can all the preparations.I will definitely be back.

Just had a leisurely lunch will waiting to pick someone up. Sat at the bar where Victoria was spot on in service suggestions and just down right pleasant. Best couple of hours in a while, the lobster pot pie special was amasing. Thank you Victoria for suggesting it, and yes the soft serve that followed with a cup of coffee... More

First time in a long time I was here for lunch. It was not crowded, as it is in the evening. My companion ordered a chicken and pasta in vodka sauce. It looked great, he said it tasted great, also. The portion was so large he couldn't finish. My taverna steak salad was rare, as I ordered. Lunch came with... More

Excellent Bavarian fare for this fall celebration. Well worth a visit at other times, too! Food & service are terrific. The on tap beer selection is exceptional.

The Sitting Duck is a neighborhood type restaurant with an upscale feel. They have nightly dinner specials and draft beer on tap. Deserts are decadent...right now they have an October Fest going on. Everything is priced right for every budget and everything is always fresh and tasty...Service is excellent!

The other night we had dinner at The Sitting Duck and were quite pleased. Our salads were crisp and fresh. My stuffed Shrimps were cooked to perfection while my Wife's Shrimp Scampi was very much to her liking. Our friends too enjoyed their Grilled Chicken and Grilled Shrimp very much. Washing everything down with a cold beer also didn't hurt.... More

This appears to be a local place, mainly based on the somewhat residential location, which, selfishly I am glad about. You cannot get a better lunch (Great Specials) for the price anywhere around here, including any of the diners. The portions are well over the norm, especially considering the prices. Whatever I have ever ordered was anywhere from good to... More

The staff is always warm and helpful. The menu is quite extensive offering sandwiches, salads, soups and entrees. There is also a list of daily specials. My husband and I... More
