Ducks is a must stop in Jacksonville. The menu is original with lots of variety. Brunch has lots of options compared to anywhere else in town. Good place to happy hut drinks as welll. Place is usually hopping.

Nice and quiet lunch spot with excellent food. I had the Southern Charmer grilled chicken breast. It was tender, not dry, and I loved the pimento cheese sauce.

The bar is beautiful. Owner is friendly and personable. I had the seafood mac n cheese on my first visit and fell in love. My only complaint is they did not have it on the menu on my second visit.

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!
