The Wild Duck has great service, great wine and beer, while being dog friendly outside. They have a very good happy hour menu. We enjoyed the "Wimpy Burger". It is small but very tasty. Great place for a summer afternoon stop.

Walked here before a concert. Good beer. Good food. Service slow, we were expecting to take awhile. But the service was very slow. My wife went to the bar outside to get a beer. Instead of waiting. We left cash for the bill, instead of waiting for the waiter to process a charge, even though someone else in our party... More

Walked in expecting a college bar with typical bar food and was very pleasantly surprised. We had a party of six and all really enjoyed their meal. I had the Gorgonzola pasta and it was really good. Many places would over power the fresh pasta with too much sauce, but it was not the case here. The flavors were well... More

Decent food. Burgers seem to be the main focus. Also, alcohol. Good beers. Service was slow, but we went in the middle of the afternoon at an off time. Loved the decor. Friendly people. I'd eat here again.

Went to this location for a quick bite to eat on the recommendation of the hotel front desk employee. Very cool place. I had the Steak Sandwich and it was on point. Good place for a college hangout, but also for a family during non college sports nights.

Marginal food with friendly, but ineffective service at best. It was a busy Thursday night and that may not have helped, but we expected more. I ordered their grilled salmon and asked specifically that it be prepared medium-rare. The waitress joked that “of course that’s what we’ll do—we hate to overcook the salmon. You’ll be very pleased.” I wasn’t. It... More

I recently grabbed dinner with a friend at Wild Duck Cafe and wasn't impressed. There isn't a good spot for two people to sit and eat. It is all either oversized booths or exposed tables. Service was slow and not particularly friendly. However, the greatest mark against Wild Duck is that the food isn't very good. The word I'd use... More

Love the food and the atmosphere. Located in the heart of campus, you can dine as you people watch out the large picture windows. The food is creative and delicious!

They were very accommodating for our party of 12. Huge portions one person would have trouble finishing! The decor is fun and Oregon sports inspired! The staff and management were friendly, inviting, and eager to please. Will definitely return next time I'm in Eugene.

Typical pub food but well done. Fun atmosphere for the sports fan - lots of big screens, big bar, great energy. Great location, especially for basketball, as it is located across from Mathew Knight arena. Make sure you get the house made chips - delicious !
