I recently was in Cape May for a festival and happened on to the Black Duck. What a gem of a place. A great menu selection and wonderful service. It dies not have an alchol license so remember to bring your own wine!

I had the pumpkin bisque which was excellent as an app and for the main course I and my wife both had the half duck entree. We both agreed was awesome. Call for reservations the place is a little small but worth visiting if you are in the area.

A lovely find - we are so grateful to the reviewers who came before us and recommended this restaurant and its phenomenal cuisine. We had only a few days in Cape May and dined at two other 'top 5' restaurants on Trip Advisor. Black Duck, though lower rated, was the best experience of the three. Loved the innovative menu, the...

Recently dined on Crab Cakes, which are great and served with fresh sautéed spinach and roasted potatoes. Stilton salad was great with Stilton cheese and apples. Salmon is always great... More

My husband and I have been here for 2 weeks and eaten at several really good restaurants. Black Duck was really top notch. We had the pu pu platter of appetizers because we couldn't pick just one. Each has it's own sauce and tiny salad or cold slaw flavor to go with it. The salmon of the day had a... More

Great service from Kelly our server and each member of the staff. The arugula salad special, while large, never got dull. The pears, nuts, sqash, and cauliflower made each bite a delight. My snapper had a delicious crust and was perfectly cooked, served on a bed of delectable gnocchi, fresh vegies, and sauce. My sister loved her short ribs with... More
