Nice location....comfortable bar setting. The salad was fresh with good flavor. The slow braised short-rib came with buttered noodles and root vegetables. Service was excellent as well.

We were on the way home from Boston, we had stopped at Treehouse brewery and was told the Duck has good food and family friendly. The recommendation was spot on. Would definitely go back when in area.

The Duck is located upstairs in the building so when you walk in its a little uncertain where you need to go but you'll figure it out. We love the rustic, relaxed setting and always sit at the bar: nice big counter top, super comfy...More
