I chose this place to entertain a business client after reading the reviews. I found it to be absolutely average and expensive for the quality of the food.

I wanted seafood close to my hotel and I actually passed this restaurant on the way. The food was excellent! Had the clams for an appetizer and salmon for main course. Both were cooked to perfection! I sat at a corner of the bar because I had work to do and the bartenders were very courteous and attentive! The only... More

Just dined at Ducks Grill - omg! The food was so tasty and the chef came out to ask how our meal was! That doesn't happen in this town anymore! Our waitress was attentive but not pushy and very pleasant!
