Just visited Wild Duck Cafe during our short stay in Eugene. The nachos, made with all organic ingredients were the best I ever had! The avocado breakfast bennies were wonderful as well. Our server was very sweet and helpful. 4 thumbs up! Thank you, guys!!!!

The desk clerk at the Holiday Inn Express recommended this place for a late dinner, and it paid off. Very low key, college town restaurant had good service, and a varied menu. My buddy had the salmon entree, and thought it was excellent. I stuck with an unusual appetizer...duck tenders...which came with a Thai peanut sauce and bbq sauce for... More

Great place to grab a drink and a bite. I stopped in during happy hour. They have deals on food and drink until 6 p.m. Fast friendly service, great craft beer selection.

This place was hopping! Good selections on the menu. Healthy and not so healthy choices. The atmosphere was buzzing with action and game on the TVs. Friendly staff. Would have been a 5 star review if not for the long wait to have our order taken, and bill brought to our table.

Dropped in to get a quick bite to eat, loved that the food has nice added twists on regular bar food. Had fish and chips made from salmon - yummy! Daughter's burger had fresh (not jarred) jalapeños.

My mother and I patronized the Wild Duck Cafe recently. When we walked in, we told the staff that we needed to leave by a certain time, he was very accommodating to this request. He even offered us suggestions on which food would be the quickest to get out of the kitchen. I had the salmon sandwich, and it was... More

Friendly people, good food, fun atmosphere, very close to the University residence halls and, most importantly, great beer selection.

Atmosphere was fun-- it's densely decorated with University of Oregon and Eugene memorabilia. The food is definitely better than pub food, and definitely below fine dining. What we ate was fairly priced, though, so I'll be eating there again.

if you're in Eugene for business or fun, you have to go here. Fun decor and friendly sports-pub service make you feel at home.
