About

Odd Duck brings the spirit of Austin to its eclectic and unique plates, with a focus on local ingredients and sustainable practices. Starters like the curry-spiced carrots with beer nuts and pickled onions and the beef cracklin' tater tots with creamy Béarnaise sauce are inventive glimpses at the meal ahead. Popular entrée items include the crispy pork belly with pecan jerk glaze, the hearty green tomato and maza fritter with goat chorizo verde, and the wagyu ribeye with oyster mushrooms. Odd Duck also has an extensive craft beer and cocktail list so you can select the ideal complement to your meal. Try the cold shoulder with Scotch, espresso and toasted almond liquor for a delightful pick-me-up.

Odd Duck's made-from-scratch and high-quality standards are as refreshing as its food is delicious. Stop by for the serene ambience and excellent cuisine.

What started out as a food truck has risen through the ranks, changed hands and become an establishment structurally as a brick and mortar building with a solid foundation in culinary technique and execution. Most excitingly at Odd Duck are the ingredients and their arrangements. Both in preparation and presentation plates are as fun to look at as well eat. What at first appears to be a random assortment of fixings taste as meticulously prepared as the palate senses. Mostly an upscale casual feel with a busy center kitchen the space is built for entertainment. The menu is constructed with mostly small plates that are meant to be shared and discussed. You should be ordering the duck with an assortment of veggies that complement and support one of their more hearty dishes. Not to be overshadowed the cocktails are expertly prepared as deconstructed favorites. Most enjoyable in that arena was the margarita which substitutes traditional salt rim with salt foam. How do you even get salt to emulsify into a foam?! Overall and extremely satisfying experience with the perfect amount of novelty to excite any true traveler in need of something new and refreshing, thanks!

Odd Duck is terrific and has been since the food truck days. The food is interesting without being pretentious. We had 4 in our party and tried most of the menu items that day. There was not a single bad dish. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it wasn't a revelatory, life-changing meal. Just great. Which is far better than most places can do.

For our anniversary we decided to have dinner at Odd Duck. We've been there twice before and have always been pleased with the creative and delicious food and drinks. There was a more limited selection of vegetarian items, but otherwise the food was great! It tends to be really busy and fairly noisy, but the food makes it worth it. I do wish the staff communicated with each other better, as we ended up with them trying to serve us a dish we never ordered!

Great seasonal food that is acquired from the local farmers market each Saturday. Bread and pastries backed on site. Service is awesome, food selection and portion size are great.

We received a gift card to the restaurant and finally got around to going. We allowed the waiter to order for us and was extremely impressed with the food and service. Sitting at the bar was the best, we got good service and had a wonderful time. We will come back!

We reserved a table for 4 on open table on a Saturday night at 9:30PM. They called me on Friday to confirm the reservation, and we were able to add one more person to our reservation with no issues. One of our party arrived around 9:10, but was seated immediately without the reminder of the party. The remainder of us arrived at 9:30 and were seated at the table immediately. The menu is meant for tapas style sharing, so we ordered around 15 total dishes between the 5 of us. Reasonable prices, delicious food. Highly recommend the sweet potato dish, the pig face sandwich (reminded us of pate), fried pickles, duck breast, and the wagyu beef dish.

Two of us in our group were vegetarians and one in the group had food allergies. The chef was very accommodating to our dietary needs and we enjoyed a delicious meal of unique and fresh foods. We ordered two small plates each and had plenty to eat! Would definitely recommend!
