Our Chef’s take inspiration from Billy Madison who drew a blue duck because he had never seen one before, and he wanted to see a blue duck! Well, since our chefs love classic Adam Sandler humor and innovative cooking, we thought that Bleu Duck was the perfect name to showcase our fun environment and staff as well as our unique and creative menu. Just like Billy, we like to try things that you’ve never seen before! 
 
Bleu Duck Kitchen and Oyster Bar is a full service restaurant that provides a fun and welcoming atmosphere where white linens meet a casual feel to create the new concept of “fun-dining”. Co-Owners Erik Kleven and Jennifer Becker regard each customer as a welcomed friend, and aim to provide them with an experience that is both personal and unique every time they visit.

    Saturday brunch was delicious. The mimosas kept flowing and the food was incredible! The monkey bread and donuts were exactly what my sweet tooth needed! The oysters were incredibly fresh and delicious. The live music was not overly loud and you could still have a normal conversation and was very good! I will definitely be back.

    We had a wonderful experience. Our waiter was attentive and accommodating. We started with very fresh, briny and plump oysters. The street taco cauliflower and lobster bisque were very tasty and well made, we highly recommend both. I had the duck with the street taco fried rice and my husband had the seafood special which was red rob. Our accompanying sides were delicious. Top it off with the best old fashioned my husband had ever had.

    We have eaten at this restaurant 3 times. Service was great and ambiance of restaurant is very cool. Paintings I believe were done by owners daughter. This last time we ate there we ordered the Burrata. The cheese was not bad but the vegetables were poorly done. The lobster bisque which was good. But, the burger is simple and extremely tasty! Don’t miss the burgers and fries.

    Imaginative food with a pleasant dining room and knowledgeable staff. This was a pleasant surprise in Rochester, MN. This was our 5th visit in 4 months. The frogs legs crusted with maple panko on a Mac stuffed waffle was outstanding as was the 16layer strawberry chocolate crepe cake. Previously we loved the butternut squash creme brûlée appetizer. Highly recommend dining at Bleu Duck!

    Our waiter was great and the environment was inviting. The food, however, left something to be desired. I had the Shoyu Ramen and the kimchi salad. The kimchi salad was good-- the issue I had was with the pork that came with my ramen. It was so hard and dry. I let it soak a bit in the broth and that helped a bit. Rather disappointed that whoever made the ramen didn't notice how hard the pork was, or if they did notice, they thought it was acceptable to serve it.

    We eat at the Bleu Duck quite often. But it was a little lacking for lunch. The appetizers were wonderful, desert was amazing. But the Ramen bowels needed some work. The noodles were very mushy and they were just lacking flavor. The first time I"ve ever been disappointed on an entrée.

    The Bleu Duck is the best place for an upscale meal in Rochester. The menu changes regularly and the entrees are always interesting. Usually, it is difficult to decide on a choice as they all sound great. The service is exceptional. The bar makes excellent cocktails.
