The food was absolutely delicious. We had the duck and it was juicy, crispy and tasty. We also tried the octopus and for dessert, the tres leches bread pudding and gotta say it's hands down the best food I've had in a few years.
The service was also excellent which made the experience all the more enjoyable.
I can't wait to go back and try the other menu items.
Very clean and safe. The wings were Great! As always. The fun drink selection is tasty and exciting to try. We went with a family style steak. It was yum. The fixings were yum. My only knock was the fatty parts of the steak. Could’ve been trimmed a little better. It seemed darker than normal but it was date worthy lighting in the bar seating area. Always down to earth and well done service.
Drinks food and service was fantastic !
Felt safe. Ate good. Drank phenomenally.
Wonderful date spot! On the pricier side but the cocktails are awesome and the food is delicious.
Great meal and amazing service as always!! The Valentine’s specials were so good. Especially the potstickers!! I love this place! My favorite restaurant in Chicago!
Incredible meal per usual. Their COVID19 safety protocols were some of the best we’ve seen. We’re so glad they survived.
The Rotisserie Duck entree lived up to its hype. It was cooked to perfection both, the breast at one temperature and the dark meat at another. The duck fat fries were just so-so, nothing special and would not recommend ordering. Definitely worth ordering was the marinated burrata. The tres leche cake interpretation was awesome, especially with the tepaché pineapple compote!
Awesome as always. The special Szechuan duck for Lunar New Year was amazing!
It is a small space and the table behind us was really over the top loud. The quantity of tuna on my plate for the price was embarrassing and I left hungry and poor.
Lovely dinner from start to finish!
Delicious food! We recommend ordering their specialty roasted Duck which is absolutely amazing! We also loved Farm Roast, Grilled Octopus, Tuna Filet and Cheese Curds!
The Duck Inn always blows my expectations out of the water.
LOOOOOOOVVVVVVEEEEE Duck Inn. Such a good menu that is in accord with the genuinely nice waitstaff. The food is extraordinary, a down home sensibility with the perfect dash of bling. Surprising taste and texture combinations that elevate to the extraordinary. Thank you Duck Inn!!!!
Perfect date night. Loved every minute of it. Amazing food, drinks, and service.
Food and drinks were amazing! Very clean and covid friendly. There were workers cleaning regularly to make sure it was clean & safe for all.
Great ambience with even better food and cocktails. Will defiantly be back soon.
We ate inside and were beyond impressed with the COVID-19 precautions taken, especially since they didn’t detract from our dining experience. Our service, cocktails, and meals were excellent . Can’t wait to go back!!!!
Delicious! Great heated tent with plenty of ventilation but also plenty of heat.
Awesome experience with top-notch food, fun atmosphere, neighborhood feel and excellent service. Oh, and great drinks and wine selection. Can't wait to go back.

Love their unique & flavorful dishes! Cocktails are delish too!
Amazing food, delicious drinks. Overall great experience. Definitely made a good choice celebrating my birthday here.
Horrible service and I would never go back..! We didn’t even order that’s how rude the ppl was
Delicious food and fun drinks. Very covid safe. Try the bread pudding for dessert.
Because of Covid, we sat on the heated patio which was nice and warm. We felt super comfortable given the circumstances! The duck was cooked to perfection! Drinks and mocktails were amazing and they had an adorable little march shop set up for the holidays! Cannot wait to go back!
Duck In is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago. The only bad thing is that this last time we were seated in the tent outside and they didn’t have heat so it was kind of freezing.
Great experience, in the midst of a pandemic.
Food was innovative and delicious - loved everything about our visit!
Quality drinks and appetizing food. Highly recommend.
Great food. Seems like they thought we were a party of 3. We had to keep asking for the fourth utensils, cups, etc.
With restaurants having to make the best of restrictions, they did a goid job. I just wish we were not seated right by the warm air blower. There were more seats to move to a it was not crowded.
Still love that place and will go back.
Very good video, better than it even seemed on the menu!
The ambiance was nice and quiet. Staff was welcoming, accommodating and friendly. The food was ok; but too greasy and in my opinion, overpriced.
Just the best food & drinks & Service & vibe in Chicago. Never anything but delicious and delightful
Patio was charmless, uncomfortable and cold. Service was great. Food was not up to the usual standard but certainly good enough in these times. Oysters were overwhelmed by their prep. Beet salad was bland and seemed to have been sitting in the fridge for a while. Fried chicken plate was quite good, including the greens and a superb biscuit, which was the best bite of the night.
Love this place! The food is absolutely fabulous and so are their fabulous cocktails! I will be back often!
The Duck Inn is my reliable stand-by for great food, great service and a relaxing atmosphere. If I have people coming into town, I try to take them to this restaurant. Everything I've tried has been unique and tasty. I particularly love their seasonal menu options. If you're looking for an unpretentious gastropub with gourmet food, this is the best place to visit.
Duck Inn has also seamlessly adapted to COVID restrictions by having a nice outside, open air area to enjoy a hot drink and have dinner.
Great food and service. Enjoyed the staff so much!
The best patio in the city right now, quiet and inviting. The food is incredible, just what we needed! The cocktails are fantastic.
We had a wonderful experience at the Duck Inn! The service was warm, fast and friendly. The food is out of this world with unique flavors in every bite! We love the Duck Inn and can't wait to go back!
