Seafood
Mallards is serving up award winning seafood & Cajun fare with southern hospitality.

Born and raised in Kansas City Missouri, southern hospitality is on the top of our list. It’s more than tradition. It’s ice cold beer, key lime pie, and a party in our backyard. Our family wanted to turn passion into a reality in 2013, so we came together and opened Mallards. With Dad in charge of the menu all of our favorites started showing up! From Jambalaya to Tennessee Hot Chicken, our story finds itself on each and every plate!

    I loved my salmon, I order it every time! My partner didn’t love his hot chicken sandwich, good flavors but the chicken was like rubber…overcooked. We were near the bar so we could hear the staff gossiping about other staff not showing up, etc…kind of amusing but probably not the best thing to do in front of customers. Other than that, everything was great!

    The restaurant was clean and spacious and the staff was very friendly. Our waitress, Karen was very good and checked on us regularly and was very accommodating! However, the food was average at best. The evening was not a very busy one with only about a forth of the tables having customers yet it was rather loud due to the high, industrial ceilings.

    Terrible food and terrible service, first time here with my husband and our server approached us and wiped her nose right in front of us, she also served us our food while on the phone with someone, wth! Have NEVER experienced this in my entire life! The food was flavorless for the prices, the owner must have passed us like 5 times and didn't greet us once but some regulars next to us were treated like celebrities had walked into the door for the whole restaurant to hear, will never ever come back again.

    We had been to the Mallards many times when it was in Bayport. I was at the River Falls a month ago. So we thought we would try here. The food was fabulous. I love the cranberry bread with chicken salad. We took home some of the coconut cake. It's my new favorite dessert!

    We had the Feast of Seven Fishes (Christmas Eve Special). The first two courses were very good. The third course the the Sea Bass and risotto was overly salty, and the onions in the risotto were not welcome or expected or necessary. The fourth course with the Cannoli was dry and brittle. The service was very good and the wine was delicious! Overall a good experience trying something new!

    We went for the feast of 7 fishes and wow what a great experience. The food was fantastic (bravo to the chefs) the service was excellent , the price totally affordable. What a great Christmas Eve night out for dinner. Only suggestion maybe some Christmas music playing in the background otherwise it was a great experience and we would definitely do it again next Christmas Eve night.

    Four of us had dinner at Mallards before a show. Meals included Thai chicken salad, jambalaya, fish and chips and barramundi. All of the dinners were solid and flavorful. Its not a fancy place, but food is good and service is attentive. The place is a little loud, with lots of hard surfaces, but was not super crowded when we were there.

    My wife had a lobster mac & cheese, which was excellent. I had the Bara Mundi, and it was also excellent and prepared perfectly. we started with a nice shared salad and drinks. Service was quick, although we started eating shortly after 530 before most of the crowd arrived. This has become our go to casual spot and we have always had a great meal.

    Food was delicious! We tried this place for the first time, trusting the reviews from here and they were right. Apps were good, we had the coconut shrimp and crab cakes. The sauce with the coconut shrimp was weird but they didn’t need sauce. The Wild Mushroom Papperadelle was amazing! I’d order it every time. Everyone cleaned their plates in our party. Zero issues and great service. It’s an open concept type restaurant so it can get noisy but you can still have a conversation at your table

    We always enjoy Mallard's and this time was no different. We went to lunch and had the Jambalaya and fish and chips, both very good. The service was good; our server was pleasant and efficient. We also had a $10.00 dollar off coupon, that was a plus! We had requested a booth and had our choice of which we wanted. The only issue I had was that it was a bit too cool for our liking.

    My family of 6 had a reservation for Brunch on a Sunday. We were seated promptly but had to ask host for children's menus and crayons for the "littles." Server was very pleasant and patient with my children who like to ask a lot of questions. Bottomless Mimosas and food was excellent! Looking forward to returning!

    We went to mallards to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Atmosphere was quiet on a Monday night. We had a cozy booth. Server was friendly and accurate. Two of the 5 of us have celiac and needed gluten free entrees. Mallards had several great options! We all enjoyed our meals. The server gave my husband a complimentary dessert for his birthday. It was a fun night!
