I have eaten here a couple other times and really enjoyed the food. Today it was ok. What really got me more is how dirty and run down this place is. From the moment you see the landscaping outside to the dirty carpet etc inside. It needs some freshening up. It's not a dive bar, its a nice family restaurant with mostly good food and scenery of the river.
Very comfortable place, always friendly, good service. Food is good.
Mothers a Day brunch, little hectic, but seated on time. Never rushed, plenty of food, pleasant servers, great view of river.
Thank you for sharing your special holiday with us! We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit!
Came here for mother’s day brunch. We had a 11:15 reservation, got there at 11:05 and waited at the front counter to check in for 20 minutes before anyone even welcomed us and checked us in. After that it took till Noon before we got seated. I can understand that they were busy, but There was no communication while we waited and no apologies. The food for the brunch buffet was cold, they didn’t even have eggs at a brunch. Overall very disappointing. We were charged $122 for 4 people for one of the worst buffets I have ever eaten at and some of the worst service we have ever received. Will not recommend
It was a mother's day brunch, so not the typical day for them. Food was good with plenty of options and we enjoyed the location adjacent to a marina.
We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed!! Thank you for sharing your special day with!
Love the food and the view of the St Croix River. Pleasant place to dine.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We are thrilled that you enjoyed!!
Delightful lunch! Get a away for my Hubbs and I. Food and Service excellent. This is second visit. Planning on bringing our family soon!
Very nice place, on the Saint Croix River,. Great service and food. Everything fresh and all the dishes were very well done. One particularity, they make Eggs Benedictin and omelettes to order. Great idea! If the Benedictines are waiting for you in the Samovar they get soaked. Fried chicken very crunchy and moist. Place to come back!
THe buffet was pretty sparse and the quality of the food just so so. I expected a chef carving ham or roast beef and they did not have that. Most of the items in the hot buffet had little or nothing in them. They sat us back in a corner with no view or ambience, just a view of a computer and desk. Wont come again
Thank you for sharing your holiday with us!
Very disappointed in Easter Brunch this year. We won’t be back after 3 years of going. Overpriced for value.
Great variety for Easter brunch. Loved everything but the deviled eggs.
Great food and excellent ambience.
Thank you! We are so pleased that you enjoyed!
I love the OpenTable app!! I was glad that I was able to make the reservation ahead of time because of it being a busy night at the restaurant and we had a party of 6 coming in. There was barely a wait time and the food was excellent. I liked that fact that the manager came around to the tables asking how things were going and took care of us at the end. We'll be back!!
Thank you for sharing your experience! We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed!!
This is my second visit to Mallards in 3 weeks. We find the food to be outstanding, the service very good and the servers extremely friendly. Now the we have discovered Mallard's, we will be making it a weekly event. Very pleasant.
Thank you! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience!
We went craving Lobster, so were disappointed that we couldnt get lobster tail with our prime rib dinner. Recommend that the online menu state what is offered at Surf n Turf Saturday vs. listing as it was a bit deceiving. Prime Rib was delicious but would have liked a salad along with the dinner.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! Feedback is how we improve.
Great place to meet up with friends.
Thank you, we are thrilled you enjoy!
The food, atmosphere and price were reasonable. The ice tasted like frying grease. The five people in our group each noticed it in our water. Then two ordered soda and still noticed the fried grease taste. We brought it to our servers attention, she apologized for it but that’s where it ended. The wine tasted fine, so it wasn’t dirty glasses. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen but this wasn’t pleasant.
Thank you for letting us know. Feedback is how we learn and improve.
Fish and chips were good but for the price, two small pieces of fish was very disappointing. Overall, I would have rated it higher if the service was a little faster and, again for the price, a third piece of fish. Also other tables were getting a bread serving but we didn't until I asked for it. I was told it was still in the oven but other tables received theirs even as the waitress was talking to us.

Great food, great views, great food, great service.
Thank you for sharing your experience! We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit!!
The food is good, not great. But the view makes up for anything the food lacks (especially daytimes or at night during Daylight Savings Time). Besides the typical ducks and geese flying over the river, one often see bald eagles and hawks. We have always had very pleasant waiters and waitresses, so that combined with the view makes this a definite favorite of ours. Food suggestions: lobster roll, crab cakes, fish fry (I get mine broiled) during Lent.
Thank you for sharing your experience!
The food certainly was the best part of the dinner; however, as an all you eat fish fry, I was disappointed that we were there for two hours with reservations starting at 7 and only had two pieces of fish. Very slow!
I was extremely extremely surprised that place is awesome I totally thought it was going to be something different in a negative way I was definitely fooled that place is awesome I would go there any day of the week that place is phenomenal and definitely bring a party bus with me full of new customers thank you so much for a wonderful wonderful experience thank you
We have come to Mallards over last couple years. Service is excellent and food is great. Friday fish during lent was excellent.
first time we've dined inside and it was really delightful. A beautiful view of the river even though it was frozen. but a lovely view. Delightful server. Delicious food. We don't have to wait for patio weather - we'll certainly dine inside again.
Thank you for joining us! We are so glad to hear of your experience!
Very good fish fry. Great light breading. Not too heavy. Friendly host ( big dude) friendly bartender. Not a pretentious place at all. Very chill. Would return again .
Thank you! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed!
We went for the Friday fish fry. Very good fish, light and crispy and hot. Great value. Service was ok. It was busy this time of year for lenten fish eaters.
Place has gone down hill, food and ambience. Won't go again.
Although we had a reservation we had to wait a half hour for others (without reservations) to be seated. Service was very slow. Food was mediocre.
I loved our experience at Mallards on The St. Croix. Very relaxing and intimate atmosphere but still friendly and not too fancy. I recommend the walleye bites for an appetizer, could be the best walleye I’ve had. From the apitezer to the salads and bread to our main dishes we were very satisfied. I had the jambalaya which was delicious and fresh. All for a very reasonable price for the quality of food. Highly recommended.
Thank you!! We are so pleased to hear of your experience!
Valentine's dinner, the starters were great. The entree's were just ok.
Food was excellent. They had a couples menu for valentines but also a regular menu. Well thought out.
Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed!
Fish was fabulous! Blackened was the favorite!
Thank you, so glad to hear! Appreciate you sharing your experience with us!
We love Mallard's. The owner is so very good about letting us order from outside the menu. Our server, Brooke, was wonderful.
Thank you for this kind mention! We are happy to accommodate dietary preferences!
We went during happy hour and ended up deciding on a few appetizers instead of entrees. Drinks were great, food so-so. Crab Cakes were amazing, Tuna Poke was rubbery, and we decided the lime juice on the Seafood Campechana may have been 'Rose's Lime Juice' and was very off putting. The chairs and tables were worn. The deck was closed, of course, but when you walk from the front door to the dining tables, you see all of the summer deck furniture haphazardly stacked up through the windows. Would be nice if the aesthetic were better.
We are sorry to hear your experience wasn't exceptional, and do appreciate your comments. Feedback is how we learn and improve. Thank you.
Very long wait, although waiters and waitresses seemd to be working hard.
The good news was that the manager (?) came to us and apologized for how long it was taking for our drinks and only charged us for two of the three. We appreciated that.
Food and service were good. Mother-in-law ordered the Jambalaya, but they forgot to put the shrimp in it. They grilled some up, and the chef delivered it to the table and apologized. Other than that, we had a great meal, and it was quiet enough that we were able to talk and linger for a while after dinner.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, so pleased you enjoyed!
Very pleasant evening - have never been disappointed when we come here.
Food was delicious! We had the pecan encrusted walleye & needed a doggie bag....the lobster bisque was great too. Live music was very nice. We’ll be going back.
Thank you for sharing your special evening with us! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed!
We almost always have the fried shrimp dinner - so good! I do change out the french fries and cole slaw for a salad, however. Hubby likes the fries and cole slaw. I also really like the honey butter that they serve with the warm bread.
Thank you! So glad you enjoy!
