The service was awful. Our waitress didn’t come over to check on us for an hour straight. We did not get any plates or utensils with our food and had to go up to request things ourselves. It’s a nice atmosphere with decent food but could be amazing if service was even average.

Bar/ restaurant with a little bit better menu than just the normal "bar food" restaurant. Loud. Lots of TV's with games on. Good specialty drinks.

Food was beyond good, shared a bunch of things with the table, loved every single one. The service was a little slow though, however, it was a packed night, the waiter was nice and explained kitchen was backed up.

My sister made a reservation for her and her friends to celebrate her birthday. My father and I were able to make a reservation at the same time to surprise her. The Saturday night staff did a fantastic job of accommodating all of our needs. We were able to successfully surprise the birthday girl and have our table directly across from hers with her friends. The staff followed all Covid regulations but also gave us the best customer service allowing it to be a fun and safe night. We will definitely be returning in the future.

The only reason I didn't rate the food higher is because every single thing we recieved was cold and not even a little cold like very cold. The flavor and everything was great and would of been amazing food had it been served hot. We even got dessert, against my better judgement and ordered the apple tart with vanilla icecream and the tart was colder than the icecream. The service was great, our server was very nice. Additionally the register wasn't working so it was either cash or they had to call you later that night to run your card but those things no one can control. The place is a cool sports bar. I would try it again, could of been a bad night with things not working.

Made 3pm reservations for outdoor seating and we were seated right away. Brunch menu had a variety of options for breakfast items and lunch items. Drinks were delicious and kept with the Duck theme. Food was very tasty and the presentation was awesome. Inside the music was lively and fun. Outside we could hear the music from inside so got the best of both worlds. Very COVID safe, all had masks on and there were partitions to keep tables separated. Would definitely recommend for a fun weekend brunch!

I felt like I was on vacation. Did an October day trip to Long Beach from NYC and had brunch outdoors at The Ugly Duckling. Service was great, good was fine. Energy was nice there; football games were on, tables were full. My meal was good - burger & fries. It’s a bar, not fine dining and like 4 wines to choose from, but decent food and pleasant ambiance.
