Small and well-staffed. Drinks and food were great. Highly recommend the tuna poke and veggie tacos.

My wife and I shared a large Caesar salad and veal piccata and chicken cordon bleu entrees. All excellently prepared and flavorful with large portions. The only downside was the high noise level of The Duck. Otherwise, everything was excellent and worth the prices. The teramisu desert didn't disappoint. Highly recommended for anyone in Sturbridge.

Loved everything about this place!!! Sat at the bar for dinner. Live music was great. Our bartenders John and Rachel couldn’t have been better . They were fun but professional and they both made excellent cocktails. Food was fabulous! We had the special clam flatbread and we both had salads with steak tips on top. Both cooked perfectly. All around lovely evening. We will definitely be back!!!

We have been to The Duck a number of times, and have had different meals every time. They never disappoint with the quality, tastiness, and presentation of the food, variety of beers & coctails, and outstanding service! Thanks for another great night!!

The Greek burger is really good, my husband had the chicken Parm which he always liked but last night it was chewy and the pasta was well over done.

The Duck is one of our favorite places in the area. The perfect spot for a special occasion or just meeting with old friends for a leisurely weekend luncheon. The service is exemplary and always timed to your wishes, whether you're in a rush or want to close the place over coffee. Every appetizer and entree (and we've had most of them) is delightful and covers a wide range of tastes and preferences.

Waitress was friendly and efficient. The noise level was high. The tacos were so so. Needed more sauce. The chowder was mediocre. The risotto was food but not great.

My wife and I loved it. We ordered the Cod and the Salmon dishes and switched midway through. Both were terrific. We will recommend The Duck to anyway looking for really good in the Sturbridge area.

Great food. Reasonable prices. Attentive waitstaff. Delicious veal Parmesan, risotto, house salad, clam chowder and meatballs. Chocolate mocha layer cake was to-die for! Can’t wait to go back.

The food and service were excellent. Waitress was helpful and accomodating with requests. We enjoyed the attmosphere though it was noisy - crowded with patrons. The music was a nice touch-classic folk and rock.

We will go there again when in the area. We went for a brithday dinner.

The atmosphere was very good an we sat at a high-top table . Our server, Rachel was excellent providing great service while adding a sense of humor as well. The chicken parm was very tasty however I was expecting a thin piece of crispy chicken but received a very large thick chicken breast not typical of ones I have had at other restaurants. My wife loved the short rib taco's that were very tasty. We would like to visit again for dinner as the menu has some items of interest.

Nicely done! Exceeded our expectations, met our hopes! Enjoyed a tasty version of Canadian Poutine. In addition to cheese curds, small bits of cheese were mixed into the gravy and potatoes. Their rendition of chicken Parm was excellent! Went on a Sunday for early dinner.

I got the risotto and half the rice was still hard and it came in one big mush instead of proper risotto with separate rice. The drinks were good and atmosphere was nice but food was subpar.
