Great restaurant, bar and food truck reviews for you to find your next favorite place to spend your time like the Duck Island Ale House!!!

Here are a few tasty tidbits that our author left out, totally understandable since he came here and ate under the radar, that I find interesting and I thought you might, too.

Chris Dalton is the owner of the Duck Island and also owns the best 24 hour greasy spoon in the city, Beth's Cafe, right next door.  When we went through our major remodel a few years ago it was his vision that brought the car seats to the front bar and he conceptualized the Fricken Chicken and Duck Balls that we are fast becoming known for.

Chef Rick Gerbus took Chris' ideas and ran with them, using his many years of kitchen experience to create and perfect the flavor profiles on all our dishes.  He is especially proud of the fried chicken, wings, pork shanks, duck balls and fish & chips.  All five are found to be crowd favorites among the regulars here.

The Duck Island has been known for it's great beer selection since 1996.  27 rotating taps and over 60 bottles with a special interest in sour beers and ciders.  Check out our BEERS ON DRAFT page for a list of what we are currently pouring.  I am sure you will find something that will interest you.  We also have a full bar with a well thought out selection of liquor.

I also want to say a little about our Trivia Night...  Hosted by Matt "Fatty" Mueller!  Our trivia night is awesome.  If you are doing trivia somewhere else, stop it!!  Come to the Duck on Tuesday nights and I promise you it will be a fun time had by all.  Matt is funny and inventive.  Never a boring round!  Intelligent enough for you smarty-pants people and entertaining and zany enough for you pop culture whizzes.  This is trivia for everyone.  And there's prizes!  Tuesday nights at 8:30pm. $3 buy-in for the 1st place prize.  There are specials on Tequila drinks ($1 off and $3.50 wells) and our Chicken Lime Tacos are 2 for 3.50!  Unbeatable!  Hope to see you soon!


One other little thing...  We are 21 years and older but, if you are looking to try the fried chicken for your family you can always order to go.

Cheers,
Jackie
