Service was great at the beginning. I get there is a shortage of servers but our sever kept going over to the tables that sat after us continually and refilling the drinks. And only checked on us after pretty much our food was done. No refills until the end. Besides that food was good.

The Ruddy Duck is hands down one of my favorite places in the world period. In beautiful down town Morehead City NC right on the intercoastal waterway is this GEM. I make it a point to go to this place no matter what at least once a year. The shrimp scampi is absolutely phenomenal, (I'm an Italian guy from NY) there has to be at le ... read more

Pet friendly on the patio. Robin was SO nice and our server, who’s name starts with G, made the visit so pleasant. Even when my little Daisy made a run for the kitchen, the staff laughed it off and brought her back to the table. And the food was really good. Lightly fried flounder was nice and flakey and moist. And the Jalapeño hus ... read more

The most important thing is they have gluten free fried food ! First time we went here the food was bland, you had to a salt your own. We tried it again because I love fried seafood and it was much better. I'm not sure I had to salt it again. both times the strawberry and banana daquiris were stellar both times.

Good food and fast service. Was very busy when visited with a 45 minute wait to be seated but located on the water along Evan's St. makes for a good wait as you can stroll and go through shops/views.

We asked our server for a fuzzy duck 🦆. & an extra glass.. we wanted to split our friend’s favorite drink there in her honor. She’d passed away.. they did one better- split it for us & garnished both glasses. ❤️.
Tammy Creed via facebook.com - Aug 16, 2021
Nice place, the pecan flounder was very nice but a bit dry (maybe ask for a sauce to go with it?). The Cajun fish bites were also nice. The service was pretty fast, but I noticed my party and 2 others, when I was initially waiting, bring their check up front and the reaction from the front desk folks was a bit of shock. They want yo ... read more

The view was wonderful..Toby was a exceptional waiter. The jalapeno hush puppies were wonderful..Clam chowder was on point. sadly the crab cake sandwich was tasteless and mostly bread. French fries were Greasy. The Duck sandwich was a no go as well. We will go again and give it another chance on the off chance it was a fluke.

First dish I tried here was a seafood platter. Very tasty, BUT the 2nd time I had the Crispy Duck and omg was it delicious.

I have been coming to this restaurant three to four times a year. They always impressed me every time there is not a bad dish on the menu. Service is always outstanding.

Best food we had on our trip to the Crystal Coast. For starters: cajun fish bites and jalapeño hush puppies are delicious. You’ll want to order more. For main entree we tried the Ciopinno and Shrimp Scampi Linguine - both were excellent and some of the best seafood dishes we’ve ever had. Danny at the bar was so sweet and helpful. Our ... read more

Always a nice dinner with cute shopping across the street. Ask to sit outside if the weather permits for beautiful views. Yummy drinks and good service. Food is great and there is a nice variety. Also they tend to over estimate wait times in my experience so don't give up!

What can I say other than that it's the best restaurant on the Crystal Coast. Want a casual dinner? A romantic waterfront meal and drinks? A business lunch?
