Restaurant Review

The Black Duck restaurant is a high end, BYOB restaurant popular with diners who enjoy nouvelle American cuisine with a slight Asian fusion influence

Set in a Victorian house, the decor is simple, though attractive. There are several open dining rooms with white walls, black-and-white photographs of old Cape May, Wicker ceiling fans, potted palms and tables set with small metal pails and live herbs.

Chris Hubert  is the owner and Executive Chef. Mr. Hubert is able to pull of exceptional dishes of nouvelle American cuisine with a slight Asian fusion influence, using their well prepared combinations of tastes and ingredients. However, the menu infrequently changes and you are not apt to find many new, inspiring dishes.

For starters, the Black Duck restaurant serves up outstanding warm bread which paves the way for high expectations --- which they are sure to deliver on.

The homemade desserts are top of the line and change with the seasons

During the summer months they offer an Early Bird Dinner three course prix fix menu

Families with small children are not recommended.

There is limited on site parking

Open with seasonal hours. They are open during the summer for dinner nightly at 5pm, During the month of June they are open six days with closings on alternate Mondays & Tuesdays

Also open in February for Valentine's Day and President's Day Weekend Beginning at 5 PM and on Friday and Saturday every week until March.

The Black Duck restaurant can accommodate small, intimate weddings, private parties, rehearsal dinners for catered events.
