Restaurant Review

The Black Duck restaurant is a BYOB restaurant popular with diners who enjoy nouvelle American cuisine in a simple, upscale setting.

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.

Black Duck is owned and operated by Executive Chef Chris Hubert. Chef Hubert serves up a well-executed menu of nouvelle American cuisine with a slight Asian fusion influence. However, the menu infrequently changes, and you are not apt to find many new inspiring dishes.

The homemade desserts are well-prepared, tasty, and changes with the seasons.

During the warmer months there is outdoor dining on picnic style tables .

Families with small children are not recommended.

Open with seasonal hours. They are open during the summer months, Wednesday - Saturday Starting at 5pm.

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

Note: They have a 3% surcharge on all credit card payments.
