    These 4sq tipsters just ooze pretension and entitlement. Duckling is what it is: a VERY good craft beer bar with a limited food menu. Killer burger and thin sliced fries. Welcome addition to Smith St.

    Awesome beer and food selection! They have serious beer variety with 30 taps, including their own specialty Ugly Duckling draft. And the food is fantastic -- highly recommend the chicken and waffles!

    Chicken and Waffles. The omlette may say brisket, but it does not come with brisket. They will make an accommodation and add brisket if you ask. Made a beermosa special for us midwestern folks.

    Don't follow the pretentious reviews. It's a great bar to begin your night, end your night, whatever. Had their steak and would say it's one of the best steaks I've had from a non steakhouse.

    New ownership. Service and menu both continue to improve. Draught rotation has much more local focus nowadays. Duckling has even turned itself into a nice little sports bar on game days.

    LOTS of beers on tap, live music on the weekends, all the games. Richie will take care of you.

    Chicken and Waffles heaven, plus fantastic beer selection. The scallop tostada and poutine are also must haves.

    The Ugly Duckling Burger is good. If you don't like your burger pink order it medium well. Medium is just a touch too rare.

    Magners cider on tap – always a delight for us gluten-free folk. A good three-dozen more beers beside it.

    Best Vegetarian Pasta I've had in many years. It's a great new spot and I hope it stays.

    The 1911 Original Hard Cider is the best drink on Smith Street, IMHO.

    Thoroughly mediocre. Underwhelming food, haphazard beer list, derivative decor, overpriced. It feels like a chain restaurant's take on Brooklyn. With so many better options on Smith, don't go here.
