I'm not really sure who all was the clientele, but I can say we had a blast here. It's wicked dive-y, but I'm into that sort of thing, and so are my friends. We were approached by some questionable characters, but in a non-threatening way. We really enjoyed ourselves. It's definitely not for everyone though.

We read a review of this restaurant where the reviewer was upset by the "dive bar" atmosphere. We like dive bars so we had to try it out. Admittedly, we only drank so I cannot comment on the food. The bar is sort of a dive bar but not real 'divey". The bar tender was very friendly and made good... More

Arrived for a couple of beers. The bar is down the stairs from the Watershed restaurant(great oysters). Really happy to find a sports pub in the area. There are a lot of bars but not many for sports. It was also really cool to have a Oregon Ducks game on live and not to have too many dirty husky or... More

We always stop at Ducks and Drakes on our visits to Leavenworth. Jesse, one of the bar tenders is our favorite! Good drinks and good food too!

I want to like Ducks and Drakes and I kind of do, but I wish they would dim the lights and soften things up a bit. It is a great location in the lower level and the food and service are good. Just is not quite the pub atmosphere that I wish it were. So much potential. I do like... More

The sign announced world famous fish and chips, so we went. We got a great outside table, clean, and a waiter right away. I went to the WC, which took me through a basement like dive bar from the 1970's. Where is the upkeep? Do something better with this space! It was so starling, that my male friend and I... More

We really enjoyed the outdoor seating area. It is down some stairs and off the main street. It was nice to unwind a bit before re-joining the crowds. The food is nothing special, but the service was good.

We went there for lunch, our party ordered the fish & chips which was very good and generous portions. I had the Philly cheese steak sandwich, which was ok, nothing special. Our server was saying how great the French Onion soup was, so I ordered that. It was the WORST I have ever had. It was a VERY salty broth... More

If you're looking for high-class, look elsewhere. Ducks and Drakes is a typical bar--not the cleanest place on earth, pull tabs, TVs showing sporting events. Bartender was great, drinks were just fine. Not a place I'd like to hang out in for hours, but great for a quick drink.
