About

Welcome to The Blue Duck

Founded in 2014, we’re a New American BYO restaurant located in the heart of Northeast Philadelphia with the feel of a Center City eatery. Tucked inside a strip mall near Holme Circle — mere steps from where co-owners Joe Callahan, Jr. and Kris Serviss attended grade school — the Blue Duck prides itself in crafting delicious dishes that offer a playful twist on traditional classics. And that, most importantly, taste incredible.

Everyday menu items range from $7-$11 and include the 2014 Philadelphia Burger Brawl champion and nationally-recognized Pork Roll Burger (topped with Sriracha mayo and a fried egg), Blue Duck Sandwich (with signature blueberry BBQ sauce) and Quack & Cheese. For dinner, Serviss allows his creativity to shine with offerings such as bacon-wrapped wild boar meatloaf, sweet potato gnocchi and homemade pasta with duck ragout. We also concoct rotating daily drink specials and dinner specials that are posted on our social media accounts

The Duck also offers brunch every Sunday from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.,
highlighted by homemade Chicken & Waffles and our Duck Benedict.
