About Us

Nestled just east of Matthew Knight Arena on The University of Oregon Campus, Wild Duck Café has become a local favorite. Our outstanding cuisine is made with care using locally sourced ingredients and scratch made sauces. With daily specials, a rotating featured mac and cheese, and fresh soups, there is always something new to try. Our impeccable service and a comfortable, casual atmosphere make Wild Duck Café a great place for all of life’s celebrations.

If you are visiting Eugene for a University of Oregon Basketball or Football game, or attending an event at historic Hayward Field, Wild Duck Café should be on your list of places to go. We have a huge collection of University of Oregon memorabilia including an original score board from Mac Court, a 22 foot tribute image of Steve Prefontane, the game ball from "The Pick", and our giant Heisman duck signed by beloved QB Marcus Mariota (a great photo opportunity!)

Wild Duck Café is a perfect gathering place for large groups of up to 30. Two special tables grace the dining room: Our Koa table made from a singular slab of ancient Koa wood from the Big Island of Hawaii will seat up to 16 guests; Our Juniper table, made from a single juniper tree from Eastern Oregon and will seat up to 12.

The walls of Wild Duck Café are also adorned with the local art of Ken Scott, River Run Gallery, Dan Hitchcock, Randy Otiz, Metal Zen, Dustin Beck, New Legacy Woodcraft, Greg Adams, John Stahr. Click on the links to read more about these great local artists.

What They're Saying . .
Both Clara and I were delighted with the great service that Wild Duck provided. We had many compliments on the fine food. My brother, Tom, is the general manager of a Marriott hotel, and he has been in the food and beverage and hospitality business his whole career. He made a point of telling me how impressed he was with the quality of your operation - the planning, the staffing, the service, and the food. Thanks for a great job!
