Gastro Pub
The Cellar at Duckworth’s combines gastropub fare from our chef-driven menu, with a tap list of specialty and rare beers served at appropriate temperatures to their styles, and signature cocktails that are hand crafted to order by our mixologists. Inspired by an era of time that’s long past, the underground space built originally in 1912, naturally has a speakeasy, prohibition-era feel with its original brick walls and exposed ceiling joists. Even our attentive staff dresses the part from the era. We hope to take you back in time for a bit while enjoying good food and drink with friends and family.

    We had a great experience at the Cellar at Duckworth’s. I appreciated that our server shared with us the history of the building and how it had been a prohibition era speakeasy. The noise level was a little loud as it does have a very lively bar in the dining area. The food was outstanding in flavor and the portions were of good size. We will definitely be back!

    The burrata cheese salad was exceptional as was my strip steak. My husband had the char-grilled oysters and the market fish of the day (sea bass) that was served with risotto, all expertly prepared. The risotto was out of this world.

    Last night was a typical double date night for us. However, there was nothing typical about our dining experience. Our service was perfection and the food was absolutely phenomenal ! We will be back very soon!! 10/10 recommend to the short rib dumplings, the steaks, the grilled oysters, scallops and the braised short ribs!

    The service was great. The food was ok. The Brussels and short rib dumplings were great. The short rib and grits and charred romaine was ok. Both very salty. The drinks were ok, not great. Our server was amazing and the ambiance was good.

    Not worth the cost. First of all they were not able to honor the reservation time. We had to wait for almost 45 minutes before they seated us. The front desk was overwhelmed. The food was so so. I ordered the braised ribs and they were dry. My girlfriend ordered the New York steak and it was not worth 51 dollars. Certainly not steakhouse quality for the price. Ambience was not speakeasy . Lighting was too bright and the noise levels were very high. The drinks were fine but not outstanding.

    This is a restaurant that my husband and I are always raving about, so we decided to take some friends out for a celebratory dinner, and we were absolutely embarrassed by the experience that we had. The food was amazing, as to be expected, but the service was below par. Our server was MIA for extended periods of time, our drinks were rarely refilled, and the dessert that we ordered never came. We will give it another chance because the food is delicious, but we were very disappointed with this trip.

    Food was delicious, drinks weee awesome, our server with Jessi and she was fantastic with great recommendations! We ordered several absolutely delicious small plates: Pork Dumplings (Jessi’s recommendation), the Pork Buns, Truffle Mac & Cheese, the Tuna Tartare (Jessi’s recommendation), the waffle cones, and the truffle fries. All were absolutely amazing. We also started out with the two Holiday Drink Specials recommended by Jessi, as well as the Blood and Sandy cocktail and the Christmas Negroni. We will absolutely be back!

    The food and drinks were overpriced for what you got and I’m no stranger to a 300$ meal. Both my fish and my boyfriend’s steak were undercooked. Had to send back the steak.
