The Legend of The Crooked Duck

As a young boy, Joseph Rooney was told the legend of “the crooked duck” by his uncle at the family’s summer house on Island Lake in Illinois. The legend is about a man who accidentally hit a duck while he was out water-skiing on the lake. Everyone on the boat was horrified at what they had just witnessed, and thought for sure he had killed the duck. As everyone sat there staring at the water in disbelief, and what they thought was a dead duck, it started to move.

All of a sudden, it started to swim towards the shore in a very peculiar manner. When it reached the lake’s shore it waddled away, but it was quite obvious the duck’s neck was now crooked. The duck with the crooked neck was seen from time to time by people out on the lake, an acknowledgement to the resilience of a duck. Joey never forgot about the legend or the duck, and “The Crooked Duck” is his tribute to that duck!

The Crooked Duck is truly a hidden gem! The atmosphere is truly inviting with the old country feel. The menu has something for everyone, and their prices are very reasonable.

High quality food with a home-cooked feeling. The duck bacon is awesome and the bloody mary's are among the best I've had that weren't homemade. Attentive staff and cute location. Will definitely return in in Long Beach.

If you're looking for a high-quality breakfast with huge portions and fair pricing, do yourself a favor and stop by the Crooked Duck! Their servings are massive - I usually end up having to take quite a bit home for later, which is not a complaint! Great-tasting breakfast food, especially their pancakes, definitely check it out!

Stopped by last Sunday based on Yelp reviews and I am so glad we did. Sunday definitely equates to waiting, but it's worth the wait. Fyi, you can order drinks while you wait. Anyway, our waitress Maritza was amazing. She was knowledgeable, made great recommendations, and was super attentive. I tried the chile verde omelet and IT WAS TO DIE FOR!!!!! Prices were also very reasonable. Do not pass on this place!
