Blue Duck Bar & Bistro is reliably the most packed venue for good food and drink in Milton, just a few minutes walk down Milton Road the road from Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium from its Park Road address. The Duck, as it’s fondly known to its loyal horde of regulars, has a solid list of share plates heading up its menu, besides perfect steaks, larger mains, a huge selection of burgers, salads and desserts. Of course, the bar is the envy of many a pub in the area, and along with the food, the space itself, The Duck is a top choice for a leisurely meal, a few drinks, or your next big celebration. But before to to book before you duck in, especially on game night!
Blue Duck Bar & Bistro’s spacious interior, complete with a modern bar and a full-service bistro, outdoor terraces and decks, and prime location – down Park Road and a quarter-hour’s stroll to Suncorp Stadium, easily reached via public transport from elsewhere in Brisbane – have made The Duck a neighbourhood fixture in Milton. Long a top spot for casual tapas-style dining and modern Australian cuisine, The Duck also offers prime steaks, generous main courses, and some of the best burgers in town.
Top picks from Blue Duck Bar & Bistro’s tapas menu include the wild mushroom arancini, spicy Szechuan calamari, the laksa prawn hot pot, and the chef’s selection of a trio of premium cheeses served with quince paste, apple slices and crackers. The 300g MSA rib fillet steak comes with cherry tomatoes, baby broccolini and either roasted kipflers or mash, while the confit duck Maryland is also a lavish option if you’re looking for a big bite in Brisbane. As for the burgers, these babies are a favourite among Milton locals who like to duck in for a couple of quick schooners and a solid feed – we challenge you to go for the huge Primetime, with a 300g beef patty, smoked cheddar, BLT, onion and BBQ sauce.
Excellent little bar and restaurant. Very reasonable prices for delicious food. I had the beefy blue burger myself (Juicy beef patty with blue cheese, swiss cheese and mushrooms, mmm) and my partner had the duck confit. Both were absolutely beautiful. Nice selection of beers and drink specials as well. Definitely come, it's much better than the place it replaced! The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

Nice spot on Park Road. Decent sized burgers and sweet potato fries to die for! Service a little slow. Always a bunch of people there on Friday afternoons when I walk past.
