They are also kid-friendly and vegetarian-conscious by offering a “no meat option.” This is a perfect spot for the entire family to indulge in some California-style barbecue around picnic benches and imagine for just a moment that they’re with family, at home.

At Ducey’s, you get to experience authentic Californian flavors from meals made from scratch and prepared with a farm-to-table approach. Here, you get some of the best food with some of the best views.
