The Duck Inn Taproom is a friendly, welcoming neighborhood restaurant and bar waterfront on the Perkiomen Creek. “The Duck” as it is commonly referred to is located on the first floor of the historic Perkiomen View Hotel. Painstakingly built into the hillside on the bank of the Perkiomen Creek, construction was completed in 1915 after nearly a decade of hard work. The Hotel and bar catered to wealthy city folks who traveled by train (the tracks were located on the opposite side of Gravel Pike) to
escape the summer heat to relax, swim and canoe in the Valley. The Taproom’s location on the first floor varied over the years from the front of the building, to the far back of the building and finally to the middle of the floor where the horseshoe shaped bar makes its home today.
The Duck Inn and Hotel have been completely revitalized while carefully preserving the old charm of the
early 1900’s and enabling our guests access to the water’s edge. Please join us to experience the
dramatic changes. Come see the gorgeous panoramic views of the Perkiomen Creek and the wildlife
that resides on and in the creek. Every meal is made to order with the finest ingredients and prepared
with pride. Our friendly staff welcomes you to stop by for your favorite ice-cold beer on tap or a
specialty cocktail in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.
