Gray Duck Tavern Happy Hour

– A Top Pick for Value & Unique Bites in St. Paul –

In the historic building which was once the former Lowry Hotel, through a beautifully refurbished lobby, you will find the The Gray Duck Tavern.

The decor and menu are very sophisticated, but still approachable for all; The Gray Duck is definitely not a sports bar, but you won’t feel too overwhelmed either. Quaint Perfection.
The staff is kind and very willing to accommodate any needs your party may have. We came as a party of 3 and tried almost every happy hour appetizer (and then some).
The Gray Duck Tavern is in a convenient location right off of Wabasha St. and very close to some other attractions in St. Paul like the Science Museum or Xcel Energy Center. – map

GRAY DUCK HAPPY HOUR (3-6pm & 9-close)


The small happy hour menu is simple and creative and has something for one or many to enjoy.
The Gray Duck Tavern offers a fantastic and chic after work or late night happy hour special (especially awesome for later eves in downtown St. Paul – see also The Handsome Hog).
I will be back soon and recommend this happy hour to anyone in the area at the time.
The group agreed, these were the best: (favorites listed 1st)

Tamarind Chicken Wings

Happy Hour Price: $8

The collective favorite of all the happy hour food menu items from our table.  I also think the wings are the best bang for your buck, if you were planning to get only one thing.
Gray Duck’s chicken wings are not overly spicy and have a citrusy tamarind flavor. They come topped with red peppers which are a nice touch if you need an extra spice kick.

East African Samosa

Happy Hour price: 3$ per

(Seasonal but very popular dish)

Priced per samosa this is a nice way to get something filling yourself or a few to share. They come out from the kitchen warm with a flaky outside and spiced beef inside. Served also with jalapeño yogurt sauce which really adds a lot (if the word ‘yogurt’ scares you think of it as spicy ranch).

Cuban Cigar (Cuban “Egg Roll”)

Happy Hour Price: $3 per

CUBAN “CIGAR” / ham, swiss, pork lechon, cornichon, yellow mustard, orange mojo…3

Gray Duck really out does themselves on the cigar theme.  Think of a crispy, more unique Cuban Sandwich. I love the way this one comes served, presented on an elaborate glass ashtray. You could call it a “cuban egg roll”, but that would not be as fun. The cigar comes with a side of orange mojo sauce, which is like sweet and sour sauce and is a perfect accompaniment.

House G&T

Happy Hour Price: 6$

The only crafted cocktail on the happy hour menu. Served in a low ball with ice and a lime slice. This cocktail is a citrus forward house made tonic and Greenall’s London Extra Dry Gin. Its a fresh take on a classic cocktail. Putting the effort into serving a house crafted tonic is the attention to detail that will make Gray Duck stand out for years to come.
