Went for lunch with a group of friends, there were about 12 of us. The staff had put us in a good part of the restaurant with a view outside and not too close to the other patrons. Our server was prompt in taking our orders and got them all right. At the end she was a long time coming... read more

Pamela the server was very helpful to helping due to dietary restrictions and the chef was prepared to make adjustments to entrees due to dietary reasons. After dinner we were able to compliment the chef Alex on a job well done.

At first entry into the "new" Duffers, aka Mission Creek Golf Club, it has a good ambiance. Newly painted, new decor, corner fireplace with easy chairs, new sinks and tiles in the washrooms but still the old doors and the handicapped latch does not work well and the base of the door frame looks like its coming off. Waitress came... More

I just returned home from a wonderful Singles Group Christmas party event at Duffers. The upstairs dining area was beautiful and tastefully decorated and the meal was totally amazing. I must say their Chef is a 5-star, and the staff all professional and very accommodating.

The food is fantastic, I just had the best brunch I have ever eaten. The flavors are fresh and vibrant. Chef Alex and his staff are doing an amazing job. I can hardly wait to try the rest of the new farm to table menu. I will definitely bring my friends for one of their events or just an evening... More

I've had lunch here 3 times now. Quality of food & prep is very high & a beautiful setting facing onto a golf course (large patio area, as well) Good wine & craft beer choices. I was impressed. Not a typical eatery. Good value for the price of menu items!

Just had the very best hamburger and fries here today! The burger was fresh and flavorful and the fries were outstanding... thin, crisp, with tiny flecks of onion and garlic mixed through. What an enjoyable culinary experience. So much better with the new chef and staff. The decor has been changed to modern, but they need a bit more warmth... More

Live next door to this restaurant and happy to see all the renos, new management, new staff and delicious new menu. Farm to table menu with locally sourced ingredients. Fish and Frites are delish but everyone loved what they ordered - bouillabaisse, BLT, Mussels and chicken strips. the Frites were loved by everyone and not a one was left.

This is not the same Duffer's we all disliked. It has a brand new look and a brand new chef. The mussels as well as the grilled caesar with prawns have me craving daily. This is a MUST try!
