Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey was so crowded, we just drove up the next street we could find and let Garmin find us a place to eat. We were thrilled with Duffy's Tavern. The food was great and the special service we received from the staff was superb! Rick's jokes were a bit corny, but we had some to flash back... More

Duffy's is a popular cozy neighborhood pub with a menu that features wings, burgers, sandwiches, entrees, and nightly specials including spaghetti and steak. Good food, and the club sandwich was large enough for 2-3 people. Although there are tables and booths, it's fun to sit at the bar and converse with the friendly locals, wise-cracking wait staff, and Rick the... More

Based on the Tripadvisor rating of 203/210 I probably would have never even considered eating here. I hesitate to write this review because I really don't think the folks at Duffy's want to be "discovered". I've been in California for about a week, staying in hotels, eating in touristy and neighborhood restaurants, and would say without hesitation, this was the... More

This is basically a military hangout and of course that is not a bad thing but when you get a little older you appreciate a friendly attitude and at least considerate service. I hate to write a review like this but Duffys deserves it. I have no idea why the owners have not replaced the wait staff by now unless... More

Duffy's is a tavern and is great as such. If you want to drink, eat or both, they have it all. The food is simple and good, as you would expect in a tavern. Yes, it is small and cramped for some, but that is what you get with a tavern usually. The staff is always friendly and willing to... More

We’d been customers of this place for 30 years. Til a couple of weeks ago. And now we’ll never go back. Here’s why: We hadn’t been to Duffy’s in a while and were craving a burger, so we headed there on a recent weekend around 2 pm. When we walked in the door, the place was deserted, save for a... More
