Let's start with the appetizer. "Ceviche style jumbo shrimp" - NOT! I was anticipating ceviche. The description listed on the menu stated "cilantro lime marinated shrimp tossed with fresh chopped tomatoes, onions..." Glorified shrimp cocktail is what was presented. Jumbo shrimp (boiled) hanging on the edge of a martini glass with ceviche mixture in the bottom of the glass and... More

I recently visited this restaurant with high hopes after reading reviews on this site. I'm a sucker for a good Irish pub and have been to quite a few across the country over the years. My experience at Duffy's was anything BUT a good night out. The "scenic view" on the outdoor seating is of a side street with city-block... More

ChrisWalsh80, Owner at Duffy's Tavern, responded to this review

Dear Sir, My immediate apologies for your seemingly horrific experience. However, as the owner of an establishment that has had an exceptional reputation for over 30 years (maybe longer than you've been alive), I find that I must defend Duffy's in this particular review. First of all, you did not visit us on a Friday night like you posted. You... More

Duffy's is a pretty good place to go to. We've been there several times and the food and drink are well worth the trip. It's not a bad "watering hole" either!

This bar and restaurant has one of the classiest atmospheres on Campbell Ave. Definitely yummy. I love the buffalo tenders with the house dressing (even though I tend to be a blue cheese girl, this non-ranch house is really good!) and my fiance always gets the Irish Wolfhounds - two hot dogs in buns, slathered with mashed potatoes, bacon and...

Visited here a few times. An Irish pub type of restaurant. Nice wooden large bar and separate restaurant dining area. Typical Irish menu. Moderate prices. Nice portions. Parking in back of restaurant and across the street. Beach nearby for a walk on the man made walk along the beach after dinner.

In town for a class and was looking for a bite to eat and a few cocktails. Bartenders were awesome....they put on the hockey game when I asked and offered suggestions of other places in town. The coconut shrimp was perfect!!!

I enjoy the corned beef at this pub and restaurant. The customer service is average. It's great for a quick bite with the family or for an Irish pub experience when you are looking for one.

Very cozy, authentic atmosphere and always super clean. Great comfort food and always prepared fresh. I know it's not an authentic Irish dish, but they have the best Quesadillas I've ever had and their meatloaf is fantastic.

Ate at the bar, nice clean place. The Duffy burger was excellent. Done just right. Nice atmosphere at the bar and in the dining room. Can't speak for the rest of the menu.

We used to go here often. I had a certificate to use and it was just SO not good. We sent back two meals in our party. The flavor was bland, really not of quality and shockingly enough... I know the manager was there, and even w/ sending back two meals, he never came over. If you're a local person... More
