Fun place for a reasonable Burger and cold Beer

Great place to take the trolley to on the island with company for a Burger and Beer, for your meat lovers for lunch. Very Very Casual...One must try @ least once. Reasonable and the Beer is very cold. I love the Collard Greens that they have daily. Paper plates and you order ahead of time... read more

Gets busier and busier with each passing year. No surprise once you have tasted the absolute best burgers and coldest beers anywhere on the planet, eye-rolling, mouth-watering ecstasy.

I have tried the Tuna Nicoise Salad, with rare ahi tuna....delicious, and the pastrami sandwich.The pastrami is made by the owner's husband and is the best I... More

I got the special which was the Reuben sandwich. It was served as a special the day after St Patrick's day. It was awesome. It had more meat on it then I got in a week of sandwiches when I was growing up. My wife got one of the specialty burgers which she also raved about.

5 stars? I went to this place because of all the 5 stars and people raving about the great burgers. They were good, they were ok, certainly not amazing. There really was nothing special to talk about regarding the burgers. They were not terrible, but they were not wonderful. I had the potato salad as well. It was pretty meh... More

Walk in order from the bar burgers are cooked as you wait and the way you ask, no fries available and coleslaw very average but the burger is worth the visit. Nothing fancy!

The debate goes back and forth over whether Duffy's or Skinny's has the best burgers on the island. Heck, try them both! Both serve similar fare, although Duffy's has the tradition, but at Skinny's you can keep your feet in the sand. The drawback to Duffy's is that it is cash only and they do not serve fries, a non...

Went to Duffys in an evening of fun stops around the area. Great burgers as well as pulled pork. Outside seating was available, but a bit chilly. Fun place to meet up with friends.
