This is where the locals have their burgers and beer. Nothing fancy at all just a great atmosphere and cold beer (kitchen roll for napkins). We've been coming here for a few years now to this family run bar. Basic seating with great service from bar staff. Burgers are superb (no fries on menu). Bud on draught for $1 what... More

I have heard so much about Duffy's Tavern from my friends, and that it was one of the top 10 hamburgers places around. It was a great disappointment, to begin with, there is no table service. You are expected to clean off the table from the patrons before you, go to the bar and place your order, then go to... More

We recently visited Anna Maria Island and Duffy's was recommended by our hotel and friends. This is a little hole in the wall, but it was the best cheese burger we have ever had. They do not have french fries which is a little disappointing but their excellent potato salad more than made up for that. Nothing fancy but great!

I have passed it 100 times but had never been in. It is a small place with some but not a lot of atmosphere. We went in for lunch and sat at the bar. Burgers seems to be what they are known for. We ordered burgers but they do not serve fries. They have bags of chips like you would... More

It seems like this place has a chip on it's shoulder in my opinion. Their Supposed "rival" burger joint is much better to me in every way(food, service,atmosphere). My husband enjoyed this place and thought the burger was good but we both agreed the other restaurant famous for their burgers on the island (Skinnies) was much better.

Used to have great burgers. Since they've moved they have lost their mojo. Sterile atmosphere, burgers aren't nearly as good as they used to be.

Small family friendly bar with great sandwiches. I would say about as good as they come. The atmosphere is not a lot to speak about but the food and service makes up for it.
