Was disappointed

We had heard great reviews for the lobster, but 2 of us had lobster and were disappointed because it was over cooked. The others in our party were pleased with their meals but not over joyed. So I will give this restaurant an average and hope they will check how they cook their lobster. We had free... read more

Driving around we found Duffy's. Seems many are regulars. Wife had the Florida Lobster tail. Must have said ten times this is s lot of lobster and tastes great. I had the shrimp Scampi. Six jumbo shrimp, pretty good. Lot of choices of Florida theme cocktails. Very good. Service was slow price is moderate. Try to avoid the rush periods.

More for a average meal, but the food was okay. Service slow and tables too close for me. Close to our Inn and an easy walk.

This was our stop for dinner because someone in our group got a free pie coupon for each of us. It was busy and a bit of a wait to get in. The service was good and the food was also good, but expensive for the small portions. The pie is said to be the best in the Keys, along... More

We were staying close by so stopped in for lunch. The food was not very good, the waitress was ok but brisk. Nothing special. Don't waste your time

Came to Duffy's for an early dinner. We were seated without a reservation. The waitstaff were prompt and pleasant. We ordered steaks all around. They came with warm bread loaf for the table and salads. I looooved the bread. Steaks were properly cooked and tasty. i also had shrimp which were delicious.

We stumbled across this gem by accident . We were exploring the area around our hotel , the Casa Marina , and we decided to give it a try my wife had the fillet mignon and I had the prime rib. Both were out of this world. We had been eating seafood all week and we wanted some red meat... More

We stopped here and shared the prime rib and lobster and we were very happy. We had the gator bites as an appetizer and lovely bisque soup as well. This is nice and tucked away off duval street and was nice and cozy and quiet.

We were at the Truman Hotel just down the street for here. We walked by earlier in the day and decided to go here for dinner. The food and service was good. The place was pretty full even though we went early.

Strangely, I expect that a "Steak and Lobster House" would have fresh lobster, especially in the middle of lobster season. They were out of both Florida and Maine lobster, except for "lobster tails," which have been frozen. The ambiance is fine.
