My boyfriend and I went there for dinner on a Tuesday night I was so disappointed. The price is fine but the food was a huge disappointment. We have been there several times before but this was just bad. The soups all had a film on them, hot food was definitely not at the right temperature as it was barely... More

We found this little diamond in the rough, it's not your "coastal buffet." This place offers more traditional home style food. Lots of variety of beef, chicken,fish and pasta. If your hungry and want a lot of good food this is the stop you crave nothing exotic just good old school buffet . the staff is very cordial and never... More

I went on a Friday for my singing groups yearly installation banquet. They reserved the private dining room on the side. They have a full salad bar. I loved the spring greens with strawberries and candied walnuts. They had breaded and fried scallops, oysters, and clams. A taco bar and BBQ ribs. They also had collard greens, sweet potatoes, mashed... More

We went to Duff's because a group to which we belong selected it as a good place to meet. We were assigned our own meeting room which was nice as we were able to socialize and get to know new people. The wait person was attentive without being intrusive and she quickly replenished the drink selections. Basically at this restaurant,... More

However brunch on sunday also offers carved Roast Beef and Ham, and all breakfast fixings, some cooked to order, plus the regular buffet. ALso read that Fri.... More

I had never been to Duff's before and always wanted to try it. It's a great deal for the price. I sampled a variety of things. I tried the roast beef/prime rib - very good as were the fried chicken - excellent and French onion soup. Also tried veggies - black eyed peas, beets, green beans - all good. Even... More
