To begin with, I like buffets. I have eaten at this Duff's several times in the past few years when in town for an annual conference. I have found it to be just excellent every time! They have a wide variety of food - just about everything you could want from seafood to pizza. Their fried chicken is particularly good.... More

My family stayed in Dayton for 7 nights. We ate Duff's twice. The dessert buffet is beyond fantastic! The BBQ ribs were excellent as was the fish. I loved the salad bar as it was fresh each time. When we went it was not too busy, but I could tell for sure that the workers were a little more worried... More

First, when you walk in, you feel how this place stink. I'm okay with Buffet,I like to eat salads and fruits, a lot and not paying too much. But it was not my day. You mast know, that you pay first,and your don't have choice to run away,because you already paid. You stay and try food. I went to take... More

We like to eat here about once or twice a month. They have really good fried chicken and a good salad bar. Service is hit and miss, sometimes they do more talking among themselves rather than serving. Desert bar is good, they have a nice selection. There is alot to choose from, you'll know by looking at if you want... More

The food was good and the initial hostess was cordial, but, man, our waitress was like the "soup" man on Seinfeld. Didn't see any southern hospitality oozing from her lips. I loved to eat Duff's when there was one in our area. This one will not get any return business from us. It was probably a better deal for people... More

We eat here at least twice each time we come to Daytona Beach. We would go more often but we are afraid we might not fit on the plane to go home. I like the food, the staff, its all first rate, unlike some buffets.

Children were picking up dishes, putting food on them, and then putting the food back into the serving tray. Children this age should be supervised by a parent. Mgmt. does not seem to care about their diners. We left but our money was not refunded. We drove home and cooked hamburgers. Duff's does not need our business since they did... More

Another review says this place is hit or miss and I think that is the best way to describe it. Some of the food was good, some not so much. Would probably return but wouldnt go out of the way.

While visiting Daytona my husband and I went to Daytona for dinner one night and really enjoyed it. They had a big variety of food which means we both had something we liked! Then for dessert we got the hand scooped ice cream, which was so good! The service was good also. Since it's a buffet they only keep your... More

We went for dinner. We had no difficulty getting in as it was not very busy & lots of tables were open. There is a huge selection of items, large salad bar. As is usually the case with buffets, some items are great, others you just leave on the plate. Was very impressed with the fried chicken & ribs. Also... More
