There were 7 of us on July 14th at Duffy's. We were eating outside since it was a nice evening. There was one other table being served. It took almost 30 minutes to get appetizers. We kept asking the waitress WHY were our meals taking so long? She said that the kitchen must be backed up. We checked. The inside... More

We went here because they had no wait. The soda bread was great! The crab cakes good too! French onion soup fair. Good boxtys

Average food. Certainly nothing burnish about this except the beers on tap Food was passable but nothing special. Service was inexorably slow and I think worse outside vs inside If you can bear the wait head to the Mexican next door

This restaurant was advertised in a paper we were reading at the beach. My sister was hungry for steak and lobster so she wanted to try this place. The service was so-so although to be honest there was only one waitperson in the whole restaurant. The bartender helped him out when she could but at times she was pretty busy.... More

I am surprised by the poor reviews. We eat here often. The food is consistently good, as is the service. The French dip is the best I have ever had. I look forward to it when I am away.

Been coming here since 1983--mainly for the signature corned beef and cabbage. This was our first time back in several years but found it grungier, poor service and s0-so food. Corned beef was dry and essentially tasteless. Off our list for good.

Duffy's has been around forever so it is a locals hangout albeit an older crowd. When Miss Beverly or Steve are cooking the food is decent. My big disappointment is their Reuben Sandwhich. It used to be great but for the past couple of years the corned beef is terribly fatty and tough! However their steamed Shrimp, I think, is... More

Its a neighborhood bar without all the tourist trap gimmicks. Lots of TVs and some arcade games. Its a little on the dark side with the lighting and I'm sure it was a smokey place when smoking was legal. The food is always good and the chicken wings are plump and juicy. I've always sat at the bar and have... More

We always have great service here. It's true on holidays particularly if you love going on St. Patty's day like we do you could wind up waiting a bit but the fellow patrons are always there for a friendly chat, reminiscent of Dublin pub etiquette. I am always surprised when I come out paying less than 40 for food that... More

Duffy's is your classic locals bar / restaurant. It is open year round and, while the bar area is the center point for the venue, there is a relatively separate dining area so you can bring the kids. The really good thing about Duffy's is that it is reasonably priced for good food. In the off season, they offer a... More
