We return to Duffer's every year when we return to the Wildwoods. This portions are huge, so order less than you usually would. One fry order for a family of three or one teenaged boy. ;) Kids meals are served on a flying disk. We also split our favorite mini monkey business hot fudge sundae three ways. After, we play...

Did you say Ice Cream? Then you'd better think twice before you dive into one of the many combinations of yummy, and runny sundaes! I have been to many Ice Cream eateries.. But Duffer's ...recently Duffer's Challenge. Is a one of a kind . Everyone's favorite place to go for ICE CREAM!!! And, although you know it's bad...You know that... More

Went here for ice cream. We had the mini sundae's (which btw are about 3/4 the size of the regular but only $.75 less!) for four people and the total was $33. The sundaes were incredible but even the small size 3 of the 4 of us could not finish. I'd suggest splitting a regular sundae or getting just plain... More

All the flavors we tried were great and I'd recommend the waffle cones. The servings are really big so it's easy to share.

Mini golf, arcade & homemade ice cream without the bustle of the boardwalk! Made our last night in wild wood simple. Played a round of golf with the kids had some ice cream which was insanely delish! And an arcade that's just the right size clean and employees were super nice! Great place!!

There isn't much bad you can say about Duffer's. especially when you take the entire complex as a whole. The miniature golf course is loads of fun, the arcade has a decent selection of games and the restaurant and ice cream parlours and phenomenal. Everything about the place is inviting, the staff is friendly and efficient and things are cleaned... More

An all-in-one place to keep the kids happy while you wait. A full on arcade and 18-hole miniature golf course. The food is excellent. there's also an ice cream parlor in the front. But bring long sleeves and pants, as the restaurant is very, very cold.
