Kid and family friendly. Much like a diner, many choices from seafood platters to sandwiches and soup. A model train keeps the attention of the kids and adults. And the ice cream menu cannot be beat.

If you love ice cream, you will love this place. They have the best sundaes and shakes and is a fun place for the kids....mini golf, arcade games.

We luckily visited the final weekend. We visit 3-4 times a summer, being locals. and every visit is consistent. They were extremely busy but somehow without wait we were able to catch a table in the ice cream section. Does anyone understand the crunch coat like Duffer? I think not.

Homemade Ice Cream and killer sundaes are not the only thing they are good at. The food is fabulous also.

We just love their ice cream and milkshakes. My family has made going to Duffer's a summer tradition every year. The kids liked the arcade games when they were younger. Enjoy playing mini golf there as well. Really like that we can walk from the condo we rent every summer.

I really enjoy Duffers... The food is good, the ice cream is awesome and the prices are reasonable.... After dinner the family can enjoy the arcade and play mini golf at a great place for kids to play!

Have been coming here since our kids were young many years ago!. TREMENDOUS hot fudge sundae's with many choices of flavors and toppings. Also great breakfast and lunch items. Always a late night stop after the boardwalk run. It's kind of an old fashioned throw back in design and atmosphere. A Must for the best sundae's in the area !... More
