One of our favorite Restaurants. Great Views of the Atlantic Ocean. Food is really good along with the service. Best Club Sandwich anywhere we've ever been. Only negative thing is that they need to close for a small extent of time and remodel. Place is in need of work.

We eat here sometimes after playing golf. So, usually lunch. Limited lunch menu but good. Service is OK. People are friendly. Good sandwiches.

A party of 50 held a monthly event at Duffers. They provided great buffet meal (especially for the group) with superb roast beef and very lightly battered flounder -- both were excellent. Service was attentive and always available and smiling.

We came here a couple of years ago and did not like any thing about it, but came with a couple who thought it was great and glad we did. The food and service were much better this time and we would return again to sit in the bar with a great view of the ocean.

I have been coming to Southport to visit friends for over a decade and usually we all would go down to Duffers on Tuesday nights for drinks, appetizers and participate in karaoke. I especially enjoyed going out on the deck where DJ Rodney would host the event. The place always seemed to have a large friendly crowd that participated in... More

I've been there several times and although the food is always delicious the servers are mostly oblivious. A ketchup bottle was brought in from outside and because of the temperature change when I used it the ketchup burst open and sprayed me head to toe. I didn't really mind, it happens, but the servers sat laughing in the corner. While... More

We visited Duffers on last family gathering on the beach. My cousin requested a window view, but the hostess said no because they had already set our table up (against a wall). Two tables could have been put together by a window (no reservation signs on them). Our waiter, Chris, was efficient. We had to wait quite a while for... More
