This is definitely just a run-to place if you have to eat and don't want to go to a drive-thru. Very average atmosphere, nice friendly service, reasonably priced for the amount of food we were given. The food was good - no complaints. I had a nice salad and partner had a burger. The "dining room" looked like a banquet... More

Just came from beers with my husband while on vacation. We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the view of the golf course and live oaks. It's a shame that all I saw was chair railings. I think good , high-top tables would really benefit the place. Also, an update on the place is necessary. I was sticking to... More

On April 1st, I had dinner at Duffers, 2 couples, first of all, I ordered a Manhattan, bar had no cherries, next the server, had no training, didn't have a clue as to what he was doing, felt sorry for him. Two of us ordered a seafood pasta dish, the worst I ever had, very bland sauce, with the smallest... More

This is our first and last time eating here. The health rating was only 95 which may be good in school, but not for a sanitation rating for a place where food is prepared. The entire dinner looked and tasted like an after thought. The prime rib was the worst we have ever tried to cut, chew, and swallow. Our... More

Went for lunch with friends. Have been by it several times but this is my first visit. We sat out on the deck. Great view of the golf course. Service was great and good selection of beers. Our table had the fish sandwich, hamburger and buffalo chicken bites special. We all agreed it was good but would try something different... More

Duffer's has good food especially soups. The food used to be better. We will still go there but not expect exceptional food.

We vacation at Oak Island for a couple weeks each year and have eaten at Duffers occasionally. It's never been outstanding, but last night the Cesare Salad my husband ordered was terrible - yellow lettuce and a very vinegary dressing. He sent it back. I understood that I could exchange a small salad for one of my sides, only to... More

Stu, my golfing partner, and I had lunch at Duffers on Thursday, July 11,2013. Melinda behind the bar was fantastic as delivering our requests in a timely fashion with a sense of humor. Stu had the fried fish sandwich with onion rings. I had the Duffer's cold plate with tuna salad. Both meals were quite tasty. Because of the quality... More

The service could have been better and the food was just ok. We were not even asked if everything was ok. Will not be returning here for the grub, but will play a round again.
