Friendly with a view

We stopped by for a drink after dinner. What a view! The ocean on one side and the golf course on the other. We didn't eat so I can only comment on the atmosphere but that was enough for me to want to come back.

The pub side is very comfortable (we did not eat in the restaurant side with linen tablecloths). We had the loaded nachos and cheeseburgers and they were great. Our server was very nice as was the other people working in there. You also have some nice views from the windows. Even though it's connected to the Oak Island Golf Club... More

I love the lunch selection at Duffers! If you go make sure to get Cammy as your waitress! She's the nicest/best server ever! The French dip is so good! I cannot wait to go back!

Love the food at Duffers. They are a pub with pub food and a restaurant with fine dining. Had prime rib and had burger and fries. Not the cheapest place on the island but not overpriced either. Great view of ocean with a classy atmosphere.

The food was delicious. Grouper crabmeat cocktail, seared scallop app, filet and salmon entrees were outstanding. The service was attentive. DJ Rodney made the evening fun! The restaurant has been renovated, the floors are no longer carpeted and the dining room had less of a banquet hall feel.

First of all, this is a restaurant not a bar. It is part of the golf course but since its part of the members club, the food and service are top notch. The restaurant has two sections, one in the bar area for TVs and beers with the formal dining room set for events and quiet dinners. The place has... More

This is a good place to unwind after a day on the beach or on the golf course. From the pub you have a good view of the Atlantic. Friendly atosphere and selection of beer. Great sandwiches and the homemade chips are delicious.

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
