A Little Like Williamsburg

We picked Duffy's Tavern from reviews on TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. First, we really liked going off the main highway into the quaint town of Boalsburg. And the tavern fit right in to the experience of the town. We happened to get a window seat and it really gave the feel of being in... read more

If you spend the day in Boalsburg- maybe at the Military Museum- I recommend going to Duffy's Tavern. The wings are superb, and they usually compete in the local Wing Fest. The menu has a wide variety of choices. The service is average, but it won't disappoint. The atmosphere itself is historic and gives you a revolution-era feel. It make... More

This historic restaurant has good food, an is quiet enough for having a conversation without shouting. We have been there several times for lunch and liked both the atmosphere and food. It is only a few minutes from campus or downtown.

We always make it a point to stop at one of our favorites when in State College area for PSU football weekends. Duffy's in Boalsburg is consistently excellent. Over the years we have always been pleased. The recent experience with steak specials were excellent and cooked exactly as ordered. Plus is that Shannon is one fantastic server and we will... More

The food was good although a bit pricey and the service was excellent. Waitress was a local and shared much of the history of the area. It was a great dining experience.

Recently dined at Duffy's after not being there for several years. My recollection of the place was correct because it was not a great experience. We sat in the bar area and had burgers and drinks. The bartenders were not very attentive and at one point we had to find them in the restaurant to order another drink. They also... More

This was a great place to sit outside and enjoy a delicious meal. I had the crab cake croissant sandwich with fruit salad. Yum! Great small town charm.

I have dined at Duffy's several times, each has been memorable. When I hear "tavern" I expect a bar with bar food, not so in this stone building in the heart of Boalsburg, a small town worth seeing in itself. Aside from the authentic atmosphere which makes you feel like a quick trip to another century, there is nothing I... More
