Great meal!

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

During a 2-day stay in Boalsburg, we ate three meals at Duffy's Tavern. We ate one on the enclosed porch, one on the outdoor patio, and one in one of the dining rooms. We enjoyed all three locations and meals. Both the food and the service were very good. The atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing. I love old and historic... More

This historic Duffy's Boalsburg Tavern was delightful. The quaint furnishings and charming community just added to the experience. The food was wonderful and enjoyed by all of us. The dessert was just heavenly. Don't miss this little gem.

Duffy's is an interesting old building in a nice setting. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a lovely selection of drinks and my "Duffy's Diamond", with gin, lime shrub, and cranberry juice, was delicious. The food was good.

Dined at Duffy's on two occasions over the weekend of July 4th. Service both nights was very good and food was excellent, although a bit pricier that expected for the area. Overall a pleasant dining experience!

The restaurant is in a beautiful, historic building with two environments, one for fine dining (had a fireplace on winter) and a more informal one (outside sitting on summer). They have draft beer, their wings have won local competitions and the outside area is pet friendly. They are on the pricey side, especially for the area, but I shared with... More

Visited Duffy's as a motorcycle destination. Sat outside on the patio with umbrella over the table for shade. Crab cakes were fairly good served with white rice and heirloom carrots. Wife had the grilled chicken cobb salad that was large delicious w/ the ginger soy salad dressing. Would definitely go back just for the salad dressing as it's made in... More

Duffy's is a great historic tavern with lots of quaint dining rooms and a large outdoor patio. It was a perfect night for al fresco dining. Service was very good; food was ok. The strip steak was the best of our three meals - done perfectly for medium rare and tender. The salmon was very dry. I didn't care for... More
