“Fun, fun, fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

At Duffy's, they serve the coolest drinks and shots. The music is great and so was the food and service. We ended up with many souvenir glasses, and 4 plastic lizzards for our kid. Cool place.

“A fun restaurant in the middle of a parking lot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Cold beer and decent appetizers make this a fun hangout on a rainy day. You have to get past the fact it sits in a parking lot and remember you are in the Caribbean. The island music aids to the overall atmosphere.

“Interesting, amazing, difficult to describe”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We have been going to the island for a few decades and only in the last few years decided to stop and eat a meal and have a drink. Definitely a good experience. The fish is fresh and the drinks are well ,.....interesting. You can't go wrong. An excellent hint is the little plastic "attitude adjuster" necklace you get when you sit down. Definitely a different attitude to the conventional places. The place turns into a real "night spot" on week-end nights. Keep in mind it is in the middle of a parking lot. Enough said. You will not be disappointed going there one time!!
