“Great atmosphere, so so food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

You really just have to go to see what it's all about. A bar in a parking lot sounds weird, but somehow they make it work. The food was ok, but the staff and the atmosphere are what you're really there for.

“One of a kind”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

The first time I ate in a parking lot. The waiter suggested the coconut and lime drink because he had five left. So we ordered two drinks. After we got the two drinks he went to another table and suggested the same lime and coconut because they only have five left. LOL Make sure you use the bathroom before you go. They only have one and very nasty.

“Awesome Bar with great crowd and drink specials!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

My girlfriend and I had a blast at Duffys Love shack. Drink prices were great and seemed to get better as it got later in the night. The crowd was a mix of locals and visitors, but everyone was enjoying themselves. Lots of dancing and good music! If you are passing through Red Hook you have to check out Duffys!

“Good food, loud music, and FUN!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Duffy's is such a cool little joint. It's kind of an odd space, it's really a shack in a parking lot with seating that expands into the adjacent parking spots as they clear out. But the music is good and the vibe is infectious and it all just feels right. The drinks were delicious and came in fun souvenir cups. If you're lucky then someone will order a Shark Tank while you're there and the shark on the wall will come alive and the requisite jaws music will play.

We went as a family with 3 children from 2 - 18 and we were not the only family there which may seem surprising for a place that's really about drinking. But the food is really good too. My daughters pronounced the burgers "the best on the island" and my husband and I enjoyed our dinners thoroughly too. I'd rate the value as Very Good but please realize that's relative to the rest of St Thomas - nothing is really reasonably priced there.

“As laid back as they come”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Like the man said... Best parking lot bar in the world. The food is average to good. The service could be better but isn't bad.

Bottom line is this is a fun place!
