“Stay away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

Awful service at the bar both times I visited. This place does not like tourists or their money. Hands down the worst bar I've ever been in.

“We love this joint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Always go to Duffy's when we are in town. Rip, the bartender, is a great guy, good food too.

“Kitchen way too slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

We ate at Duffy's on 05/22/2012 around 6PM. We waited close to 35 minutes for our meal. The place had only 6 tables filled! The only one that seemed to hussle was the bartender. He even came over to a table and took the customer's food order. I think there was only 1 person in the kitchen making food so maybe that is why it took so long. We will still go back because we like the food.

“Good Bar - Bad Food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

This place was just around the corner from where we were staying and looked busy which is always a good sign. My mistake was that though the bar was busy, the dining area was empty except for the four of us. Service was incredibly slow (50 minutes from the time we ordered) and again we were the only diners. The highlight of the meal was the appetizer of the Irish soda bread which was good. When we finally got served, one person's fish was almost raw and the other meals were not hot, but luke warm when served. Some of the stuff seemed like it came directly out of a can. Got them to take the uncooked fish of the tab (whole story in itself). Spoke to a regular who said their sandwiches are great, but never orders dinner there - Oh well, it was really the only bad meal we had in OC that week - so I guess 6 out of 7 isn't too bad. If you are looking for a Guiness and a sandwich - go ahead, but for anything cooked - there are just too many good places to eat in OC to waste your money here
