“The Best Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Duffers, hands down, is one of the best family restaurants in The Wildwoods. This place is really something you dedicate an entire evening to, between the arcade, the restaurant, and mini golf.

Long wait times abound to be seated, but the arcade and the forthcoming delicious meals make that wait worth every second. Never have been disappointed with my meal at Duffers, the French Dip beef sandwich is one of the best I've had anywhere.

Then comes the ice cream. Homemade everything. HUGE sundae portions. Best ice cream experience on the island. (Maybe in the nation?)

After dinner, try a round on Duffers detailed and interactive miniature golf course. You can't go wrong with a night at Duffers on your vacation.

“Just like I remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

I often talk about the ice cream place near my childhood home and how much I miss it. Well I found a substitute that manages to improve on my childhood's image of perfection. We all ordered different entrees breakfast, lunch and dinner selections available on the same menu and of course topped off our meals with some of the best ice cream you will ever eat.

Food is excellent. Great family restaurant located right on the

“"Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Very cute, family atmosphere. Fun for the whole family with electric trains circling the room while you enjoy very large delicious portions of your favorite ice cream. The food is also very good and you are given large portions.The staff are friendly and on the ball with service. Had a very nice time with my family even though it is very hard to find parking. The prices are a bit high even though the portions are very generous. Think they could be a little lower priced. Also has a great miniature golf and arcade.
