We were looking to try a new place and I've heard great things from my friends. We were not disappointed. As we walked in, it was busy but was greeted very warmly and seated quickly. Our waitress was very friendly and our drinks were there before you could bat an eye. Looking around, the atmosphere was very cool. So far... More

Duffy's employees treat everyone as if they were an old friend. The food is fresh and a mix of old favorites and the latest trends. Bar staff is attentive and able to recommend or even create a drink for you.

The staff is usually very attentive however the last time I visited, on 6/19/16, I barely saw our waiter. He took our initial order and then I had to flag him... More

Have been here twice and have enjoyed each meal. The Crispin Hard Apple Cider is smooth and refreshing. The potato skins were tasty and I thoroughly enjoyed my burger. Our waitress Kelly was helpful and attentive making sure to keep our drinks full and was nice enough to bring more bread once she saw how quickly it disappeared!

While there was a very limited St. Patrick's Day menu everything we had was great. Very crowded/busy but we were seated within 15 minutes. The corned beef on rye was tender, lean and not salty and the beer was ice cold.....Perfect!
