I grew up in Petoskey and have always been a bit jaded towards new businesses downtown. But I met with a dear friend while I was home over the New Year and we chose Duffy's. The atmosphere is really impressive, staff was friendly/attentive, but knew...More

We recently had lunch here and it was TERRIBLE. The food was so bad, you could tell ZERO effort was put into any single order, salads were a joke. There was nobody at the restaurant and we could barely find our waitress to order and...More

This is a neat place to eat given it's "car theme". The food is decent "bar food" and it is a pretty laid back place to eat. My only complaint as the service was just average. (Especially given the fact the place was not busy)

We drove from where we were staying (Boyne Mountain) into Petoskey for dinner at Duffy’s. It was worth the 20 minute trip! We have two boys ages 14 and 12. They found the decor fun to look at while we were waiting for our meal....More

Delicious food! Definitely recommend to try when you’re in town. Little long wait time for food but the food was delicious when it arrived. Beer battered fries are a must try.

Myself, an my fiends, stopped in Duffy's after driving the Tunnel of Trees. The specialty drinks were awesome, and the food even better. Our waiter, Ryan, was most attentive. I highly recommend this establishment for lunch or dinner.

From out of town so first time here. Went in the evening so not overly busy. It is very loud. It must be the acoustics or something. If people talk loud it is like you are in a pole barn. Just sound bouncing off the...More
