First, I have to say, my son loves the ceiling train that goes round and round while you eat. The food is good, and the portions are generous. It's really a cozy atmosphere, with great food, awesome ice cream, and reasonably priced. It also has an arcade and mini golf to burn off some calories after your meal.

The food was good but there were a lot of flies bothering us while we were trying to eat. We had a large group of adults and kids.

We have gone to Duffer's for years ~ mainly for the ice cream, but also to have a meal too! The food is good, the atmosphere is cute, and there's lots for kids to do while waiting to eat or play afterwards. There's mini golf and an arcade attached to the place!

Best ice cream in Wildwood hands down. Coming to this place for 40 years! The same family has run this place the whole time and their presence is felt each time we return. It has the same quality all these years. I can only speak for their ice cream but it is busy for dinners as well

Duffer's is more than just a restaurant- there's also an ice cream parlor, gift shop, arcade and mini golf. We opted for ice cream one night- it's good but not the best in town and the sundae, while large, seemed a little overpriced at $8. The next morning we enjoyed a nice breakfast- food and service were good as always.... More

Duffer's is always a go-to when we're in Wildwood- good food, fun kid activities, decent price. The mini-golf is the best!

Ice cream is amazing. I like Oreo and the vanilla peanut butter. Large portions too. Even the child size is plenty. Very long lines though depending on time of day or year.
