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.

This place is nice to go for sandwiches or breakfast. The ice cream is okay but if you just want ice cream, go to The Sea Shell on Rio Grande Avenue. There are adorable decorations inside that kids will enjoy. They also have an arcade that has fun games but is on the higher-priced side. A mini golf course is... More

I like this joint because it's clean, the service is always good, and the ice cream sundaes are delicious. It's not really cheap but it's worth the price. The arcade after dinner is good for the kids. And they have mini golf.

If you travel to wildwood for vacation, and don't go to duffers or don't know what Duffer's is, then you've been missing out on the best ice cream you've ever had. I've been coming to wildwood since I was a baby, and every trip we always come to duffers. If you want the true Duffer's experience, you have to go... More
