Not a huge menu but everything we have tried has been very good. Wonderful waitstaff. The view of ocean and grounds is stunning. We keep going back!

This has always been a great place but not today. The menu has changed to Southwest Cuisine and is very disappointing. Gone is the Cobb Salad and Chef Salad replaced by the too spicy to eat Southwest Salad and is not great tasting. I believe this is their "New Coke / Classic Coke" moment. Go back to the old reliable... More

Had another fine catered meal at Duffers! Salad was fresh and crisp. Fish was delectable and and nicely done without looking like a mess of fish thrown in a serving carafe. Prime rib was pre-cut; it was tasty and tender enough to cut with a fork! Service was attentive and not overbearing..

To be fair ... we were seated in the annex to the dining room. Seriously. There was no ambiance ... large florescent light fixtures vintage 1960's overhead ... bingo type long tables ... every thing painted gray(?) and loose ceiling tiles. A mess. I ordered a wrap ... I ate it, paid for it and will never return.

Duffer's did another outstanding job of catering a dinner-business for the Southport Sail and Power Squadron. The buffet consisted of salad, hard rolls, smashed potatoes, steamed vegetable medley,salmon,and prime beef. The service was excellent as was the food. The price was very reasonable for this event.

One of our favorite Restaurants. Great Views of the Atlantic Ocean. Food is really good along with the service. Best Club Sandwich anywhere we've ever been. Only negative thing is that they need to close for a small extent of time and remodel. Place is in need of work.

Duffers restaurant is located on the second floor of the Oak Island golf course; the view from the second floor is an awesome view of the Atlantic Ocean from the south side of the restaurant and a beautiful view from the northside deck. The lunch menu is pretty basic but is augmented by daily specials. The food is well prepared... More
