My first visit to Duffer's was positive. I wasn't sure what to expect of a "bar in a strip mall" but, boy, was I pleasantly surprised. The storefront looks a bit nondescript from the road but inside is clean and well appointed. They have a great selection of salads, sandwiches and entrees and choices matter! My burger was prepared perfectly... More

I don't usually have a salad for dinner. However, the Grilled Chicken Taco salad was tasty and filling. One of our party had the Crab Cake salad and said it was very good as well. Service was fast, the wait staff polite and anticipated the need to refill drinks. The dining area was clean, the seating comfortable. For a casual... More

A great stop after a movie. Duffers has good sandwiches pub style. The ribs are delicious and fall off the bone. A great local hangout with a friendly atmosphere. Attentive happy staff.

I don't know where to start or to say which of their sandwiches I like the best. The Hamburgers are great, the French Dip is great as are the Brisket, Corned Beef, Pastrami, Soft Shell Crab etc. etc. etc. Anything you order is done right and comes to the table hot, unless you order a cold sandwich. Service is great... More

Went for lunch. Grouper bites appetizer was outstanding. Wife got the Reuben, I got the Cuban sandwich. Both were great - tender meat, done to perfection. Service was friendly and attentive. Definitely will return.

We had heard Duffers was really good so we finally stopped for lunch. The menu was extensive. My Reuben was fine, but my wife's club sandwich had bread which was not hardly toasted. She asked for it to be more toasted and it not only took forever, but it came out half toasted. It is pretty hard to screw up... More

Service was good, I ordered a open face beef sandwich, which was good. Ordered potato salad as a side, potato salad was not that good. If I go back I will try another side.

Tried Duffer's for the first time last Saturday and realized we have been missing out. Everyone at the table had sandwiches which were all good. My wife had the cheese steak which was my favorite. One thing to be careful off is the sub sandwiches come in two sizes 8 and 11 inches. I made the mistake of getting the... More
