Duffers offers a great selection of food that is reasonably priced. The tuna sandwich special is a favorite. Good place for families who want to eat out but don't want to pay a high price.

Duffers was the first place I ate when moving to Shallotte. The food has always been great. The service hasn't, but recently it has been much improved. Best cheesesteaks for miles (especially in the south), Mickey's Mound (burger) is also good. The shrimp is plump and perfectly prepared. A must for anyone in the area. Lots of choices for every...

Saturday visit, we arrived minutes before 6 PM and were pleased we didn't have to wait for a table. Shortly thereafter there was a line at the door so our timing was very good! Service was a bit slow, but our waitress's friendly personality helped ease the wait quite a bit. While our Yuenglings were delivered in a reasonable time... More

Had supper with the family on vacation. Food was great! Had the roast beef and gravy sandwich, which was awesome, along with the house made chips. The only problem we had was my kids ordered fries and were brought chips. Had to ask twice to get fries brought out and it took until me and my wife were almost finished.... More

I've passed this place several times but have never stopped. I decided to try it today and I will be back. I got the chicken quesadilla and it was amazing. Take a second to check it out if you're in the area.

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.
