Love their burgers! Especially the burger loaded with fried onions, cheese, and topped with a sunny side up. The yummy egg drips through the whole burger package when you cut into it. This is not everyone's cup of 'tea', but for those who love eggs and burgers, it's happiness in your mouth! The ambiance is rustic, with all sorts of... More

Love this place and love that the menu changes seasonally. By the time I have tried all the new items, it will change and offer a different taste. They have plenty of events that are excellent. Definitely a place I like to frequent.

Have eaten here before and was always impressed, but this time we placed our order and waited and waited and waited. Finally 50 minutes later, we get our salads and was told they were backed up making salads! Really, backed up making salads? It will be quite a while before we have the desire to return based on this visit.

Old stone restaurant on a tiny street in Boalsburg. Enjoyed our meal. I had a Cobb Salad that was fine. I would have rated it higher except there was a preponderance of white, ice burg lettuce vs greens. My husband and I each had a cup of ham and bean soup that was delicious. He also chose and enjoyed a... More

This historic restaurant keeps up with the times in its menus without losing its historic specialties. Many of the soups and sandwiches have been on the menu more than forty years, but there are always new items. I had a grilled chicken Cobb salad, which was huge, well made and very filling.

Duffy's Tavern provided us a delicious lunch and a feel for a bygone era. Before or after your meal, be sure to check out the local shops, especially if you enjou wine and/or chocolate.

Traveling with friends, we hoped and planned for a nice dinner out at a local restaurant. Duffy's website (and reviews) were impressive; a nice cocktail menu, white tablecloths, varied menu, rustic setting... Sorry - raw tables, poor service from the moment we walked in, overall disappointment. Lowlights from the evening: - had to fetch waitstaff to get attention for menus... More

We were here during the People's Choice Festival and yes it was very busy. There were a crowd of people waiting to be seated and no one to be found to seat them. So, we opted to go to the bar area where there two seats available. The bartender looked a bit overwhelmed, but he kept his cool and served... More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the People's Choice festival. It took us forever to get seated. Once seated, we waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table to acknowledge our presence. We finally walked out and went to Kelly's, where we had a wonderful lunch!
