We’ve been coming to Duffy’s for years. After more than one bad experience in the dining room at dinner, we have vowed to only come for lunch and only if we can be seated in the bar. We always order chowder and clam cakes. It’s...More

Food was o.k. but the restaurant is dirty with many flies on the window near our table. The waitress coughed in our direction while taking our order. The restaurant needs a complete restoration. They seat you near the bar and do not use the dining...More

First of all, let me say my bartender was excellent. Immediately approached me and got me an ice cold beer. That goes a long way with me. Next came the not so good news. Ordered a bacon cheeseburger medium. It came out well done. Uhhh…...More

We are out of towners who come to Newport twice a year. We wanted to try something but we’re leery over the mixed reviews. The Corn, Shrimp, Lobster chowder was excellent. The Stuffies (stuffed clams) were very good as were the fried whole belly clams....More

There aren't so many healthy options, but Duffy's has fantastic food! The seafood is amazing and well-prepared. The service is fast and friendly. We aren't locals, but the clientele appeared to be mainly locals the night we were there and the tavern was pretty full.

I was a huge fan of Duffy's for lunch. Quiet but a relaxed local hangout and a real mellow atmosphere. The last two visits were just a disappointing experience. I love local business, want to support it so much but I would not recommend Duffy's...More

We have had the double lobster special, but never the triple. Wish I could help you. I love Duffy's however.
