While Duffy's is an island institution the menu was more varied and interesting at bananas and you must have the hot bananas.

“Worn Out and Tired”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Something about this place has had it. The upper deck was hopping when I went a few years ago but it just looks like people aren't showing up. For good reason. The few wines available are poor. The food is unexciting but edible. The service is more geared to running back and forth than making sure you get what you need. Hope they can rebound.

“Worst place we tried in Vieques”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Don't mistake their kitschy t-shirts and convenient location for good eats. I had the jerk chicken (server recommendation) and literally choked it was so dry. It was pretty obvious the chef tried to mask the extremely overcooked chicken by drowning it in some sauce but nonetheless - FAIL.

My wife had spiced shrimp cocktail - similar cooking strategy apparently .... an apparent culinary triage after a highly overcooked mistake doused in sauce.

I ordered a pricey mojito that came in a small plastic cup in which sugar-in-the-raw replaced simple syrup .... the result being all the chunky sugar crystals sank to the bottom leaving a very poorly mixed drink.

The icing on the cake was the stranger's hair in my water that I didn't find until I was half way done with it lol.

“Great for Appetizers and Drinks...”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Nice appetizer menu. Calamari are of the charts. Great place to relax after a long beach day. Quick and friendly service.

“not great”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

food was average- service was ok. There was a mouse in the very dirty ladies room, pretty gross. Best thing we had was the cheese bread appetizer.
