I live in the area and work at a nearby hotel. My co-workers and I frequent Duffy's quite often and usually the food and service are pretty good. However, last night was a serious exception. Two of us went there and asked for a table at the bar, and we were seated immediately by a very friendly hostess. But then we got our server - Michael. An older genetlemen with a terrible attitude. He told us we shouldn't be sitting at this table because it had 4 chairs and there were only 2 of us. We informed him that 2 people might be joining us if they get off work early enough. He said he needed to know NOW if they were coming because if they weren't he was separating our one table into two because the Miami Heat game was on and it was going to get crowded. There was plenty of other seating - why did the hostess sit us there if it was such a big deal? I told him that if our 2 other friends didn't show up by the time he needed the seats back he could take them. He grunted and walked away. He didn't tell us about any specials, wouldn't recommend a wine for my friend (he told her to look on the back of the menu), corrected us on the difference between "naked" wings and "dry" wings. and overall was just plain rude. He was obviously annoyed with us and wasn't interested in waiting on us at all. Until , that is, our other 2 people showed up. Then all of a sudden he found his personality but by then it was way too late. We ended up spending around $85 in food and drinks and he could have cared less - we waited almost 30 minutes for him to take our bill. I'm not sure if this was just a one-off for this place or if the entire staff now has this attitude (when my friend mentioned our disappointment on our way out to the Manager - he just shrugged his shoulders and said "Sorry".) I probably won't be coming back here for a while, I won't be sending any hotel guests that way and I for sure won't be entertaining any clients here. Too bad.
