“Really good seafood.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

A restaurant right on Highway 1 in Key West is a great place to get your Florida lobster. The Yellowtail is excellent also. There are many places in Key West on the water with better ambience but you won't find better seafood. Service is excellent and prices are reasonable (for Key West).

“Went to dinner there twice in one week.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Duffy's was the only place that we went to twice during the week we were in KW. My hubby had the prime rib both times and loved it. I had the NY strip and shrimp scampi and they were both very good. The NY strip was cooked perfectly and the gulf shrimp were fresh and huge. You get delicious warm bread and butter and your choice of salad or soup and a side dish. We thought the portions and prices were good based on KW standards. The service was better the first night than the second night only because we had a different waitress the second night. We did not have to wait long to be seated even though we wanted a booth. Also the place was spotless. We will definitely return.

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

After reading the other reviews, I was wondering how we would like it, but the four of us thought that the food was simple, good and tasty. If you are looking for a is a reasonably nice, low key, restaurant with a traditional menu and not a frenzed and dreadfully trendy and chic restaurant, you will be happy here. We all chose the rib roast (smallest size) and thought it was tasty and more than adequate portions, especially since it comes with salad and sides. The prices were good and we thought it was a good value. Our experience with the service was fine - accurate, polite and appropriately friendly.

“Absolutely awful!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Bad service, poor quality food. However, that is what one can expect from this business owner. He isn't invested in things like cleanliness and quality. He owns Abondanza and the Commodore Steak House.

“Okay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Close to our hotel so we decided to try it instead of driving around. Servers took there time seating us and our waitress took a while to wait on us. Restaurant was not busy at all. Waitress was too busy visiting with our waitresses and did not give us a lot of attention. Food was okay. We thought that ordering seafood on Key West would be fresh and great. Not So sure.....Did not go here for our second night, found a place with FRESH seafood that was great and had terrific service. I used to be a waitress and good service to me means a great tip.....
