“Now enlarged - bigger and better”
Reviewed May 31, 2009

The restaurant filled a void in the Kennebunks- it's the only place where you can get a good basic meal at a reasonable price. This is the place the locals go, and to meet the ever increasing crowds, the new dining room opened last weekend. They are also open for breakfast on the weekends.

Now that the new section is open, it's time for Patty to refresh the menu for summer and lighten things up a bit.

“An Awesome Experience”
Reviewed February 16, 2009

We stumbled into Duffy's by chance and returned the following night because we were thrilled with the food, the atmosphere and the service. It is built in an old shoe factory that has been turned into a wonderful pub, complete with a power generator in the basement to support the electrical needs of the town!

The food was excellent, with large servings and the waitstaff was very attentive in spite of it being very busy on Valentine's Day.

I recommend Duffy's as THE place to go for a great meal and a great time.

“Welcome to Kennebunk!!”
Reviewed December 13, 2008

Duffy's is the best thing to happen in downtown Kennebunk in years. Situated in the Lafayette Building - right on the river on Main St - Duffy has finally made this old shoe factory the place to be in town! There is an large bar to sit at and enjoy the many beer choices and there are also a good number of tables for sit-down dinners as well.
As for the food - I've tried a number of choices since they opened. On the lighter side, the spinach and goat cheese salad is superb. The buffalo wings are scrumptious and very buffalo-y and the buffalo tenders are really crispy crunchy and buffalo-y as well. The burgers are enormous but they also offer a smaller burger if you wish. When opting for burgers or sandwiches, it is difficult to decide between their regular french fries (perfect straight forward fries), the sweet-potato fries (yummy) or the onion rings (highly rated by my friends). The pulled pork can be ordered on a wrap - which is just wrong. But when served on the roll, it is wonderful. They offer hearty home-cooked meals such as meatloaf, turkey dinner, shepherd's pie --- all large servings and the reports have been good.
More than anything, Duffy's is now THE place where you know you can get a great meal for reasonable prices, watch some sports, and have a drink in beautiful downtown Kennebunk. They are open everyday for lunch and dinner and have quickly become the local place to be. My friends and myself are thankful to Duffy for opening up this new place!
