Went for an early dinner with family and ordered Jumbo Shrimp and Filet Mignon apps plus Philly Steak. Everything was tasty and well done. Good selection of happy hour (4-6) food (fries, nachos, wings, tenders, etc.) at great prices ($3-7). Portions are generous. Wait staff members are polite and attentive. Decor and ambience are inviting - lively crowd at the... More

This is the first time I've felt let down by TripAdvisor ratings. After reading the menu online I expected a very good lunch, but it didn't work out that way. Let's start with the lobster bisque. As soon as I saw the color I was worried. It was white. Lobster bisque should be pink. Yes, there were some tiny pieces... More

We were looking to try a new place and I've heard great things from my friends. We were not disappointed. As we walked in, it was busy but was greeted very warmly and seated quickly. Our waitress was very friendly and our drinks were there before you could bat an eye. Looking around, the atmosphere was very cool. So far... More

Duffy's employees treat everyone as if they were an old friend. The food is fresh and a mix of old favorites and the latest trends. Bar staff is attentive and able to recommend or even create a drink for you.

I have been to Duffy's Tavern many times and each time has been great. Their menu has many high quality choices and everything tastes great and is cooked well. The staff is usually very attentive however the last time I visited, on 6/19/16, I barely saw our waiter. He took our initial order and then I had to flag him... More

Have been here twice and have enjoyed each meal. The Crispin Hard Apple Cider is smooth and refreshing. The potato skins were tasty and I thoroughly enjoyed my burger. Our waitress Kelly was helpful and attentive making sure to keep our drinks full and was nice enough to bring more bread once she saw how quickly it disappeared!
