Only had drinks here a couple of nights but the bartenders were friendly and the music was good. Fun place to go for an after dinner drink!

Very small. Open-air seating. Close to ferry dock. Fun little place. Kind of in a parking lot. Could get a souvenir cup here.

This place is about having a good sense of humor. You get funny drinks, and can order in a plastic cup or a wacky container, you get a 5c plastic necklace to wear and the food is edible. We had the jerk nachos to start and they were very good, my margarita was great, my ribs were good and the... More

Food was alright but there are better places to eat within 100 yards. It's a unique location - open air bar in a parking lot. Seemed to be better for drinks than dinner. Service was only alright.

There's not a lot to do at night in the East End. Duffy used to be fun - perched in a steep parking lot! But it's gotten seedy and a bit creepy.

Literally, its on their shirts. The food was phenomenal, the atmosphere was wonderful, the drinks are amazing, and the service was great. The lady and I sat at the tables outside of their shanty in the parking lot. Way better than I was expecting.

I had been to Duffy's years ago and thought it was OK. I went last week and I can tell you it has gone drastically downhill. As other reviewers state, it is understaffed, the drinks are small and poorly made and the food is lame. This has definitely turned into a tourist trap and they do not care about getting... More

Going to Duffy's on Ladies Night is not only nice to get free drinks, but also excellent for people watching.

Place is out of the box. A real shack at a parking lot. Same as in every place in St. Thomas. Regulars will get alot more attention than just a solo visitor. Despite, all good. Service good enough. Food good, drinks good! Worth s visit. Coolest carpark bar ive ever seen.

Thank 901ville_
