Our son lives in this area and we have often arrived in town on a Thursday afternoon and ended up at Duffy's for their beer happy hour special. Can't beat $1 beers! This time around we also ended up here on a Sunday night for a meal since the weather did not encourage us to go further afield. The place... More

The first thing I noticed walking in here was a few guys acting very suspiciously. I sat down and waited to be served. But no sooner had a waiter arrived then all hell broke loose. A bunch of guys with AK-47s started shooting the entire place up. I had to dive for cover. I got showered with broken glass when... More

Late flight arrival so dropped in for a late dinner and beverage. Loud due to the exuberance of the Thursday night football crowd, but the charred tomato soup and sliders made up for it. Recommend!

I love this place because i love food, friends, and drinks. The $20 buck special all you can eat all you can drink fridays is too good to pass up. Unfortunately, it's so good, you're liable to pass out!

Swung into Duffy's for a bite to eat and drinks with friends. We had high hopes-the place wasn't too packed and it had great atmosphere. Unfortunately, the food was just average and the drinks were slow to come since the bartender was too busy socializing with his buddy at the end of the bar. Probably won't stop in there again.

We had a great time at Duffy's!! The service was great & the bartenders are all so nice. They have a great brunch buffet on Sundays which includes mimosas & bud light. We really enjoyed this neighborhood bar.

A very welcoming neighborhood bar. I had a couple of fun evenings with Mike the excellent bartender taking care of me. Great service and great prices make this a most convivial place for a drink or three

One of three couples at the bar top and the rest of restaurant was less than half full and we were completely ignored. Maybe the bartender didn't like the fact that we had cubs gear on but it took forever to get anything. And it was noticeable that we were the only ones getting that treatment. Food was decent and...
