Duffers is a good place to go for breakfast first thing in the morning or Ice Cream snacks at night. Good friendly service. Good family atmosphere.

The ice cream was simply incredible. There is plenty of it with most professional and friendly service. Nice and clean setting and very busy but the servers take the time to make certain that all of your needs are met in a very satisfactory and personable manner.

To add to the... More

Very nice experience. Friendly waitress, efficient service. Had the fish and chips special and hubby had a burger. Everything was very tasty. We shared the Ultimate Waffle Sundae. OMG! It was gigantic and one of the best sundaes Ive ever had. A+ for Duffers!

Known for its ice cream, but also has good food. The fund arcade attached to Duffers has been the delight of my grandchildren, my children and their spouses forever. Highly recommend you stop by and bring the family. Note: Parking is limited due to the popularity of Duffers.

What a great place for the family. They offer food, ice cream and miniature golf! The food is very good and the prices aren't too bad. The ice cream however is delicious. They give you plenty so don't get too carried away.

Duffers is always part of our Cape May/Wildwood weekend. Good diner food and great ice cream sundaes that are fun to share ! Sometimes the line to get a table can be about 30 minutes but service was quick overall. There is also a game room and mini-gulf on the premises so you can make Duffers and evening destination. Best... More

I used to think the world of this place 20 years ago. They sure still get a crowd, but maybe my standards have climbed. My chief complaint is their ice cream lacks flavor.

I remember as a young kid going to Duffer's and it is just as I remember it. The food was above average. I enjoyed a cheeseburger and the cheese waffle fries, which were both very good. You also can't go to Duffer's without indulging in their enormous ice cream sundaes. Its a great place to bring kids and enjoy a... More
