We love Duffy's. There's always entertainment and it's a fun place. We always have the shrimp cocktail and wings. Lots of great times and good staffing!

Always live music and cold beer! A fun place to go in the afternoon or evening. No cover during the day!

Have been several times in the past and it's the only local, decent food in town. If you want a burger/sandwich and brew/cider, then this is your spot/bar while in town!

'Twas fine I suppose. Waiter was fine. The food was fine. The music was nice, the view was nice... all in all, I probably wouldn't go back again... but nothing horrible happened. Give it a chance if u want to kick it with the locals!...More

Perfect funky bar where the locals hang out. Jukebox cranks with good sound system. Pub food but you're there for the crowd, laughter and craft beer. The only pool table is going all the time.
