We have been going to Duffy's for over 10 years. The business appears to run in cycles of very good to very bad, Duffy's is in a bad cycle again judging by our last two times there. Our visit in November two ceiling tiles fell and struck our table during dinner (old building), a employee gathered up the debris and never said anything to us. Our last visit we could not get waited on for over twenty minutes, moved to a table a bartender was clearing, She said she would back to wipe the table off and never returned; after another 5-7 minutes we walked out. Duffy's has the best wings and burgers in Valpo when their in a good cycle.

Stopped by for a beer and some snacks. We were visiting from out of state and were surprised that the whole place is smoking friendly. We had dry rub wings and a few beers, good local crowd who knew each other well. Having said that, the service was good and friendly.

We were looking for somewhere to grab a beer and a bite to eat. A friend suggested Duffys a Valpo staple I'm told. Upon entering the place is a little dark and dingy. Beers were cold and the staff was friendly. Menu looked appetizing. I used the restroom and it was disgusting. The smell was overwhelming and urine was all over the floor. I lost my appetite after that . If they can't simply keep a rest room clean I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like. No thank you!

We went there just before 5pm and the waitresses were changing shifts. Took took awhile to get our order in and we were in a hurry. Food was just ok. We sat outside and the chairs were the most uncomfortable chairs! Food was hot. Pierogi's were fried in the deep fryer. Wasn't impressed!

It had been awhile since I had been to Duffy's and the food used to be really good. We ordered 6 pierogi (2 of 3 different kinds). All 6 were not what we ordered. We had a terrible time getting a server to come back to the table to order additional food, ask to have the appetizer ordered corrected or get more beers. Won't be back.
