Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 July 2017

When my husband attended Valpo many moons ago, this place was called Jackson's. We stopped into Duffy's for nostalgic purposes and a quick drink, and he wasn't disappointed! The bar staff was friendly and helpful. Alex recommended a few restaurants to us, and we ended up at one of the places he suggested. Duffy's also had a full menu with mostly bar food, and we heard that the wings were good. Unfortunately it is a smoking bar, and I have asthma, so we took our drinks outside on their expansive patio which overlooked a busy highway. It began raining while we were there, but much of the patio is protected, so you can still enjoy it during the warmer months. The atmosphere was friendly and since it was summer, there was a great mix of a crowd and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

They have good food, wings and soup real good. The place is a smoking place so be prepared. They have Valpo U Jazz on Tuesday night while schools going, great music. It's small inside, but they have a deck so you can get out of the smoke and into the clean air. Friday and Saturday nights the band plays and its packed .

Located on the hill in Valpo...lots of space and lots of outdoor space. Plenty of tvs to watch games on. A bit dirty in the bathrooms

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.
