Duffy's has become our favorite spot for good food, a warm welcome and all the quirkiness that comes with a bar and grill that's been serving locals and service members since 1928. The heavy wood beams are decorated with patches from military units and other...More

I like the locale, and the folks there could not be nicer. Great burgers. However, the trash on the floor when I've been (twice) and the stench of stale beer are definite negatives for me and my guests.

Excellent location for a quick bite. The menu is basically American cuisine with few exceptions. The bar is real good with draft and bottled bear. Open mostly lunch and evenings, i think. Service is good with friendly crew.

What a great find and thanks to Trip Advisor!! If you want a great 'locals and family run' experience this is it - excellent steak (Tuesday is steak night!) and great atmosphere. If you want fine dining - this is not the place - but...More

This place is at the peak of a hill and nestled perfectly with a local military base. The Wait staff ( a wonderful and genuinely lovely older woman) was absolutely splendid. She missed one thing in our order but fixed it immediately with a loving...More

This place is touch and go. Don't get me wrong...I love it. But it is almost a running joke as to why I love it so much. I love the staff...but sometimes I never get service if they are busy. I love watching games here...but...More
