When we arrived we were seated right away. There is a lot of choices to choose from. I went back for seconds but to get different food from my first helping.

My boyfriend and I went to Duff's previously with 2 family members and he received a veteran's discount. On a subsequent visit, he presented his VA disability card and the host told him that they only give discounts to active duty members. As if him completing his tour of duty was nothing at all. He had to still be serving... More

Ate early dinner here and the choices of meat were good. The ham, meatloaf, fried chicken and beef were delicious. Lots of choices of desserts and they were very good. They have an early bird until 4;00 PM.

Unlike many other buffet's around town, this one remains my favorite. The food is always freshly prepared, always being refreshed, and you don't freeze your baguettes off while dining. Being a senior all of these are very important. The choice of tables or booths allows for groups to meet and they also have a separate dining room for larger groups.... More

The food was tasty and well prepared. The selection was a bit less than the other chain buffet restaurants, but, was every bit as good than any of them. The place was spotless, and, the service was attentive. The only downside was the price. They are about $5 higher per couple than the big chain places.

Every time we visit Daytona Beach, Florida (which is at once a year), we go to Duff's on Ridgewood in one week we've known to go 3 or 4 times. You will not leave hungry. Employees there are very pleasant.
