I love this place because i love food, friends, and drinks. The $20 buck special all you can eat all you can drink fridays is too good to pass up. Unfortunately, it's so good, you're liable to pass out!

Swung into Duffy's for a bite to eat and drinks with friends. We had high hopes-the place wasn't too packed and it had great atmosphere. Unfortunately, the food was just average and the drinks were slow to come since the bartender was too busy socializing with his buddy at the end of the bar. Probably won't stop in there again.

We had a great time at Duffy's!! The service was great & the bartenders are all so nice. They have a great brunch buffet on Sundays which includes mimosas & bud light. We really enjoyed this neighborhood bar.

A very welcoming neighborhood bar. I had a couple of fun evenings with Mike the excellent bartender taking care of me. Great service and great prices make this a most convivial place for a drink or three

One of three couples at the bar top and the rest of restaurant was less than half full and we were completely ignored. Maybe the bartender didn't like the fact that we had cubs gear on but it took forever to get anything. And it was noticeable that we were the only ones getting that treatment. Food was decent and...

Very close to the marina but it might be worth a few extra minutes to explore other options. The food was average at best so with a city full of other great options...why?

Visited Duffy's in Chicago. We found the place to be very friendly and welcoming. There is not a huge beer selection but there were enough that we both found something we liked. Relaxing afternoon after a hectic day.
