Revisited Duffy's for the first time since last summer and was pleasantly surprised. The menu has changed and the food quality is better. Saw green and red peppers in the chili. Haddock tacos were tasty and had a little kick to them. The salads remain rather plain, but this local pub is still worth a visit. Wondering if there is... More

My first time to Duffy's was quite eye opening, I did not realize this restaurant would be as good as it turned out to be. My family all had great choices from the menu and everything was cooked and delivered exceptionally well.

Come on, this is a tavern... How do you mess up nachos!?!? Stopped by for a quick bite, beer selection is very limited, no local beers? Nachos had a tiny amount of cheese, a mini drizzle of sour cream, and a scoop of three different toppings. Chips glistening in salt - it looked like it had snowed in them -... More

Not sure what else you'd expect. If you parked in the back parking lot, be sure to leave a breadcrumb trail to find your way back to the car. I've never had to walk through so many office spaces (hair salon, barbershop, financial advisor, etc) just to get to the tavern. It was 3pm and it was empty. I mean... More

Duffy's is on Main Street and we were lucky to be able to park nearby since it is a bit chilly during winter. We were seated promptly and the atmosphere was nice. The bar is very large. My son ordered the pot pie and was disappointed because it did not have the look of what he expected. It was deconstructed... More

Good sweet potato fries! And the burgers are awesome too. Very popular with us locals (except in tourist time, when it can get crowded) and they also offer tasty specials, many times surprising with how good they are. Local food sourced, friendly horse-shoe bar. Sometimes gets a tad noisy but never overwhelming.

Great place for lunch and breakfast. A great menu with terrific food and moderate pricing in just the right location "on the river"

We visit Duffy's almost weekly. Enough that our usual Sunday lunch server, Shelby misses us when we skip a day. She is GREAT! The menu is your typical pub fare, with delicious perfectly cooked wings, salads, burgers, and some heartier favorites like shepherd's pie. My go to favorite is the French Dip, with tender roast beef on crusty french bread.... More

Duffy's is situated in downtown Kennebunk right next to the river and the dam. The building is obviously an old mill factory. The place has brick and high ceilings with a warm decor. The bar is huge and serves popcorn (they won me over with this). We ate lunch at the bar. They have a nice selection of beers on... More
