My boyfriend and I wanted to grab quick lunch, and we were initially drawn to the atmosphere and view that Duffy's offered. That's about all it has going for it! Everything my boyfriend ordered they were "out of" - wings, drinks, tuna mac & cheese...More

The food was ok, nothing exciting. We ate outside and there was a view of the lake. Music started before we left. A build up for a not so great musician who seemed to have a local following.

Duffy's has everything. Got to see the great John Eisenhart 4 times when we up there. Good food, reasonable drink prices a great view, an electric atmosphere. If you're an outgoing person you're going to meet a lot of new friends. Very friendly crowd since...More

Basic bar food and drinks in plastic cups. Nice view of the water from the top outdoor deck area. The food we had was just a few apps of basic fare.
