Delicious food! Definitely recommend to try when you’re in town. Little long wait time for food but the food was delicious when it arrived. Beer battered fries are a must try.

Myself, an my fiends, stopped in Duffy's after driving the Tunnel of Trees. The specialty drinks were awesome, and the food even better. Our waiter, Ryan, was most attentive. I highly recommend this establishment for lunch or dinner.

Food was good. Fun place. Sit outside so you can see the lake. Staff was not really excited to have to serve us.

The two best things about this restaurant is that they were able to seat us right away on a Saturday evening, and we were able to sit outside on their balcony. There is a pretty good view of the bay and it was a beautiful...More
