Visited on a Saturday about 2 pm and found it to be enjoyable and different. Large place with plenty of banquet rooms and dining areas. On our visit, there were very few diners and maybe 15 regulars at the bar area. Small screens with sports on if you ask for the game, race etc. No problem. Nice location with plenty... More

We went for a late lunch and were a party of 6 adults and 3 well-behaved 12-year old children. When we entered, they quickly shuffled us to the back of the restaurant, which they said would fill up soon with the dinner crowd. I have never been very impressed with their extremely ordinary, plain food. Their clam cakes were very... More

Nice atmosphere and easy feel. Cold drafts were best price I've seen. Food was great. I had the Portuguese Stew lunch portion and hot wings. Stew was great and the wings were abundant for the money. My wife enjoyed her fish sandwich which featured a large slab of cod. Plan to come again!

My 90 years old mom and I ate there last night. The waitress was an old friend of ours from prior visits and was great to us. We love seeing her. The food was excellent as always. I didn't take our waitress' suggestion of ordering the steam muscles. Later in the meal I admitted my mistake and she gave me... More

We took out of town guests to Duffy's due to the great price of the lobster dinner. Service was painful as the waitress seemed confused. It may have been her first night but she did not have a "Trainee" badge on. Real slow and the place was not exceptionally busy. The meals were served hot and the boiled lobsters were... More

Having moved to FL 12 years ago, I always look forward to a trip to Duffy's! Consistently good RI grub since I can remember. Local seafood, local crowd and great service!

Food was hot, tasty and perfect for a very late lunch --and served up quick to hungry travelers (great when you are trying to meet a schedule). You'll find pub food, seafood, and salads on the menu. The corn chowder was oh-so-good. The bar is a prominent feature of this establishment; it's clearly a well-loved local watering hole. It wasn't... More

WORST DINING EXPERINCE OF MY LIFE!!! (Avid travelers) disgusting glasses, not enough menus for 10 people in an empty restaurant, 2 out of 10 people in our party did not even get served food (explanation was they just didn't make it), no apology, manager Robin came in drunk while smoking and drinking on the patio and yelling at us.

We were disappointed because they had run out of the larger lobsters, but 2 smaller did the job. We have an order of Calamari to start and it was enough for the 6 of us, and light and crispy. The fish and chips were excellent, as well as, the RI Clear Chowder and Clam Cakes,
