Ordered the bone in rib eye but they were out, asked for dry aged steak, but they had none that was ready. Was offered a rib steak which was smaller than the bone in rib eye for the same price. Steak was prepared well but didn't taste as good. Very a third of the steak was fat and couldn't be... More

The atmosphere was nice and Vince our server was really helpful in making our decisions. He was super friendly with a great sense of humor. We had the... More

Had gone to Ryan Duffy's about 8 years prior and it was great! So when I saw a Groupon for it, I went HOORAY! My daughter and I each bought one to get a nice steak or equivalent together and go with our husbands. The service was excellent! Waiters were just lovely and we were psyched for a great meal!...

I purchased a Groupon certificate for Ryan Duffy's in Halifax and tonight I decided to use it. I made a reservation and told them I had a Groupon certificate and they said no problem. We were pleasantly greeted and shown to our table. Great, so far. The waiter explained the limitations of the certificate. It included an appetizer up to... More

This was our second to last night in Halifax and me being Scottish, I had scoured Groupon for deals available in the Halifax area for dining. There was an offer for a meal at Duffy's with a shared appetizer, two entrees and a shared dessert for only $59 so I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity. They prize themselves... More

for the price of their steak all I tasted was the charred outside - tasted like charcoal - for $45 I expected a lot better . $7 for carrots as a side is ridiculous - they had something on them but they only tasted like regular boiled carrots. However the appetizer and desserts were good. Service was fine as well.

As I read a plethora of bad reviews about the Ryan Duffy's - bad food quality, bad service, etc. - I started to second guess my decision to go there, yet my wife and I had already committed to it for the night, so I was ready to suck it up and deal with the consequences of a bad decision.... More
