We had Ashley as our server and she was great. The food was very good. I don't usually order dessert and I don't especially ,like bread pudding, but my friend ordered it. It was enough for 4 people and it was delicious.

Michael our server was fun, attentive and right on with his suggestion. Lobster Benny was a treat. My bride ordered her bacon burnt because it never comes crisp enough for her, it came out perfect. Great! Can't say more.

I'm vegetarian, so I was pleasantly surprised by the number of dishes that Duval's offered that were meatless, although they have great seafood and meat choices available. Often, restaurants have just one or two vegetarian dishes, but Duval's had several. For this lunch, I chose...More
