Wanted to go to Duffer's for lunch this past weekend, only to find that the building had been demolished. Not sure what is going to replace it, if anything.

The best prime rib in the area (for dinner) and great sandwiches at lunch. Unfortunately, the building has been torn down, but they expect to rebuild. Hope they are back in business soon.

First of all, don't mistake this restaurant for the Duffers in Shalotte, NC. Although both have excellent food but the atmosphere and styles are totally different. Duffers Pub is the Oak Island Golf Courses Watering Hole and it's excellent all around. Typical 19th Hole fare....More

Located on the Golf Course this restaurant offers great food at reasonable prices. The only down fall is the decor. I would have given it 5 stars, however, the place needs total renovation. The ceiling tiles are stained needs new flooring and tables and chairs....More

Casual dress. Jacket & tie is not required. Men wear golf shirts, slacks, shorts. Jeans seem to be okay too. It seems to be an eclectic mix of attire one would wear going out to dinner...
