I have eaten lunch at Duffer's several times and have always been very satisfied with my meal. I especially enjoyed the Reuben sandwich.

My husband and I usually dine periodically at Duffers with another couple from the Island and have consistently found their food, service, and atmosphere to be excellent. There was a period of time in the distant past when the restaurant went into a slump but it is now operating with 5 stars for sure. We have dined and had opening... More

The restaurant overlooks the ocean with a beautiful, relaxing view. They have normal casual fare, with some unusual items as well. Had seafood enchilada. It had a crispy outside with perfectly cooked shrimp and crab inside. Took home cheesecake for later - well worth the calories!!

We've tried Duffers several times and have never been disappointed. On Sunday we tried the grilled salmon and the pasta special which had shrimp over rotini with a light cream sauce to die for. The salmon was perfectly cooked. The service is always great and the food is delish. And the water view is so nice. We've stopped in for... More

The service was outstanding and so was the meal. It the first day of our beach trip and we didn't want to cook. There were five of us - two of us split the seafood chimichanga, two split the crab cake, another had the pasta special of the day and we all joined in on the wings. Everything we had... More

We've visited Duffer's for many years during our family vacation to Oak Island. As a general rule, they serve great prime rib, and the views from the back deck overlook the luscious golf course greens. From what we can tell, the Club serves dinner to 50-75 members and guests nightly. Even though we're from out of town, we are always... More

Our first time here, we had the 8oz prime ribs with a salad and two sides. Medium rare was a little too rare for me but they took care of that for me and I enjoyed the rest of my meal. Great service and pretty darn good food.

Not a huge menu but everything we have tried has been very good. Wonderful waitstaff. The view of ocean and grounds is stunning. We keep going back!

This has always been a great place but not today. The menu has changed to Southwest Cuisine and is very disappointing. Gone is the Cobb Salad and Chef Salad replaced by the too spicy to eat Southwest Salad and is not great tasting. I believe this is their "New Coke / Classic Coke" moment. Go back to the old reliable... More

Had another fine catered meal at Duffers! Salad was fresh and crisp. Fish was delectable and and nicely done without looking like a mess of fish thrown in a serving carafe. Prime rib was pre-cut; it was tasty and tender enough to cut with a fork! Service was attentive and not overbearing..
