We are out of towners who come to Newport twice a year. We wanted to try something but we’re leery over the mixed reviews. The Corn, Shrimp, Lobster chowder was excellent. The Stuffies (stuffed clams) were very good as were the fried whole belly clams....More

There aren't so many healthy options, but Duffy's has fantastic food! The seafood is amazing and well-prepared. The service is fast and friendly. We aren't locals, but the clientele appeared to be mainly locals the night we were there and the tavern was pretty full.

If you are craving fried foods & chowder this maybe the place for you. Not very many healthy food choices. Could use a salad plate as a lunch special. Add some grilled chicken or fish and you would have a winner.

Very casual, sat at the bar and ordered the lobster dinner which was very tasty and very inexpensive at $16.95. I had been here before and it was consistently good food.

We had a family gathering of in and out of town relatives on a Sunday afternoon. Everyone there could not have been more accommodating. Duffy's served clambakes. The lobster and the clams were perfectly cooked even though they served about 35 people. We will always...More

We have had the double lobster special, but never the triple. Wish I could help you. I love Duffy's however.
