My 90 years old mom and I ate there last night. The waitress was an old friend of ours from prior visits and was great to us. We love seeing her. The food was excellent as always. I didn't take our waitress' suggestion of ordering the steam muscles. Later in the meal I admitted my mistake and she gave me... More

We took out of town guests to Duffy's due to the great price of the lobster dinner. Service was painful as the waitress seemed confused. It may have been her first night but she did not have a "Trainee" badge on. Real slow and the place was not exceptionally busy. The meals were served hot and the boiled lobsters were... More

Having moved to FL 12 years ago, I always look forward to a trip to Duffy's! Consistently good RI grub since I can remember. Local seafood, local crowd and great service!

Food was hot, tasty and perfect for a very late lunch --and served up quick to hungry travelers (great when you are trying to meet a schedule). You'll find pub food, seafood, and salads on the menu. The corn chowder was oh-so-good. The bar is a prominent feature of this establishment; it's clearly a well-loved local watering hole. It wasn't... More

WORST DINING EXPERINCE OF MY LIFE!!! (Avid travelers) disgusting glasses, not enough menus for 10 people in an empty restaurant, 2 out of 10 people in our party did not even get served food (explanation was they just didn't make it), no apology, manager Robin came in drunk while smoking and drinking on the patio and yelling at us. They... More

We were disappointed because they had run out of the larger lobsters, but 2 smaller did the job. We have an order of Calamari to start and it was enough for the 6 of us, and light and crispy. The fish and chips were excellent, as well as, the RI Clear Chowder and Clam Cakes,

Have been to Duffy's whenever we visit RI. Our last visit was no different. Great food, good selection and really good service. Menu has a little bit to offer anyone. I craved clam cakes and was not disappointed. Clam Chowder was okay. Our waitress was amazing considering I have a large family and we were all there. Prices were very... More

My husband and I went to dinner around 5:45 on a Saturday night. There were customers in the restaurant, but there were plenty of seats. The hostess sat us down, as soon as, we arrived, but didn't give us menus as we sat down, which I thought was odd. A waitress walked by and we asked for menus. She walked... More

Part of the family arrived for our wedding early last week from Seattle. My grandson was craving lobster, he is 11, and loves his seafood. There were 8 of us. Had a great time, ordered the lobster special and we were not disappointed. Everything was great. Service was excellent. Restaurant was small and quaint. A good time was had by... More

We each had stuffies and baked scallops. The stuffies were really good, but the scallops were okay. Not much seasoning on them so they didn't have enough taste. The service was really good and the people were very friendly. We will try this place again, but we will order burgers.

Thank Bob J
