Duffy's is much bigger from the inside than it looks from the outside. The bar serves up a decent beer list (domestics and some imports) and the hugest sandwiches, which are quite tasty. Patrons sit in one of two huge rooms on gigantic stools and tables. It's like Alice in Wonderland after a super-sized dose of "Drink me." Many of them take in sporting events during the day, making it pleasantly occupied, but not too crowded. Daily drink specials up the ante as well, most notably Friday's $5 martini deal.
Food-wise, Duffy's offers classy bar appetizers like goat cheese and artichoke fritters and the all-popular sliders. Soups, salads and a few entrees round out the menu, in addition to a heavy roster of sandwiches, including buffalo chicken, reuben, grilled vegetable, Black & Blue burger and tuna croissant. The service is still somewhat spotty (maybe it's the size of the place that slows them down in travel time, but waitresses, bartenders and other members of the waitstaff need to work together more to time things) but with the pleasant, kick-back atmosphere of the place, who cares? No one here is in a rush, and no one should be.
Average cost: <$10
