When Duffy took ownership of what was a failing restaurant in 2006, he had a vision and worked hard to bring it to life. By January of 2007 when Duffy's opened, he and his son had completely leveled and rebuilt the property from scratch. Today, it is a hip bar on the strip where locals and tourists stop by for a few drinks and a chance to have a little fun.


The bar is the center of the operation at Duffy's, but you won't want to pass up the chance to compliment your beverage with some of the kitchen's signature seafood offerings. Options include grilled scallop gazpacho, grilled tuna, and fish tacos.

Duffy's is a bar and grill that offers American and Caribbean cuisines, as well as hamburgers. As far as service and setting, you can expect the formality to be very casual. Diners are welcome to come by to enjoy both dinner and lunch, so don't hesitate to pay this place a visit. You might fall in love with a local favorite.


Described as the "Cheers" of Puerto Rico, Duffy's is a restaurant always packed with locals -- which should speak to the quality of the food and the service. Guests are encouraged to get up from their tables and mingle, dance a little, and do whatever strikes them that feels like fun in the moment.
