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.
