We dropped into Duffy's a few times over the two weeks we were in Anna Maria Island. $1.00 beers all day long, friendly staff, great burgers. Outdoor mini-patio was great to relax and look at all the different license plates they have decorating all the walls. Fun in a very laid back sense.

One of the best burgers on the island! Great place for a frosty mug of Bud for a buck. A local joint but we visit it several times while we are here on AMI.

This is an old gas station remodeled into a burger and hot dog tavern. The burgers are great and the beer is the coldest on the island. They often have other food on the special menu board, all the food has been very good. A place where the locals hang out. You can come as you are, right from the... More

Have been visiting AMI for 17 years, driven and walked past Duffy's but never ventured in - what a mistake! Not the smartest restaurant/bar but it's a friendly place - very busy at peak times - but service is excellent and no real long wait for food. Good selection of draft beers and the burger I had - blue cheese... More

And it did not disappoint. Actually went twice in three day stay in the area. Good burgers. Good prices. Order from the bar and pick up when they call your name. No table service. Ambience is rough and tumble. It was nice in a way not to have any fries available and the other sides were good in their place.... More

Ate lunch. I got the burger with jalapeños. It was really good. Sat at the bar instead of tables. Great service. Only complaint - no fries.

Love the burger and ice cold beer for lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is perfect for a beach restaurant.
