Duffy’s Sports Grill Finally Comes to Miami
DUFFY’S TAKING ITS TALENTS TO NORTH BEACH
If you’re a Miamian who spends any time north of the County Line – and you are a sports fan – chances are you’ve been to Duffy’s. It’s a place with cheap drinks, more TV’s than your entire block, and every sports package imaginable. You could probably convince a bartender to put on a Cricket Match from Pakistan if you tried hard enough.
Duffy’s first venture in South Florida’s most populous county is at the old Water Club site on NE 163rd Street in North Miami Beach. The setting right on the Intercoastal seems like it would be better suited for a romantic candlelit bistro-type place. But surprisingly, lining a waterfront patio with flat screens works at Duffy’s. As does its massive outdoor bar.
But Duffy’s isn’t just a sports bar on steroids. What has kept people coming back in Broward and Palm Beach are its drinks specials and rewards programs.
The Happy Hour is really a Happy 10 Hours, as the 2-for-1 drinks go from 4 p.m. to close. And unlike a lot of Happy Hours that force you to get Rot Gut Tequila or Vagrant Special Vodka, this deal extends to everything Duffy’s has on the shelf (excluding shots). So, basically, it’s a cheap place to drink in addition to a great place to watch a game.
The North Miami Beach location is Duffy’s largest restaurant, with three indoor dining rooms, a massive indoor bar, two outdoor dining rooms and another giant bar on the patio.
A MIAMI RESTAURANT WITH BROWARD SERVICE
The service at this particular location was, like most new restaurants in Miami, excellent. Hopefully Duffy’s will not follow the pattern, though, and revert to rude, slow, incompetent service once local managers take over. The Duffy’s brand is big on service, so I am optimistic. Word on the street is the next location will be in Miami Lakes, then hopefully in Kendall. Which will finally give Kendall at least one redeeming feature. But until then, celebrate Duffy’s entrance into our county, and give it a shot. At worst, you’ll get 10% back.
