Duffy’s Sport Grill, located in North Miami Beach, is a perfect dining location for boaters. You can dock your boat for free while dining along a large dock spanning the length of this eatery.

It’s a large restaurant with ample seating options, large screen televisions throughout, and an abundantly huge neon lit bar.  Outside seating on the covered deck treats diners to a relaxing view of the boats traveling the waterway. At the south end of the outdoor seating is an outdoor pool for patrons who are 18 years and older to enjoy.

We sat close to the water on their large outdoor deck, feeling the cool sea breeze. Duffy’s offers a two for one drink special every day, all day. I narrowed down the five margarita choices to the pomegranate margarita and my friend chose the “Dirty Mojito.” Along with the drinks, we ordered Sweet Buffalo Wings as an appetizer — how could we not when they were touted as “award winning”? The knowledgeable server was quick with our order, bringing us the hot wings dripping with sweet and spicy sauce, accompanied by two helpings of blue cheese dip.

There are a variety of menu choices at Duffy’s, the same for both lunch and dinner, including burgers, seafood, pasta and sandwiches, and 580 calorie or less options. Vegetarian options include vegetable soup, salads, and a black bean burger.

For lunch, the restaurant has a fairly priced special. Diners have the option of three combinations:   either soup and salad, a half sandwich and salad, or a half sandwich and soup.  I opted for the third choice, and was rewarded with a savory and satisfying hot baked ham and Swiss cheese sandwich on French bread (the pepper crusted bacon and scallions were a nice addition) and a delicious New England clam chowder. For a few minutes, I thought I was eating on the shores of Maine!  My friend enjoyed the well-stuffed corned beef and coleslaw on rye bread along with a crisp and refreshing Caesar salad.

Save room for dessert. Treat yourself to the cool and creamy key lime pie, brownie sundae or — for the more adventurous eaters— the crunchy fried cheesecake.
