Duffer's really has it all. Arcade, ice cream, mini golf, and delicious breakfast and dinner. The atmosphere is fun and comfortable. The staff is happy and well-treated. It is a wonderful place to go with people of all ages.

Wow--their ice cream is delicious! And it is totally worth what you pay. The portions are mega-sized!

We tried this for dinner one night and were pleasantly surprised. I had the Impossible burger, husband had the short rib steak sandwich with roasted balsamic onions, blue cheese, and horseradish sauce. He really liked it. I had a small sundae, H had one, too....All very good. I understand the owner is religious, but the uniforms the girls are wearing, some kind of big, dark apron that goes down to the middle of their legs look frumpy. Also, the amount of styrofoam leftover containers leaving with customers is huge. Styrofoam is extremely bad for the environment. Maybe switch to cardboard. Also, switch to paper straws. Or no straws. The old fashioned ice cream parlor decor looks nice. The 1940’s music pumped through the speakers could be updated. The servers are all very nice. They have miniature golf and a small arcade, and small gift shop.More

Very friendly staff. Quick service. Everything was cooked properly, tasted great and was hot. Their ice cream shop is awesome. It may seem a little pricey, but they give you generous amounts of ice cream and it’s all yummy!

Called to ask a simple question- “are the sprinkles gluten free”? My son has Celiac and he loves sprinkles on his ice cream. The girl who answered the phone tried to be helpful but I could hear the people in the background who sounded annoyed...at the question. “I don’t’ know”, “just tell them no”. Not very considerate. I will never patronize this business.More

I've been coming to Wildwood all my life and somehow missed out on Duffers ice cream until now. This was the best homemade ice cream I've ever had! Need to come back and try every flavor. Parking is very limited but definitely worth the trip!!!!

Stopped off in the afternoon for a quick ice cream and milkshake and ended up with a mammoth bananas foster waffle. Great and friendly service.

First time to Duffers... I know, crazy right?! Great outdoor space under a tent. My family of 4 was seated at a large picnic table where we had an excellent dinner. My husband ran across the street to the store as this is a BYO....Felt the tables were socially distant and employees all wore masks. The desserts are to die for... and after dinner we played a few games in the arcade and a round of mini golfMore

I don't think they take reservations. It can get busy quick though.

Best to call them, perhaps they will close off to the general public if you call well in advance.
