    I haven't been to Duval's in years. In the past I found the food to be lacking in flavor and freshness. Nothing was ever truly bad, just ordinary. We returned this week to give it another try and found that nothing had changed. I had the Ocean Scampi. Neither the lobster tail nor the shrimp had the texture of truly fresh shellfish. The sauce needed more flavor. The pasta was a little too al dente. My Aperol Spritz was fine,

    Wonderful service from Jake. Blackened Grouper was perfect, as were the sides: rice pilaf & mixed veggies. The Bacon Old Fashion was delicious! We’ll be back!

    This was our 4th time to Duvalls and it did not disappoint. We were an hour early for our reservation and they were able to accommodate us outdoors undercover. We brought some friends/neighbors who had not been and they fell in love with the food, ambience and service. The day was perfect so sitting outside was an exceptional experience. Forest our waiter was very tentative, checking on us as needed, but not hovering, allowing for conversation and wine to continue flowing. Favorite appetizer hands-down is the seafood bruschetta, calamari, and the shaved steak spring rolls. I ordered the seafood platter, scrumptiously delicious. We live closer to Tampa, but won’t hesitate to drive the distance to Duvalls for an exceptional dining experience!

    Food was delicious. I had the Seafood Borchetta followed by the Bouillabaisse. It was outstanding! We sat at the bar and watched Anthony provide impeccable service! He definitely is a "Head and Shoulders" professional! Duval's is lucky to have him!!!

    Delicious lunch options. Excellent service. Nice outdoor seating for conversation and relaxing on a Saturday afternoon (Main Street location so expect street noise). Have been here many times and will return!

    We ate on the patio out front - very comfortable, under the shade of a large tree. Fresh catch of the day was swordfish, grouper, and red drum. I had a signature salad with crab cake, which was delicious. Highly recommend.
