I have been going to Duffy's since the original on Alt. A1A in Northlake. Thank you Paul Emmett, you have given me a place where I love to go eat and hang out with friends and family. I am sadden by your leaving us so young. I know you will be watching over us as Duffy's angel. R.I.P.

Pace to his soul

He was such a kind and inspiring man. I've been with the company for five years now and am still loving the company I work for. I have worked at 3 stores now and have served him his family and friends dozens of times at each location. He loved to quiz the servers and make sure they knew their job well and his team members were chosen accordingly to his goals of a great employee. He had a great sense of humor and I loved working for him. He will stay with the company in spirit. I hope to be promoted from a corporate trainer/ bartender to management one day and it's very unfortunate and saddening that I will not be interviewed by Paul emmet himself. Rest in peace Paul emmet!! We all love you dearly.

Duffy's is certainly our favorite place to go. We've always told our friends how great the customers are treated and that whoever was in charge was a very generous person. It wasn't until recently that I realized who the owner was and was actually just about to send him an email and thank him. So sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to his wife and family.

- Kathy Moss
I met Paul Emmett shortly after the Plantation Duffy's opened in July 2010! I was sitting at the bar eating and he walked up, interduced himself, asked how the food was, chatted for a few minutes and excused himself! I always sit at the bar and he never came in after that that he didn't at least say hello! I'm very sorry to hear of his passing!! I extend to his family and to the hundreds of Duffy's family my heart felt condolences! He will surely be missed, but I know that his family will carry on the great tradition that he so pain stakingly built over all these many years!! RIP GOOD MAN!!

- Ronald Reid
Paul gave me my start out of college in 2004, I spent nearly 3 years at Duffy's as a GM. We didn't always see it the same way, but I respected him and was grateful for the opportunities he gave me, I will miss him, he was a great man.

- Dustin Lapekas
What a great place to just relax and enjoy your company. A nice memory was on my way to the bathroom and the bartenders were passing out samples of Mojitos and boy they were good!!!!!

- Susan Pontikes
You brought a true neighborhood restaurant to my neighborhood

- Andrew Gordon
You will be truly missed. Your family has our deepest sympathy and are in our thoughts and prayers. We just love going to Duffy's, Mr. and Mrs. Mario Messier and Nena Nau.

I simply wished to thank you very much again. I do not know the things that I could possibly have created in the absence of the actual ways documented by you relating to this problem. It actually was a terrifying case for me, but encountering this well-written form you resolved that took me to jump over gladness. I am grateful for this support and in addition have high hopes you comprehend what a powerful job you happen to be carrying out instructing the others using a site. Probably you've never encountered all of us. adidas tubular [url=http://www.adidastubular.co.uk]adidas tubular[/url]
