The Father’s Day specials (steak) was over cooked, but the waiter brought out new steaks. The service was incredible. A little loud, but overall a good experience.
It is the best on Kauai. Our server,Frank, was great. Food delicious? P
We were running late to our reservation. When I called Brittney ensured us that we had nothing to worry about. When we arrived, we were seated within 5 minutes (a big plus!!). Our waitress Kapua was the best! She provided such awesome service. Mark B. also came by to see how we were doing!! Awesome staff & great customer service!
Seem to me that the Salad Bar has less selection and not kept 'fresh' like before? The fish I had was not that good, maybe I should not have asked to bake the fish? Little things means a lot!
If you can get Kehlani as your server do it, he made the night amazing!
It is on the coast so the views are, of course, beautiful, but the upstairs dining had a Disney Resturant type of feel. It is good for kids, but not a place I would go with a group of adults to enjoy a nice dinner. The area itself is worth seeing, but the dining in Duke’s was mediocre.
During our stay on the island of Kauai, our mean at Dukes was by far the best! we all ordered something different and it was all amazing! Make sure to get the Hula pie!
Beautiful location and restaurant, open table reservation was honored and given a nice waterview table, excellent service! Can add salad bar to entree, delicious salads and muffins. We returned the next day for lunch at their downstairs bar next to beach, also a great experience!
Everything was delicious. The salad bar is so good and a wonderful variety. I still wish they would bring back the Teriyaki steak that they used to have on the menu. Our server Kevin was excellent and made sure we had an enjoyable dinner. The kabob was good but still not the teriyaki steak. Of course we always enjoy the hula pie. It is always our fist stop when we arrive at the hotel.
Went to Duke’s on the last night of our vacation. We sat on the deck and had a great view of the beach, bay, and nearby mountains. Food was excellent and dollar for dollar was one of the best spots we dined on Kauai. Service was great as well.
Another wonderful dinner at Duke’s. The salad bar is awesome, fresh fish delectable and service friendly and professional. Way to go!!
I wouldn't order seafood again. It's very hard to cook fish well when there are so many people ordering. I should have figured that out. My fish was over cooked to the max, and I did let our server know. Everything else was great. This Is definitely a steak place. The ambience is superb.
We had a great dinner at Duke's (upstairs) to celebrate our anniversary. I had Mahi Mahi which was fresh, moist and cooked perfectly. My husband had a steak which was also very good. The wait staff is great - even brought us a piece of their famous macadamia nut pie for dessert to celebrate. And they do have the best salad bar on the island.
Fantastic Food and Service!
It was a dinner on our honeymoon. The service was amazing but my pasta was obviously over cooked. The hula pie was great though.
It was amazing! Fantastic drinks, great food!
And incredible service!
It was our first time there and it was great! The atmosphere couldn't be beaten and the food was delicious. Our waiter was excellent and the fact that he was an Eagles fan (since we are from Philly) was such a coincidence! lol Thanks for a great end to a fabulous vacation.
Waitresses were great. They moved our location when the trade winds were too breezy for my wife. Views were excellent. Live entertainment from downstairs added to the ambiance.
Great service from ken.
Great salads bar and dessert.
We ate here to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary and it was fantastic! Our table was ready at the appointed time and the view was just about as good as it gets. Jeremy, our waiter, was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. He helped us pick out the right wine to go with our meal and made sure we got a piece of hula pie for free in celebration of our anniversary. This is a great place to have a great meal in Kauai.
Extremely reliable great fish dishes with nice salad bar with fantastic views of bay.
Amazing food, service, and experience!
fantastic food but in an extremely touristy area of Lihue...kind of felt like you were in Disney or something. altho the food was a million times better of course
Excellent servers, great food
Fantastic service and ambiance. Salad bar was great, but the entrees were just OK. Definitely paid for the location and hospitality, but that’s Duke’s In general.
Incredible view...spectacular service and exceptional food. Highly recommend!
LOVED our meal...from the drinks...to salad bar...to entrees....amazing view, and our waiter, Frank, was the cherry on top! He was so knowledgeable and helpful, he gave several suggestions that were awesome....we completely enjoyed this meal!
We spent 6 nights in Kauai and 5 of those we went to Dukes. Our hotel was within walkable distance but we loved the atmosphere and the food was very good. They had a variety of food which gave us the opportunity to try different meals yet enjoy the great view. Their wings are awesome! Also their specialty fish was the best we had! We hope to be back some day!
Perfect ending for a great Kauai vacation. Ambiance is wonderful. The fish specials sounded great, picked one and was very pleased. The Mai tai was not too sweet....the Hawaiian 🌺 rum with Hawaiian 🌺 coffee topped with whipped cream was a perfect light dessert.
Can’t wait to do this in Maui soon!
Anniversary Service outstanding. Foood okay
The food was delicious and the restaurant had a million dollar view.
Impeccable service at the restaurant, serving all of your needs. Get any of the seafood dishes and local Hawaiian dishes.
Loved our Evening. Food was superb!! View was excellent!! And our server Kevin was stupendous !!
I would most definitely recommend Duke's! This is the best spot in Lihue... live music and the beach; open air and food that is ono-licious! Every dish is excellent; and the salad bar is such a great price as an add-on or just a-la carte. A bargain I think. Some of the best muffins and salads offered! I always order the Hula Pie. One of these days I'm going to buy the plate at the gift shop just to remember how yummy it is!
Although the waitstaff was extremely courteous, they were one of the most incompetent I’ve ever experienced. They forgot our appetizer, gave us the wrong drink order and when they brought out entrees they offered to take them back and put them under the heat lamp while we ate our appetizer!!! Both my husband and I had Ono which we love, but it was way over cooked. The sauces were good but just put at the end over unseasoned fish. The restaurant itself felt like a 1950s theme park in need of renovations. It was loud and over the top and not in a good way. The menu proclaims that they use local fish and can prepare it in several ways. But I’m pretty sure they just cook a bunch of the Fresh catch and sauces ahead of time and then mix and match when people order. The comped us the appetizer (Ahi Poke which was wonderful) the round of incorrect drinks and an over the top dessert. Again they were super nice, but it just didn’t make up for all that went wrong. It was just not the way we wanted to spend our last dinner in Kauai.
Our server was excellent. The food was good as always. We asked for and got a table on the rail on the lanai.
Dukes is just a great, wonderful and happy place to go for a good, if not great meal. The seared ahi is fantastic every time! It’s a bit formulaic, but it’s a total go to place for us. Perfect for the first night ... or any other for that matter. Has to be on the agenda for any length of stay.
You CANNOT go wrong with Duke's Kauai. Been there many times over the past 15 years, and never a bad meal or experience. Relaxing atmosphere, amazing service; and the view. Man, what a view!
Don't forget the Hula Pie!
Talk about overrated. The salad bar, was poor. I ate several salads. They were warm, and they already had the next bowl out to replace the ones people were dipping from. I guess so they would be warm as well. The pasta salads were the same. The bread was fine... but come on. Our meals were fine, however they were nothing to write home about. Given the opportunity to go back, I wouldn't. There are many places on the island with great food & ocean views.
