At King and Duke, we showcase locally sourced ingredients through simple, yet focused hearth cooking. Our goal is not to manipulate food, but to accentuate the natural flavors of our products through slower methods of cooking and the smoke of the wood fire. Through this primitive technique, constantly moving and manipulating the live fire, we invest exacting attention to the preparation of each and every dish.

Our managing partner, Ford Fry, named the restaurant after two characters in Huckleberry Finn, “The King” and “The Duke," a pair of grifters who ‘put on airs’ and pretended to be royalty, when in fact they were a couple of hillbillies who lived in the woods. With our slightly mischievous ways ☺, a huge focus on quality, yet a primitive cooking style and down-to earth atmosphere, Chef Fry felt like it was the perfect name for our newest restaurant.

My wife and I loved our dinner tonight. We started with the endive salad and the bbq shrimp. Both were excellent. Then we had the lasagna and the chicken. Both were absolutely delicious!

The waiter was fantastic. And the manager came by to check and see if we were enjoying our dinner. She was incredibly attentive and engaging.

We topped it off with two of the homemade ice creams - vanilla and brownie. What a perfect ending to a perfect dinner. We will definitely be back!

We have been to King and Duke many times and it never disappoints. We had some good friends in town this weekend and chose to have dinner there again....it was fantastic. The server was knowledgeable about the food and drinks and everything came out hot and deliciously.

We’ve dined at King + Duke on multiple ocassions so my son selected it for my birthday. However, the food this time was a BUST. Burned grill shrimp appetizer - tough pork loin - burger orders ALL wrong. Chocolate tarte dessert wasn’t good either. Popovers weren’t great as typical either. Ugh. Maybe there was a new chef. Either way, I’ll think twice before returning. Disappointing.

We have been to King and Duke multiple times. Overall the food was ok. It was a bit tight from a seating perspective and our food took over an hour to be presented which impacted our experience. Will give them one more chance.

Good food and Corbin provided superb service! Unfortunately, the place is just so loud it is impossible to have a conversation across the table. It doesn’t help that the music is blaring so loudly. It is a restaurant, not a night club - and most people like to talk during dinner.

Unique food choices that were of high quality and taste.
Beef Brisket Hash was tender large cubes with deep fried new
potatoes and excellent seasoning.
Mark Twain would have enjoyed overbite.

Our server, Corbin was fantastic. He was the highlight of the meal. The food was extremely salty....and a few dishes we only took a few bites (scallops and chicken). The vegetables arrived at the table looking tired...it seemed as if the green beans had been sitting on a warmer for too long. And again.....all salty. We won't be back.

My wife and I shared a salad of endive leaves filled with apple, cheese and pecans, which was seasonal and very good. My halibut filet was served with a napa cabbage slaw. My wife's trout filet was quite large. The pureed potatoes with cheese were to die for.

The menu rotates, but the current menu made for the best meal of 2018
Our meal was:
1. Georgia grilled shrimp
2. Steak tartare
3. Oysters, which were so good we ordered a second batch
4. The duck was the best duck I’ve ever had
5. Toffee pudding

Rashan, our waiter was so attentive and personable. The food was all delicious and so fresh, and the bread.... can’t even describe to you how amazing it was. It was the best bread anywhere. It was our anniversary and they brought out complementary champagne for my husband and me. Wonderful experience.

My wife and I had a date night here. Would I go back? Yes, because I would do things differently. Is this place amazing? No. It is a solid, pricey place with a nice but nothing fancy atmosphere. We sat inside and were put right next to a station located in the middle of the floor where the waiters get water refills for tables. They were clanging away behind me, off and on, for the hour we were there. There were also two small buckets full of dirty dishrags and water directly behind me. Sorry, but when I go to a high end place, I don't want that stuff sitting directly behind me while I eat. It should be in the kitchen or anywhere away from the diners. Also, the tables where we were seated are smashed together, and the waiter tended to the table next to my wife and I very often; therefore, his butt was literally in my face for 30% of my meal. My food was a B overall - I ordered the trout, and it was average (very lemony and salty). I've made better at home. I have heard from friends that other meals are very good. I would go to this restaurant again and give it another shot, but I would ask to sit somewhere else (outside perhaps?), and I would not order the trout.
