About King + Duke

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.

Great food. The chicken fried steak was delicious. I love the “side” of bacon I got. It was literally a plate full of it. Sitting at the chefs table over looking the line was fun, especially since I was dining alone. Service was very good. My waiter was awesome and made sure I had a great experience. I will be back for sure!!

We had a pretty late reservation time of 8:45p. We arrived and the restaurant was packed and had very little standing room. We moved to the bar and the bar staff was prompt to come take an order. They were prompt and very friendly even with the full restaurant. We were seated quite late even tho we had a reservation, however the manager sent over complimentary apps to the table to make up for the long wait! Our waiter was very knowledgeable on the menu and made terrific suggestions. We had a really great meal and nice time. Worth going back again!!

I found King + Duke through Open Table and didn’t know what to expect. What a great place for what I call, Event Dining. Start with drinks, then try almost all apps, then order dinner and share so everyone tastes everything...with great cocktails and wine. Their wine list is fantastic. The sommelier in training was able to answer my question about the climate of the region to help me select a great wine suitable to my pallete...a great South African Red...which I had never tried before. Hats off to Nicole, our waitress...she was aces. And the food...wow, every dish was a winner. Truly enjoyed our 3.5 hour Event Dining at King + Duke.

The service was exceptional. However, I thought the menu was limited. More selections would be better. First I had the deviled eggs which were delicious but slightly over salted. I had the sea bass which had a fishy taste. So I didn't care for it. The au jus was delicious. I had the potato puree which was very good and very cheesy. The dessert I had was the donuts which were quite dry. But it was a great and delicious surprise to find flan under the cream.

The King and Duke has one of those menus where you'd like one of everything! Delicious. Beautifully presented. Memorable. I chose a Tuesday for my first visit here as I had heard about the seafood chowder. The serve very generous portions and the soup was delicious! The service was outstanding and I'll be excited to return.

They went above and beyond to make my sister feel extra special for her birthday. They were very accommodating with splitting portions (had them come out on separate plates). The champagne birthday toast was a special addition as well as cutting the cake we brought for us. The food was beyond delicious and came out in a reasonable time. Thanks!!

This is our second time at king and duke and the two experiences couldn’t be more different. The first time we came away amazed with the meal, the second we were disappointed and kinda turned off on how much we spent. What made our second experience so poor was the service and the excuses the restaurant gave for an error with our meal. Our waitress was inattentive, rude, and slow to respond to our request. The second big issue was the execution of the king steak we ordered, it costs 110 dollars. We split it between two with one person receiving the fat cap and the bone. We asked if serving pure fat was part of the steak experience to which the manager responded that one of her waitress loves it. What a bs excuse. She obviously knew she was in the wrong to serve us a steak where 1/3 of the total weight was inedible. They ended up giving us two free desserts, but for whatever reason they picked them for us, kinda weird. All in all the experience left a lot to be desired especially since the check was 250 dollars. We will try other places before going back.

King + Duke has a relaxing/chill atmosphere that makes you want to sit with a drink for hours and order every item on the menu. I will be visiting King + Duke next time I am in Atlanta. Our server Mike was knowledgeable and helped us through the menu so everything we ordered on our tapas style adventure was superb. I suggest the potatoes purree, Georgia shrimp, mushrooms, crispy Brussel sprouts, and a New York sour.

14/10 would dine again.
