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.

Wonderful environment. All the staff were very friendly. Our server was Sarah and we highly recommend asking for her to be your server. She is friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. She listened to our questions and gave us insight into options that were not printed in the menu. We ordered and shared the short rib hash and had more than enough. We also ordered two biscuits to start (that was not listed on the menu). The portions are large and prices seemed fair.

King + Duke is an outstanding restaurant at One Buckhead Plaza. It’s great for lunch or dinner with awesome patio. The hot chicken sandwich is enough for two. The menu changes periodically, so don’t get used to a particular dish. I would love to see the lobster roll back on the menu!

Service was extremely slow. Took over 30 minutes each time we ordered drinks. They were out of some menu items on Saturday. Our bread came after our entrees. We expected much better service from a Ford Fry restaurant.

The service was terrible. Waitstaff walked away without taking one person's order, brought us incorrect beverages, brought out half of one person's order 10 minutes before everyone else's, took a crazy long time. Food was okay but nothing special. Would never recommend this restaurant and certainly won't go back.

The management at King and Duke prepared for an amazing experience for my wife and I to celebrate our anniversary. We asked for the Chef's choice, but they don't do that anymore. Instead they gave us a wine and plate pairing that the server picked. Brandon was fabulous, the pairings amazing and the food so creative and delicious. This was the best dinner we've ever had.

Wonderful from beginning to end! We were at the end of the brunch period, so it was very pleasant and uncrowded. Food was delightful, accomodated my KETO needs on request. Left my sunglasses on the table, and staff saved them so that when I called to check, they were quick to tell me the glasses were safe. Sophia was our wonderful waitperson.

Excellent service. We sat outside and it was cool and noise level is just right. Our server Tokie was excellent. It was our anniversary she made us feel special. The pop ups are great. We ordered fish and duck and they were great. The dessert was good as well. Just wish there were more entree selection.

The food was great, our waiter was patient and knowledgeable and the outdoor patio was a very nice setting. I actually noticed several parties with children. I would not say the menu is kid friendly, but the atmosphere seemed to be.

The only thing that could have used improvement were the cocktails. They sounded good in theory, but were not concocted well. I had two different ones and both were somewhat unpleasant in flavor.

I am a regular patron, and generally a fan. Recently, however, service (normally a hallmark of Ford Fry restaurants) has been, at best, uneven. Our most recent server seemed disinterested and “put upon.”

Portions are too large. It can get very noisy. Some dishes are good and some are over done in the creative realm. It would be good to add to your comfort foods some simpler great tasting healthy green leaf salad options- that's comfort food for me! and , All Grass fed small tenderloins, smaller bite southern appetizers, smaller portions in general.

Been to K+D many times, though not in the last 12 months or so. Food value seems diminished significantly. Although the staff seems busy, no one is in much of a hurry. As a result things were slow to arrive at the table, especially the beverage service. I’ve been a supporter of this restaurant group’s projects for years, so I was disappointed to see a drop in the overall performance at K+D.

Amazing dinner experience. The staff and managers were all a step above the rest. Food was excellent. We were curious about the bone marrow, but were hesitant, so the manager sent one over for us to try. So awesome!! The berry crostata is a must try with the buttermilk ice cream. The experience felt like a dinner party at home with friends.
