Had concerns that it was inside the Casino and would be noisy and filled with a bunch of gamblers drinking and shouting. to my surprise we were seated away from the casino entrance in a booth in a lovely dining room. Prime Rib was exact, cooked as ordered as well as my husbands filet. Salad and side dishes were so plentiful that we split them both and still did not finish them. My one negative was the price of the cappuccino. We ordered 2. they were $10.00 each They did not contain any alcohol, just coffee and milk.

Music was a bit too loud. Service was great. Food was good but the Lobster Mac and cheese was not quite as good as remembered.

We have dined at Dukes many time and have yet to be disappointed. Food is excellent and enough variety that pleases everyone. We had numerous waiters and everyone was efficient and helpful.

While variety of menu is good the food and service need help! A well done Duke Burger was ordered and so well done burnt and not chewable. Waiter promptly returned it to kitchen but waiter after 45 minutes and 5 of us completely finished with our meal returned telling us Burger was being wrapped to go. I responded no my Mom is 89 and she has been waiting to eat please bring her meal out to her. We felt rushed to get our seats refilled . The kitchen manager did apologize and took the Duke Burger off our Bill . Our steaks were good but our sides tasteless : Parmesan Rossiuto , Mash Potatoes. Be very careful with their table chairs when sitting they slide very easy potential fall risk.

Our server was exceptional and food was amazing, sat in dining room to left of bar area. Only recommendation is that there was a lot of various background music completing with TV’s in that room. Service time was perfect.

Food is over salted. Steaks always come out cooked incorrectly.

“ Classic creme brûlée” is not prepared
In a classic manner.
This is a poor imitation of a good steakhouse.
Very noisy; the piano player in the adjacent bar area was playing straight up jazz which was annoying during dinner.

Go to Morton’s in Saratoga.

I rate a restaurant first by the lighting level and the music level followed by the comfort of the chairs. All three get high praise at Duke's. Service was superb, the food [salmon, parmesan risotto] was perfectly cooked. I must compliment the consistency.....each visit has been equally fine.

Stuffed sea bass distinguished, filet mignon Oscar - filet melt in you mouth, crab too shredded, hard to find, roasted garlic overcooked, dry, entirely forgettable. Service first rate.

To be honest the food was not very good. The scallops were so oversalted they were unedible. The filet was pretty good but came out cold. It took a while to get the bread and the drinks and the appetizers. The servers were wonderful

Fantastic! Very surprised by the piano player/ singer. Prices good. We were celebrating a birthday and the waitress brought out a 10 layer chocolate cake!!!! Awesomeness. I had Filet Mignon and nasged potatoes. One suggestion raise the price just a pinch and serve a small portion of potatoes with the meal, other than that just wonderful!

Our server ‘Rana’ was wonderful - pleasant, friendly and professional. Unfortunately, they were short staffed and our food was cold when we were served (by the manager ‘Ryan’) who was great. As we advised him of our meal being cold - he adjusted our bill accordingly and even gave us a dessert. We understand many restaurants are having staffing issues and we were treated very well and will return with no hesitation. Great service from the staff who waited on us. Thank you.

Excellent restaurant conveniently located off casino floor. Upscale ambience. The menu is a la carte but varied. My prime rib was delicious and cooked to perfection. My only dislike was quite a few items with horseradish to which I'm allergic. Pricing was consistent with the type of food and environment. Our server was very polite and helpful. I would recommend Duke's for anyone visiting the Casino or for a special occasion!

John was our server and was great. Very attentive, but not overly so. Prime Rib was 10/10. Most everything was; asparagus, cream corn, sole, wine, etc. Crab cakes fell short though.

I highly suggest this spot!

My birthday dinner. It was our first time there and we were very disappointed in the food. My wife had the scallops and they tasted and smelled very fishy and old. I had the chicken with Gruyere cheese. And it was edible .
The best part of the dinner was the bread and the waiter Bill, he was fantastic . Way overpriced and blah food.

We had a six friends gathering for a delicious dinner. Three of us had the fillets which were cooked perfectly and the other three had the stuffed fish or salmon and everything was delicious. Our waiter Terry was excellent. He was very attentive and very courteous.

It was obvious the server was having a bad shift. She roiled her eyes when I was ordering, she was slightly condescending & short. I tried being overly nice, which seemed to annoy her more.
After all this she put our order in wrong, totally forgot my husband’s steak order & also totally forgot the string bean side order. Although his steak was good, I was finished /my meal by the time it arrived.
The good news is they didn’t charge us for the steak. We were surprised & grateful.
I understand if someone is having a bad day, but you can’t be in a customer service oriented business, if you can’t hide your negatively.

It must be a season where they do not have experience staff
No knowledge of what tequila they had carpaccio was pretty good but I asked no cables came with capers my wife’s caulk chop came out here to see it on one side not even cooked on the other and the Apple chutney sauce that they had on it might as well been Motts applesauce

This was a first time visit for a birthday dinner. Our server, Terry, was fantastic couldn’t have asked for better. The food was delicious from the bread, apps, dinner, straight through to the cheesecake that they bought for me for my birthday. We will definitely be back when in the area again.

Good food but be prepared to spend a lot per meal as everything is a la carte.
It was noisy. Be sure to request a quiet seating arrangement unless you're okay with the noise.
Wait staff was good. Nothing over the top which one might expect in a higher end steakhouse.
