Duke's Beach House Maui
Outdoor DiningGreat patio seating a few feet from the ocean. Gentle Hawaiian music for entertainment.
Wonderful view for sunset!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA real treatWonderful location, wonderful food.
As with most nice restaurants on Maui, it was pretty pricey, but as we are small eaters we enjoyed the taster's plate (appetizer, half-size entree and desert) for $26 which was not bad considering the AWESOME (but small) filet, creme brûlée and small Caesar salad... but if you have a larger appetite, you'll probably spend twice that much.
We didn't eat at many places while in Hawaii, but of the few we went too, this one was really a treat. It was even more of a treat when I went out of my way to look this one up and found out it was walking distance from my hotel... along beautiful Ka'anapali Beach at sunset.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing, couldn't be better!Amazing views, watched the sunset (ideal time to go for great view and pics) and had the best food, drinks and dessert. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We had the best waiter so kind and thoughtful with all the kids. A++++ Next time we are in Maui we will be returning. Make sure you make reservations, because it does get busy. Thanks Dukes for great memories!! One of the highlights of our trip!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good andThe food was very good and the service from start to finish was excellent.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for a kingHad a hard time deciding what to order. It all seemed good. Had the Kabobs....chicken, beef, pineapple and Maui onions were outstanding. Others had Pork Shanks which fell off the bone, and Swordfish which was very tasty. Highly recommend Dukes.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for familiesWe brought our 16 month old - when he'd had enough of sitting at the table there was plenty of fun things to walk around and look at. The resort that the restaurant is in is quite stunning. Food was great!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst night in Maui DinnerTerrific fish special and ribs. Wonderful Hula pie for dessert. Very nice service. Food was hot and promptly delivered5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOur last night in HawaiiThis meal turned a sad night into a great night. It was our last night on Maui before we had to return home to Seattle, and we all had a wonderful time and a fantastic meal. We will be back on our next trip.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTwo Locations in OneWe had booked the dining room for this trip as it was our anniversary and we wanted something a little more than the outdoor seating and menu. We we not dissapointed. The food was excellent and the filet i had cooked perfectly. We were seated in a table close to the bar so there was quite a bit of foot traffic going past us on the way to the outside dining room, but we didn't really mind a whole lot. What really made this a great experience was the server. He was more than patient and very sweet to our 2 year old daughter who just didn't want to sit still. We appreciated him so very much! We will definately go back.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!We had a group of 8 and the atmosphere and food were amazing! Perfect for a business dinner! Thanks!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining with a great View MauiAlways friendly service. Great selection of Fresh fish daily specials prepared 3 different ways.
Don't forget to try my favorite dessert, the Hula Pie.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the most magical eveningWe had the most magical evening here. Had ocean front seating for cocktails and stayed at same table for dinner. We had two fish dishes, the banana leaf & mahi mahi macadamia nut. Hula pie was great for dessert. We had a friendly and personable waitress who was very attentive. The live hula dancer & ukelae players topped off the evening with the live entertainment. And a 10min walk back to our hotel!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice location, good fish dinners,Nice location, good fish dinners, good for families4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent RecoveryPoor initial seating experience based on request made through Open Table a week in advance. Manager intervened and made a great recovery. Service after seating was exceptional. All staff other than hostess and seater were exceptionally service oriented. We will return on next visit to Maui.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall experience was wonderful,Overall experience was wonderful, and would certainly return this restaurant (as well as recommend to others). The food was superb (a great dish is the seafood risotto), and the hula pie for dessert is a must!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA++++Food was over the top. Craig our server was fantastic.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a great evening forThis was a great evening for us. It was the wife's birthday and she really enjoyed everything about Dukes. We started out at the bar first, then to our table. The wait staff was exceptional and the food outstanding. Its nice to go to a restaurant and have not one thing to complain about, or to even say they could have done that better, not here, it was all that perfect!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our seventhWe celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary on April 14 2013. Reservations were at 6:00 p.m. for us and our two children, boys, ages four and six. We found Duke's was a great place for the occasion and was kid-friendly enough. We had not planned to dine alone that night because of babysitting charges in Maui, so bringing the children was a necessity. The food was very good, the staff was friendly and the price was about average for Maui restaurants. We had a very good meal and were treated well. I would recommend it for any special occasion.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGo to DukesGreat place in new resort. Fish was wonderfully prepared and presented. Wait staff very helpful and checked on us frequently. Mai Tais with fresh guava were great4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome last night on theAwesome last night on the Island with my Family ...Thank you4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best ValueDuke’s in Kaanapali has a menu for everyone, even a vegetarian dish. Both self park and valet park is free, but remember to tip the valet. This a good place to watch the sunset, but make reservations early. We had a 6PM reservation and our booth was immediately available. The booth was great for conversation, put request outside front if you wish to watch the sunset. The server, Derek from California, was friendly and attentive. As usual we split a pupu, lobster bisque, and Rocket salad. My wife selected the Seafood risotto. It consisted of every fish on the menu, including the fishes of the day. It was an outstanding dish. I opted for a dish I never had, the Pork Shank. It was fall off the bone tender that had been braised 24 hour4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely deliciousNice setting, friendly and efficient staff (our waitress was super) and the food was simply delicious
We had three different fish dishes and one steak dish - all four agreed it was the best meal in a long time and in the case of the mahi mahi - the best ever preparation. In each case the common thread was the unique combination of flavors. We are gong back ASAP4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat viewsThe service was great. Our waiter was attentive. Views are awesome. Our food was ok. Kids meals are very small proportions. My pork shank fell off the bone and was flavorful, but the BBQ sauce it was serviced with was watered down and flavorless. The mashed potatoes had the texure of boxed potatoes. The grilled vegs were good. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly, but again the mashed looked, tasted and had the texure of boxed. He wouldn't even eat them. His meal came with corn (pretty unimpressive given his meal was $30+). My husband had a martini - which was good. My draft was good. The kids (boys young boys) were able to run around before/after our meal on the beach front. Great place to watch the sunset.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOur 1st time at Duke's was great!We went to Duke's Besch House/ Maui for the first time with a party of 6. The food was good, the service was excellent and the view was very good.

Our dinner was spectacular - fresh, delicious entrées - excellent service. Our waiter was attentive and advised us well. We loved the food and the view so much that we returned for lunch twice. The second lunch we brought another family - our children couldn't wait to go back - they enjoyed their food and of course the view. We will definitely return.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDerrin our server was fabulous.Derrin our server was fabulous.

They now are calling it one of their favorite restaurants, too?3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDukes is in a great locationDukes is in a great location on the beach, sunsets are a treat! Local seafood is a great dinner choice, very fresh, nice preparations and nice presentations, and the specials are noteworthy. The best calamari on the island and among the best anywhere! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hula Pie is a must for desert. We were there on a cool night and the roll-down shades provided ample protection, so don't be deterred if the weather is less than Maui-gorgeous. Reservations are a must, particularly if you want to be there for sunset.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafoodAlways a pleasure to eat at Dukes on Maui. The local seafood choices are always right out of the ocean,ie fresh, fresh, fresh. Restaurant is right on he beach with gorgeous sunset views. However, the night we dined it was raining, but they are well protected with roll down shades. Didn't dampen our spirits!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDukes is a place that is requiredDukes is a place that is required to go while on the islands. Food is always great as is the service. I wish they had the salad bar as they do on Oahu and Kauai but still great.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)We asked for an outstanding table to show off the view to a dear friend who was visiting for the first time on Maui and we were not disappointed. Food and view were great. The tasty menu is a great, well priced option, though some might have been disappointed with serving sizes, we were not.2/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful setting and welcomingBeautiful setting and welcoming servers.

Our server encouraged us to try the fish sandwich and she was right. Delicious fish, interesting greens for a crunchy topping. While not inexpensive, I felt the lunch was well worth it. Have paid about the same for much less on Maui.12/14/2012 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, serviceFood was delicious, service above par. Will return.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
