    In a beautiful setting, with attentive and cheerful service, Duke's in Lahaina has the potential to be much better. The food was disappointing, prepared in advance and reheated (or so it seemed), the "fresh fish" was overdone and the taste was just OK. Drinks were satisfactory overall: excellent daiquiri, fair vodka cranberry lemonade.

    Construction going on during dinner hous...really? Mai Tai was flavorless with little alcohol. My "fresh". Banana leaf steamed fish was flavorless, gray and tough for fish. What a bust. I would have asked for the manager but if you don't know not to have banging and sawing associated with construction during dinner hous....what's the point. What a bust. My suggestion, walk by look at the beautiful setting and then keep walking.

    Whether it's a special occasion or we are showing off our home to visitors or we just deserve a night out...we always go to Duke's and are never disappointed. ( although we were sorry that you stopped having the early bird tasting menu...it was a wonderful option for us and we miss it!!) Our server this particular night was Karen, and she was the best. Efficient, pleasant, helpful and a great sense of humor. It was a birthday for us, so she made sure we had a Hula Pie!!!

    This Dukes is located on a resort and does not have parking (or drop-off) up close. There is plenty of self-parking but give yourself 5 to 10 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the restaurant. Ocean views were terrific...we definitely enjoyed the sunset. With our earlier sunset dining there were plenty of families dining together and the overall noise level of the restaurant was kid friendly!

    Our server, Grayson, was excellent. Personable and always seemed to arrive at the right moment. Food was good - we especially loved the calamari appetizer, best hula pie on the island, and the creme brûlée pots were creamy with the right amount of burnt sugar. Fish obviously fresh with good presentation - just slightly overcooked. The seafood risotto was a bit of a miss for me (too much garlic) - but not enough to dissuade us from coming again. Overall, a fine experience. Some of the most attentive waitstaff during our ten days on the island.

    I have been a long-time customer of Duke's in Kauai so while in Maui I decided to try Duke's in Maui in 2012. I only rated my dinner a 5 of 10. I decided to give them a second chance in 2014 and had a 10 meal and service. I felt like a special guest when requesting a change in location of our table. We had the encrusted Opa and it was excellent, exceeded expectation. Vegetables were crisp and tasty. My wife loved the onion soup. Keg provided Simi Cabernet was a disappointment. I can now recommend Duke's in Maui just like Duke's in Kauai.

    Another restaurant that forgot to check us in. This place is tasty, clean, and fun for couples. My husband had a steak and it was cooked to perfection. I had the baked mahi mahi and it was a feast of deliciousness. Even their rice on the plate was wonderful. If you are in the area and want a fine, (expensive as well) meal...this is the place. It is well worth the cost.

    We have had lunch at dukes before but never dinner. Didn't realize dinner was more of a fancy menu. We were very impressed with the food. The seared ahi was cooked perfectly and the macnut crusted seasonal fish has perfect flavor. I would recommend both dishes. The hula pie for dessert is a must. The restaurant has a nice patio and good views of the sunset.

    It was our last night on Maui and wanted to have a special dinner. We have eaten in many restaurants on Maui but hadn't tried Duke's, although we'd been to the one in Honolulu. First, our table was ready when we arrived and we were shown to a table at the edge of the dining area overlooking the grounds. The food was delicious - best we had in our 2-week stay. Our waitress was very nice and brought out everything in a timely manner. All in all, a really great evening of dining on Maui! We'll definitely go back.

    The food ... was fresh, delicious and artful plated. Our party of four shared several appetizers including the poke, coconut shrimp and the lobster coconut milk soup (which I felt was too salty, but the rest our party didn't think so). Each couple shared an entrée; each delicious fish dinners. The server was super knowledgable and professional and friendly.

    My husband and I had the best evening and dinner here and our favorite restaurant of the week! We had wonderful service, the ambience with a view of the ocean with open windows and ocean breezes, you can't beat. I had the Mango BBQ ribs and they were outstanding. My husband had the seafood risotto and one of the best risotto dishes he has had. We had the trio of creme brulle for dessert. WE like the vanilla tahitian flavor the best. So reasonably priced compared to other high end Kapalua restaurants!! We can't wait to go back several times next year!

    Once again, Duke's hit it out of the park! Had a special family celebration and everyone, from the 2 year old to the adults, enjoyed the food, ambiance, and service. Consideration was given to the kids, including a special sparkling drink in a flute for the champagne toast, and the celebratory dessert capped off a delicious dinner of succulent fish (we couldn't pick a favorite between the mac encrusted, the banana leaf steamed, the Duke's favorite, and the special fish pairing). Even the pickiest eater of the group devoured the calamari! Frank, our waiter, was outstanding and all the staff made us feel welcome and valued. Highly recommend to anyone in the area!
