    Dined on 3/7/2014
    The first thing I thought was, "Why did I even need a reservation???" Very casual situation, dive-like. Good food and service, but the atmosphere was awful. I'm sure the extremely loud NYU students were having a blast, but for the rest of us, it made for a very uneasy meal. Ironically, the front bar area was more tame than the actual dining room.

    We had a large group, and we asked for our table to be moved because of lack of space at the original table. The staff was very accommodating and made sure that we were given more space. Unfortunately, another group of diners was not being cooperative about moving their table down a few feet to make room for us. Our group loved the food and ambiance, and many of us decided that we want to come back during the week to watch the games and try other dishes on the menu!

    It's perfect for a quick non expensive bite. Slightly better than bar food, but I mean that in a good way. Lots of choices to pick from and happy hour is before 7PM. Half off all cocktails and appetizers. Service was great and cocktails were strong.

    Duke's is our go-to sports bar in Manhattan. The food is good, the service attentive and they are always accommodating to patrons who want to see their favorite team on one of the many TV screens. They have big tables for larger groups in one of the rooms. It's always a fun time at Duke's -- well, at least if your team is not getting beat!

  • OK food, but terrible service
    sheenadeeVIP
    Dined on 11/9/2013
    Although there were a number of empty tables around us, we had to flag down our waitress for EVERY single request. It's like she completely forgot we were there (and we were a party of 9 celebrating a birthday). She'd bring over a pitcher of beer, but no glasses. Food, but no utensils. She didn't clear plates when they'd been sitting there for over 15 minutes. After our appetizers were eaten, and empty plates sitting there for a while, we finally flagged her down to order and she said 'oh, you want food?'. What?! No, 9 of us were going to eat these three appetizers... Really? The restaurant also ran out of an entree which 4 of us had ordered, which we didn't find out for 5-10 minutes. Save your time and go to Big Daddy's instead.

    we arrived with a group of 32 students and the staff at dukes were just great with us. the service was fantastic, friendly and professional. considering the size of the group the food came out together and on time. food quality was awesome and the portion sizes as always in the USA huge!!!! however the prices weren't inflated as often experienced in nyc. Atmosphere was vibrant and energetic and the staff completed the overall experience. we'll definitely make dukes a regular stop on our annual school trip to the big Apple. Thanks dukes.

    I've dined often at Duke's - Gramercy Park. It's a scruffy, sometimes noisy sports bar, but I thought that its sandwiches were exceptional. Unfortunately, my past several visits didn't live up to my recollection. Nothing seems different, but to my taste the sandwiches have lost something I can't identify. At my most recent lunch, the manager was loudly upbraiding the staff for its laziness. Maybe the problem is that no one cares these days -- assuming anyone ever did.

    This was my first time at Duke's with a group of coworkers and from drinks to food to service, it was a great experience. We had the mac & cheese and guacamole for app's, then we picked on jambalaya, red snapper, burger and chicken as the main dishes. All were great and the drinks were even better! I had their version of a long island iced tea and ooh baby I totally felt it going down! They definitely don't skimp on their drinks! The atmosphere was fun with rounds of bingo (your table gets free shots if you win) and there were trivial pursuit cards at every table. All in all a great experience and I would highly recommend to all!

    Went early evening this past Friday night. I had shrimp po-poy and it was very good. It was anice size portion and cooked just about perfect. My hubby had one of their hamburgers. His too was cooked just as he ordered and it was a very large portion. He had a beer and I had water. With a buy one get one coupon it was a very good deal. Would like to go back to try what appeared to be some very interesting drink specials. Lots to look at on the walls.

    I met a friend after work for some drinks and a casual dinner. We were excited to learn that all appetizers were half price from 5-7 on weekdays, and ordered a few to share. We also each had a Duke-a-rite, which were on special on Thursday for $5 each. Everything was delicious and filling! A fun place to meet with friends!

    We went with a group of 8 for a work 'bonding' dinner. It was GREAT! All the food was wonderful, price performer for all AND the service was outstanding. The overhead fan and A/C was bothering us - and the staff took care of it RIGHT AWAY. And we got to watch all of the important GAMES going on at the moment... Highly recommend - but be ready for the noise level and (slight) frat boy scene.

    Used to dine at Duke's often. Am going less and less. The food is pretty good for a scruffy sports bar, but the service is increasingly negligent. Waited a long time to be seated before anyone even acknowledged my presence. Then my server took forever to bother taking my order. When my food didn't come and didn't come and didn't come, I tried to attract the server's attention to get a check (for a drink) and to leave without eating. The server never looked at me. I finally stood up next to the table to attract some attention. When someone finally noticed me standing, my food was delivered. And all the while, the room was less than one-quarter full. I won't return in a hurry.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 6/15/2012
    We came as a group as usual, for at least the forth or more times. We have always enjoyed ourselves with a great time. As usual, we only order drinks at happy hour and ½ price appetizers only, which the bill was never too costly. Therefore that’s the only reason why we go to Dukes. We are not cheap people, but our bill was three times what we usually pay – we even ordered less than usual. The high bill scratch out our joy unexpectently – as mentioned we only go for the ½ price appetizers, now full cost. It was my birthday and I was very disappointed at the end of the evening seeing the over sized bill. We as a group are probubly done with Dukes.
