    We waited for a table by the window and it was worth the wait. Great view, great service! I thought the portion sizes, for the price, were rather small, though I understand one is paying for the view. The noise level was such that it was nearly impossible to speak and my throat was soar from shouting all night. Finding a way to absorb sound in the room would be a great way to improve the ambience.

    Located right at the peir in HB. The location, the food, the service. Might not be the fanciest place around but it would be suitable for a very nice family night out or date night. The bar is usually fun place also. It's just hard to beat dukes. If you have never been I would recommend adding this to your todo list while traveling through Huntington.

    We had an exceptional evening celebrating my adult son's birthday. Everyone at Duke's was friendly and helpful, from the hostess when we arrived, the bar staff, and our waitress. I included a note on my online reservation that we were celebrating his birthday. I never had to mention it at Duke's, making the delivery of a serving of hula pie (complimentary :-) I might add) a complete and special surprise to him. Our food (fish and steak) was excellent. The view of Huntington Beach and the pier at sunset was wonderful. I love Duke's!!

    The food was not what I expected. The fish was way overcooked and dry. My wife had two bites and did not finish the meal. The rice tasted as if it just came out of a box. The dinning room where we were seated was too loud for my taste. We were unable to have a conversation at a normal tone due to the excessive noise.

    We celebrated a birthday lunch, and enjoyed the tasty and flavorful Ono and Opah fish. The rice and slaw were both very good. For dessert, I was presented with the Hula pie, consisting of ice cream and chocolate fudge and nuts. Yummy! All the staff are very caring and friendly, and really seem to want you to have a good time at Duke's. The view of the Huntington Beach and the pier were beautiful, outside the huge windows of the restaurant. Will go back for great food and service again soon!

    We encountered a couple of friends while walking inside the restaurant. Duke's was able to accommodate a last minute addition of two people to our party of 4 on a Thursday night for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their meal, be it steak or fresh fish (cooked in any one of 4-5 selections.) A starter is almost a meal in and of itself. 5 of us shared one dessert and it was quite sufficient (and delicious.) Wait staff provided excellent service with meal suggestions and refills.

    I made a reservation for 2, asked for oceanside or oceanview. We got there and waited an extra 40 minutes for our table that was on the inside of the outside patio, so we were looking at people not the ocean. So now we missed the sunset because of the wait. There were many other tables but they were reserved for others???. Our fish was very greasy, the rice was like fast food and also greasy. It was uncomfortably hot in the restaurant . We would rather have had a window table with the ocean view like requested for my husbands birthday and not the obnoxiously big piece of icecream cake that we would not eat anyway.

    I requested a seat with a view if possible and they complied. It was great! We were seated on the patio. Our I think our server had other tables in side making her less attentive to the outside tables than she should have been. She would disappear for long periods of time before she would Reappear with whatever we had requested. She was very nice and our orders were put in correctly but Ice teas and waters were not refilled timely. This is something I expect in a more expensive establishment. Giving her the benefit of the doubt and assuming that the restaurant may have given her too many tables she was extremely friendly and knew the menu very well. Our food was excellent! The fish was tender and the drinks from the bar were delish!

    Six of us have all been to many Dukes (and their Company Restaurants) from California to Hawaii, but this was a very disappointing and expensive adventure! The front desk and our server was very pleasant but the dining experience was not. Our iced tea arrived with 3-4 almost melted ice cubes and more ice was too late to remedy the problem because it was a watered down version of a drink. The rolls were hard and dry. The Ono was very tough and overcooked and the rice was dry and unappetizing. The petit filet was tough even though it was ordered medium rare though it came out overcooked. The Barramundi was bland and not as flaky. I love this chain and wish I could have been more positive about our meal. This is meant to be helpful.

    We requested a table near the window which offered a beautiful scenic dinner with the beach and waves! There were 4 in our party and we each ordered something different and all RAVED about our meals, i.e., Ribeye, Salmon, Ahi Tuna, Surf & Turf (Ribeye and Lobster Tail). We ordered two salads to share and they brought them on 4 plates - so very nice! We also shared two appetizers which were wonderful! Our waiter was fantastic; not pushy and always with a smile! I would recommend this restaurant any time! Enjoy...

    We made reservations for lunch because we knew there would be a crowd to see the huge surf. Went to Duke ' s because of the best view of the pier and beach. We were not disappointed. Got a seat next to the window, had a terrific lunch, and our waiter told us about his surfing that morning. The crab and macadamia nut won tons are my favorite. My husband had excellent a hi and we both had a wonderful lunch.

    We hadn't been to Dukes for a couple years, and after being there on 8/24 evening, we wondered why we had waited so long. My wife had salmon and I had opa both with the parmesan crust. Both were superb. Our server was excellent - very personable and knowledgeable. Although the restaurant was quite busy, the food was prepared and served fairly quickly. This was an anniversary dinner and along with the sunset, we were glad we chose Duke's.

    Visited Duke's for my birthday while vacationing in Huntington Beach. My expectations were high, as we had dinner at the Kauai location several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed. The restaurant itself was chaotic and looked a little tired and could use some updating. My wife and I ordered fish, which was very good. My daughter had a steak medium, but literally like shoe leather. Our waiter was nice and efficient. Overall Duke's was good (don't order the steak), but it was no way memorable.

    For a restaurant on the beach it is wonderful with some great views of the ocean and HB pier. The food is fun, fresh and to the point. The food was delivered hot and tasty and we had a wonderful waiter who was very attentive. All in all it is a nice spot to go and have some Poki Tacos for sure. Try the fish and the different ways it is prepared. The specialty drinks were a little lacking in flavor and imagination but not something to hold us up from going there again. Just go with what you know. Still a positive experience and nice place to eat Try it and after take a nice walk on the pier.
