  • Sunset at Dukes

    Arrived early enough to get a window seat overlooking the beach and pier, which was fantastic. Timing also had our dinner span the sunset hour which is also highly recommended. Our waiter was very helpful, pleasant and I would have to say that all of the Duke staff was great ... even providing driving hints on the exit. The main course was from the fresh fish of the day section and was as described, fresh, flavorful and well presented. Dessert was a PB cheesecake which the girls thought was very good! I would highly recommend heading to Dukes for something to eat (special dinner?) if you are in, or around Huntington Beach.

    debsdining
    Dined on 10/12/2014
    We were under the impression by looking on the web site that the lunch menu was available as well as brunch on Sundays. It was only available in the bar area. This was disappointing for us as most of us in the party of 5 had never been to Duke's but had heard of the great seafood . Lesson learned. Also, the price of $26.95 seemed steep for the brunch. The eggs Benedict was overcooked and had skimpy sauce with no extra to put on it. The waffles were dry and hard. I have been to better brunches for less money, but then they were not at a restaurant by the ocean. We enjoyed the Hawaiian singers and dancer that entertained for our 2 Birthday girls.

    This restaurant is on the beach, in a perfect location, looking out at the waves &/or sunset. The food could be anything but it is v v good. We had a great time eating at Duke's in Hawaii a number of years ago and this place has the same fun, active vibe. They couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Their kindness would have forgiven many failings but the food was absolutely terrific. A fun evening, although not in the islands-it can transport you there. Definitely better than I would expect. Not to be missed.

    I went to dukes originally because I live the dukes in Honolulu and this restaurant did not disappoint. Food was beyond wonderful and very reasonably priced for the quality. The view is great of the ocean and Huntington Beach pier. The service was incredible. I truly cannot find one thing to complain about. Since my first visit I have gone once more and going again next week. A truly great experience.

    I was planning a surprise dinner for my fiancé, it was so simple because the staff did everything in their power to secure the surprise! The manager made sure to have everyone seated ahead of time, they even had a note written to the hostess to say table for 2...even though we had 15 people waiting. He was so surprised he almost fainted. Aside from that the food and service was great and the waitress was friendly and attentive.

    Is right on the beach. Unobstructed ocean sunset. You think, "even if nothing else is good this wad worth it". But surprise, the opah is light and delicate, just like it should be. The preparations are pleasing to a wide pallet and the service is attentive without hovering. Enjoy that view you came in for, while you finish the hula pie.

I was a fine dining server in SF,, it takes a team of devoted quality staff to deliver a fine meal.... They were spot on, top drawer, the tower of Pisa! I was a first time diner at Duke's ... Not anymore! Honestly, I was expecting an average meal. The seafood was outstanding...and, Kevin explained, suggested and produced a winning dinner combination. Request Kevin, sit back and enjoy the view...Great service and food!

    The customer service at Duke's is very impressive. They follow up thoroughly by calling before a reservation and are very polite and professional on the phone. The only reason why I marked my experience a star less is because they wouldn't seat us until the "majority" of the party arrived. I was certain that the rest of my party would join, but they were running late so we wanted to be seated and have a drink while waiting. However, they said it was policy not to seat a table unless the majority arrived. Eventually the rest of the party arrived and I was finally seated after waiting 30 mins, but they missed out on a couple of cocktails they could've sold me as I waited.

    roast beef was tough, hot food was not hot, requested a table next to the window with the ocean view but was placed in the middle. for 27 bucks brunch i expected more food to choose but there was not even a shrimp cocktail that you can get from 15 bucks buffet..for sure the view has something to do with the price but i would rather eat at ruby's for a better view and a better food for my 27 bucks...

    We ate here after an afternoon at the beach and walking the pier. Our service was great and the food was super! The best part was our seating on the enclosed patio with large windows bringing In The ocean breeze. Then to put the icing on the cake, the beautiful sunset. The food was Hawaiian style and there were beautiful leis made from The most aromatic flowers.

    We had an excellent waiter (which we have had on previous occasions) and he was very attentive and helpful. He thoughtfully added the complimentary mud pie for dessert since we were celebrating our anniversary. The food and service are always the exceptional, and that is why Dukes is our favorite place for dining.

    This was a birthday celebration and the restaurant provided a very good experience. Our server, Jamie, was excellent. The kitchen was slow and we had long waits for food and beginning and in-between courses. Some 95% of the food has garlic in it, so if you don't like/can't eat garlic, your pickings are slim. Fortunately they did prepare some salmon with a non-garlic sauce for me and it was very good. While crowded, we never felt rushed. They remembered the birthday with a huge complimentary piece of cake. We had window seats and watched the volleyball players and bicyclists. Parking is valet and an extra $6. I would recommend Duke's for a special evening out and perhaps not on a crowded Saturday night. Reservations are a must.

    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.
