Please remind your servers that folks are waiting for their meals. When I see 4 male servers standing around enjoying themselves when I don’t even have my beverage order, my opinion of the entire experience becomes jaded. They need to learn how to anticipate guest needs and act accordingly

I requested window seat since we were celebrating my husband’s birthday and they gave us a great table with a view! The food was really good and the other highlight of the night was the amazing dessert they brought for his bday, not only was it delicious, it was a really good portion and four of us absolutely enjoyed it! Service was great too!

Everything was simply delicious. The waiter was very attentive and helped us to make a terrific choice. We wanted to combine two different entrees and he had them split exactly right. Having the beach out the window and a lovely atmosphere inside was lovely

We had eaten at the Dukes in Waikiki and decided to try out the one in Huntington Beach while visiting for my daughters college graduation. It was outstanding! The fish and chips were moist and flaky and we were even given a free dessert to celebrate the graduation. Great staff and atmosphere!

We have been here many times and always have a wonderful experience.
My husband had the seafood salad with fresh crab & shrimp. I had fish tacos, the sauce inside of the tortillas was very spicy, served with guacamole & hot salsa on the side. My friend had the shredded pork sandwich with slaw & sweet potato fries.
The servers have been consistently helpful, making sure sure we are happy with the meal and good with suggestions.

Had only been to Dukes for dinner. Tried it for a bridal luncheon. I initially wanted the res for 1p, but 11a was the only opening.
That turned out to be better. We had time to interact when it was less crowded. It got crazy busy starting noon, and louder.
Lunch menu was great, our server was very accommodating, even offering to split checks with such a large group. Would definitely try an early res again.

The food, view, and service were great. However, the noise level was so loud that we could hardly hear each other talk. We went for a family reunion and birthday celebration, but could only hear the person sitting next to us because of so many people talking loud. Won't go back there.

I am a complete sucker for a great view. We requested an ocean view table and were will to wait for it and we loved it.

Food is Workman-like. Big portions. It’s fine but I love the ocean in real time. The staff is young, lovely and eager - our waitress seemed a bit overwhelmed but we were in no rush

Went to Duke’s for Mother’s Day and had a wonderful dinner, plus the Hula Pie the four of us shared for dessert - yum! La Crema Pinot noir was an excellent choice to accompany all of the dishes.

Very corporate- limited options on menu, some portions small for price, prime rib had no flavor, sides were all bad. Cocktails were bad- not made according to what was listed on menu. Cold mashed potatoes and over cooked broccolini and asparagus. Our server was really nice and provided good service, but we won’t go back. The place is beautiful, but they need to step up the food quality and presentation to justify those prices

We had a good window seat. 5 of us. Mother’s Day. The surver was witty and fun, and together. The food was timely and excellent, but then again, it truly always is. Duke’s is casual fine dinning at bill time, however the experience all around the table, on Mother’s Day, and always, is Mahalo.

My daughter asked where I'd like to celebrate Mother's Day, I responded Duke's. We've been to Duke's numerous times, always a treat. The price is moderate as compared with other brunches, the food is plentiful, fresh, well prepared, excellent overall. The wait staff was extremely attentive as always.
I highly recommend Duke's for brunch or any occasion. Wonderful food, great service, great location.

Love this place! Best view in Huntington Beach and great food too. Brunch shuts down at 3:00 though so if you like a leisurely meal I wouldn’t recommend a reservation past 1:00. They do keep full until the end but wraps up pretty quickly. Service is great, very attentive too. If you like Hawaiian food, you’ll love this place!

Duke's is always a treat! The Sunday brunch buffet is wonderful with a wide variety of choices.
The service is attentive, and the HB pier and beach view is awesome! We also enjoy the Hawaiian entertainment by Pat and his lovely hula dancer. The local atmosphere here is tropical and laid back.
A little bit of paradise in Huntington Beach! My family loves Duke's for special occasions and holidays.

Food was great, as always. Unfortunately we did not have an ocean view which was requested at the time of booking so without the view, the food seems expensive. Next time I will insist on a table with a view, that is one of the main reasons we go there.

My husband took me to Duke's for an early Mother's Day dinner. We had such a wonderful evening. We were seated right away and had the most delightful service provided by Suzanne who saw to our every request. From the appetizers to dessert, each dish was better than the one before it. We highly recommend the filet mignon and lobster tail. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. We will be coming back often.

Wonderful service! The hosts and servers were great! The food was not good. We had a couple of the fresh fish options. They were not nearly as tasty as we hoped and didn’t taste so fresh. The poke tacos were decent. My rocket salad was bland. Even my drinks were not good. I had 3 different cocktails. The coconut mojito was watered down. The fancy Bloody Mary did not have much flavor. Even the mai Thai was a disappointment.
