My husband and I were vacationing on Maui and went to Duke’s for dinner. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We enjoyed a perfect view of the ocean.

Our waiter Jeremy took excellent care of us. The food was delicious, many fresh catch choices and preparations to choose. The pink snapper and swordfish were outstanding. Many thanks to Jeremy and the chef.

I have been to other Duke’s locations and the food here was not great. I expected more based on my other experiences. Good spot for a drink, view, and maybe an app.

We told our waitress we didn't eat pork and she immediately assumed we were vegetarian. We also asked about what meat is in the fried rice (since most if not all Hawaiian fried rice have pork) and she told us that there was no meat but would double check. Upon return she confirmed there was meat but was surprised she didn't know and almost sold us rice that would have pork. I had ordered to moco dish and asked for fried eggs. First time the eggs came out they were runny. 2nd time eggs came out they were still runny. Didnt say anything the 2nd time and gave the dish to my husband to finish.

We always love Dukes but this time around food was urs ok. Not like we remembered at all. Was kind of disappointed and at the end of it all I ended up getting extremely sick off the ribs. I’m not sure why but I got sick to my stomach and won’t be back for a long time do to getting sick. The mud pie was great! My husband had a great meal! He got the sea bass which was amazing. I think my ribs could have been under cooked. Also they were so salty!!! Oh well won’t be back for a while and it was sad to see that there food gas went down hill.

Love this place but I encourage you to ask for paper napkins. I’ve been here at least a dozen times for dinner and half of those times I’ve walked away covered in lint. I’ve never had that problem anywhere else and I eat out 5 days a week. They must use cheap linens. Went there for breakfast today and they had paper as the standard for breakfast so they got them!

Thanksgiving. Had to wait 15 minutes past reservations. Kitchen was backed up so had to wait for meal. Then they asked us to leave before one guest had finished their wine.

My wife and I have depend going to Duke's since it opened we are big Ts customers I have been going to Hula Grill and Leilani's for probably 30 years unfortunately Duke's is the worst it operates differently than the other locations the Thanksgiving plate was wildly overpriced it was worth maybe fifteen bucks at most it was puny and really not typical of TS restaurants we were very disappointed lunch cost us something like $70 for a small plate we could have done a lot better in other locations I don't believe we're going to go back

We had reservations at another restaurant but were informed by the hostess at Dukes Tuesday evening that we could have a choice of dark or white turkey meat on the Thanksgiving menu there. We then cancelled our other reservations and made them for Dukes. When we arrived we were told by our server that dark meat was not available. We asked to speak to the manager and after hearing our story, "Nick" said that he would serve us dark meat. When our meal arrived it was all white meat. We talked to him again and he apologized and corrected the order.

We really appreciated "Nick's" help and efforts to please us. We ended up with a great Thanksgiving meal at Dukes. Thanks for the extra efforts!!!

We were looking forward to our dinner. Made reservations and got seated in the back wall of booths right beside the busy kitchen entrance. We almost walked out after asking if we could move to one of the many empty tables out on the floor. The hostess denied our request as she said you can see the ocean from every table! After our waiter, Clay came to our table quickly, he saved the day for Dukes. Otherwise, we would have walked out. Clay was fabulously on every level and a valuable team member at Dukes. Too bad the 2 hostesses do not understand good customer relations and communication.

Place is super nice had a great table outside close to live music, waiter did a good job getting us started with drinks and bread. We order Onion Soup and a Caesar Salad to start the soup was not good at all very little flavor and the salad was 3 stars. Entrees Wife had the Banana Leaf Fish and I had the Chicken, my dish had no taste and was cold and my wife was to should have complained but for these prices should be right my wife was no fan of the fish. Are bill was at $100 bucks with no drinks we would never go back for entrees but to sit outside and have a drink and listen to live music probably OK. The place was full so not sure what I'm missing. Dukes was a loser for me....

Food was fine but the restaurant wasn’t as nice as we expected. We were there for anniversary brunch and at first got seated behind a huge pole. We moved closer to a view but it is set back fairly far from beach/water. Music was very loud in the restaurant and the meal was very fast - less than 35 minutes until we got the check. We would have enjoyed it more if we were staying at the hotel and prepped for a fast casual meal.
