Hostesses were very friendy! Waitress was wonderful and fun! All the restaurant staff was great! Food excellent! Wine excellent! Only problem I see is ALOT of parents with children must stay at this hotel because the restaurant was full of children and very noisy! I would suggest going to this restaurant for lunch or happy hour although I don’t know for sure it would be any less chaotic! I was very glad I was not staying at this hotel because I’m sure the pool area was a nghtmare!

We were first greeted by one of the Managers., very classy.

Our server John Rey was wonderful. 5 star service. We come to the location every time we’re on Maui.

The ambiance is lovely, we have dined here before. This time we sat at the bar for a cocktail and the bartender was very uninspired by his work. Our server seemed lovely but her laugh was very hollow. Last year the food was excellent this year it was at best average. We were really looking forward to an enjoyable experience and were totally disappointed.

Everything about Duke’s was perfect!! We had a fabulous table in front so we could watch another amazing Maui sunset. The food was delicious. I had the Macadamia nut crusted Ono and my daughter the crab cakes. I would highly recommend Duke’s when visiting Maui.

Great oceanside restaurant with local seafood offerings and other traditional fare. Live music (on some nights) and good atmosphere. Even though it is a "chain" restaurant typically found near resorts, Duke's actually has old ties to the islands and surf culture with a focus on sustainable seafood. It is a little pricier compared to some smaller restaurants & cafe's, but it comes with great service and atmosphere.

Such a beautiful venue. We arrived early and were able to sit at our table to watch the sun go down. The friendly waiters and staff were not at all pushy and gave us time to decide on our order. So relaxing to sit in comfort under the ceiling fan and enjoy the pleasure of outdoor dining. A perfect last evening dinner for my first holiday on Maui. I had the most amazing seafood risotto, so fresh and delicious, topped off with two glasses of sparkling rose, my idea of heaven!

Always a good experience. We were celebrating a birthday and casually mentioned it to our server who at the end of the meal brought a huge slice of Hula Pie to celebrate. Great service and the lobster was outstanding.

I have to say that the other lower reviews almost stopped us from going here on our anniversary dinner. We are so glad we went. The service and food was amazing and they knew it was our anniversary so they setup a cute table with the perfect view for us. The drinks were fun and D’Lish! The sunset from our table was unforgettable as was the time with my beautiful wife of 30yrs. Cost was not over the top but as you would expect for dinner and drinks in Maui.

My wife and I had a very pleasant experience at Duke’s. We were seated promptly at a quiet table on the patio. Our server Chloe was exceptional and made very good recommendations. She was very attentive. The food was excellent and the Hula pie was a real treat. The price was right.
I would recommend this restaurant strongly and we will go back there.

Terrible service. Server disappeared for long periods of time. Other servers seemed much more attentive. Ordered steak well done - I know - but they didn't get it right even after sending it back once
Restaurant was stand up because they took it off the bill. But terrible service!!!

The food was great (as always), the atmosphere was outstanding! Our waiter, Bula, was great and I would have given him five (or even six) stars. However, one of the other guys (wears glasses with a strap) had an attitude that wasn't exactly what we'd expect from Duke's. One of the members our party ordered a steak, and didn't have a knife. When he requested a steak knife, it was as if we ruined this other guy's day...it didn't get any better when one of other friends asked for a spoon! I wanted to say that we asked for cutlery, not attitude, but just let it slide. We love Duke's, and will definitely be back.

Disappointed. Looking for a romantic ambience and scored a big zero. Dressed nice and looking forward to a romantic dinner and ended up getting stuck at the far end of the restaurant bordering the bar area As far away from the nice music as you could be.

The food was good enough but the portion size was pathetically small. I don’t recommend the bland onion soup with the untoasted bread.

Service was good.

Skipped dessert because the bar crowd was just over our shoulder.

I had given up on Dukes in Huntington Beach, and Maui experience was even worse. I’m done with Dukes.
