    This is our usual go to spot when we come to Oahu. We were celebrating our anniversary but we don’t make it a big deal. It’s just for us. We went and I was looking forward to the add-on salad bar not realizing that Thursdays you could not do that because of their prime rib buffet. Not something I was mad at just a little disappointed. I understand why they couldn’t do it because people would just grab all types of stuff that wouldn’t necessarily come with the salad bar. Server was super cool and got me some Mac salad which is what I was really looking forward to. My fiancé is garlic intolerant and they accommodate her but they went to the extreme and the food was pretty bland. Not that I blame them. I had the ribs which were normally good but the second part was really tough. We did have the hula pie which we always enjoy. We will definitely be coming back we love Dukes the ambience is fantastic and it’s right on the beach. Just did not have a great experience the last time we were there.

    Overall a little disappointed. Nice view but that was about it. Did not realize it was only a Breakfast buffet. Which was just ok, nothing special and most of the food was cold. Waitress took our order for an omelette, didn’t write it down and never put it in so we paid over $50 (with tip) for cold eggs and a fruit bar. Nothing but an over hyped tourist trap. We haven’t been for any other time (lunch or dinner) but would definitely not recommend. There has to be other restaurants with views just as good and decent food/service.

    Finally got to go to this Waikiki icon after years of watching it from the beach and I can say it lived up to the hype. The food and atmosphere both are amazing and our server did an amazing job of making us feel welcomed.

    We were completely unimpressed with Duke’s. Our expectations were that we were going to eat at the World Famous Duke’s. The breakfast choices were unimaginative and boring. Waitresses continuously dropped silverware, everything was loud and distracting. My overall impression; go to Denny’s. Much better choices and you’ll save a lot of money. Duke’s is a flash and zero substance!

    Duke's was the perfect ambiance and the food was delicious! The crab wontons were simply divine. I'll be dreaming about them long after our vacation. The ahi and bbq ribs were both amazing. The server was the best we had throughout our entire stay on Waikiki. We loved Duke's!

    The food is always consistently good, and our service from Allen was phenomenal. The Macadamia crusted fresh fish specialty (in this case Mahi) was incredibly moist and flavorful. The only problem with Dukes is the reservation system. We made open table reservations more than 4 weeks in advance and could only get a 5pm or 845pm time, and checked repeatedly over those 4 weeks to modify the time. Contacted the desk to see if there was a glich, and they said that they only take x number of open table reservations to allow for walk ups, and that we should check in early to enter the queue. For an 845 reservation we checked in before 7pm, and still did not get seated until 830, which was greater than the walk up quoted time of about an hour, and was in the back due to just requesting 1st available. Dukes should be able to honor reservations for those able to plan ahead, and has plenty of walk ups to fill any tables for no-shows. Their model is frustrating and in unequitable for those that plan ahead, otherwise it would be 5 stars across the board.

    Was there for my birthday and anniversary combo. I noted it in reservation and at front desk. Wasn’t acknowledged, which is fine. But the food for the price is not matched. The quality is more along the lines of any food chain. The prices your paying should be much better. Ate at many restaurants while visiting and this was only one I was t huge fan of.

    We've eaten here several times over the years, couldn't get a reservation last September, but were happy to get one this time. We were mostly disappointed. Our food was good, our server was nice and efficient (but clearly overwhelmed with the number of tables she was assigned). Even though we had a reservation, and got there a few minutes early to check in, we were kept waiting for about 15 minutes. Once we were seated, we were given water right away, but it was at least 20 minutes before we could even order drinks. Once the orders were in, things happened in a more normal pace. The singer they had that night was terrible and very loud. The whole experience was not what I expected for our last night in Waikiki. Based on this experience alone, I wouldn't be in a hurry to return or recommend.

    Service was very poor, when our mains arrived the server literally threw the plates on the table and said "fish tacos" and ran away without asking if anything was needed- we would have liked some salt & pepper and ketchup. No one checked on us, we had to wave down a server to get ketchup, which arrived when we were done our meals. Food was OK, nothing special...hyped up because of the name and location.

    You know this place is popular when there are people waiting to get in at 9 PM and all the chain restaurants on the way are mostly empty. The atmosphere is great, if not a bit noisy if you aren’t seated near the outside. The food was very good, including the prime rib. The salad bar has some interesting selections but you might want to save some room for dessert (the entree also came with broccolini despite not being on the menu). The hula pie is excellent but is enormous, so plan to share with two or more people. I was told the mai tais were some of the best on the island, and I was talked into upgrading to the “vintage” version with premium spirits for $2 more. The waiter was right that it was smoother and less sweet than others I’ve had, but this one had a strange finish in my mouth that reminded me of cough syrup. Might be best to skip that upgrade.
