We’re from out-of-town and every time we visit our son in Seattle we dine at Duke’s. Consistently good food.

The chowder won the night. We had both the traditional and lobster chowders, and they were great. Otherwise, a solid seafood meal that you pay handsomely for, more to have the comfort that it’s sustainably raised than to have a taste experience that is unique. Totally solid meal.

Our food was cooked perfectly and our waiter, Jamie, was the best. I would request one of his tables for any return visits. My conclusion at the end our dining experience was that we need to come to Duke's more often.

We have dined at Duke’s on the patio in good weather, but never inside. It was pleasant and a cozy atmosphere to be inside on a wintry Valentine’s Day. The food was very good, our waitress excellent. Overall a wonderful evening.

As always, the ambiance and service at Duke’s Green Lake were outstanding, as were the food presentation and portion amounts. However, for the price of our meals, esepecially considering we went at lunchtime, the quality of the food was, at best, just okay. Both meals were bland, and definitely not worth the cost. Because of this meal, we are considering not returning to Duke’s. This would be sad because we have been enjoying Duke’s since we moved here, and it is within walking distance for us...and the quality of the food has been very good, therefore enabling us to rationalize the high price. As the early Stones sang, “This could be the last time...I don’t know.”

The food is very ordinary. Caesar salad was very bland and salmon overcooked and overpriced. $200 for 3 people and only 2 glasses of wine. Sevice was excellent.

This is the place we go when we want the highest quality food, great service and no disappointments. If you don't believe me about the quality of the food prepared at Duke's, pick up a copy of their "As Wild as it Gets" Cookbook and see for yourself!

I have had 2 great experiences at Duke's, one for happy hour burger on the deck last summer and one more recently for dinner. Both were great. The burgers are scrumptious and my crab-stuffed blackened cob was a taste delight.

I consider us regulars at Duke's, we know a good portion of the menu by heart, and definitely the entirety of the dessert menu. My favorites include all the chowders (especially the NxNW), the fish tacos, fish and chips, and the Prawns Del Cabo Wabo. Service is steadily in the 4-5 star range. The best anecdote is the time when my waiter remembered the drink I liked the time before even though I myself coult not remember exactly. Most recently, we went on a night when Duke's had a musician perform holiday-themed blues/jazz music--it was a fantactic way of feeding our anticipation of the year-end holidays!

Chowder was hot and tasty. We ordered mussels for an appetizer, but they were delivered after our main course... still, they were prepared well. The location was perfect for us . I think I would return in the summer for outdoor seating..

Had a great dinner. My friend got the "dinghy" of clam chowder and we all were a bit surprised at the size. It was just a couple spoonfuls in a small shell shaped container. But the rest of the dinner portions were generous and we all left satisfied. It was a lovely evening!

Duke's has really good food and an extensive menu. Their appetizer plates are less expensive if you are looking for smaller portions. The staff is superb and out wait person was outstanding and very attentive without being intrusive. Wished they had a happy hour but it is consistently good experience.

Ate outside on Oct 17 - weather warm enough to eat outside! Ate from Happy Hour menu, worked out well, better pricing on HH menu than regular menu, got our orders in before 6pm. Excellent chowders! Tried the dinghy chowder sampler - great way to try all four! Would have rated service as outstanding except that our water glasses were never refilled. Otherwise, a wonderful experience!
