We met our kids and grandkids here for dinner. Our table was all set up when we arrived, complete with highchair. Our waitperson was so friend,y and attentive to our needs, anticipating what we would need for the 1 and the 4-year-old kids. Our food was fantastic, as always. We love coming here because we know we can count on a delicious meal, full of wonderful flavor.

Duke's is our family favorite for celebrating special occasions. The food was delicious (best chowder ever) and the service was first-rate. My only complaint is the disappearance of the cole slaw! Duke's had wonderful slaw, with a light sesame dressing. It went missing several years ago, replaced by a lackluster Waldorf salad or an OK kale salad. Please, BRING BACK THE COLE SLAW!!

We took out-of-town friends who enjoyed their first time at Duke's. Everyone loved their chowders; no surprise there! Duke's sourdough bread is a winner too. I found the sauce a bit overwhelming on my Copper River salmon ("Duke's Favorite Pasta with Wild Alaska Salmon") - while good, I couldn't discern the salmon's uniqueness; it may as well have been prepared with a lesser fish. The large menu offers many varied choices, so temptations linger and we are looking forward to dining there again. Maybe we'll even have room for dessert next time. :)

You can't beat the quality of the food and service here. Serious yum happening at Duke's! It's a little expensive for what you get, so we tend to go here with out-of-town guests and special occasions...with even a 10-15% reduction in prices, we would go more often.

I love my neighborhood Duke's. Being a vegetarian that does not eat seafood, I wish Duke's would offer more vegetarian options on the Happy Hour menu and the lunch and dinner menus.

Rachel was our wait person as well as the bartender for the bar area. She had everyone under control - regulars and newbies - and she was quite entertaining. She knew her menu and had some great recommendations. We would return for her personality alone!

We had the most delightful meal at Dukes with Jaime as our server. My salmon and vegetable dish was served with perfection including quick fried basil leaves on top. My wife’s dish was a delightful mixture of crab cakes, scallops and shrimp. All in all, a delicious, wonderful evening.

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.

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.

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!
