Duke's Seafood & Chowder - Green Lake
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.
My wife and I had our date night at Dukes’s on Greenlake and had a wonderful time.
Online reservations. Great waiter. Awesome food at a fair price.
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.
Great food, a little pricey, but with it.
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.”
We are eating very healthy for January and dukes gave us a lot of choices for healthy and delicious dining. Our servers were attentive and helpful. A great evening
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.
Great food and vast selection
Decent food with great service. It’s pricey for what it is but normal for Seattle’s food scene.
We have never been disappointed with the cuisine - served hot, quickly and delicious each time. Service is also consistently great - made to feel well attended to and always efficient. Wonder why we keep going back?!
We love Duke’s. Wonderful chowder, salads, sauces,and Bloody Mary’s. We always visit Duke’s when seeing family in Seattle.
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!
Great place for seafood and chowder!!!! We've been coming to Duke's for years and it never fails to satisfy and always makes you want to go right back!
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..
Good food & good service:)
Relaxed environment and easy parking
Always good food - nice neighborhood treasure!
Our waiter was super nice. The food was awesome. Great atmosphere. We were able to walk from there to the Bath House Theatre. All in all a great evening.
The restaurant itself was fine, but the waiter was responsible for way too many tables/people to be able to provide adequate service.
Consistently great fish and chips burgers salmon halibut chowders with great wine and beer. Servers are fast and friendly.
Service was great! Thanks Jamie!
Good lunchtime location. As always enjoyed Clam Chowder and Crab Salad. Waitress was very friendly and accommodating.
Very disappointing food . Noisy. not a good dining experience Would go again
Friendly service and wonderful bread and seafood! Will definitely go back there the next time I’m in town.
I love that Duke's food is mostly organic and all the seafood is wild. The food is beautiful and delicious!
Brought Out of town guests from Nebraska. Food and service was great. Palm trees surprised the midwesterners!!
This was our first time eating here. It was a great experience. The food and service was excellent. There were many things on the menu that I wanted to try. Very nice atmosphere. We would definitely eat here again when in Seattle.
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.
Great service and beer selection. Try the calamari!
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!
Clam chowder was amazing!
Wonderful time and great food celebrating a Birthday
Eat here often and always consistently great food and good service. Enjoy the outdoor seating.
Great spot with a real cozy atmosphere right on a Green Lake. Stuffed Halibut is excellent. Service is wonderful.....relaxed and just what you need for prompt service with a lovely smile.
Love the menu and variety. Little expensive for what it is. Seating, tables are very tight.
First time to Seattle and we want to have seafood for dinner. Duke’s seafood and chowder is highly recommended. We are happy to be here. Both service and food are excellent!
