Duke's Seafood & Chowder - Tacoma
What a wonderful lunch! The food was great, the service was excellent. Duke's treats his customers like royalty!
Food was excellent…….Table was perfect at a window and kept our 2 1/2 yr old entertained. Our waitress was the best...she went beyond just serving us. Friendly and fun
You can never go wrong choosing Duke's as your place to dine. Food is always fresh, delicious, and seasonal. The wait staff is impeccable -- fiendly and attentive. Although their prices have risen steadily over the years, the food is worth every penny. Duke's Birthday Club has great deals, too. (It's free to join.) I highly recommend Duke's for any occasion, though!
Rustin ways best restaraunt. The service was exceptional, food amazing. The view was great. Definately coming back over and over again.
Crab stuffed prawns and caesar salad - Simply fantastic!! Impeccable service, Amazing views too
My wife and I had a wonderful "pre" Birthday celebration (for me) at Duke's on April 9th! We were delighted when we were informed that it was "Tacoma Days" and Duke's was offering a three course dinner for just $30.00!! Of course we took advantage of that with Chowder (my wife had the Goat Cheese Salad with Bacon), Goat Cheese and Blueberry Salmon with Vegies (lots of fresh Blueberries!), fabulous Hot Sourdough Bread and Carrot Cake for dessert!! We ate so much and enjoyed it so much we had to take our Carrot Cake to go (it was even better the next night!). Laura W. was a terrific Server keeping our Ice Tea glasses full. We love Duke's Email Club and always take advantage of the "Returning Customer" Rewards. We have dined at Duke's many, many times (mostly in Tacoma, but also at Tukwila) since moving to Port Orchard five years ago and have always had a wonderful, memorable dinner no matter what the weather. The views are always gorgeous, the dining room always warm and cozy and the food always delicious. We have entertained family and friends at Duke's and they always say....."Wow, what a great evening we had at Duke's, let's go there again"! We lived in Fairbanks, Alaska over 40 years so we, of course, LOVE Salmon and are very appreciative of the fact Duke is concerned about their habitat and sustainability. Thank you Duke!!
Second date with a beautiful woman ambiance was great beautiful setting great service and food
Duke's never fails in succeeding in providing us with excellent food & service!! Our "to-go" place in Tacoma!
cant say enough good things, especially if you like a wide variety of seafood dishes. cant wait to go back. and the prices are good for the portion size. beautiful views, good service, and neat atmosphere as well
We had a great dinner and night out with friends! The service was great and the food fantastic!
seafood was overcooked, the bourbon honey glazed salmon had a watery coating of something that tasted neither like bourbon nor honey. shrimp was cooked to point of being tough. Our table was in a nice location by the window overlooking the ocean, but the table was so small it could barely accommodate two dinner plates and two glasses.
I was there on 4/5 and tonight at 4/7.
Both servers were outstanding. Food was excellent.I will be back . Brought in a friend today. He might sign up to become a member. Keep this up!
Everything was excellent. We have been looking for a good seafood place and found a excellent place . Will definitely be back!
Food and service was great but the food is a bit overpriced. Only problem I had was the greater arrived 15 minutes before reservation and was told we had to wait till our time. There were 5 empty tables if not more. When asked about why we have to wait we were told not enough servers. The funny thing we were sat at one of the empty tables 15 minutes later.
Food was excellent, especially the award winning chowder! Service was great too, would absolutely go there again.
Consistently good dining experience!
The service was exceptional. I had to push my reservation out 30 minutes & the host was very accommodating. Our server Katie was knowledgeable about the food, beer & wine. They honored Happy Hour prices in the dining room when we inquired. The food was delicious.
The restaurant was very clean an super friendly, the services was amazing, our server was so nice and polite
Dukes is a cross between a waterfront restaurant and a pub. I prefer this more relaxed atmosphere over fine dining. The appetizers and entrees are nonetheless worthy of a good restaurant and range from gourmet dinners to pub burgers. I had a Thai Ginger True Cod special that was generous and delicious. The fresh sourdough bread was really good. I did not take part of libations, so have no comment on that. I will definitely return.
Excellent in all ways: wish they had a hefeweizen but have no other suggestions. Loved their elderberry cocktail. Love the scallop and bacon appetizer, crab is fresh, GF chowder is amazing.
I've only been to Dukes twice, but I can assure you that it is amazing! They have delicious food, a wonderful atmosphere, good portion sizes, and a beautiful view of the sound. In addition, I greatly appreciate their commitment to sustainable seafood. Please try this restaurant - you will love it!
Best chowder ever! We did the clam chowder and it is definitely award winning in my book. It is easily our new favorite spot for seafood since moving to the area! Soooo nice but still casual. And love that it’s on the water. The booths were a tad small for our family of 4 but worth it.
We requested seating in an alcove to accommodate an infant seat. The staff was fabulous and sat us in the perfect spot with a sling for the infant car seat and a fabulous view of the water. Our server was very friendly, very informed about the food and attentive. The food was delicious. We will return whenever we are in the area.
Excellent food, LOVE the gluten free chowder, bacon-wrapped scallops, crab appetizer, the pesto on the salmon, etc., etc.!!!!
The atmosphere, food and service was great, Definitely going back!
Wade was an excellent server and the food was delicious!
We enjoyed every part of our visit. Our waiter, Teki, was attentive, pleasant and polite. We will be back!
Service was the absolute best! Chicken corn chowder is a MUST!
I was a bit disappointed in the food.
I sent back the calamari because it was bland and tasteless the waitress replaced it with the coconut shrimp appetizer it was delicious. The clam chowder soup was good. The crab cake was a bit disappointing little flavor. The Caesar salad was okay. Overall good experience food okay price expensive
A regular go to in our rotation for good eats and great ambiance. The food is amazing, wait staff is always stellar and the bartenders cocktails are on point.
Great food, great service! Will be back again for their amazing award-winning chowder and seafood 🥣🐟
Our server was outstanding and as usual the food was exceptional!
Amazing service and the freshest seafood in Tacoma. Tried the Rockfish Tacos, crab cake, clam chowder, seafood salad and cod fish and chips. All were amazing. My kids had the pasta and fries and loved it as well.
Duke's menu is particularly attractive to me since it includes a number of organic items/ingredients and locally sourced foods. Everything I've tried, over many visits, has been excellent. Love the blueberry lemonade. A great view, a perfect place for happy hour too.
Our window table for five allowed us to watch the sunset as we enjoyed our perfectly prepared entrees of salmon pesto, blackened salmon caesar and rockfish tacos!
The food made my family ill.
Outstanding food and service. I have business lunches here frequently and it always makes a great impression. A gem!
We have had consistently good meals at Duke’s, and this was no exception. This time we were attracted by half price bottles of wine on Mondays and the emphasis on Washington wines.
Two of us ordered a “mixed grill “ that included shrimp, scallops, and a crab cake, along with delicious vegetables. I’m not sure a crab cake fits into the grill nomenclature, but I’m glad it was there. The third diner ordered a stuffed Alaskan pollock from the specials menu and said that it was very good. The mixed grill was well-prepared and cooked just right. An accompanying pesto sauce was very good.
Service was timely, friendly, non-obtrusive, and knowledgeable.
We chose a Rose to accompany the dishes, and it went well with all of the dishes. No dessert this time.
Overall a great dining experience. We will be back.
Top Notch. Impeccable customer service and delicious food. Next time we are in Tacoma, this place with be at the top of our destination list.
