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.

Great location on the water with beautiful views. Delicious seafood but also burgers and other selections if you have a group with people who might be looking for options other than seafood. Busy place on a Sunday so parking is tight and may have to park across the street. Recommend a reservation if you can.

Clam chowder was good. Halibut and chips was slightly over done. Halibut was dry, both mine and my wife's. Good halibut should be light and flakey. This was not.

Met with old friends for lunch. Food was wonderful. Gave birthday girl a free birthday small pie for all of us to share. There was some sticker shock upon seeing prices. No senior menu and not lunch special. Pretty pricey for those n fixed income. Staff was very friendly.

I made a reservation for the first time using open table for a meeting with prospective clients. The staff were on point and attentive, our waitress asked if we were in a meeting and was careful not to be disruptive. I'll definitely be scheduling additional meetings and returning for a date night with my husband.

My wife and I went for an early birthday dinner and were very happy with the seating, service and food. Not surprised, as we've always found Dukes to be top-notch. The waitress was very pleasant, professional and attentive, and the manager stopped by to check on our food. The fact that the sun (Sun?) was out and the water view was great, made the overall experience fantastic. Keep up the good work, Dukes. We'll be back.

Was told we would be seated by a window to celebrate husbands birthday. Did not happen. Got a table with a pole in the way so I could not pull my chair up to the table. Had another large party in the room that was so loud could not hear the person next to me. Was told we would have a booster seat, did not happen. We had to wait 20 minutes even though I booked a reservation plenty in advance. My fish and chips were dry and small for the money. The ones at the Ram are four times the size and fresh. I won’t be back

Fish was horribly dry. Grocery freezer fish would have been better. Chowder was EXTREMELY salty. Couldn't taste anything else. No value here. Excessively overpriced.

Dukes use to be a place my husband and I went to for awesome chowder on a cold evening. It is now our ‘go to’ restaurant! We love all their food and really enjoy the bartenders when sitting at the bar. The staff is very friendly and attentive and the food is excellent.

The service was great but the cost was in excess of the good taste of the food. I paid over $100 dollars for two servings of salmon and one serving of chicken tenders. We did not even have any alcohol. Nice setting but I probably will not go there again in the near future.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Wade was our host, and he was nothing short of amazing!! He helped me step outside my comfort zone by suggesting the Stuffed and Puffed scallops, and offered the dish for free if I did not like it. I absolutely LOVED the food. So delicious, and filling. Wade was very genuine, and was not over bearing or bothersome. I will definitely go back sometime soon!

My wife and I met another couple on Sunday to celebrate my birthday. We all enjoyed the wonderful selection of chowders to start our feasting. The halibut was perfectly prepared as was the grilled salmon. The sourdough bread provided is a standard feature at Duke's and was excellent. The service was impeccable as our server seemed to anticipate our every need. Each of us ordered a dessert to complete a spectacular meal. I highly recommend Duke's for any occasion.
