Amazing meal and the best service I’ve had at a restaurant. Would highly recommend for any special occasion or whenever you’re hungry! My girlfriend now claims this is her favorite restaurant EVER.

Service was excellent, very accommodating for my food allergies. I ordered halibut and chips, fish was a bit overcooked, not inedible, but for $20, expected better. Crab/prawn app was too pricey ($22) for the size of the "prawns"... probably u25. Hubby's entree seafood sampler was perfect, as was our marion berry pie.

The best Fish and Chips and Chowder period. We have had these items at several other places and now Duke's is the only place we will go for them. I also had a Manhattan this time and it was excellent. Our server, Alex B, is an outstanding server and we always try to get in his section.

The ambiance was nice but the food was not very good. Clam chowder and lobster soup was bad, didn't taste good.

We come here when we visit our son at college and Duke’s is always fabulous! I forgot that I had made reservation 15 earlier and we were running late. The hostess was very helpful and told us not to worry. Our server Katie was awesome!!! Wonderful menu suggestions! I always get a “Dinghy” tasting of Clam Chowder and Lobster Pernod. Katie told me to try the “Clobster” A half of spoon of clam chowder and half of Lobster Pernod. Absolutely amazing! I always get the Macadamia Nut Encrusted Halibut with the Hazelnut Beurre Blanc. It’s delicious!

It’s a lovely dining experience with great service! Oh, and get the Marionberry Pie with vanilla ice cream..to die for....

This was my third time here and enjoyed the deliciousness. They remembered to bring the gluten free menu (one of us requested) in our online reservation. We were seated in the perfect booth for conversation, again as noted in our online request. Our server Haley, tended to us just as we needed. The Lobster Chowder was the perfect combo of rich flavor and creamy texture. The Crabby Deviled egg was delightfully fresh. And the Seafood Nosh Bite delivered tastebud ecstasy with it's bacon and herbed maple butteriness.

We enjoy Duke's whenever we are near Tacoma. Beautiful setting on the water, and the food and service has always been very good. Prices seem about right for the quality and preparations. Chowder is always a favorite. This is a well run professional operation. On this visit we were staying in Gig Harbor, but went out of our way to stop for lunch. That was a good decision.

Food is excellent. Service is quite good and friendly. Corkage fee is a very reasonable $12, but they also have a nice wine selection. A very broad menu, and a Specials sheet that changes monthly. One of our favorite places to eat.

The view was fantastic, the service good and the food, not so much. The Halibut Fish and Chips with Chowder was horrible. The chowder was extremely salty (and I like to salt my food) and the fish was over cooked, dry and hard. All this for $34.00. The others we dined with were equally unimpressed. We were really looking forward to this meal but were sorely disappointed.

Excellent service. Fish and chips had excellent piece of fish but fries were only so-so. Salad with crab and shrimp had very tasty grilled shrimp but the crab meat was bland and the salad part was average.

I gave food only 3 stars as the stuffed halibut was dry. When I mentioned it to a friend she said last time she had it, it was dry also. Maybe that's how people like it but not me. There are so many other items to choose....still working my way through menu!
