Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers
Reservations on Thanksgiving Day are for our upstairs Dining Room BUFFET only. We will have an a la carte menu available in our Barefoot Bar. We will not be taking reservation in the Barefoot bar. It is a first come/ first serve basis. We will open our Dining Room and Thanksgiving BUFFET at 3:00pm
Duke’s is experiencing the pain of this COVID situation. They’re just now recalling the wait staff and it was several servers first day back. Patience is key - our server had too many tables to wait so things took quite a while to get going. One of the fish meals was over cooked and tough. The staff was very pleasant though and the ambience is fantastic. Enjoy!
Excellent staff, excellent service, excellent food preparation.
What’s not to love? Tasty drinks, delicious food, and fantastic views! Mai Tais are a must!
Always love Duke's for lunch or dinner. BEST Maitai's. great views. Next door to the Marriott. Good menu, very good service. Love their coconut shrimp. Hopefully they will be open 7 days a week soon. Still not many tourists but I imagine they will come. We have resos again before we leave the island
Excellent staff, excellent food, excellent preparation, an asset to the Marriott resort, as is the Marriott an asset to Dukes.
The service was wonderful, the cocktails and Island inspired cuisine were delicious and the atmosphere - 100% Duke’s! Until next time my friends, Mahalo! 🏝🌊🍹🏄🏻
Great as always!
I often don't write reviews and I always feel bad when I write a negative review. I quite honestly don't expect to have a great experience at Duke's. The food is always very underwhelming and the service is never great. But I was quite disappointed this evening. We ordered calamari and a Caesar salad to start, the salad was not very good and they actually completely forgot about the calamari. The drinks were probably the best part. Aside from the fact that we ordered a glass of wine before our entrees came and the wine didn't come until quite awhile after we finished eating all together. This was very disappointing especially since we weren't going to get dessert. My poor mother had to chug her glass of wine so that we weren't waiting too long on her since she couldn't take her drink back to our room. I understand that it must be difficult to be running with COVID, but I expected more.
The only downside, in fairness to Duke’s, is that they were just opening after being closed for so long due to COVID-19. They only had the lower level kitchen and bar open which created delays for food service and bar service. Other than that everything else was great. The delays were totally acceptable given the circumstances. We would definitely go back.
When we are in Kauai Dukes is our favorite place to go. We went Thursday and were very disappointed. Totally understand the slower service and smaller menu due to COVID but this was ridiculous. Quality and taste of food was very disappointing and not near the normal standard. Everything was just ok.
We always enjoy coming to Duke's for the food and the view. Unfortunately during the pandemic they don't have the open salad bar.
It’s nice when it’s not too overcrowded. Our food came very quickly and the service was great!
Excellent over all dining experience! Jake, our server is friendly, professional & attentive. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Happy hour is fun at the Barefoot bar, which has live local music. Duke’s is always our first choice for celebrating too! Free Hula Pie on your birthday is a great treat. Generously portioned makes it easy to share. The best dessert ever! Bon appetit!
We really love their prime rib buffet. We are impressed with the precautions they are taking to ensure the safety of their customers. We were able to eat downstairs in the open air which was wonderful!
Always great food, service and a beautiful view! One of our fav places!
Had an enjoyable brunch with my friendly. Personnel was very friendly.
Went to celebrate my wife's birthday with friends. The pupus, drinks, and main courses were incredible. Minimal diners out probably due to COVID. This added to the incredible audience. We could actually hear the ocean as the evening progressed. They even threw in a free hula pie! The filet mingon was simply amazing!
The view is still amazing! The food and service great too! Nice to have Dukes reopened even with the scaled back menu.
Food and view is outstanding. It’s a must stop while on the island of Kauai.
Perfect location and the atmosphere is so perfect I love the location an view The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful to make a good decision I highly recommend the open seating through the internet.
Mabalin, And hope to see you soon!
Everything is great just wish you had the salad bar, could be possible to have a employee serve onto plate behind shield if we’re to open it back up. Just a thought 💭
Prime rib was great. Smaller than bull she’d though. The service was super good and ambience was great. It’s just a good local spot to go to. The also have Sunday morning brunch now and mondays its prime rib night.
The one thing I notice with this particular Dukes @ Kalapaki Is they are very busy through out the year with tourism. Well, there is no tourism right now. Service is great, food is great, ambiance is great. If it’s in fact busy when you go when tourism opens up, don’t expect to sit and watch the view. Your check will come quickly which means get up and leave so the next group can sit down. You might feel rushed sometimes but it is a high paced restaurant. Don’t take it personally. Other choice is sit at the bar and you won’t be rushed at all. But for the last 6 months and probably the rest of the year the island will be quiet. So with that said, stay as long as you like. No ones really waiting to get your table.
Monday prime rib buffet. Delicious!
A great and satisfying brunch. Good view and great service. Food was great, especially the prime rib.
The food was good but portions wasn’t that great. Everything was good.
In this Covid times it is nice to take the family out and have a great meal, dukes didn’t Disappoint food was very good and the health guidelines was on point!
Great job to the staff from parking attendant to wait staff you guys excelled in quality. I will definitely be back.
Not my first time going to a Duke’s restaurant and having prime rib, but this one during brunch was tasteless, so was the horseradish. The eggs Benedict hollandaise was also tasteless and the ham (not Canadian bacon) was salty. I don’t want to pick apart everything that wasn’t right, so I’ll just say that I was mostly disappointed. Won’t go again.
GREAT SERVICE, FRIENDLY STAFF!
I loved my pineapple drink, made a great dessert and photo
Hard to beat Duke’s setting beside Kalapaki Beach, with open air tables, live music, soft Kaua’i breezes at sunset. Menu offers fresh local fish dishes, plus a delectable steak for when you’re fished out, among other choices. And then just when you thought you were sated, there’s Hula Pie, an original concoction of ice cream, chocolate, Mac nuts and whipped cream. “Oh, we’ll never eat all of that!” you think, but you’ll be surprised. Friendly staff keeps good care of you. The dining room is upstairs; downstairs at beach level, the bar features its own waterfall in a leafy glade.
Great brunch experience.
Excellent food and service
Excellent during this pandemic time...staff was great!
The food was delicious. The workers seemed to follow all the safety guidelines. It was so worth the price.
JJ was great! The food was amazing as always!
Everything went very well the service was very good.
Beautiful view and great service! Thursday taco special was so perfect. Chips, salsa and cajun style grilled fish tacos. Can't go wrong with that!
Service was awesome! Staff were friendly and welcoming....from the valet, hostess, server and managers.
Buffet dinner was delicious! Great idea to offer the buffet. Buffet servers were great! The line moved smoothly.
Happy to see staff back to work. Will be back soon!
