    Valet greeted us better than front desk, the reservation was for 8pm, didn’t get seated until 8:20. Waiter didn’t even welcome us he just came up and handed us 3 paper menus and said we had to share it was a party of 6. Food was terrible, mediocre. Steak was ordered medium rare, it was between well and well done. Just a horrible experience, liked your Huntington Beach restaurant 1000x better.

    We feel so fortunate we were able to walk in and secure a reservation. This setting is the most beautiful dinner we have ever experienced. The service was outstanding and the food so gourmet and delicious! We even took the most beautiful family picture on the upper level to use as our Christmas card!

    Food was good to very good. Salad bar was nice, nothing outstanding. We had a burger, nicely prepared, accompanying fries were fine and the ginger coconut sauce ravioli were very good. Kristina did a wonderful job as our server. Can't beat the view. Prices are what you'd expect at a resort with an ocean view.

    Fish was dry and tough, steak was overcooked, salad bar has changed and was very disappointing as lettuce was yellowing, wilted, and not a good variety of toppings. Drinks take a long time to get. Lanai and live music were very enjoyable though.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Duke’s. The fish was delicious as well as the hula pie. The restaurant is beachfront and located next to a resort. Dress is casual and the atmosphere is relaxed. The Mai Tai was good but I had better ones at other restaurants on the island. Overall a great experience.

    Very nice experience despite the limited seating due to a water leak on the lower level. Service was outstanding. Salad bar underwhelming and hard to reach everything below the plexiglass shield. Entrees were very good.

    My husband and I really enjoyed the Opah fish dinners we chose yesterday. His was "baked" and mine was "Mac Nut encrusted". Also chose to add the salad bar to our dinners. The salad bar is great with many options. One of our favorite restaurants on Kauai.

    Fantastic staff. Good food. Good location. They lost our order twice. It was a busy night but they more than made up for it with good food and good service. Still when you are really hungry it’s always nice to not get your order lost. But I would still go again.

    The location and setting is one of our favorites on the island. The food is always excellent, but ever since the salad bar reopened after COVID it has been extremely disappointing. It was always a highlight of the meal before, but now it is depressing to visit. Very few options, poorly presented, no labels, and no blue cheese dressing. If not for the salad bar, I would have rated it 5 Stars.

    Although every thing in Kauai is expensive I found Duke’s to be a good value comparatively. The salad bar is an excellent value. The Hula pie is to die for. We ended up eating here 4 times on our week long vacation.
