They forgot to do something for the birthday we were celebrating
An absolute must if you’re on the island of Kaua’i. Never had a bad meal here, great drinks, great service, outstanding food!!
I think the quality of food was not up to par
The coconut shrimps were refried so burned and oily in taste
Fish were not marinated well though were fresh
No choice in coffee except decaf
Always a great place for dinner on vacation, been to Dukes several times and never disappoints
Great food, service, and ambience!
I’ve been to all the Dukes except for the Malibu one and our experience here made this one my least favorite. The location is beautiful and it has a great view. The food wasn’t as well prepared as other Dukes. Little things like no sauce on my Huli Huli chicken...fishy crab wontons. It wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t as good as the others. Maui is my favorite!
The waitress seemed bothered having to serve us. My wife has mobility issues and the place has too many stairs to climb. My dinner was dry and not hot. For $111 I could find much better dining experiences.
Awesome and can’t wait to go again
Nice holiday meal. Always good fish. Great location and view.
We've been fortunate to visit Duke's in Maui and Oahu as well. Though Kauai is a smaller and generally more laid back island than Maui or Oahu, this branch felt most chaotic. The food was ok but not great. I would recommend Keoki's Paradise in Poipu instead. They are owned by the same parent company; the food and ambiance are MUCH better
I would recommend Dukes only because of the Kauai Marriott experience. They still need much work with the front desk hosting staff. And the salad bar area was in need of freshening up. Both presentation and quality. The servers were magnificent and the dinner food quality was what is to be expected with Dukes.
Beautiful setting, overlooking Nawiliwili bay. Gorgeous waterfall and koi river running through the restaurant. Food was amazing - we both had steak and coconut shrimp, delicious! The hula pie is also quite good, and generous with the macadamia nuts. Our server was attentive and friendly. We didn't try the salad bar, but you could add it to your meal for on $4, and it looked great. Free valet parking as well. Highly recommend!
We placed our reservation for 4:45 and were the first seated for dinner overlooking the beach. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs and helped us pace our meal so we could catch a flight at the nearby airport. The mac crusted opah was fabulous and the seared ahi tuna was some of the best I have ever had...tender, succulent and perfectly prepared. This was a meal that was worth the price!!!
Great view, great service, excellent food. Be sure to visit
Always our first stop on the island ... our server, Amanda, is the best !!!
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Kauai. The food is great. The service is excellent. Rick, our waiter, was attentive and helpful. We go to Dukes every time we are in Kauai.
Atmosphere and view are great. Touristy Pricy average food. Hula pie is always a must do for the family while in the islands.
We had a fantastic time! They keep just keep getting better and better. Been coming for years. The management and staff were impeccable, kind, and professional. We loved it! Thank you!!
Pleasant and Prompt Service
Dukes has a great atmosphere and loved hearing the live band from downstairs. BUT I did not think the food value was there. Portion sizes were small.
Delicious meal and friendly, attentive service. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Kauai!
We go here always on the way to the airport before we fly home it is consistent and great
The service was excellent, our meals were delicious, and the atmosphere was lively and enjoyable. Our server guided us through the gluten-free options. Although there weren't many, the recommended entree was outstanding! We have also visited Duke's on Maui and found Duke's on Kauai to be just as good. We would definitely return.
Delicious coconut curry shrimp and hula pie is a must have!
Salad bar very disappointed
Had to wait 45 minutes the first time at Dukes but well worth the wait! Made reservations two days later as the food and service was so awesome.
This is a fun restaurant. The ambiance is totally Hawaiian and the food is delicious. Make sure you leave room for the Hula pie!
The food was fabulous & the service was exceptional!! Try their famous Hula Pie...you won’t be disappointed
You can’t beat Dukes for great local fish. The salad bar is great too!
Our server, Amanda, was fantastic! Ask for her if you go!
We've been to this location three times now, and unfortunately, this last time did not make our trip worth it like the other two times. Despite having a reservation, we waited for a table (even though there were several open seating options) and were seated at a table closest to the garbage/bussing station. No view. So noisy with clanging dishes and smelly garbage. Food was good, server was knowledgeable but even with it not being busy in there, service seemed to be a lot slower. Needless to say we were disappointed. We will likely try again next trip, but not looking forward to it as much as we have in the past.
Guaranteed Great Food! Our server, Kila was attentive and amazing. Thanks, Kila! Dukes is a regular stop for us each time we visit Kaua’i, which is typically twice a year. Never disappointed! Fabulous location, food and service...always!
Great food and service in an ideal location. One of the best stops in Lihue!
We had a late flight out and being only five minutes to the airport was nice. Great service from a very knowledgeable waiter, great salad bar and menu. The music was quite good and the ambience is perfect.
Requested a table by the railing. We were early searing at 5:15 pm and there were tables open. We were not seated at the open railing tables but rather crammed against the wall. Uncomfortable, cramped...request completely ignored by hostess!
Waiting for late night flight back to mainland. Always get the Hulu pie and love the steak. Salad bar was great. Nice selection and breads. Great service as well.
It was great!
Great Food & Service
