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.

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.

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.

The service was slow.They brought our dinner to the table before the salads.
It took 2 hours from appetizers to dessert because of the slow service.
The food was good though.

We enjoyed our dinner which was the first one we had at a restaurant since the Covid 19 restrictions were lifted. The wait staff and hostess were excellent. The food that we had was delicious.

We were given a QR code to access the menu and with overcoming a little confusion we were able to get access to the menu over our cell phones. We noticed the selections were limited but still varied enough to address most tastes.

Our only real concern was the lax attitude of some of the other customers dining and drinking at the restaurant in regards to social distancing and other safety anti-Covid 19 practices. We noticed patrons sitting at the bar in close proximity to each other without practicing protective measures. The most serious concern we had was when we observed the musician go over to the table next to ours and start hugging and shaking hands with the entire group at the table. The restaurant staff and management has made an effort to comply with health restrictions but didn't seem to monitor what was happening at guest tables.

Super delicious. Definitely, order the Monchong fish with the macadamia nut herbed crust. I live here on Kauai and this is my favorite dish, on the island. Make room for the spectacular Hula Pie. You can’t go wrong. I promise.
With the impeccable view and scrumptious food and wine......this is truly the best!

Disappointing, I can understand cancelling salad bar.but quality of meal is suffering. Cesar salad was warm and tasteless. Rice was not much better. Four stocks of asparagus still had butt end . Bright side fish components were cooked perfectly. Chicken main was not very good.
These are extraordinary times so a great deal of slack is required . Staff service was good..
