Great experience! Steven was an awesome waiter and took care of us well. It didn’t hurt to have a nice ocean view to celebrate our anniversary dinner. Thanks Dukes! Highly recommend this spot.

We had a patio table with an amazing view. Ordered calamari to start which was crispy and delicious. I ordered the ahi steak. It was more spicy than I'm used to but I cleaned my plate! My husband ordered the burger and had no complaints. Our server was attentive and helpful with our ordering selections. We had a great night!

Our family went to Duke's to celebrate our daughter's high school graduation. It was also our first time dining in since many restaurants in SD opened. We were all extremely happy with our visit! Food was amazing and service was exceptional! Our waiter, Steven, was the absolute best! We'll definitely be back!

Usually a great experience but this time we were really disappointed with the front desk staff. When we called to say we were running late they were rude. When we got there and checked in they never asked us how we were, how our day was going, no friendly smiles, nothing. All she said was “Take them to table ... “

I understand these are hard times but still felt that staff should be friendly. Now more than ever.

Happy from start to finish! Even the potential small hiccup was handled so well!! We made a reservation and requested outdoor seating and a high chair (figuring we’d maaaaybe get some random table outside, if we were lucky). When we got there they brought us out quickly to our table which was right next up to the glass!!! It was one of the best tables in the house. I was so excited bc we were celebrating my husband’s accomplishments. The server was wonderful and looked into food allergy items- even bringing the entire food allergy menu for me to look over. We ordered and I had asked the guy that brought out our food for pickles and he never came back so we asked another waitress who we happened to see quicker than our own. Our waitress then came out right away to check on us, the other waitress brought the pickles quickly and then later the guy who we originally asked came back an apologized for his human error. It was so impressive. From working in the service industry I figured he got caught up with something else but for him to come back out and own it was amazing!! It’s so rare for that to happen. THEN he said that he noticed we were celebrating something and offered us free dessert for our celebration. He already was aware of my food allergy and reviewed the dessert menu/allergen dessert menu with us and we got a free dessert!!! Absolutely outstanding service, location was wonderful of course and food was delicious! Oh also we had gotten a drink at the bar before being seated and the bartenders were super friendly. Looking forward to coming back here and recommending dukes to everyone I know 😆

Food was mediocre. The noise level was too high. The room felt like a cafeteria. I was expecting palms and rainforest atmosphere. The receptionist was charming and the waiter friendly and helpful.
