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.
AMAZING Crab Cakes and Coconut Shrimp😍
Our server was accommodating, friendly and efficient. We felt safe. The lavender coladas were amazing!
All around Amazing Restaurant, imagine being at a Hawaiian Resort! 10/10 would Recommend.
Thanks to Derek and Rosie who provided excellent service as always!
Out to dinner finally with family!!! So much fun in a great place!💖
Wonderful service, great outdoor seating and food was delicious
Awesome place, great food, even better scenery. Thank you for having us.
Very safe and clean. Great sanitation system. Great food and location.
First time dinning in since the pandemic started, and we were extremely please at the way staff had the entire place set up and didn’t miss a beat. Love this place and will continue to bring my family for years to come..
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!
dukes is always a good place to be. Beautiful ocean view and wonderful food and service
Son’s high school graduation . Excellent service and food
Tremendous view, great Mai Tais and outstanding service from Mary Elizabeth! Dukes can’t be beat on a sunny Friday afternoon
There was no acknowledgement that we were celebrating our anniversary.
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.
Duke’s is the best!! We had the best lunch!! Great service and incredible view!
Loved Dukes. Treated my kids and family quite well. Food was fantastic
We celebrated our anniversary at Duke's. The service and food was exceptional! Save room for their Hula Pie! We will be visiting Duke's when we are in San Diego again!
The Halibut was done perfectly. It was outstanding.
The food was great, our server was great and our view was amazing.
Always a great experience at Dukes. Reservations are a good thing and usually easy to make. Great food and great service.
Justin was awesome and really made our experience 5 star. The chefs special was delicious and Justin made a fuss of my daughters birthday which really lent to our positive experience.
Great food with a Hawaiian twist! The breaded calamari with mango sauce were the best I ever had!
Great service, great food. Treated kids well.
Enjoyed fish tacos and a beer while overlooking the ocean. Pretty view and good service. Will go back if in the area again.
Fantastic! Beautiful restaurant. Incredible food. Amazing service.
The poke tacos was amazing and the halibut with pomegranate sauce was perfection.
The service that we has was outstanding. Some of the best service that we have had in last few months!
Got there 15 min before our reservations and was seated right away.
Great service and food.
Server was great! Gave awesome recommendations. Food waa good. Hula pie was yummy. Definitely will go back, maybe earlier so we can enjoy the view.
Excellent food choices on the menu. Presentation and service was outstanding. Cocktail and wine selections were very good.
We really enjoyed our evening.
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 😆
Great!! We had a nice birthday dinner.
I love this place, thank you for the excellent service.
Everything was perfect- amazing view/food/drinks and the scrumptious Hula Pie made it a little piece of heaven!
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.
Beautiful location. Food and service were great. Our server Lauren was very personable and knowledgeable.
Lovely view of the ocean when entering you feel as if you were attending a Hawaiian Luau! Delicious food.
