Birthday Brunch. Great customer service. Food was phenomenal as usual. Since it was my birthday and I had reservations,
It would have been nicer for seating at patio part closer and with better water view. Hence, area to right upon entering and going right to restrooms.

We couldn't have asked for a better food and service. Matt was our server and really went out of his way to be sure we had what we needed. Very covid compliant, and the ambiance can't be beat, right on the beach. We are repeat customers and will come again.

I am glad Dukes' was open during these hard times and that the lunch we had there was very good. We drove up from San Diego to get away for a short bit and relax and having lunch at Dukes' was our main stop.

I made a reservation online the morning of the day we wanted to eat there. Your restaurant was recommended by our friends who live in Thousand Oaks. We were in town from Wyoming for our daughter's engagement celebration and to go wedding dress shopping! She found the perfect one!! I had noted this info. on the comment section of the reservation page and when we got there, they had all of us sitting in the best spot on the patio! We had 18" of snow on the ground at home so we certainly welcomed the BEST beach view table as well as the sound of the waves crashing on the beach!!! Our waiter blessed us with a congratulatory piece of their specialty pie for dessert which was so appreciated and YUMMY! The seafood was really good! Everyone was so nice and accommodating! We will definitely come back next time! Thank-you!

Gorgeous ambiance. Great service. Drinks were very skimpy on the alcohol. Food was mediocre at best.

My family and I arrived over a half hour early to our reservation on a busy Saturday night. The valet employee was very friendly and professional. We were told by the hostess that we'd have to wait a while however we were seated in less than 10 minutes. Our server was very friendly and treated my daughter to a delicious birthday treat. Overall our food was tasty and brought out in a timely manner. The service was also great. The night was a bit chilly but they had heaters to warm us up. All five of us left satisfied with our visit. We'd definitely visit again.

Relaxing date night. Great view of the ocean. Definitely make a reservation so you’re not seated in the parking lot.

Great birthday dinner for our 9 year old in the time of Covid. Great views. Safe waitstaff. Can't wait for happy hours and hula dancing to return, though.

Friendly staff, good food, great views outdoors right above the rocks on the beach. Nice to forget this covid mess and enjoy lunch on the beach. Happy birthday to my wife (i forgot to tell them - boo). The staff doesnt make you feel rushed to get out. Get anotherncoctail and relax! Remember to show some love when the bill comes for the staff that are serving you and making this experience possible during these crazy times.

Have not been to Duke's in quite a while. Was pleasantly surprised with the food, service and pristine view. We had the best table in the house it seemed. Menu has improved dramatically. My son said the burger was the best he's had in some time. Thank you for a memorable and beautiful day!

My friend told me she'd heard that the classic burger was amazing. Not so much. It was cooked gray on the outside with a reddish center, and lukewarm. Lettuce was wilty, the tomato was sliced so thin it was barely there, the limp onions slid out in strings instead of a crunchy bite. The 'dressing' just made the whole thing soggy and unappetizing. Ick. I would have done better at any drive thru. And for a lot less than $15.50.

Overall nice covered patio but we went on Sat night at 830a and it was very quiet. Kitchen closes at 9p so we had to rush ordering at the request of the manager. Server and food were great and ambiance was very casual.

My family and I had a wonderful time at Duke’s. The weather was just perfect for lunch and our server was accommodating. Our meal was delicious and the portions were reasonable. Our server was kind enough to make my partner’s birthday special with the complimentary slice of Volcano pie. I also wanted to compliment the young man at the valet. He was very helpful and understanding. Thank you for the experience!

Calamari is the best I’ve eaten. Korean ribs were great too. Limited dinner menu which was disappointing. Had ribs and chicken which was good but not great. Drinks a bit pricey but it is Malibu. $7 valentines fee. 3 hour dinner window. Dine under a tent in their parking lot.

My satisfactory review isn't for the service, it's more for the bland fried fish and the macadamia nut fish dish that was loaded with butter. Food was just. Blah

Our food was great, our service was great. I just hated having to look at the ocean through a cheap-looking rusty chain-link France. It was so weird as looking through the fence at the view would play tricks on your vision. Is there no other solution than that? I felt like I was in prison.

The BROCCOLINI was my absolute fave. It was well seasoned and flavorful. Also, the Mahi Mahi was delicious. Duke's should put the butter wine sauce from the Mahi Mahi on the steak!
