I love Duke's. The food is good. The wait staff is friendly. You can look out at the ocean with enduring attitude. And when I can hear the music, it reminds me of being in Hawaii.

A big disappointment for me! I live in Rancho Palos Verdes. I had my car in for service, decided to take a lovely drive up the coast north of where I live. Decided to eat st Duke’s where my daughter had her wedding reception 15 years ago. The bbq ribs were not fresh and the coconut shrimps were dry and not luscious as I remembered. Sadly, I do not want to return. The windows were dirty, they should be cleaned daily when weather is awesome.

Definitely cannot beat the view. Considering it wasn’t terribly busy, the service was pretty slow. I had a crab and shrimp salad that was overdressed and soggy, And if there was crab in there it was minimal. I was entertaining a client so I didn’t complain. He said his food was just OK.

Thank you to the wonderful waiters at Duke's for making my daughter's 21st birthday a huge, fun success. They were attentive and so kind! The HULA pie was outrageous and delicious. Many thanks to the fun bartenders and waiters for making her day so very special. The food was excellent, too! I highly recommend Duke's!! And we will be back ❤️

The food quality and selection was very mediocre for a price. Sunday brunch used to offer a lot more selection with a much better quality. Smoked salmon and chocolate covered strawberries were the only things I liked.
Some of the breakfast items offered were a similar quality normally offered by a budget hotel.
I wish there was a choice to order off the menu and skip the breakfast buffet all together.

The location is great, but the mandatory parking fee isn’t. The view is appealing, but the noise level is appalling. The service is friendly, but the pricing’s designed to pay the property taxes. Of course, its all relative and, if you feel like paying for the view, that’s up to you.

Our experience at Duke's Malibu was fantastic! We got a an amazing ocean view right at the window and there were dolphins feeding right in front of us! Our server was fantastic- friendly, patient and helpful. I ordered the Lava Flow cocktail which was AMAZING and the Banana Leaf Steamed Fish & Shrimp which was so flavorful and delicious. I was so happy there that I didn't want to leave so we ordered coffee before we left and the waiter ended up not charging us for those. Overall, this has become one of our favorite places to bring out of town guests. I will absolutely be back!

Duke's was an incredible experience. The atmosphere was great! Laid back, fun, and lively. Our waitress was very attentive, as was the rest of the staff. The food was absolutely delicious and were sizable portions. It was my mom's birthday and they brought out a delicious ice cream cake on the house at the end of our meal. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back the next time were are in the area.
