Duke’s is a bit of a tourist trap, but its beachside location in Malibu can make the crowds worth it.
We had a nice family dinner there to celebrate my moms birthday. We had a great first experience there. Food was great but the view Awesome. Kids menu options were better than most restaurants, which was nice to see. The birthday ice cream cake slice was Amazing!
We have visited Duke’s in other locations which was very nice. But this location in Malibu was/is not recommendable. The traffic getting there was awful from the valley, especially down the 405 fwy, and took 1 HOUR to go 7 miles on the 1 hwy before arriving at Duke’s with no accidents reported. I could not recommend this location and will not be visiting it again. I know there’s nothing Duke’s can do about this problem but beware!
Horrible quality food at the buffet and over-priced. Also made us wait 20 min despite having made reservations
Pretty standard buffet brunch with a terrific omelette station. Go for the sensational view, spot on the pacific with a decent chance of sighting a pod of dolphins. The inspiration for the original "Gidget" series is there too.
Celebrating a Wedding and a birthday!
We had a nice meal with a beautiful ocean view. The food was very good, especially the hula pie. Our server was very attentive. The whole staff was friendly and made our visit memorable! We will return!
It was my birthday and it was the perfect bunch!! Friendly, delicious and fun! We loved every moment.. We will be back soon
Always love Dukes! Great views, super yummy food and service is awesome!
Great food, and good service from our waiter. We requested and got a window seat for my sons birthday so watched the dolphins and pelicans while we ate. They gave us a free serving of hula pie for my sons birthday. Recommended.
Very friendly staff. Good food, but a little overpriced. Great to be able to watch the ocean from your seat !
Raucous Sunday early afternoon, hugely noisy, absolutely great - wonderful job by all the staff, Thank You !!!
All good but the backs of bench seats are disgusting. The fabric is full of stains. Didn’t want to lean back.
Brunch-excellent as always.
It was an amazing experience, I would definitely go again.
It was a nice, relaxing date night by the water. Our server was top-notch, friendly (I wish I got his name). Even though we weren't next to the window as requested, we still had a view of the ocean and it was lovely and relaxed. We will definitely return, next time with our kids, who we think will really enjoy it.
Service was outstanding! They made our anniversary special. The view was also spectacular, including dolphins and sea lions!
Love this place. Food was so good and the waiter described each dish perfectly. The booth seats by the window are the best place to be. One of our favorite places to go.
This was our first visit to Duke's Malibu. The occasion was a reunion of cousins, and this was the absolutely perfect location. Our table for 5 overlooked the ocean, and was in a quiet location in the restaurant. The service was perfect - timely, but not intrusive.
Our Calamari starter was excellent, as were my fish tacos, made with mahi-mahi. Everyone else at the table enjoyed their fish and chips.
Considering the location, the excellent service, and the quality of the food, I'd consider Duke's to be a wonderful value. The only downside was the $6 mandatory valet parking fee!
Nice food and wonderful view! Really wanted a table right by the window and one became free shortly after we had been seated and only had drinks so we asked if we could move but they refused. Shame as we came for the setting. I know you can’t guarantee a window seat but it would have been nice to have been able to move when we asked so very politely!
Fabulous view, good service, good food and amazing Hula Pie for Birthday dessert
Great service. Amazing food.
Wow! Perhaps the finest fish restaurant I have ever been in.
We were there to celebrate our cousin's birthday. The service could not have been better, and the food is always fantastic. We had a great table by the window. We come here about 6 times a year but our cousin's have never been before. Now you have 2 more customers for life.
We first ate at several Duke's restaurants in Hawaii and loved the food, the decor and the attentive service and the beach front locations. When we heard that several Duke's had opened up in California, we were anxious to try them The Malibu location is water front and a window seat is perfect. The food and service are excellent. This past trip was to try the Sunday Brunch which is a great value. The Macadamia nut pancakes were my favorite. Using the online reservation maker was painless and easy. For a celebration or special night out this is a perfect dining spot!
Not thrilled this time and we usually love this place. Went to celebrate my birthday and everyone was disappointed that they took our favorite waffles off of the brunch display. We left wishing we had went to Cheesecake Factory instead....
Susan was excellent as well as the gentlemen that quickly overhead us asking for more iced tea and quickly refilled our glasses immediately! That was awesome. I don’t remember the name of the gentleman that brought our boys their vodka, but he, along with Susan, was excellent! Thank you for a nice experience last night!
Service was great, ocean was beautiful, food was delicious!
Dukes is always fun and unpretentious. Good food, fun cocktails, easy parking and an incredible view. What else do you need?
Great view with great food! Outstanding service from our server Matt! Even saw dolphins!
We showed up early for our reservation, they mentioned it would just be 10 more minutes. Gave us a pager, we told them we would be outside and they totally forgot about us. Seated at 8:15, we had to walk in for them to remember they forgot about us. The hostess said “oh crap” under her breath.
The food was cold.
Our waiter wAs the best part of the entire night.
We also received an email from open table saying we missed our reservation, so I had to approach the hostess once again to remind them we showed up.
Not the best experience all the way around.
Great atmosphere and views. Great service. Great Food.
They have permanently removed Prime Rib from their menu.
Beautiful restaurant for watching dolphins while Dinning. The food is awesome & the service is top notch too!
Nice view and excellent service. Not a high end experience but we were not expecting that. The food was very good. Restaurant was busy and noisy. Lots of families enjoying the evening.
Top-shelf service in a great location. Delish food and a real value. Just a very pleasant experience all around.
Nous avons passé un super moment en famille pour les anniversaires de nos garçons , le service est irréprochable ! La nourriture très bonne, le pain excellent ! Et cette vue sur l océan incroyable ! Merci à toute l équipe de Duke’s pour avoir fait de ce dîner un moment magique !
Staff was amazing along with everything else. They even went out of their way to make sure birthday celebration was perfect.
Great seafood and view of the ocean!
