Always a great experience and our server was wonderful!
Great oceanside place. Lots-o-seating even with CV-19
They didn’t have change for $100 so I had to tip over $65.. which to me is a bit ridiculous.. how does a high class malibu restaurant run out of change to give customers? Food was amazing I’ll be back.. with money in my card though. Lol.
Great service and food , no better view of the ocean!!
Love Duke’s! Always a favorite. Calamari appetizer is the best - large, meaty pieces - not the little tubes and legs. The Seafood Hot Pot was delicious, as was the Wedge Salad and the Prime Sirloin.
A beautiful day at the ocean. Everything was wonderful
Very good food, the view is beautiful and the service excellent!
We had a table out on the patio with a beautiful view of the ocean! Everything about lunch was perfect, the food was delicious and our server was outstanding! Made a reservation and only waited about 10 minutes past our reservation time.
Our party of 2 went to have dinner with a 4:30P reservation. We got to sit down early and the view of the ocean was just beautiful. We sat under a large tent with two opens sides and other tables were six-plus feet away from us so we felt very safe. The waitress was super friendly and quick. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening out. Bring a jacket or cover-up though, the wind from the ocean does make it chilly!!
Great first time I will be back
Great service, efficient hostesses and great servers. Outside dining only but a very pleasant experience.
Food below average and so pricey. Ur paying to see the water.
Enjoyment food with great scenery. The definitive Pacific dining experience .
Best service our waitress was professional friendly and accommodating the crab legs were decedent and our table overlooking the ocean listening to crashing waves was nice Our son enjoyed his birthday dinner & Hula Pie too :)
We were greeted very nicely and, since we had a reservation, were promptly seated. Our table had a great view, service and attention was very good. Definetly would visit again.
We love Duke’s. It’s such a pleasure to enjoy a meal in this beautiful location. Southern California at it’s best! Good food, great service, never disappoints.💕
Nice location and restaurant. I would go there again
Best Fish and chips every and the nut crusted fish was worth repeating! Yummy
I asked for well done meat and received medium... poke tacos were ok, the sauce kind of ruined it....and the hot pot had terrible lobster in it.
Great experience and service. Spent Valentine’s Day and made a reservation in advance. Asked for “as good a view as possible” in the special request fields and they fully delivered, giving us a patio seat RIGHT next to a window. The waiters was super friendly and attentive, and took some pictures of us when we asked even with Ms. Rona going around! Great service, great seating, and the food is reasonably priced. Recommend and will definitely be back.
Absolutely amazing food, location, view, service & ambience.
Great way to spend Valentine's Day.
Thank you Dukes!
This is a great little spot the service is wonderful the foods pretty good & the view is amazing. my husband and I went to the Duke’s in Waikiki on our honeymoon so whenever we want to feel a little nostalgic and look out at the beautiful Pacific Ocean we come to Duke’s in Malibu.
Dukes Malibu is my favorite restaurant and even though the pandemic changed the ambiance, the food quality didn't change. I look forward to coming back again soon!
Server was a bit rude and absent but food was great!
as always we had a pleasant lunch and enjoyed seeing so many old friends and servers.
Amazing place to enjoy with the family and friends.
out server was awesome and the view was amazing will be back soon
Only complaint was that our table was poorly positioned so that it was open to the cold wind which made the meal uncomfortable. Other than that all was very good.
We did not enter the restaurant because the restaurant did not open at all. This restaurant wasted more than two hours of driving time.
They’ve set up outside and still a. Great way to enjoy Dukes. Service was exceptional, thank you so much. I know it’s not easy to stay positive due to the circumstances but you all made us feel so welcomed.
Saw the staff wiping down all chairs and table after each party left. All wearing masks. Nice outdoor space where the diners could hear the crashing of the waves. Food was good...fish cooked well, but the hamburger was ordered well-done, but had pink inside. Cocktails good. Too full after dinner to order dessert, but hula pie was tempting.
Tough times for both diners and restaurants. But we were surprised at how Duke's matched troubled times with such a great spirit. From the moment we arrived, and got assigned "waiting space" with a charm that buried our worries, to being seated where we had requested, to getting fast and funny service (Danny), to dining on excellent fish, to being asked by busboys before removing our dinnerware, we had a great time.
Thank you, resilient, iconic Duke's Chris and Angela Pechin
Great service, environment food location and atmosphere
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.
Great place ! Great time ! Our server was amazing and very attentive!
Food and service is always great, saw our waiter we had about 2-3 months ago Darren and he remembered us. So great to see him, very friendly. Will request him for future visits
The food was subpar and the drinks were horrible. We ordered 4 different drinks and each one was less than desirable to say the least. Extremely dissatisfied with the service and quality of food/drinks.
The day was sunny and beautiful. The service as always was excellent and we even saw dolphins passing by. I love going to Duke's and I highly recommend it to anybody.
