Duke’s is a bit of a tourist trap, but its beachside location in Malibu can make the crowds worth it.
Beautiful day, sun shining on the water (a view from every table), good food -- light mostly (smaller portions), and friendly staff (just empty tea glass a couple times).
Duke’s did a great job with service and accommodating us on my wife’s birthday. The food has really improved over the last year, too!
Great food, ambience and service!
We were bringing our dear friends to celebrate their 73th anniversary. Duke staff had signed a "Welcome and Congratulations" card and it was awaiting us. So lovely of such a successful, busy place. Our friends were delighted with the extra care and everyone loved their meal, the beautiful Pacific Ocean, wine and even a glimpse of Catalina Island!!
Highly recommended beautiful ocean view... great food!! And the drinks say no more
Really nice place by the ocean. Pelicans flying in the sunset. Amazing. Thanks from Sweden
Always a pleasure to visit Duke's. Do not leave without trying the Hula Pie.
The people that work there are young and very nice. I was very surprised how casual people dress in Malibu. Almost sloppy. The food was ok. Nothing special. The prices are very high but that's Malibu. The view was unbelievable. We were given a window seat like I requested. I wouldn't go back only for the fact it's to far from my house and it's just to crowded and kind of un organized.
When I made the reservation, there was no mention of a Mother's Day buffet only option. I generally don't like all you can eat buffets, as they tend to be picked over, as this was.
The food was average. The bloody Mary was good and the service was excellent.
I would have preferred to have ordered a la carte.
I will not go back for another buffet.
Good food. Disappointed that they didn’t have a window booth available for at least an hour when we got there. I made the reservation over 6 weeks ahead of time. I can understand it’s not Guaranteed but having a reservation that far in advance shouldn’t make me have to wait an hour or more. Prior holidays I only had to wait for maybe 15min or Less.
perhaps it is not really fair to comment when it was Mothers Day and the place was like a zoo. Our server Matt was excellent and never appeared flustered and was immediately responsive despite being pulled by multiple other patrons at more or less the same time. But he kept his cool and was absolutely accurate and never forgot or neglected anyone.
However the buffet seemed to have a problem keeping up with the demand, and I visited the buffet station three times looking for a croissant, and there were none: and the Amaretto whipped cream and coconut cream were empty for a long time. Some of these thing are inevitable when the place is exceptionally busy but the meal did not have quite the same sense of opulence that I am used to. I come here quite a lot when I have out-of-town guests as it is in general a wonderful place to come for brunch.
I think the valet parking situation could be improved. If a patron wants change for a $20 bill, the guy at the desk tells you to ask the driver who delivers your car, but then the driver has to go to the desk and wait till someone hands him the smaller dollar bill values. It would be quicker and simpler if the guys at the desk just gave change and the drivers would still get their tips without any sense of being manipulated.
Wonderful Mother's Day brunch. Lots of seafood selections and macadamia nut pancakes with Coconut Amaretto whipped cream (unbelievably good). Cant beat the view!
Dukes is a classic. Great service, gorgeous views. Good for special occasions.
Great food and service, chef special is different everytime but always delicious.
My son and I really enjoyed ourselves.We were seated at a booth on the water where we watched dolphins at play. The food was great! I had two of the biggest lobster tails I had ever seen.For dessert we had the hula pie which was excellent.I will definitely go back for lunch or dinner.
Great restaurant with ocean view, delicious food, outstanding service.
Very nice workers in every station. Good food. Yummy desserts. Fun place.
You don't come here for the food which is average at best, but the view is unbeatable. Trying once is okay but wish food was better.
I had a good time there for my birthday
I arrived almost an hour ahead of a friend arriving from the airport yet my server graciously allowed me to stay at my ocean view booth to wait for my lunch date. My food was quite good (grilled wild salmon over arugula and farro), Arnold Palmers with free refills and lovely key lime pie. Can’t complain with pelicans flying right by the window and fresh sea air.
Outstanding location (be sure to get a table by the window), very good food and great service. Highly recommend.
Perfect lunch with a friend. Excellent service, food, view.
Second time at this Duke’s. Regular visitor to some of the others. As always the food is AMAZING—beautifully plated and perfectly cooked. Each meal simply explodes in your mouth with unique and distinct flavor combinations that make this place a true gem. Reasonable specials and fair prices for high quality food. And the ambiance is off the charts. They’re all on the water. This time we watched the pelicans, seals, dolphins and even saw a whale come by. Exceptional experience all around.
Duke’s food was fabulous! Appetizers, soups and entrees were excellent! Fun bar drinks and a beautiful view of the ocean. Wonderful place to dine!!!
Grand father in from out of town
Duke’s was amazing they were able to accommodate 12 of us at the window! The food was perfect the service fantastic!!
See you again soon Duke’s !
Duke was fantastic, the food and the service was excellent. The ocean views were so beautiful.
Celebrated Mother’s Day early and took her for Sunday brunch. Most beautiful view and the food is great! I recommend the mai tai but brunch comes with free mimosas and you can get them with POG instead of orange juice! (Pineapple orange guava) we will come again!
Excellent service, food is delicious, nice view and i'll go back again
Delicious food with a beautiful view! Went for Sunday brunch, it was wonderful. The only downside was that it was quite loud because they were very busy, but otherwise very nice!
Took my wife there for early Mothers day. She and our son loved it! Our waiter, whose first name I do not remember but whose middle name was Nick, was outstanding.! We will be back!
The buffet brunch is always excellent with a great variety and some fun surprises. Excellent.
Loved it! Great table in the patio. Poke tacos are delicious.
Food: I had the Chicken and rice dish. The chicken had no flavor and was rubbery. The rice was not hot.
My friend had some fish thing that he said was good.
Service: very good
View: ocean-as long as there is daylight. After that—-well it’s dark out so no more water view or anything else.
Parking: valet service only so add that cost to your budget.
Overall not worth the drive to go there when there are plenty of waterfront restaurants near me from Marina Del Rey to Santa Monica.
The overall mood and experience of Duke's Malibu was great! We had a very special date night with a scenic view of the sunset over the Pacific. That food was very tasty, but the table service was adequate. We drove over an hour to get there, and it was well worth it.
I brought my friends from out of town to Duke's and they LOVED IT! The view is breathtaking, the food exceptional and the service is laid back and attentive. They surprised me with a huge slice of mudpie for my birthday and that was delicious!
We had a window seat(which we requested in our reservation), it was a great view of the ocean, we even had a pod of Dolphin swim by.
Everyone's meal was excellent, from the burger to the fish tacos. The service was also excellent.
Dukes really revamped the menu. Also looks like they redid the inside. the food was really great. everything we had was delicious... get the Poke Taco appetizer and sit with a table by the window overlooking the water. The Ambiance was great the service was great the food was great great way to celebrate my husband's birthday!
The worst baby back ribs ever. Very disappointed. Wouldn’t recommend.
