Dukes is our go to place whether it is just us or if we have out of town guests. They have something for everyone, locals and tourists alike. The food is original and healthy as well as tasty. The view is a fantastic ocean panorama any time of day. Give it a try, you won't be sorry!
The Hot Pot is the best dish on the menu!!! It is a coconut based broth with seafood.... I can't wait to go back and have it again!
Our appetizers were great and the service was fine. The only negative part of my experience was that I felt like the hostesses walked through the dining room repeatedly, over and over again checking the status of the tables. I get you have people waiting but I have never seen this method used in a restaurant. Although they walked by quickly it was obvious they were trying to determine how much longer we would be at the table. We were not being rushed directly but indirectly I got the sense for a rush to turn over the table. I would suggest a different method for turning over the tables. I would say that in my 90 mins there, I saw 3 different ladies make the rounds at least 5-6 times with some device in their hands to count.
The setting is 100%California Beach and great for a casual dinner with views of Huntington Beach Pier.
It is crowded so reservation suggested. The menu is varied with vegetarian options. Fish is the speciality. Service was attentive but impacted by how busy the Restsuant was.
Price was as expected and most entrees at $27-32 and although not super expensive probably not an every week dining option.
Will go back it was enjoyable.
Table was ready on arrival. Great service. Was hoping for Opah but was happy with Mahi Mahi. Food was delicious for all. Attentive wait staff .
The service was incredible. It was a great experience.
Fabulous location. Ice tea was exceptional and the service was wonderful. Our server was able to accommodate my request for a change in my order.
This is our third time to dine at the establishment. We always have impeccable service and delicious food!!
This is our go to place for out of town guests.
We had an ocean view table reserved for 6pm however our out of town friends arrived an hour early, and they seated them so they could have drinks and appetizers before we got there. WOW! The dinner was delicious and we tried it all from lobster, steak, salmon and the bbq ribs! All was full of flavor and cooked perfectly. Our waiter convinced us to share a dessert (which we don't usually do), but boy was he right! One was enough for the four of us and every bite was heavenly! Of course, you can't beat the ocean view and the wait who made us feel like we were his only table. Not a place if you're in a hurry, but of you're looking for a leisurely tasty meal in a beautiful atmosphere, then give Dukes a try.
We went for a Valentine's Day and Birthday date. The checks special was fantastic and delicious! The scallops are agreat choice if they are on the menu. The cocktails are really good! My favorite is the Mai Tai, and you can get it for a happy hour price. The service is always good, but can be a little loud at times. This time was beautiful and quiet. The sunset at Dukes are inredible! Make sure you get there with plenty of time to see the entire sunset, the colors can change by the minute. This is a romantic and great restaurant for a date!
