Duke's is a must if you're in Huntington Beach!! Everything was superb and the perfect place to celebrate my birthday. The scallop special that night was soooooo good and all the entrées our party had were delicious.

Service was great and with a table viewing the beach the atmosphere was great. Our food was excellent ! It is a bit of a drive from our house so we don't get there a lot, but always worth it!

We routinely go to Dukes for celebrations and special dinner dates. The prime rib is always the best we can find and they always take care of the celebration aspects. The night was very crowded so we were seated over by the barefoot bar so got quite noisy. It was an anniversary celebration so we would have preferred to be seated in a different location but this was one of the few times we couldn’t be accommodated. But rest assured we’ll be back soon.

Wing appetizer was great! Mahi mahi was so good. Do yourself a favor and save room for the hula pie. Best dessert I’ve had!
Service was on point. Great experience and great view of beach/pier!

I brought my wife here to celebrate our anniversary. The food was very good but the service that we received was poor. We had other servers help us because ours never came around. He did acknowledge it was our anniversary and brought us out a free desert.

The food and service were really terrific! I wouldn't call the noise "energetic", it was honestly noisy: we kept having to repeat what we said to each other. But the Lava Flow, our server, the food and the view were unbeatable. Been coming to Huntington Beach for 57 years, this was the first time we ate at Duke's (we celebrated my 65 birthday). Can't believe I used to be down on that beach in a bikini in the '60's! Will definitely eat there again, hopefully sooner than later.

This restaurant has gone downhill. The food was always amazing, but my fish was very dry! My husband had the specials of the night. Scallops and risotto. He loved his meal. Service was outstanding though. Bummer on the food.

If you are missing Hawaii then this is a great local option. Food was wonderful - both fish dishes we had were excellent. Our server was super busy but very good to us and all other tables he had. We even got a window table like I requested through Open Table. The only problem with this restaurant is the noise - SO LOUD. We had to practically yell across our small table for 2. Theres all hardwood surfaces and nothing to absorb the sound. If we were a large group I don’t think we would have had as good of a time and probably would have lost our voices.

Has not been a go to restaurant but it will be from now. The price is very reasonable for the ambiance and with the quality and taste of the food make it a great deal.

Somewhat snobby attitude by the hostesses. Food was average, prices were OK for the location. Right on the beach so excellent views. Drinks were costly however the location made up for that. Portions were ample. Service was ok. The fish was nothing to write home about. The hummus was good as was the calamari. Suggestion, order the appetizers and skip the main courses.

My family and I ate at Duke's twice on our recent vacay to Huntington Beach. We stayed at The Waterfront, by Hilton, so Duke's was only a short walk away. The waiters fully explained the menu and their knowledge of the fish was excellent. I had the fried opah fish during my first visit and the waiter explained the texture and flavor of the fish perfectly. It was accompanied with Jasmine rice and a bok choy slaw. Both the rice and slaw were excellent compliments to the fish. I had the same dish during my second visit, but I had halibut instead of opah. I also had pineapple upside down cake during my second visit for dessert. It too was delicious and I highly recommend it.

Although the waitress was very pleasant, we weren't offered any bread at the beginning and it was hard to hear the specials she was telling us about (we were a table of nine). We kindly asked if she could go to the other side of the table to repeat to my MIL. Other than that the food was good although I noticed mine and my daughter servings were not as generous. My husband loved his meal though. I didn't expect a large serving, but it was smaller than I remember in visits past.

I normally love Duke's, hoever this time was really disappointed. My fish was horrible, had texture of a canned Tuna. Appetizer was less then OK. Not sure I will come back.

We've been dining at TS restaurants for over 30 years in both the Hawaiian Islands and in California (Tahoe to Del Mar), and you cannot beat their Mai Tais or crusted fish dishes. The views are usually
great, as is their service and general atmosphere. I would pass on the Tristan lobster dish which does
not live up to the reputation that you would expect for Tristan lobster. If you are into Tristan lobster which is considered the top-of-the-line in lobsters, wait until you can go to Maui and dine at Mother's restaurant (the best in all categories) located in north Paia.
