Just had lunch at Dukes for the 5th time in past year. I had shrimp & crab salad with 2 fabulous dressings on the side & hubby had fish tacos and margarita. Both excellent. And all while watching the waves crash the shore … beautiful atmosphere, music, service & overall vibe. Can’t go wrong here!

Our window seating was perfect! We’d brought our out-of-town guest to enjoy Oceanside dining and view—it was all we (and she) had hoped for. From hostess to service to food to finish, it all was top notch. Thanks, Duke’s, for making our experience the best!

Our reservations were for 6:30 and we were seated promptly upon arrival even though the dining room was full with large parties and several parties were waiting outside. Wait staff was friendly, but appeared slightly stressed, maybe because they were short a person or two. The crab wontons were nicely done and went great with our obligatory Mai Tais. Ahi tuna was perfect and served with a wonderful compliment of flavors. Fish tacos were fresh and filling.

After waiting for a bit for our meal mine came not prepared properly. I had to send it back so consequently my husband ate alone then I ate alone when my food arrived. By no fault of the server because he was very attentive.

Indoor seating was not socially distanced. Tables were inches away from each other, causing other diners and servers to bump into people seated.

Had the lilikoi coconut shrimp. It was very tasty, but the dipping sauce was pretty spicy. The dipping sauce also worked well with the rice and salad.

The food, view, and service were outstanding. The baby next to us screaming throughout the meal and throwing items around the restaurant ruined the evening for us. Not once did the server or management come over to say something to them nor did they apologize to us or offer to move us.

We were celebrating our 15 anniversary and we were lucky enough to be seated at the window with a lovely view. We enjoyed ourselves with people watching on the boardwalk. The waiter was very helpful with the menu options, the item I was going to order was a vegan item, he warned me if I’m not a vegan, I may not like it. I really appreciated his honesty. Menu selection is short but definitely something for everyone. Will love to come back again.

Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. We had seats next to the windows which added to the experience. I just came back from Hawaii where I had lived and Duke’s in Waikiki was always the place to bring our out of town guests. Will come back again!

Your restaurant is way too noisy. With the noise from the table next to ours I couldn’t hear anything my party said, I can imagine what it was like for my brother in law ( who wears hearing aids).
The table next to ours was particularly loud.

Our dinner was enjoyable. We dined outside the bar in a glass enclosed area with a nice view. Our server Jessica strived to please, and she did. My fish was most satisfactory and had a delicious sauce which I used on my rice, which was very dry. That was my only complaint. I recommend Dukes

Service was good but server seemed distracted and busy. They, I guess, stopped doing their bread service which was disappointing. Meals were like a drive by drop off. Took silverware but didn’t have new ones for main course. Overall the staff was nice, food was good, view was beautiful but definitely lacking in an overall experience. Felt more like a Chili’s.

Dukes is always a solid spot, especially if you’re able to get a table with an ocean view. There was a couple service related slip ups, but it’s COVID, everyone is doing the best they can.

Nice place to eat, however we were given an table in the corner window next to the kitchen...overlooking the parking lot (you could see the waves beyond the lot though, so we did have somewhat of a view). Though we were so close to the kitchen we didn't get that much attention. My friend did not think her margarita was very good but my pina colda was). Skip the margarita.
