At King and Duke, we showcase locally sourced ingredients through simple, yet focused hearth cooking. Our goal is not to manipulate food, but to accentuate the natural flavors of our products through slower methods of cooking and the smoke of the wood fire. Through this primitive technique, constantly moving and manipulating the live fire, we invest exacting attention to the preparation of each and every dish.

Our managing partner, Ford Fry, named the restaurant after two characters in Huckleberry Finn, “The King” and “The Duke," a pair of grifters who ‘put on airs’ and pretended to be royalty, when in fact they were a couple of hillbillies who lived in the woods. With our slightly mischievous ways ☺, a huge focus on quality, yet a primitive cooking style and down-to earth atmosphere, Chef Fry felt like it was the perfect name for our newest restaurant.

Been to K+D many times, though not in the last 12 months or so. Food value seems diminished significantly. Although the staff seems busy, no one is in much of a hurry. As a result things were slow to arrive at the table, especially the beverage service. I’ve been a supporter of this restaurant group’s projects for years, so I was disappointed to see a drop in the overall performance at K+D.

Amazing dinner experience. The staff and managers were all a step above the rest. Food was excellent. We were curious about the bone marrow, but were hesitant, so the manager sent one over for us to try. So awesome!! The berry crostata is a must try with the buttermilk ice cream. The experience felt like a dinner party at home with friends.

Father’s day brunch with dad, husband, in law and son! Overall great experience but the first cappuccino was cold upon delivery. Blueberry muffins are to die for and that cinnamon bun...I had a lovely garden Omelet, husband and dad enjoyed their steak and eggs and the Grits! Omg! The best ever!

Our server was excellent - he even made me PERFECT sweet tea as they only have “unsweetened” 😩

The food was impeccable.

Use to like it here but simply poor food quality. Tomahawk steak served completely underdone ...twice. Squash blossoms weren’t really squash blossoms but rather a few shavings of squash blossoms but on top of bread.

We LOVE this establishment! This was the first time we had brunch at King +Duke and from cocktails to entree, it didn’t disappoint. I had Eggs Benedict and my husband had Quiche. By far, THIS was THE BEST Eggs Benedict that I’ve eaten. The biscuit and the prosciutto made it supreme. The quiche looked like a giant slice of cake and my husband said it was delicious. Callie our server was BEYOND sweet and knowledgeable. She has such a smooth and subtle sense of humor.
The day and dining were splendid!

Both my husband and I have loved this restaurant since it opened its doors. Each time we visit we fall in love all over again with the food and vibe of the restaurant. I don’t think I have ever gotten the same meal 2x and have loved everything I have ever ordered, including the cocktails.

We wish our experience had been better. We were there in the early afternoon on Mother's Day so we expected it to be busy, but it was actually only about two-thirds full. We ordered drinks and appetizers and got them right away (a giant cinnamon roll, which was good but would have been great hot) and warm donuts. The problem was with the entrees. We ordered basics off a simplified brunch menu....cheese omelette, French toast, french fries, bacon. The server put our order in at 2:19, but at 3:04 we still didn't have our meal. By that time, we needed to leave for the airport and had to ask for our items to be boxed. Again, we expected Mother's Day to be busy. But 45 minutes is a long time to wait for a meal. What we ate from the box in the car was pretty good, although only mildly warm, so we'd like to try again when they're on a regular menu and maybe running a more efficient kitchen. The servers were apologetic, kind and informative.....we were all on the same team wanting a great experience.

Great spot for Mother’s day brunch. Only problem was my sister hated the strawberry yogurt item. Once she requested honey she could eat more of it but she still only ate half. I suggest serving it with a small amount of honey for those who expect the yogurt to be sweet.
