We had a phenomenal experience to celebrate Mother's Day at King & Duke. Angelica, our server, was amazing. We were also pleasantly surprised and were seated in the private dining room upstairs. It was perfect for our family and can't wait to come back again. Thanks for everything!

King & Duke used to be our favorite date night spot - the food and service were always consistent and good value. Unfortunately, we all noticed that prices have risen by 20% just as portion decreased by substantially. Very disappointed by the

My boyfriend chose King and Duke for his birthday and we couldn't have had a better experience. The service was absolutely spectacular and the food was beyond words it was so good. The staff and atmosphere were so incredible. If you're looking for a nice and classy restaurant to visit while in Atlanta, King and Duke is a must!

Celebrating 2 birthdays which the hostess made note of but the waitress never acknowledged even after telling her why we were there. We had to ask at the end of the meal what was done for bdays! She was not very anticipatory about our basic dining needs...took forever to get just water, drinks, refills. Scallops were lovely but the Bar steak was horrible and should have been sent back. Had not been in a while and definitely won't be heading back soon. Wish we had taken our special celebration elsewhere!

I love King and Duke. I particularly love Lamont Evans, one of the senior staff, who may be one of my favorite people on earth. He is amazing. The food is delicious. The wine list is great. And the people watching is delightful.

Came here for our Anniversary, and we were disappointed. The service was subpar. After we sat down it took us almost 30 minutes before we got our cocktails. Our server seemed to have too many tables, although nice when he was able to stop by, he was clearly overwhelmed.

The steak was tasty and cooked well, although the Scallops were a little undercooked. The kale salad was ok, and the dripping fries were great. We had to flag down our server to get another drink, and by the time we were done with our mains we didn’t even bother with desert since we didn’t know if he would ever come back. Atmosphere is awesome and I’m hoping it was just an off night.

Food, atmosphere, cocktails, and service were all top notch. Their "Duke" burger with crave-worthy french fries is one of the best in the city, and their "King" tomahawk chop - for sharing is a treat. Even the bread service will have you making a return visit.

Easter Sunday Brunch. We expected something more than just breakfast items to choose from, but sadly only breakfast food was available. Food was not good and very expensive. Also, the Bloody Mary I had was way too spicy and all the spices fell to the bottom of the glass.
Overall, not a good experience for our first time there.

I have been there for lunch several times and it was always great.. Maybe they don't know how to do a brunch... choices were all over the place on there menu but nothing really went with anything else... We had a lovely waitress... Oh any I had the worst Margarita that I have ever had in my life... really bad

We now know King and Duke , bad for Brunch

Update (4/13/21): Wow wow wow! Their dinner service was amazing! From start to finish my boyfriend & I were amazed with the food,the drinks, and everything in between! Jessica the GM came by multiple times to check in with us & our amazing waitress(who I hate I cannot remember her name) was also amazing! Easily one of the best burgers,desserts,& cocktails i’ve ever had! We will for sure be back! Thank you again!



Let me first start off by saying the positives! Jarred our waiter,amazing! The drinks were amazing! The appetizers were so so good! Now the entrees,that’s where this fell short. I ordered the Steak& Eggs & was not notified it was prime rib until it was too late. I don’t care for prime rib at all but I had already started to eat (eggs were great) so I ate the eggs & that was it. I don’t love sending food back I just dealt. My boyfriend got the crispy chicken and it was honestly kind of cold & lacked some flavor but it was still decent. I would go back to try dinner(this was brunch) but I would ask more questions fully before ordering.

We took another couple out for dinner to say 'thank you'. We were sorely disappointed in the food and the service. We just order a draft beer and it was not served until we were finished with appetizers. None of the food we ordered was out of the ordinary, and we wanted to treat our friends to an exceptional dining experience. We definitely will not recommend this to friends.
