Very disappointing. Sandwiches came out with no sides. Waiter gave no explanation or checked back in. Finally stopped her to ask about the fries- brought them out to table in a to go container with the bill. They were about half way cooked. We Left them on table.

We are regulars for the fried chicken, burgers, mac & cheese and tomato & goat cheese sandwich. Our friends thought the ribs were very good. Love having a cozy, go-to neighborhood place for lunch or dinner. The staff is attentive and we have never had a bad experience.

Our first time dining here, had a ruby red mule which was super refreshing. I ordered the fried lobster sandwich with jalapeño bacon mac & cheese and the husband ordered the grilled chicken Waldorf salad. Service was a little slow, but I don’t think this is an in and out quickly type of place. Waiter was super super friendly… The food was delicious. The breading on my sandwich was a little salty, but it was still good. We will definitely be back.

Don’t let the name foul you. I was thinking Old Blind Dog across the street and Luckys Burgers and Brew type menu and that Dukes this would be another good “Bar Food” place. Dukes menu has a great variety of different food options-something for everyone. More upscale then the name would have you believe and I think it’s great.

I had the fried green tomatoes app and they were perfect. Right amount of cornmeal and flour and spices. Then has the steelhead trout, also fresh and cooked perfectly.

Not a lot is seating so go early or make reservations. This place will get popular. Greet to have another nice restaurant with new eating options.

Food was great but service was extremely slow. Our reservation was at 3:30; there were 2 other tables seated when we arrived. Our food order took well over an hour. The table that came in immediately after us were served before us and finished before our meals arrived.

Very disappointing. We had been at the restaurant before the owners changed it to Dukes and enjoyed it. Last night we went and neither of us liked our meals. I ordered the fried chicken and it tasted like fried Banquet chicken. The green beans were like a salt lick. There was nothing special about the macaroni and cheese. I ordered a vodka and soda and the soda was flat. We won't be back.

Awkward layout of small cramped tables, dirty silverware, indifferent service, paltry portions and everything over salted the point of inedibility. Our fried tomato and okra appetizer consisted of 2 (two) pieces of okra and 2 slices of tomato. Previously frozen portion of salmon for the salad was dry and overcooked. Not sure what cut of 'steak' they used for what they refer to as a 'Ranch Steak' but it was 4 thin slices of well done roast beef instead of a med rare steak. Just not a single good thing to say about this place so we left. Don't be shocked if this place is closed in 6 months.

Good assortment of comfort food served in a "southern dive bar" kind of atmosphere. Ribs, Short rib and pecan-crusted Groupercwere very good. The highly reviewed fried Chicken was overcooked and very chewy.

We had a great meal but service was the worst we’ve ever had there. I have been here a lot and our waiter was totally checked out. I specifically told him it was my friend’s birthday when we ordered dessert. He showed no reaction and even came back to our table less than a minute after ordering dessert to ask us what we ordered. During the entire evening we really don’t think he heard anything we said and he was totally barely getting by on service. The ribeye my friend ordered had to be sent back for additional cooking because he got the order wrong. We were there 2.25 hours and it took almost an hour from sitting down till we got our food. It was like pulling teeth to even get silverware. Just not a great night for service.

2 of us h a d the special (Unicorn Fish) and while none us had heard of this fish, it was reported to be excellent. Another had the fried lobster (2 small lobsters cut in half to total 4 pieces). Also reported to be very good. I had the pecan encrusted Grouper and have seldom had better. I did not feel adventurous so substituted fries for the sweet pot. salad.
Service was excellent. Don't remember all the menu prices but my Grouper was $5 more than the menu price shown on the website. Still worth it though.

We came for the music and the Duke’s competition. So glad they are showcasing young, local talent.

We had a table on the opposite side so we couldn’t see the acts. Perhaps you should consider a Tv monitor of the stage on the far side of the restaurant when you have musical guests.
