The food is absolutely delicious! I have recommended Dukes often. Quick service, very polite servers. The best! Somewhat noisy in the dining room, but not even close to discouraging me from coming back. The food is well worth it!

Worth every penny. The filet was outstanding, vegetables were prepared perfectly and the truffle fries have ruined me for any other prepared potato. I also asked for a cocktail prepared with St. Germain and the bartender concocted a spiced pear martini which was amazing. Looking forward to going back to explore more of the menu!

My boyfriend and I went to Duke's for their prefix four course Thanksgiving dinner. It. Cost $49.99 per person and we each had a $12 glass of champagne. First course was butternut squash soup which was excellent. Second course was made with beets and goat cheese. Neither one of us liked it. For main course he got the traditional Thanksgiving dinner and I had the other speciality choice. They were pretty much the same meal except my Turkey had procuito baked on it and I had crispy sweet potato strings and he had baked sweet potato. We both had mashed potatoes, green beans and what looked like a. Pre made ball of stuffing coated with bread crumbs. The Turkey was definitely cut from a loaf shaped roast. There was hardly any gravy. Honestly for the price it was not that impressive.

Waitress was wonderful & food was excellent!! I definitely would come there to stay at the hotel & have another great dinner . Just have to work on the side dish of the mushrooms. To much gravy . Eliminate the gravy & just sawta in garlic & a little butter . Much better taste .,

This was my birthday dinner. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful, kind and really the reason why I didn’t give this place one star overall. The food is steeply over priced. Our appetizer, “hot rock meat sampler” was not worth the $30. It said it feeds two -for people but it literally came out with a hot stone to cook The meats, and 6 sad looking Cuts of chicken, steak and salmon. Sauces were bland and really something not enjoyable when I was really looking forward to this. Crab legs were about $25 over market value which made me opt for something else. I’m really disappointed the food, I was excited to hopefully find a local high end place to dine but instead I wouldn’t recommend the food to anyone.

I have had the pleasure of dinning at Duke's several times. All times have been a wonderful experience, right from the moment greeted by the hostess and servers, who are all exceptionally personable, you feel especially welcomed. And of course last but certainly not least, the food is deliciousness. My favorite has to be Sunday brunch, with the 'special mimosas' being a plus.

Usually a great place but we both had prime ribs , Jets was cold so had to bring it back , was average compared Igor I remember it . Seems like a different flavor , not sure . We both took leftovers and they mixed the potatoes together that we both ate , that’s gross. Also asked for a container of the auju sauce , instead of container they just poured it in so I guess it will stay dry. Usually great but not so good this time .

A bit steep in price for steak. Appetizer was reasonably priced. Wine high price for Riesling. Awesome service and great dessert. Ambience was good, except for the loud table celebrating a bday and standing up to yell and cheers with everyone in the restaurant, kinda killed the mood.

The food, what I ate of it, was really good. Our waiter was on point and attentive. This restaurant gets a poor review mainly because the supervisor Brooke was the most unprofessional and disrespectful I have ever encountered. There was a large table of very loud people in the restaurant. They kept standing and shouting at one another clearly intoxicated. It got to the point that we asked the staff to ask the table to quiet down. The response we received was they are high rollers. Seriously?? Not even attempting to speak with the table. We got up to leave because we couldn’t take it. Left our dinner on the table. We spoke with Brooke who offered no apologies. She had our credit card because we hadn’t yet paid the bill. She actually tossed the credit card on the hostess table and said she would eat the bill. We returned the following day and spoke the manager Nathan. He was apologetic and offered a complimentary lunch which we declined but did appreciate the offer. Brooke should be embarrassed and needs a new job away from people!!

Going down hill! last 2 visits have been less than good. This is our 6th time eating here and meals have gone down in quality and up in price. Food was served cold and steak originally undercooked. When we sent it back they overcooked it and had to re-fire a new steak that did not come out until after the 2 other guests had finished their meals. To the credit of Brooke, the restaurant manager, she was very apologetic and removed the steak from the bill. They will get a final chance before we elect to dine elsewhere for good.

Service was good, dining room was loud with only a few parties. Food was okay at best. Filet was presented nicely, but lacks flavor. Mash potatoes were cold. Porkchop was moist and flavorful. Not our first time here, but possibly our last. Pricey for just an okay meal!

Excellent - as usual!!! We took my adult daughter to Duke's for her birthday. All 3 of us ordered the same entree - Queen Cut Prime Rib. It's always cooked just right and very, very tender. We ordered the calamari and wedge salad to split for appetizers. The calamari is by far the best in the area. The coating is light and the calamari is sooooo tender. The wedge salad was also good, but the chophouse salad is my favorite. My daughter had creamed spinach with her entree and said it was excellent. We split a piece of 14 layer chocolate cake, compliments of Duke's for my daughter's birthday, and it was very moist and tasty. Our server was John who is the BEST in my opinion! He's attentive but not bothersome, friendly but not overly so, and just a pleasure to interact with. His timing is perfect too! We've been here about 8 times now and not once have we had a complaint about anything. It is a little pricey, but that's expected in a casino. My 2 favorite entrees are the prime rib and lobster mac and cheese. I recommend Duke's for the food quality, ambiance, and service!!!

VERY DISAPPOINTED - busy on a Saturday and obviously not enough staff. The main entrees took 45 minutes and was below average when they finally arrived. The steaks were not cooked to what we ordered, and the food was barely warm. We missed our concert and couldn't wait to get out of the restaurant. It was my boyfriend's birthday and I ordered a cake when I made the reservation. Didn't get the cake nor did I dare ask because the waitress was busy cleaning tables in between taking orders. The manager came by and I explained we had been waiting a long time for our entrees. She said, "Oh, we are backed up" and then went on her merry way to the next table. She could clearly see how busy the waitresses were and didn't pitch in nor offer anxious customers a free anything to keep staff or customers happy.
I spent $200 on a "special meal" which turned out to be not so special. Poor form Duke's!

Well, I’m not one to complain. But my steak was very undercooked. The second steak was better, but by then I wasn’t as hungry as when I started the meal (the sides were good) so I didn’t finish half of it. But overall, it’s a really nice place. Thanks for the dessert!

The food was delicious. Crab cakes and calamari appetizers were amazing, as well as their sauces. The salmon dinner was excellent, although the zucchini and summer squash under the salmon was shaved so thin, it was overcooked for me. The salmon skin was nice and crisp, and faced up out of the broth, keeping it crisp. The lemon butter sauce was drinkable it was so delicious. The tiramisu was exceptional, the carrot carrot was amazing, however the 14 layer chocolate cake was tasty but was dry. The waiter was awesome, however it take a few minutes to be seated and to get a server.

This was my second visit
This was also the second time my steak was over cooked.
The calamari I requested extra spicy peppers as the first time it was pretty bland. Much better and the way to order it.

Server was busy so not a lot of time to interact.

Thank the Casino for the comp but expect more.

Oysters was not served chilled and were not up to expectation , king cab was served split and this caused them to dry out , please serve whole . Filet was cook great but needed a better sear on the outside . I would love to try this restaurant again but for the money it’s not worth it . Maybe Dukes needs a better chef that cares . Let’s continue Caesar salad was over powering in dressing and was chopped to fine and were was the cheese so small I didn’t see it , artichoke dip was tasty but the Peda bread taste like it was deep fried and I’ve cooked good idea but wrong method , cut down on portion .
