If you’re looking for fresh seafood, Dukes is the best spot on Alki beach. The service was fantastic as the waiter knew the menu well and was able to help with recommendations. Along with great food ad service, the ambiance is stellar. While eating you can take in the water front views. I would highly recommend Duke’s to others for any dining occasion.

My wife and I were in Seattle for a conference. A friend of ours recommended Duke's on Alki beach -- and we were not disappointed. We took a quick Uber over the bridge and spent a wonderful evening with Brenna, one the friendliest and most attentive servers we've ever had. The food was amazing, especially the chowders. We're from Maryland and we know seafood, but this was a great introduction to the northwest spin. The view of the beach from the restaurant is amazing. We were able to take a nice sunset stroll after a delicious meal. Thank you -- and we'll be back every time we're in Seattle.

food was great but overpriced and our server was AWFUL. He ignored us, spoke over us, and when we asked for a wine recommendation he simply pointed out the most expensive option, disregarding our preferences.

Great food!! I'm not much of a seafood eater but I came for my wife and I'm glad I did. She is a seafood junkie and she loved it. Pricey, but worth it. Great vibe and excellent staff, from the hostess, servers and even the cooks gave welcoming looks and smiles. Will definitely come back!!

The food isn’t as good as it used to be. When there were only a couple of these restaurants the quality was way better. Selection on the menu was better too.

Dukes has been our goto place for a nice dining experience - we are retired, so we generally go out at lunch. One of the best parts is the service, which is unfailingly friendly and excellent. The food is good, and sometimes excellent. The Valentine menu however had a beet salad with way too much vinegar. We love beet salad, and this one would have been at least average, except for the strong vinegar.

Our dinner for nine family members celebrating a birthday was WONDERFUL!!! Our waitperson was super attentive and thought way ahead of the curve. Our food was perfect for every member of the dinner party. It was the best dinner we have ever had at that location.

This last trip to Duke’s Alki was very disappointing. We had one waitress waiting WAY too many tables. Our chips and salsa took almost 30 minutes to show up and then it was just before the food we ordered. You could see the confusion in the wait staff. The shrimp of the appetizer were lukewarm and the main course fish was over cooked. Definitely not what we are used to from Duke’s. This is the second lunch we’ve eaten here that was disappointing.

I took advantage of my birthday offer for a free dinner, and chose the cod fish and chips. I shared with my husband the ribs and mixed seafood grill. The fish was moist and delicious, and the grilled seafood had a wonderful flavor. The ribs fell apart and were tender and delicious. I ordered a Manhattan to drink and it was excellent. Our server was fabulous and I liked the ambience and waterfront setting. We will definitely be back.

Birthday Brunch. Everyone was great and it was my first time dining at saltiest.

The only downer was the cooked fish at the far end was dry and hard. Other than that, everything was great!

Dukes is a friendly restaurant. The food is great, lots of options for vegetarians and non fish eaters. The service was very friendly and patient. They did not rush us, even though the place was busy. The scenery at Alki is the best Seattle has to offer.

We visit Dukes frequently. However our last visit on Wednesday, November 20th was quite disappointing. I noticed the dish the next table was having (the ribs and seafood skewers) which looked quite appetizing and I asked the waiter. I ordered that to share with my mother. Incidentally my 88 year old mother was treating us... when the dish came, it was in a large soup bowl.. the ribs were quite burned the skewers (prawns and scallops) were burned as if the grill had not been cleaned.. I know because I cook... not appetizing at all to eat...I did not complain because I did not want to ruin it for my mother and for my husband and daughter. Also my husband's caippino was very saucy versus "soup" I am sorry overall the food and the value was not good at all.... it will be a very long time before we will visit the Duke's establishment. I would have brought the receipt for some form of compensation.... $158 for stale food.... this should not happen now a days...

One of our favorite places in the area. They provided superior service for our granddaughters 9th birthday family dinner. The food is excellent and they have a great kids menu. They brought her a joke birthday treat (on request- a private joke) before the real thing, and it was a hoot.
We are in the club and they give great deals and discounts off each meal, as well as birthday dinner or 1/2 price wine. Mondays are also half price wine night, and the adults took full advantage. Keep up the great work Duke's!!

The portions were smaller than in the past. I had a starter spinach salad that cost $10.90 that was half the size of the past and I added Dungeness crab for $8.90 which was watery and lacked crab flavor. My husband had a similar experience with a blackened salmon Caesar which cost $25.90. Our bill was over $60 for iced teas and salads. I guess this makes us the dummies.

Went on Sunday at lunch time with a party of 5 with a reservation. We were seated right away at a table that appeared to have been set for us ahead of our arrival. Had some cocktails, Blood Orange Marg/Bloody Mary's/Mac & Jacks beer to start that were all great! One of our party was gluten free and ordered the rock fish tacos which came on flour tortillas (not GF). Had to wait a bit to get the correct order while all other entrees were served. The cheeseburger was perfected cooked to temp requested and reported to be very good. I had the mixed grill which was okay. I thought the portions were small for the price as there were only 3 small shrimp, 3 small scallops and what I thought was an average size for a crab cake, served with a grilled potato and fresh vegetable medley. The scallops were cooked perfectly and were delicious, though I would have liked them to be larger or add a few more to compensate for the small size (same for the shrimp). The crab cake was okay, not as large of crab lumps as I would have liked. The two sauces served with my entree went well, although I would recommend serving a couple of lemon wedges with this dish. The vegetable/potato side was very good. Everyone else said they enjoyed their entrees, including the guest with the corrected Rock fish tacos. The staff apologized for their mistake but made no other accommodation or discount for the inconvenience of one guest having to wait for their entree while everyone else was served. Otherwise, it was a good experience and we will return.

We have tradition with friends go to Dukes friendship reunion, we always order almost same things, rockfish rock tacos,calamari and salmon bites-sliders. Love the place. But last week realized what tacos become smaller and jump to couple $ up. Price is not bad but at least keep same size of portions.
And size salad for calamari this time we didn’t like it, corn with garlic, before was better. Overal love Dukes and will come again

Was disappointed, I chose Duke’s for my birthday lunch. Two of my family members ordered chowder with their meal and when they received it, it was lukewarm. The waitress said something about it being the bottom of the pot and do we want to send it back-duh? Had to keep asking for water glasses to be filled. Have been to Dukes a few times with no problem.
