Fun experience for Birthday on the Alki beach
Birthday dinner. Enjoyed the Duke’s Cheeseburger. Generous portions well prepared. Nice view even on a rainy evening.
Our server apparently was having a memory problem that day. There were five of us. Three of us got our drinks served to us the other two had to ask for their drinks again. We were never asked again throughout the entire meal if we wanted a refill. Three of us received our meals at the same time. One of the three of us actually got something they didn't order but they left it with us anyway. The other two people did not receive their food. After waiting a half-hour we called a different waitress over who then retook the order and placed it. After an hour from the original order the two were served their meals. One of them specifically asked for no onions. They're Burger arrived with onions. I mentioned that there were five of us at the table we asked for bread we were given four pieces. That should probably sum it up for you. I would not recommend this location again. The unfortunate thing also was four of the five were here from California on a visit. I'm sure they would never recommend this restaurant as well.
Bottom line: come for the chowder - stay for the seafood. Really, the chowder is so good they give away the recipe. But other dishes like the Unchopped Seafood Salad are just as tasty.
Price-wise, it's definitely a special-occasion destination as cocktails start at $12.50. And if you go in summer, expect the Alki Beach ambiance of cruising cars and pop-up buskers. But the staff are great, and flexible: we wanted a table further away from the noise of the kitchen and ended up outdoors under a heat lamp...it was perfect.
My wife and I went here for our first year wedding anniversary and noted the event in our reservation. We showed up and we’re seated at the table furthest away from the window view we wanted, by the kitchen. We were rushed through our first year anniversary dinner in 30 minutes. Just an overall awful experience for our one year anniversary.
We had super service by waiter named Tim. Great food and great service.
Great service great food. Too loud for the business meeting though.
The food is always fresh and the wait staff knows how to answer our questions about menu items.
Great seafood with an even better view!
My hostess and server plus everyone bringing bread was amazing! The shrimp was way over cooked but, my crab cake was really good! Scallops were on point! Thank you for such a nice relaxing meal!
The fish at Duke's is always top quality with a good quantity compared to price. The service is attentive and professional. The top level deck has got to be in top 10 Seattle Restaurants for enjoying a sunny afternoon on Alki Beach
Great location. Fish was fresh. Service ok and some apps were lukewarm.
Celebrated my Birthday for the 3rd time at Dukes! The food was hot and tasty and the service could not have been better!
Dukes is always at the top of our option list. The service is consistently excellent, the atmosphere relaxing and the food is fantastic! We'll be back!
The food was disappointing. We’ve had positive experiences at other Dukes locations, but my salmon was extremely over cooked and under seasoned. The salad hardly had any dressing and wasn’t tossed to spread it evenly. The clam chowder was lukewarm. The whole meal was underwhelming and overpriced.
Excellent waiter. Delicious food!
The food and atmosphere were great, the restaurant was also very clean. The service was as well wonderful, makes for a great date night!
It was our first time and our waitress Lexi was new as well but did a great job! We will be back! Food was deceiving you filling and good! Chowder was very good. Wish we ordered all 4 versions. Amazing service from the hostess to the bartender! Quick service and very attentive waitstaff.
Very small portions, for the price. Food was okay. Nothing I’d be back for. Fries were cold. Just not impressed
The food was amazing! It was a birthday lunch and server made sure to wish her a happy birthday. Definitely try the crab dip and fish tacos!
The food is always good at Duke’s, however today it was even more phenomenal. You could taste the love that the cooks put into it. I think this was my best meal ever at Duke’s. The service was phenomenal as well. Our waitress knew the menu and was very good at giving advice as to what was best.
We had a great time at Duke’s. Our wait staff was friendly, humorous and helpful. The view is beautiful and the food was delightful. I want to go back.
We both had the salad with shrimp and scallops. We know fresh fish is expensive but felt the quantity could have been a bit more. We've eaten here many times and have been pleased. Thanks for doing your best to be open during COVID times!! Thanks
Delicious wild child salad! Great Washington white wine.
The service was great. I had reservations and was seated immediately.
Our food was great and our server was very attentive.
Went here for our 3rd wedding anniversary, and they seated us at their best table. Absolutely wonderful food and service!
Food was excellent. We really enjoyed everything about Duke's. When we are back in the area we will definitely eat there again.
We sat on the roof with a gorgeous view of the Olympic Mountains and each enjoyed a different seafood dish that was excellent. Our server was very professional as well. Terrific experience!
Dukes is my hangout on Alki. Always dependable.
Underwhelming, over priced. Should have went to Salty’s.
Solid food all around and friendly staff
The portions of food were so small compared to the price.
Best fish tacos ever. Decided to try the seafood salad this time. It was small for the price, Taste was ok. Nice amount of seafood in salad. Dingy chowder is 3 bites.
Very loud. Every table full. Their 1/2 full is because they don’t seat upstairs.
I’ll go back to my fish tacos.
Great service, great view. Wish they had more to chose from for people like me who don't like any seafood, but have friends who do.
We were celebrating a special event and they had chilled champagne ready at the table, as requested. Fantastic meal, great service, amazing sunset view.
Everything was great! Service was perfect & food amazing!
Happy that they now have oysters at the Alki location.
The Happy Hour menu only lists a few items as X$ off but does not show the price. It would be easier to just show a Happy Hour menu rather than switching back and forth between the dinner menu on your phone and the Happy Hour menu on your dates phone. Also, during Happy Hour, not all items are a discount. The barely two soup spoons full "dinghy" chowder was $4.25 and not a HH item. Don't bother with the dinghy as your soup spoon is larger than the opening to the dinghy.... The best deals were the salmon sliders and the Calamari steaks. The avocado tower on the Prawns was not the "tall tower" we saw at our last visit last year during indoor pandemic dining. Also the sourdough bread was fabulously warm and hearty. The wait staff were attentive and cheerful.
I’m a raving fan. This was my 85th visit to a Duke’s since their re-opening. I love all of the locations. Alki’s staff, Derek, their manager, and the food was fantastic! Go Duke’s!!
