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.

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

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.

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.

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 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

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.

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.
