    We spent 5 hrs visiting after not seeing one another for 27 yrs. The service was impeccable & we never felt any urgency to leave. It was a wonderful luncheon.

    We came in from out of town for a quick weekend trip and were looking for good seafood. The food was great, scenery excellent, service fantastic. We were there mid-January and sat outside on the heated patio. I was skeptical at first but the heaters kept us plenty warm and they even offered blankets - nice touch!

    My family loves going to Duke’s! It is more expensive than we typically spend, but it’s a fun treat. We especially love the Lake Union location. Our favorite dessert is The Brookie!

    Wonderful service. Food was excellent. The cod fish and chips were thick and very fresh. Chowder was so good. It’s a favorite of mine when I go into Seattle. My friend had steamed clams and she was in heaven. Enjoyed the view.

    The food and service was excellent as always. The clam chowder is a must have. Crab salad was delicious. The crab cakes are so lightly crusted that you get an amazing amount of crab. A standard stop before a Kracken game for my son and I.

    It was more like the atmosphere of a bar we went there after the Nutcracker and it was loud and football games in. Wish we would of found a nicer place ordered bowl of chowder and it Vance in a cup with about had a cup in it. Did was good but don’t go gets for any celebration It is more for hang v out grab a bite place.

    A disappointing meal from beginning to end. Our dinner for 5 was well over $250 and yet you must pay for parking in their own lot when you arrive. We arrived right on time for our 5:30 reservation and waited for 15 minutes while many others were seated ahead of us. Once seated (mysteriously at a table set for 8), our service was painfully slow. I had to remind the waitress that we did not receive any bread and our kids waited an hour for their kid's meals to arrive. They were literally melting in their chairs. They didn't even care about dessert by the time the meal was done. Food was marginal at best. This was a special night out post Nutcracker that we had been planning for a long time so the disappointment in the experience was huge. Won't be back.

    Was a lovely evening - our waitress and bartender provided excellent service, gave us plenty of room to talk, and the hostess made sure to give us a window seat as requested on the initial reservation to view the Christmas ships parade on lake Union. Dukes is always great!

    Great tasting food and service. However, the portion size of the fish and chips was not commensurate to the price. Tiny piece of cod and a small handful of chips - this was not a full size entree meal!

    The food is pretty good, but also quite expensive and there are parking fees, though we did find post-6pm-free street parking a short walk away. I would only return for the nice location when I again have out-of-town guests.

    Reliably excellent food that is worth paying a small premium for. If you're looking for a quieter experience, ask to be seated away from the bar.
