Nice place, but disappointed. Food was fair but very overpriced. Service was fair, nothing to brag about. Side note: most of the people were very underdressed. Couldn't tell some of the customers from street people. People in general need to take a little more pride in their appearance.

The food and service were very good! The outside deck was a great place to have lunch! The dessert birthday treat was a plus!! Just think Duke’s prices are a little high!! Their clam chowder is the best, but $12.90 for a small bowl???

Great to finally be back inside dining and very spread out amongst other diners. You did not feel that they were near. Very nice!

Unfortunately, the home office has not supported the restaurants well. The new happy hour menu is almost impossible to understand with price references that are general. What is $1 off a beer mean when you cannot tell what is being served or the price.

I really hate to complain about one of my favorite places, but when I pulled up the HH menu for Daniel's Broiler next door it was clear, clean, and offered better value. So was the Ruth's Chris menu and we went there after having one beverage.

Delicious food that came out quickly. We came during Happy Hour and the prices were fair. Highly recommend the crab dip and calamari steak strips! And of course, the classic Chowder is a can't miss!

Visiting the city & Duke’s was suggested by a local. It did not disappoint! The view was breathtaking, the food was phenomenal, and the service was perfect. We had a small mishap with our drinks but the manager was quick to make right and apologize for the inconvenience. From the managers hospitality, to the view and delicious food, I highly recommend!

Great to be out in a restaurant again. Love this location. Though we thought it was a bit more expensive we didn’t care just happy to go out!! Our server was excellent. Only disappointment was 2 people in our group got the cioppino and even though they liked it they were surprised there was no shell fish in it. Thanks to Dukes for hanging in there!

It was alright. Atmosphere was great and there was soft music playing. But I feel like you are being charged more for the view than for the food you eat. Food prices do. It compare to what you get.

Some of my favorite dishes are the Rockin' Rockfish Tacos, Dungeness Crab Stuffed Just for the Halibut, and of course their Award Winning Clam Chowder! They have set up their restaurant for socially distant indoor or outdoor dining. Great service. Awesome view of Lake Union!

The Washington mandated outdoor or take out only dining made this a frigid event in January. The people who had tables under the heaters seemed fine but we froze our tails. The food and service was very good though. I do think their clam chowder was top notch and would order it again. I had a little trouble with the fish tacos that were so big that I had to eat it with a fork. It was a big lovely piece of cod cooked perfectly but I think I'd rather have a size I can eat like a regular taco. My wife had the salmon it was also very good. I had a taste and thought the sauce was a bit on the sweet side for my liking.

Everything about their outdoor seating was great! Warm, spacious, safe. Also a great view. The food was tasty, just wish there were a little more variety of options, but during COVID times- more than you could ask for.

Server was very cordial, however, forgot to bring us our napkins/cutlery even after the bread was served - so no way to butter it.
timing of dishes way off. We were half way on our appetizers, when the main course was
delivered. I sent my main back so I could finish the appetizers. When main was served, it obviously had not been kept warm - tepid cioppino is not very tasty.
Dessert was very good - marion berry pie.

We go to Duke's at least once a month (I've been twice this month) usually for happy hours, but sometimes for lunch. Food is wonderful, service great and the view can't be beat. They have done a great job with social distancing and all the other co-vid 19 protocols. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Having a salad only for $25 isn’t worth it to me.
