First time in the changed location on SLU. Love it. Food was great. Adam, our server, was suberb--friendly, efficient, and attentive. He was even able to tell us that the locale was the former Rusty Pelican from years ago. Great memories.

Good food and great service, but difficult parking. Also, lunch items were high-priced for lunch.

Excellent dinner. Had the crab salad and added shrimp and scallops. Very generous portions of the crab, salad dressing was a nice touch. Had the homemade berry pie for dessert, delicious. Overall, excellent place for dinner, I will be back soon!

The food was good. The salad dressing was a little sweet, but everything else pretty good. The cioppino was very average. The grilled salmon Ceasar was very good. The service was excellent.

I really like Dukes. Fair prices for very good food and service. I like the Lake Union location. Make sure you pay for parking. I didn’t know it was a pay lot and came out to a stiff parking ticket. Yikes!

Celebrating friends’ anniversary, dining in a restaurant in over a year, and the first time at the new Duke’s location. What a spectacular view!

Service was amazing! The only reason this isn’t a 5 star review is because the tacos were really disappointing. But, don’t let that stop you from dining there because everything else we tried (chowder, calamari, crab cakes, stuffed salmon) was SO good!

Every dish is simple, flavorful, and packed full of fish and seafood, not fillers.

This location is so much better than the Bellevue location. The water view makes a hand in glove fit.

The crab was good but the fish was all very dry and the waiter was not very attentive, not worth the price

We live in Lynden (by the BC border) and have made numerous trips to the UWMC since 2011 for my wife's cancer treatments and sub-sequent follow-ups, making a custom of having dinner at Duke's at the end of each visit (annually, now) to celebrate another cancer-free trip around the sun (and to avoid the worst of the evening 'rush-hour' traffic before making the 2 hour drive home). Our favorite meal is your clam chowder, bread, salad and a glass of wine... we miss the butterfinger pie, though!

The halibut stuffed with crab was excellent as was the black & blue salad that my uncle loved. He worked in the restaurant business all of his career so it is a treat to take him some place where the standards are so high. The wait staff are impressively attentive.

We’ve been going out regularly since the pandemic eased up and have usually had one problem or another related to quality or service. Or both. Completely understandable since everyone is trying to re-hire and get going again.

Dukes’ experience was excellent from the reservation process, seating, service, quality and value. We would definitely recommend.

Excellent service! Never felt rushed but our server was always available when needed. Though we were on the outdoor terrace, temperature was pleasant and spacing cdc guides. Food was good—and fast. Overall very good experience!

My husband and I have visited all the Duke's Restaurants in King and Pierce Counties. We were happy to finally visit the Lake Union restaurant that was relocated recently. Now, we are looking forward to visiting the new one at Shilshole Bay after it is completed.

In the past, I enjoyed the Patti LaBelle Hamburger which was a special and not on the menu. When we dined at Lake Union yesterday, I was so happy to see the Patti LaBelle Burger as a special back by popular demand. I am hoping to see this burger on the regular menu in the future.

Both diners had chowder--one the clam chowder, one the seafood chowder. No room for improvement. Positively delicious.

Family visited Seattle & always enjoys going to Dukes. Food was tasty & view was unbeatable. Only minor complaint was the tiny table on the patio & the enormous plates. We could barely fit everything on the table & eat without knocking something over m. Smaller plates or larger table for groups of 4.
