Our server Jenike (sp?) was fantastic. Super friendly and made us feel safe and comfortable for our first outdoor dinning experience.

Thanks for being open and we’re happy we were able to support duke’s!

Great experience at the new home of this restaurant!! Food was exceptional and served quickly! Service was fantastic! Never had to ask for anything to include refills! Continued service was polite and never interrupted a table conversation. Recommend eating or enjoying a drink here!!

Dining was available inside and out though no outdoor tables were available when we arrived. The staff was exceptionally gracious, polite and friendly. The tasting flight of soups was excellent and showcased all four chowders. The stuffed halibut lakes personality, but the macadamia encrusted halibut was far tastier. The fish tacos were good and service was wonderful. Well have to try some other menu items at Dukes.

Really like Duke's new location. Our service was efficient and friendly, cocktails and wine all great, oysters tasty and fresh (though pricey), quality bread, excellent salads with well-prepared seafood additions, and totally-yummy marionberry pie to top it all off. Dukes does it all well!

Consistently good, and the new location is very nice, but 3 for lunch = $130.00 ???
And it was no alcohol or fancy dishes, and no dessert.

Great food that we expect from Duke's. Service was responsive and helpful. Location is awesome for city views. Recommend for locals and tourists.

Only issues were that Halibut dish was expensive $40 and Deck seating had lots of Spiders on the rail.

We dined on the lower patio. The ambiance was okay, for a parking lot conversion to accommodate a few more patrons during this COVID crisis. The service and the food were good.

We had a very special time on the deck. I enjoyed a delicious crab cake with a lot of avocado salad and my husband had the salmon sliders. It was a perfect early dinner for us and the sun and ambience made it a memorable date.

It is disappointing to have to pay for parking with no validation. The view from the deck however is great. We found the food, while good for any restaurant, slightly subpar to the same items we order at the Bellevue Dukes. We will be sticking with the Bellevue location, where we experience five star food and service consistently...and don’t need to pay for parking.

You need to serve coke and Pepsi. I like that you are supporting a local product but you also need to offer what customers want. Have them all and let the customer choose. Not you. Food was delicious. The local cola was just OK. I probably would not order it again. Service was really good.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday on the deck. Everything was lovely. The food was delicious as always. Protocols were followed and we felt very safe. What a great view with all of the boats in the marina. We haven’t been dining out for quite some time and we really enjoyed it.

I absolutely love Duke’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. And so I booked my birthday dinner there a few days ago. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. So I was very happy to see outside dining and tables with good distancing. And it was just me. Just a small celebration. And my birthday was acknowledged but my experience just left me sad. I felt like no one cared that I was there. I’m in the middle of serious medical treatment so who knows how many more birthdays I’ll have. I just expected to be valued as a diner and person.

And to be clear. The food was amazing as always. The server was not rude. Service was a bit slow but no big deal. However it was just dismissive. No one asked if I wanted dessert. The place was not very crowded at all. The server spent time with folks at other tables nearby. But I was just left alone. Waiting. Like my presence didn’t matter.

If I make it to next year, I’ll choose someplace else.

Everything was pretty good, but a little subpar for $45 per person lunch without drinks.
