Dinghy of Clam Chowder
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.
it was so nice to have happy hour at the restaurant during this crazy time.
Best clam chowder bread bowl! Kind and helpful staff.
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.
It was a little cold in restaurant. All doors opened and several windows.
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.
Old school seafood in an updated clean outdoor space. Great shrimp and crab.. amazing chowder
Having a salad only for $25 isn’t worth it to me.
Going to Duke’s sitting on their balcony and having dinner was a wonderful respite from the monotony
of Covid. The food and service were spot on.
Crab cakes were overrated and my dinner was served tepid
Our server was a little out of line when we ordered cocktails, demanding to know who was driving.
We got to enjoy a yummy dinner on the patio. Fortunately there were heaters to keep us warm! We had a fun,energetic,but not overbearing waiter and loved the food. I would recommend the stuffed pesto shrimp!
We are long time patrons of Dukes at South Lake Union, and are pleased to find they are maintaining their excellent standards for food and service even under pandemic restrictions. The covered deck is airy but warmed by radiant heaters and we were quite comfortable despite January weather. The menu is a little smaller but still has LOTS of choices and all my favourite dishes.
Very very disappointed. I wish they had enough heater to keep their dining customer warm, knowing that everyone has to dine outside due to restrictions. When I choose this restaurant to celebrate my daughter’s bday, i did my homework, I checked the menu and the pricing and pretty much was just looking forward to our experience. We are aware that we will be seated outside, so we were all wearing proper outfit to keep us warm. But the table we were seated at doesnt have a portable heater and when we asked for one they said they dont have enough, I was worried the whole time for my kids. I was looking forward to eat the clam chowder, I literally only have two minutes to enjoy it coz after that, the chowder got cold because again we were outside and temperature was low 40’s. The rest of the food came and we’re all freezing at this time so we never really get to enjoy our experience.
Great location and one of the best outdoor dining experiences I have had of late.
Over-priced for medicore food and drinks. Then you still have to pay for parking in a pandemic.
Service was great and the view was very nice. Food was soso and not enough for price
This was my first time to this new location which is an upgrade from their last location. Lunch with a friend on their covered and heated patio with a view of Lake Union was wonderful - it was therapeutic just to be dining out! We were well taken care of by Gwen and all the staff - they were very attentive without hovering. Chowder, crab cake sandwich, rockfish tacos, desserts - all excellent. I had the carrot cake - scrumptious and not too sweet.
Be prepared to pay a nominal fee for parking.
The deck was warm and all staff was great! Only complaint was the table next to us was three ladies who were extremely loud.
Clearly going to any place during COVID, with the ability to only enjoy outdoor seating is difficult for any restaurant. However, they did a GREAT job. It was a very rainy and cold weekend, I was worried we wouldn't be warm, they did a GREAT job with it. They have outdoor heaters that keep you feeling pretty good. I would always recommend to cover up.
Love having a nice atmosphere to have lunch or dinner. Service was great. Food was great!
Great wait staff but truly horrible food. Out of four of us... not one person thought their meal was good.
Yummy food with a view and heated outdoor seating!
We appreciated the wonderful outdoor seating. It was warm and the service and food perfect! We had a "sense" of normal!
Duke’s Lake Union location is very nice. The staff are professional, nice, and personable. The clam chowder is to die for! The calamari appetizer was also delicious.
The food was not worth the price. Flavorless. Small portions. Tough, hard bread. We spent over $100 on food that we didn't finish eating and that was not good. Service was trash. We had children and people sitting around us were cursing and be inappropriate. We couldn't get out fast enough. Never again will we return and hopefully other families read this and don't waste their money like we did.
Outdoor dining, local owners and a known commodity (we eat here often) was the reason we chose to eat at Duke's
It was a great night to eat outside, albeit from being cold, but Duke's had great heaters that really keep us warm.
The food was excellent, especially the soup in the bread bowl! Perfect for a cold night.
We ate at Duke's Lake Union on December 23rd and as usual, the food and service were
very good. The view overlooking the water was also very nice. Although it was a sunny day and Duke's had heaters on their outdoor patio, it was still a bit uncomfortable. If you
are looking for fresh and delicious seafood, Duke's is the place to go. Unfortunately, I
think we will wait until indoor dining is allowed once again or the weather warms up.
They were very understanding when I got stood up. The chicken sandwich was yummy, which made it worth the trip.
I had the Salmon Caesar an it was perfect. My wife had the Patty Duke Crab brioche with Lobster Bisque very Yum... My favorite use to be the Blueberry goat cheese Salmon no longer on the menu. I have never had a bad or even close to bad meal at Dukes.
The deck was airy and plenty warm with the propane heaters on a cold night.
For it being outdoor dinning, the restaurant still managed to make a great experience. It was in the low 50 degrees and it did not feel old out all there their outdoor heaters. The food is always on point and the service was excellent.
Food and service was fantastic! Looking forward to our next visit
The people at Duke's are always great. They were especially nice in the COVID world.
During this time, only outdoor seating is allowed per Covid-19 state rules. Duke's on Lake Union has an excellent covered deck with heaters overhead, a nice view of Lake Union, and of course excellent seafood which we appreciate is only wild and sustainable. The special sourdough they offer is to die for good. The service was good and we had an excellent date night here.
The food was absolutely delicious. The chowder truly is one of the best around of the not the best. Our waiter was very attentive and catered to all of our needs. There was a table near us that was kind of loud but the staff had nothing to do with it. Overall a great experience.
We very much enjoyed our outdoor dining experience; was actually quite cozy w/ the outdoor heaters. The staff wiped down chairs/tables prior to seating new customers, so we felt safe. The food and service were excellent. Great experience.
Great outdoor experience and patio ! Support our restaurants!
Given the COVID restrictions, Dukes did a great job making us feel welcome, provide a good experience and service.
Really great service, delicious food. Really liked our wait person, we've had her before and she is great. Great outdoor dining due to Covid so appreciate that we can continue to go out and dine safely. Thanks for your service.
Great food and service.
