We started with oyster & a deviled egg with crab. Delicious, fresh & nice portion of crab. We did the 3 course restaurant “week”. A choice of 4 different chowders. I did the seafood chipping with a tomato base. My friend chose the Cajun corn chowder. Both were delicious. Next was a choice of 3 salads. We both chose the spinach. Delicious, traditional & generous. We both had the crab un cake. Fresh & a generous portion. You’d think we’d be bursting at the seams. We were but had to have the nut free, gluten free carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. We rolled out of there fat & happy. Our server was kind & gracious. Highly recommended!!

Our server was friendly, informative and kind! The lobster chowder was rich & delicious. The portions are large so a one piece fish & chips would have been plenty. The facility was clean & inviting.

Super mediocre experience here. No idea why they have such good reviews. The fish and chips were for sure frozen from the supermarket. Deviled eggs had almost no flavor to them. Good atmosphere, but was looking for a good meal which we did not get.

First time dining out since the beginning of Covid and this place was a real treat. The food was delicious (stuffed salmon) and served timely and the server was a delight. It was my birthday and so we received a comped desert. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Also Duke's is very conscious about Covid guidelines so it felt like a safe place to eat out. Would definitely return to try more of their menu.

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.
