Birthday early due to closure
Had a mid-afternoon meal. Oh my God Cod tacos were great. Service was also very great. Restaurant was not crowded and good distance between diners, felt very safe.
My boyfriend and I came here for our six year anniversary and had a wonderful time! Everything was lovely, the drinks, appetizer, the chowder (of course) and the desert! I hope we’ll be able to come back again soon after the lockdown lifts.
Seafood is very good. Appetizer portion size a bit ridiculous for the price
We both ordered the halibut. Mine was crusted with macadamia nuts, his was stuffed with cream cheese and crab. Both were outstandng!
We have enjoyed the lovely setting and great food at Duke's for the past 14 years. The food and service are always fantastic. No restaurant in Tacoma can equal Duke's!
Everything was great but we were surprised that prices increased substantially....$19.00 for one (albeit large) fish taco with a 2 tablespoon side of green salsa and a half cup of tortilla chips.
Best wait staff anywhere. Best clam chowder.
Our server was fantastic, energetic & passionate, we really enjpyed our special occasion and will be back very soon!
Food was very good, other than the clam chowder, which was salty, compared to what we've enjoyed in the past. Fish ) I also would have liked a larger glass of water, or a refill. I think it was about a 6oz glass, but even 8 oz would have been nice. Otherwise, we once again enjoyed our meals and being at Dukes. THANK YOU for being open and able to provide the great service and amazing food that we've enjoyed over the years.
Had a very good dinner at Duke's. My friend and I had one of their specials, gnocchi with crab and shrimp. Service was excellent. View was lovely and we even had a heron perched on the rail outside our window!
really great service and food and really enjoyed the view
Excellent service and excellent meal! The eating area is clean and we had good separation from other diners. Our waitress, Brittni, was exceptional! It was a very relaxing and enjoyable time.
The food was EXCEPTIONAL! Staff were attentive and very friendly! We will definitely visit again, soon! Thank you!
We were tired of COVID prison and decided to get out. We like the Tacoma waterfront and because it was a typically cool and gloomy day chowder sounded good. What better place than Dukes for chowder? We ended up having a full lunch and were very satisfied with our meals.
If you want a great place for seafood with a great view Dukes fills the bill!
Very nice outside dining on a Sunday at 3pm. No worries about getting infected with the virus. Great view of the harbor.
My waitress was amazing! Incredible service!! Food was delicious.
Little pricey but amazing fresh food and great service
Best chowder around but you had better have deep pockets.
Excellent restaurant. We had a blast! We’ll be back.
The scallop and squash ravioli was outstanding! also had a Manhattan which was very tasty
This is one of our favorite restaurants. Always great food great service great drinks 🍸
STAFF GREAT, BEST SERVICE I HAVE HAD IN A LONG TIME!!!!
Thank you Duke's for partnering with Open Table. It's reassuring to know we have a table ready without waiting in the lobby or outside. Chowder was amazing, both Salmon dishes were fantastic and personally I love the gluten free carrot cake!
Excellent in every way except they only serve a bad off brand “natural” soda, we need coke or Pepsi products please
Overpriced and mediocre quality.
I had calamari appetizer that was $13 - fit in the palm of my hand. 6 pieces the size of french fries. I had the fish and chips - just average and $24.
My wife had $12 Lobster chowder that was so salty she sent it back and tried the clam chowder instead - also very salty. She had stuffed shrimp $26 - quite tasty.
We will not be back - Wildfin's just down the street beats Duke's in every area - quality, ambience, view and value.
The food was amazing. The menu was great. And the service was outstanding!
The service was fantastic! The food has never disappointed.
Our visit was great. We had a comfortable seat on the deck with lots of fresh air and a fantastic view. The deck heaters provided plenty of warmth on a crisp October evening. Our food was great, and our server was efficient, friendly and fun. Our table recommends the Grapefruit Nirvana with Rockfish Tacos, and Bloody Mary with the "Un"Chopped Salad.
Our Anniversary dinner. We had a wonderful time.
Great food and wonderful help reserving a six person table from front desk staff Kaitlyn and wonderful table service from server Jordan and also a shout out to our server buddy Wade for stopping by to say hello!
First time in, and wow! This place has amazing food. Our server was very attenuative. We loved the crab dip appetizer and the award winning chowder. Highly recommend and will go back!
My husband and I were very impressed by the measures Duke's has taken to keep everyone safe. Everyone was masked as required. Service was friendly and attentive. Food was awesome as always. We enjoyed our anniversary at this favorite spot and will be back! (We have only dined out occasionally during Covid, this experience made us comfortable with doing more of it...as long as it's at DUKE'S! (We dined at Ruston Way.)
I always give Dukes 5 stars because they are great! However, I felt this visit wasn't up to par but still 4 stars. The food didn't seem to be quite as delish as usual. But will still def be back :)
overall wonderful experience - food, service and amenities esp during Covid
Service and food was excellent. Best chowder in the Northwest.
Duke's on Ruston is always top notch. I was surprised to see they haven't given up their happy hour, which isn't as expansive as it used to be, but still very good. Courtney, our server, was attentive from beginning to end and fun to talk to. I appreciate how hard they're working to keep the environment clean. Definitely still one of my go-to restaurants in Tacoma.
Don’t usually write reviews. In town on business staying in close hotel. Made reservations days ahead and confirmed on the day. Arrived exact time 630. Two of us. Hostess led us to an open section in the back without the ocean view that had two rectangular tables for 6. I immediately shared that wasn’t going to work for us (for obvious reasons). Plenty of open booths by the window as well as others with views. Hostess acted out off by our request to please sit at a more appropriate table. Her job is to please not act p’d off. We ended up at an average booth out of the way. On a positive note, our waiter was fabulous which made up for the unprofessional hostess. The food was actually just average. Expected more after visiting the website. All in all, was not the greatest dining experience.
