Great food and service. The only place for chowder in Seattle/Tacoma area.
Great place for our 45th anniversary with friends..
We are longtime diners at Dukes in many locations and loved it. As always, the food is amazing and the service was attentive.
We've never been to Dukes so i made a reservation to suprise my husband. We sat outside. Our dinner was amazing. The clam chowder was to die for. We're excited to come back for lunch for chowder and and drink. The atmosphere was great. Our waiter Jordan was so awsome hope to see him again. Nice job Dukes see you soon.
I love this location. However sitting by the exit to outside dining was not a preferred spot. I will be more specific when I make reservations next time.
Excellent birthday dinner at Duke's! It was the first really good restaurant experience we've had since pre-covid. With so many businesses struggling to hire quality staff, dining out has been spotty at best with disappointing food/service often spoiling a night out....but not last night at Duke's. Our server was spot on the entire meal, checking in often to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. The food was really great, and no long waits in between courses. Great job Dukes.....the meal and service were really memorable...and thanks for comping our dessert....that was so nice and unexpected.
The food here is so good. The chowder is amazing. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. My favorite are the stuffed and puffed prawns. The coconut shrimp are a yummy appetizer.
Great service and very tasty food. Had a great seat under umbrella on the deck.
We have been going to Duke's for years, a treat for ourselves & our out of towners. there. It has never disappointed. The food & service is always outstanding. And the view is amazing, always a most excellent experience.
We had an amazing time! Our waitress was so friendly and caring. Can’t wait to go back!
Dinner was good but thought it a bit pricey for fish n chips. Hubby had nut crusted halibut and was pretty small for the price.
Amazing service by Tara, she took excellent care of us, out celebrating my birthday. A gem Duke’s was able to retain after Pacific Grill shut down. Side note-I know turning over tables after all the lock-downs has been a priority for many restaurants… to the point of rudeness, at times. However, you NEVER feel that at Duke’s. Not only is their service fantastic, their food is delicious. Lots of gluten free options too. It has become one if my favorite Tacoma restaurants.
Our server, Matt, was fantastic!!!!
Our service was great, the food was excellent. We asked that the outside speaker, which was right in front of us, be turned down, and it was. We were eating outside.
We dined out on the patio and service was excellent. Daughter had the Stuffed & Puffed Prawns, I had the 3 course meal with Caesar salad chowder & Crab un cake. Husband had 3 course meal with Fish & chips. Dukes food is the best and we always have left overs for later.
Ideal place for business or friends/family/date, you could get a table with privacy while not standing out. The service is excellent. The experienced staff would not interrupt your conversation or make you feel rushed. Recommend the New England chowder and Dungeness crab un-cake.
We have been eating at Duke's on Ruston way for 16 years, the service has always been good, the food consistently good and the fact that the seafood is always sustainably sourced. Always a friendly atmosphere. Love the restaurant.
We were on the deck around 9 pm to catch the last of the sunset. Heaters kept us comfortable. The crabcake was light, not oily, the sauce scrumptious. Halibut was cooked perfectly. My grilled shrimp salad was colorful, with a well-balanced vinegrette. Shrimp a bit overcooked. The marionberry pie dessert is most definitely for two and was an outstanding finish.
This was my mom's 88 birthday. They acknowledged and tried to make her feel special. Thank you!
Jordan was amazing!
Very good food! Everything is fresh! Service was excellent.
Amazing drinks and food as always. Duke's never disapoints!
Service great. Food tasted great as usual, but portions on our salads were visibly smaller than in the past. Prices significantly higher - seafood has been increasing, but the three item meal is now $39.90 - an expensive lunch, especially for smaller portions. The clam chowder is still the star of their menu, even at $12.90 for a small bowl.
Excellent restaurant manager and wait staff. Will return
My recent lunch with a friend visiting from Colorado was a great experience in every way! Service was excellent, from front desk to servers. We ate outside on the deck with a wonderful view. Our food was excellent and delivered very promptly by multiple servers all at once. Beautiful, warm and cozy ambience, gorgeous view, attentive service and fabulous food…what’s not to love?!? Duke’s never disappoints- I continue to be a fan.
Great service and food in the dining room!
Prefect place for our 37th anniversary
Little on the $$$$, but well worth it
First time in Tacoma and Duke’s was recommended. It did not disappoint. Food was very good and served promptly, service from Brittany was wonderful!
We all three enjoyed our meals. I was a bit uncomfortable where I was sitting with sun beating down on me, but we still preferred the outside for dining for multiple reasons. The service was a bit slow, but our waitress was excellent - enthusiastic about the food they served, kind, apologized for delays and attentive enough for us overall. I suspect they are a bit short staffed as everyone seems to be these days. Duke's always meets expectations and is in a great location.
We love going to Duke’s. Great service and food. Always!
Great service and great food! The only issue was parking and I realized it hat no fault of the restaurant. Great experience overall.
I’ve found that if you show up at your scheduled time and not before, you’re treated pretty well. Food and drinks are always good. The nectarine mule is perfect for a summer refresher.
A fine place to meet Mom on a mild and sunny summer Sunday morning. We sat outside on the deck under an umbrella. Our server was friendly and efficient. The fish was super fresh and perfectly prepared.
Great experience and great food! Came here to celebrate our engagement while looking over the water, did not disappoint!
First time dining at Dukes, great service and lots of menu items to chose from.
We got a table by a window with a magnificent view of the bay as the sun was lighting up the opposite shore and the boats. The waiters were amazing! Our cocktails were perfect. I had the Thai Ginger Halibut and it was fantastic! I highly recommend it. My wife really enjoyed her Rockfish Taco. We shared a dessert - Marionberry Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream, and it was decadent! It was an extremely enjoyable experience and we look forward to returning for another great meal.
Cocktail was about room temperature
Wasabi sauce had minimal kick - aio
