    We had a very enjoyable afternoon at Duke's in Tacoma. I would recommend our server Wade. He made the meal so enjoyable for our table of 4. We joined up for Duke's mailing list (something we usually do not do) because of Wade's great service. Food was great, service was fantastic.

    Our server, Emily, was outstanding. Her recommendations were perfect for our group. We loved dining on the outside deck. Two of us had different chowders and salad. Two had different kinds of salmon and we were all happy. Our appetizer of shrimp with pineapple and with spicy aioli was perfect. Drinks were definitely good. We took a takeout meal home for our grandson since he couldn’t join us and it was much appreciated. We now live in Las Vegas but always make it to Duke’s when we are in Tacoma.

    My favorite fish & chips anywhere. “Living in a postcard” view. Wonderful servers and hosts. Best ‘John Daly’ cocktail in the area. Only disappointment was a cioppino-style NW Chowder that had very little seafood (but lots of carrots). Overall experience was really great - an enjoyable evening. Oh, and easy parking too!

    The Cioppino was excellent ... hot and tasty. The thin slices of bread were just right to manage the myriad pieces of seafood. Shrimp were large and fresh. The portion was spot on for a hungry traveler.

    We sat outside even though the weather was cool and cloudy. The outside heaters kept us warm and comfortable. Really nice to be outside. I had the Copper River Salmon with goat cheese and blueberries, which was outstanding! My husband loves the clam chowder.

    Our server Dawn was amazing and very attentive. I had the Pope seafood Cioppiono soup and it’s delicious. Price is a little high for a bowl of soup ($33.90) that does not fill me up so a little disappointment there. Maybe next time I’m here, I’ll try something different….

    This was the first time we'd been back for 2 1/2 years. The cioppino used to be better tasting. The sauce didn't have the same pizazz. The sides I had with the stuffed shrimp (green beans and roasted potatoes), didn't have a freshly cooked taste even though they looked fresh. I was not inspired to eat them.
