    First time at Dukes and it didn’t disappoint. Beautiful view, very friendly staff, and some of the best chowder and crab cakes I have ever had. I’m not from the area. But if I do make my way back towards Tacoma I’ll be returning for sure.

    Delicious salmon. Cooked medium rare as requested and melted in your mouth. Our party of 4 raved over every dish. Chowders, crab, fish, spinach all delectable. Pricey but quality of food and service and view make it worth it!

    Excellent service! Delicious food & drinks. We had coconut prawns and calamari for appetizers, and enjoyed the scallops with ravioli as our main course. The Mai-Tais were yummy & presented in a fun slant highball glass. Our waiter was personable and attentive. I wish our table would have had a view of the water, but I still left happy with the experience.

    We selected the crab cake entre as our appetizer and our main courses were scallops with pumpkin filled ravioli---all were excellent. We started at 4:00 pm so it was not too crowded. Dukes is now our go-to restaurant.

    Duke's is an awesome choice for dining with friends or family. Make sure you check out their happy hour and sign up for their VIP email, which will give you $10-$20 off on your next meal! I highly recommend Dukes for a great evening.

    Took the wife on a late Valentine’s Day dinner. They still had a Valentine’s specific menu and it was amazing. Really good wine, really enjoyed the appetizer, entrees were exactly what we wanted. Dessert was delicious. Waitress was very attentive and had a great attitude. She also wasn’t super pushy or constantly lingering around our table so my wife and I could actually enjoy our meal and conversation.

    The food off the special Valentine's menu (we had the scallops and salmon) was "off the charts" fresh and delicious! Jordan was an excellent server, making this delightful dining experience so very memorable. Management corrected an email club problem I was having an issue with and we are looking forward to our next visit.

    I have always had a great experience at Dukes on the Tacoma waterfront! This time was no different. We often go for special occasions or just a nice date night. This time I took my mom who was visiting from out of town. She had the best salmon of her life. I had an amazing ravioli with a scallop on top of each. The view is amazing at night, and the server was capable and friendly. I'll be back again for the next special occasion!

    Paying $20 for a "large" bowl of clam chowder is horrible. Your lunch prices are now at dinner prices. Unlikely to return.

    Requested a table by the window. I suppose everyone does, why else would you go to a waterfront restaurant? We were seated away from the window in a very poor location. Very disappointing. If the restaurant were extremely busy this treatment would have been somewhat understandable but there were several tables available. It was as if we were being punished for requesting a table by the window. Probably won’t return to this restaurant.

    A great dining experience for a quick lunch with wife and kids. The server Danielle was very friendly and told us quickly about the specials as far as drinks and food is concerned, suggested some favorites that she has, and we were on our way! Everything was amazing and we left very happy. It was my wife’s birthday and we refused dessert but they made sure to send us home with something for her and a candle attached to the box of to go desserts. Love this place, and I will be going back again.

    Wow! What a fantastic seafood restaurant. The view of the water was incredible. The crab cakes were perfectly fried, lightly crispy and packed with sweet crab, hardly any filling. The spicy aioli was the perfect combination. I will definitely visit again.

    Eating at Duke's was an amazing experience. I have a sever nut allergy (and gluten intolerance) - so eating out is always a nightmare for me. Especially when the restaurant has nuts in as many dishes as Duke's has. However, the server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, allergies and abilities of the kitchen. I was able to eat an actual entree (Hannah’s Frenchy Wild Salmon) and not just a salad or bunless burger (IYKYK). My meal was incredible!! Thank you to everyone that takes care of people like me. I hate that it's a thing but appreciate all you do!!

    All of the serving & greeting staff were kind, helpful & professional. Our food was delicious. My husband had Duke’s Favorite Pasta with Blackened Wild Salmon. I had Coco Loco (Coconut) Prawns and the Mixed Greens with Candied Pecans, blue cheese crumbles, & tarragon vinaigrette entree. We were served warm sourdough bread just before our meal arrived. It was a special anniversary dinner and we were served our choice of dessert which we chose the Lopez Island Creamery vanilla ice cream. It was so yummy. And we ordered their carrot cake to go. Our visit was very pleasant & peaceful. I am certainly planning to return. Thank you.
