The Duce is a one-of-a-kind restaurant, bar, event venue, retail store and gym. This sprawling complex is truly unique in all of the things it offers its guests. Visitors don't even have to show up to eat, as The Duce has a 1960s inspired gym that people can work out in as well as a retail store full of retro-inspired gym clothing.
The Duce is all about history. The bar where guests can order one of the hand-crafted cocktails has been painstakingly lifted from the Black Orchid Bar where old Rat Pack members Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. used to drink. On the other side of the building is a set of bleachers taken from a nearby historic high school and behind those visitors can play a game of corn hole, shuffleboard, foosball, ping pong or pool. The Duce can also be rented out for private events like weddings.

We went for Mother’s Day so we knew it would be kind of crazy but it was unbearably loud with a DJ playing at loud levels. We were told it would be 90 minutes to get food-people had reservations so I don’t know why they weren’t better prepared. After about 15 minutes we just gave up and found a better place to go for our group. We’ve been before and liked the food but definitely won’t go back again on a holiday.
Nearly a 2 hour wait on a Mother’s Day Sunday; made reservations but it didn’t matter. Wouldn’t have made reservations if I knew we would wait 2 hrs and also that they would be out of what they are known for
Went for Mother’s Day. Food was great, but took a really long time. Nobody complained because it’s to be expected on Mother’s Day. There was a bar and the fam played corn hole. I’d go back, but probably fat might for drinks.
Best mommas day. Such a fun place for all ages. French toast was killer fir sure.

We had such an amazing experience with the SoulPower Band and Lailani. Thank you The Duce! ✌️❤️🙏
We had such a great time visiting Soul Power Band. We’ll be back! Thank you Duce!
They always have good food and drinks, but when we got there they said they weren’t doing reservations (even though we reserved through Open Table)
Pros-For starters the place is cool eclectic looking.
The food was not tasted at all. Each dish was off period.
The mac and cheese bites- over cooked
The onion dip- flavorless
The turkey burgers- zero flavor
Bar tender- serving and making drinks with a bloody bandage on his fingers that obviously needed to be changed.
Service- sucked only came around every 45min and there were roughly 20 people there that day.
It was my first time there. My sister & I really enjoyed ourselves! The food and drinks were good and the band (Soul Power) was fantastic! We’ll definitely be back!
Definitely an experience! Live band and a boxing match all in one night! Drinks are made with care and the ambiance is just fun!
Great environment however it’s a bit of a cluster for a large party because everything is self serve. Took about a half an hour for 10 people to get drinks & another 40 to order dinner ... & a lot of the food was “unavailable”. Other than that the food was great, the kids had a blast, drinks were delicious.
Super fun and interesting place! Neat patio!
First time we visited and we thought it was super fun.
terrific waitress and ambiance.
Food was good too!!
Great place to take someone from out of town and taste a DDD restaurant!
Paid for VIP seating, were sat right in front the if the band (so loud we couldn’t hear each other speak— great band though). However we had a pretty terrible view of the burlesque show which is what we came for. Our server also stopped coming to our table once the burlesque show started. Owner had lots of friends there who got priority over us. I understand taking care of your own but you’ll never get new customers that way. Overall a let down, which is a bummer bc it had a lot of potential.
