Duke’s is a tribute to Cayman’s abundant Seafood and Beach BBQ culture. Duke’s provides an authentic culinary accompaniment to Cayman’s endless summer – the freshest seafood everyday straight from our local fisherman and the island’s best smoky, tender, BBQ ribs. Refresh yourself with one of our exotic cocktails or the beer from our island’s microbrewery. Duke’s is the place to satisfy the craving that comes with sun, surf, and sand in Cayman.Family friendly and always fun!!Cheers

We picked Duke's based on the restaurant's barbecue reputation. We had an enjoyable dinner. Two of us had the pulled pork sandwich and although the sandwiches were good, both of us found the sauce to be too sweet for our tastes. Everyone who ordered ribs raved about how good they were.

The food was good, your typical beach food. But I wouldn't say outstanding. The service it's great, but I just wasn't impressed with the food. I did ate there three times because it was the closer place to our condo but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. They need improvements, including adding some fresh seafood and... More

Two of us had the pulled pork sandwich and although the sandwiches were good, both of us found the sauce to be too sweet for our tastes. Everyone who ordered ribs raved about how good they were. We would definitely give it another try.

It's known for having some of the best BBQ on SMB, and it was a great place for lunch. Rotisserie chicken, short ribs, crab cakes- it was all fresh and delicious. Cold beer on draught, service was very quick. Great place to keep it casual while visiting SMB.

Stopped by after diving and they were having a barbecue buffet, so we ordered that. The tri tip was soooooo good, I kept going back! They had several different meats to choose from, ribs, sausage, etc. Great outdoor seating, good drinks, left stuffed, what more can I say:-)

Food was good but it was hard to enjoy with all the flies buzzing around our meal. Felt like the cocktails were overpriced and watered down! Server was good. Paid a lot more then it was worth.

I do love the outdoor seating! The food on the other hand is typical bar food. Lots of fried dishes which don't appeal to me. I ordered the fish tacos which had a great flavor but just not much fish. My husband ordered the ribs which he did enjoy. The bartender, Daniel has his very own secret blend for a... More

If there is 1 item on the me I that you must try it would be the crabby fries. The calamari salad and mahi mahi tacos were also good bit those crabby fries though.....

Went here for dinner, food was very good. Great atmosphere and staff was very attentive, which was hard to find on the island while we visited, you had to ask for refills but not here, he stayed on top of it and even got us to go drinks. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!!

My wife and I ate at Duke's one night on our honeymoon stay at Grand Cayman. The food was great and had a nice local feel! What was better than the food was the service! Chris was our server and he made it a great experience! He went over a beyond and was very personable. This was the most memorable... More
