My wife and I popped in for a drink recently and were somewhat disappointed with the slow decline in the Duke. Unfortunately, we were seated in the attached "solarium" style room, which felt like being at the kids table at a party. We were separated from the rest of the bar, which killed the... read more

I like this place. They have their act together. The service is always good. The bar food quality is also good. The beer is cold. I guess the have the check marks ticked off that you want in a bar. I usually recommend going to this bar when I'm in Kitchener.

Came here for a meeting to discuss a confidential matter with a colleague, after deciding the coffee shop upstairs was too public. Explining to the server what we needed, we were quickly seated in the rear of the separate c"conservatory", a glassed in addition to the otherwise open and dark pub, which at the time of the day was totally...

Staff very accommodating! Didn't realize reservations where required for the evening (very popular band was the entertainment) and the staff members squeezed us into a terrific table. Meal would be described as standard pub fair, simple selections and tasty. Service was prompt and all our needs where attended to. The band "Tea for Four" was terrific, wide variety of music...

One of my two favourite places in Waterloo, Duke's, and Angie's diner next door. I went to both of them pretty much every day for the six days that I was in town. You need go no further! Angie's for brunch or lunch, Duke's for the music and drinks as well as really good burgers and top chicken wings. The... More

Not that big, awkward washroom and coat room, but the regulars did not seem to mind. Small and crowded; convoluted layout, but the happy attentive servers and the jovial atmosphere made up for it. I haven't sampled any food here, just the bar.

Had a great time with about 10 of us last week. Fast attentive service and some great ciders on tap. I have been here a lot through out the years and I just love the atmosphere! Thanks for another fun, inexpensive pub night!

Had dinner here with a large group of fellow conference attendees. Staff made a good job of turning around over 20 orders and I noticed that everybody - bar, kitchen, waiting staff pitched in. Draft beer is fine here, from Guiness (warm) to local Ontario microbrews, but not cheap. Wine choice is basic. Food is traditional pub fare, my burger... More
