This was our second visit to this resort in less than a week. The first visit was to the resort's Legend restaurant which was a great experience. Duke's is a bar and restaurant. The food and service were beyond reproach. The resort itself is full of history because it was originally built as the training facility for the San Francisco... More

I can see why "The Duke" came here often. The ambience was wonderful. The hotel hosts guests for the soccer crowd using the numerous soccer fields for practice and competition. The chicken and pasta dish one night was a southwestern treat. The bar features several tv screens showing random highlights of simultaneous sporting events commercial free. Service was excellent.

Fabulous food and fabulous service. Really nice people work there and the food is totally delicious (we had two meals there in one day). Loved it. Arizona/John Wayne dining theatre and also very appropriately Southwest.

We've eaten here several times when down to Casa Grande for the winter and in the summer too when visiting. Although I don't golf, this course looks amazing The pub, The Duke, is a great place for lunch. The decor is western, celebrating the era of John Wayne's westerns, plus the flavor of Arizona. Large glass wall overlooks patio and... More

I can only give this three stars because we only had apps. The quesedilla and onion rings, they were both good. Our waitress and waiter were friendly, they were not busy the afternoon we were there. It was not as rustic as I thought it would be from reading other reviews. We would take our friends there next time.

My wife and I live in Casa Grande and often go to Duke's. It's one of our favorite places in town. Whether for drinks, dinner, watching a ballgame, or just hanging out with friends, it's a relaxing place to be. The staff is always friendly and attentive. Be sure to catch the memorabilia about John Wayne (he used to hang... More

Love the Stella Artois on tap :) ! We both had the signature Calamari appetizer and I had the steak salad while Deb had the Desert Shrimp Salad. The salads are huge, with generous portions of shrimp and steak. We love the FGR and Duke's is a great hangout when at the resort.
