Well worth the drive down PCH. The location is perfect and feel as those you a walking into a bit of Malibu history. We had cold beers, fish tacos and a crab salad. Nothing too fancy, but exactly what you want on a sunny lunchtime on holiday. We also spotted some seal lions.

Good food with a great view. Consider going through to the bar and sit outside to enjoy this great location.

The best of this restaurant is eating with a great sea view. Food is average. Service is not bad. Needs a renovation as soon as possible.

Coming here is like a 2 hour vacation to Hawaii! We came on a rainy Sat afternoon and the place was packed. Glad we had reservations. Had a window seat directly looking at the Pacific watching surfers. I ordered the fish bowl which was like Ciopinno only with a Thai based peanut sauce and it was delicious. My husband had... More

This is a family favorite, but over the past few years the menu has become stale and less creative. I'm sure the fish specials feature only the freshest fish due to the restaurants volume, but the Mac parmesan crusted fish just lacks any creativity whatsoever. I realize being part of a chain limits the chef's ability to offer new dishes,... More

We had lunch at this Malibu eatery and were very happy with our visit. It was ocean side. The service in the bar area was initially slow but we opted for a table outside and the experience was great. The bloody Mary's were delish! The views of the foothills and ocean were breathtaking for a first time visitor. If we... More

Although these Boston, MA surfers were in search of surf (boo hoo it was flat), we were so glad we stopped at Duke's Malibu for an early dinner (tried the pulled pork, bbq angus burger, mahi mahi sandwich, and fish and chips. All delish! But we really loved watching the sunset and looking at the old photos of surfing legend... More

On a busy night you might need a reservation, if you go early enough during the day you can get a deal, but no matter what the food will be tasty. The salad bar is so good, the fish and chips, delectable, the Hula pie worth the calories.
