Description: DUKE'S MALIBU has brought the excitement of Hawaii, Waikiki, and surfing to the mainland USA. The spectacular oceanfront location on the Pacific Coast Highway offers over 300 feet of romantic oceanfront dining and memorabilia from both Hawaii and California surfing history. The Barefoot Bar, looking south into the lights of Santa Monica, is a great spot for drinks and casual food with friends.

Outdoor seating on the water. Great fish tacos are $3 matched with a$3 beer special. The fish tacos are fully loaded with a generous portion of fried or grilled fish. Service is great. The happy hour weekdays also is the best deal around with loads of options. Make sure you head for the barefoot bar with heated patio and great... More

Always enjoy Duke's when we're in Malibu, we stop in for lunch or dinner, this time Happy Hour at the Barefoot Bar and the place was packed on a Sunday afternoon! We enjoyed a couple of new beers they were trying out and had the Tuna appetizer, Macadamia nut crab rolls, and I just don't get the sweet potato fries... More

We stopped by Duke's for lunch today at peak time. They were serving a brunch buffet in the main dining room which we did not want so we headed to the barefoot bar which is a first come, first seated place. We got lucky and there was a great two-top outside overlooking the ocean. We had great service, a great... More

Do yourself a favor, if you need to dine at Dukes, go to the Huntington Beach location. We celebrated my daughters birthday brunch. I had to bus our table three times, constantly ask for coffee and the help was nowhere to be seen most of the time. The food was really good. I was embarrassed, we were a group of... More

Recently returned to Duke's for a family dinner. Service was great, and the fish was exceptional. I particularly appreciate Duke's commitment to cook any of the fish in the way the patron prefers, from macadamia-nut encrusted to simply broiled. All this fine fish (and the trimmings) come at a very reasonable price, especially for a restaurant setting on the beach.... More

By far the best Fish tacos around! Dukes is literally down the canyon from our home, so very easy for us to get to. It's been around for a long time. We love to go down for "Taco Tuesday" whenever we can. The tacos are always delicious, they never disappoint. The price is right as well. We don't eat in... More

Went to Dukes for a late lunch. The view can't be beat. We had reservations in the dining room and decided to eat in the bar instead. The food was awesome! The best calamari we've ever had. The fish tacos were to die for. The waitstaff was super friendly. A great way to spend the afternoon in Malibu.

I love Dukes... Let me preface that. Been to all if them. So when I saw Dukes in Malibu I had to go. The Honolulu one was my favorite date spot in the 90s and I went there just weeks ago again. The food never disappoints. Just good food! Service great.

I bring out of town guests here. It's a great spot for a serene view and a fun drink. The food is more like a bar menu but it is fresh and good. Don't get a salad here--go for the fish and chips and a sugary adult beverage. Sit outside and enjoy the surf and the beautiful view. We were... More

Arriving at noon on a Sunday, the place was just starting to get very busy. I figured based on the location, it would be your run of the mill tourist trap, but was pleasantly surprised. Atmosphere was energetic, everyone was happy, good local beer selection and amazing views from everywhere. Fish tacos were just average. Seemed to be shy on... More
