Had the sliders while my wife had the PA Dutch Burger(Pretzel Burger). Both were very good! The service was spotty on a Sunday night with not many people. The server acted like customers were a bother.

Service was extremely slow. Our waitress made a mistake every time she brought us something. The wait staff all took time to eat enormous plates of their own food as a break rather than serve their waiting customers. While the servers dined together, they talked smack about the manager(s) and each other while using foul language. Drinks were watered down... More

Stopped by on a slow Thurs. Nite and won't go back. I love dining "al fresco" and the ambiance didn't disappoint however, after being seated, I (solo traveler) sat on my dining swing for 1/2 hr w/o a server or any recognition I existed. I was forgotten about after finally ordering a drink, after ordering my entree, after receiving it,... More

Dukes was recommended by our Inn owners and it was the perfect place to eat as it provided a casual atmosphere and plenty of menu variety at a reasonable price. I had the fish. Tacos, my sons had a burger and fettuccine Alfredo and my husband had grilled chicken salad. All were very good. Service good and the portions generous.

Dukes used to be called the Gingerbread Man, way back when. Since it became known as Dukes, the food has always been generous in proportion, hot, and well prepared. This is an open floor plan "sports bar" that is really more for families. I have been here on dates with myhusband, lunch with my (ex)Boss, and with my children and... More

This was our first time at Duke's. We were looking for a bite on a Sunday evening and most restaurants in this area area closed at this time. Duke's was not only open, they were packed. Despite how busy they were, the service was excellent! The food was good featuring a pub style menu, burgers, wings, pizza, and such. We... More

Family from the area took us to Duke's for the first time. Nice waterfront seating and extensive menu...almost TOO extensive. I would rather choose from a few items that they do very well. The crab topped pretzel was suggested to me, I didn't care for it, fishy cheap crab with cheese is not a good combo for me. Most of... More

My family went to Duke's because it was recommended by our hotel, which is right next door. We received a 10% off coupon and we always like the idea of being able to walk after having a couple of beers. The ambiance of the place is okay. Nothing special. Service was slow at first and it was obvious our waiter... More
