Best fish tacos

OK - I love fish tacos & could eat them everyday when I'm in Maui. Duke's serves my absolute favorite. The fish is flaky but not dry & seasoned just right. The flour tortillas are fresh & the cabbage slaw makes everything so delicious. The beach view & service is amazing. Drinks are great and are... read more

The fresh fish at this restaurant is excellent!! I tried the A'U as well as a type of Mahi Mahi. The service is very good, friendly and accomodating to our group of 15. It's definitely been our go-to place for Lunch. The view is great too! I highly recommend this restaurant for fresh fish, salads, burgers, etc.

We had 6 meals at Duke's during a 15 night stay in Maui. From breakfast to dinner everything was delicious. The staff are great and the location is amazing. Best to make reservations for the dining room or show up early to the casual or bar areas as the place is almost always busy. Never feels crowded despite the crowds... More

We celebrated my wife's 60th birthday there and it was a wonderful experience. The food, the service and beautiful Maui sunset made it a most memorable night. I had a daily seafood special and it was to die for. The wait staff was very busy, but all took time to join in and sign Happy Birthday to my wife.

We had reservations, not really necessary. Weird set up with the 2 sides. We ate on the dinner side. Food was good, but expected better ahi for being locally caught. Nothing to complain about, but nothing to write home about either. We had calamari and a wonton type appy. My husband had the special, which was 2 catch of the... More

Nice place. Very convivial. Good choices on the menu. The prices are quite right. The coconut lobster bisque was way too salty. My ahi tuna steak was cooked to perfection but lacked a little sauce or something. The creme brûlée trio was very good. Don't share it though, you'll want it all for yourself! The waiter was a native from... More

Their burgers are to die for. I had two burgers there and both were exceptionally amazing. Cooked just the way you want them. The fries are also out of this world, i could eat them all day and not get tired of them.

We went late afternoon so avoided long lines and sat on the patio. We didn't have the dinner menu to cut prices and enjoyed the ambience complete with music. Would definitely go again.
