The Only Place I East Fish

I'm not a fish person, but Duke's Blueberry Salmon is the only way I like it. Also their Award Winning Clam Chowder is great in a bread bowl. They also 4 other kinds of chowder.

Good food, excellent service, nice vibe. Great seafood selection -- love that menu. Reasonable prices. A timely reminder that we have a Duke's in our south end.

They have some amazing chowders. In general their food is very tasty. I think they are over-priced. The service is good.

ALL the staff were helpful and friendly. The chain started in 1973, but it has the feel of an independent restaurant. Great food, great service. Four adults ordered different entrees and everyone loved them. Two of us tried their "New England Clam Chowder" -- really, across the nation? It was second only to a chowder I had in Cambridge.

Great food and drinks at very reasonable prices await the happy hour patrons. Parking is plentiful at Kent Station. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The regular menu also looks great.

It seemed like an odd combination, at 1st blush, but the Salmon with goat cheese and a blueberry topping may have been the best dinner I've eaten in Seattle - or perhaps anywhere. Mine was at Kent Station, but they have other locations as wel.

The chowders were rich and delicious. The grilled crab sandwich was cold and meant to be. It was a surprise but nice and crabby. Prices are a little steep but the food and beverages were excellent.

If you think fish and chips is worth $22 then you may like this little restaurant. Otherwise, there's the Ram next door which is a WAY better value with equally as good food. And, to be honest, at the Ram you won't have to deal with waiters who's pants are falling off and showing their underwear.

In Seattle for pre-cruise stay and hotel recommended Duke's. Great food and atmosphere. Wait staff was very courteous and professional. Restaurant was convenient with hotel shuttle and location at mall helped with last minute purchases before cruise. Wish we had one in Middle Georgia!

Just went here for lunch, food was good, as usual, but service was absolutely terrible!!! Our waiter was the man bun/beard combo guy, which I should have held against him in general, but I didn't on this occasion. He started out ok during the meal but as we started to wind down he became absolutely obnoxious! We were meeting with... More
