Delish!!!

We had a wonderful dinner here. Food was great. I loved the beet and kale salad, the nachos with pork and the fish special. Fun ambiance. Definitely get the Hula Pie!!!

We ate here 3 times for lunch over 2 weeks. The food is very reasonable (for Kauai) and both the portion size and quality of the food was very good---and you just cannot beat that wonderful view.

We went early for dinner without reservations, and were lucky to be seated in a short amount of time. The wait is usually quite long as it is such a popular place. They always have great fish, and I had the special fish of the day which was excellent. Our waiter was really a character and his service was great.... More

Great atmosphere, cool employees and nice presentation of food. Enjoyed the hula pie the most. Celebrated Wedding Anniversary of 31 years and enjoyed every minute.

The food and the service was equally good. Worth the price but it was EXPENSIVE. For that reason I wouldn't go back, but I'll certainly miss the food.

this restaurant chain has got it down. I am not a 'chain restaurant' fan, but coming to Duke's is like going on a mini vacation. Great drinks and service, and the food is always consistent and delicious!

FIRST visit of many (I hope!) We stopped in on a Sunday mid-afternoon for brews and tacos and were NOT disappointed in any way. We sat in the beachfront ground level dining area which includes table dining as well as bar-stool service. Staff was most cordial upon arrival; we had a table immediately and were offered menus, beverages and orders-taken... More

The fish tacos are $4.50 and the Kalua pork tacos are $3.50. Order them one at a time or they get soggy. Ask for hot sauce. Be prepared to wait for a table close to the ocean.

We visited Duke's on 2 of the Tuesdays we were in Kauai. The fish tacos are amazing. Each Tuesday, they offer $3.50 fish tacos and each week it is a different fish. They are delicious and inexpensive. The setting is terrific, downstairs from Duke's Restaurant at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club. You are seated literally feet from the sand and... More

Ah, Duke's. What can I say about Duke's that hasn't already been said? There are two options for dining -- the Barefoot Bar downstairs and the restaurant upstairs (reservations recommended). The casual Barefoot Bar offers burgers (the mango burger is the best!), flatbread pizzas, and other "quick" fare that all tastes delicious. The drinks are good and they don't skimp... More
