We ate here four times during our stay at the Marriott. Service was always great as was the food. Some of the best fish tacos I've had. Good selection of Hawaiian brews as well. A definite repeat for us when we stay at the Marriott.

We have been coming to Kauai biannually for the past 15 years and on every single trip have eaten at Duke's Canoe Club on Rice Street. The menu has changed over the course of time, as have the servers and staff, but it has been one the most consistently great food and service. We now make it our first stop... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here. Their salad bar comes with your meal and is great! Lots of options to choose from. we both ordered a fish entree and although expensive, was delicious. The portion size of fish was much larger than expected and we both left stuffed. the service was fantastic and the setting was beautiful.

This is the only Duke's in Hawaii with Taco Tuesdays. We usually arrive on Tuesdays and head to Duke's first.

Duke's on Kauai, located both at the edge of the Marriott Lagoons Resort and fronting a local beach is an ideal setting. Dining on the Lanai is a window onto a great blending of local folks arriving with their beach chairs as well as visitors feeling out the lay of the land. The food is quite consistent over the years.... More

My spouse brought me here during our vacation, the whole of Waikiki had changed so much in the last 6 years, but Duke's still had its old charm. Authentic Hawaiian decor, relaxed environment, delicious food, and the Salad bar!!! If you want to taste locale Hawaiian flavour like you have to eat here!!!

We love Dukes. We have been to the restaurant on Waikiki, Ka'anapali and at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club. We always have a selection of fish and salad bar (except Maui which does not have a salad bar). We treat this as our Anniversary, Birthday and Whatever day celebration meal.

The food was excellent. The views of the bay were great. Our server, Dante, really made the dinner even better.

Haven't been to Dukes in 20 years. Delicious fresh fish with a salad bar that is tremendous. The service is impeccable and of course Hula Pie for dessert. This is a restaurant chain in Hawaii but it was definitely one of our best meals in 2 weeks.

This restaurant has a nice island atmosphere with some great tables overlooking the water. We ate here twice during our vacation. My husband had fish both times. I had the Kimo steak the first time, it was average. The second time for our last dinner on the island I decided to try some fish. I ordered the macadamia nut crushed... More
