My husband and I were staying at the Marriott. After a long day of traveling we wanted a quick good meal. We were in the mood for fresh fish so we decided to eat upstairs, they have a different menu for the downstairs. My husband enjoyed the Mai Tai he ordered but really wanted the pie for dessert.

We had our Christmas party there last year. It was great. Service was great, food was great, they had a big enough table that all 20 of us could sit at the same table. Salad bar was fabulous, I had the mac nut crusted fish, excellent. And hula pie, my favorite, for dessert. You will love it here.

Good strong drinks - Good fresh fish - On the beach - Fun - Best mai tais on the island. Once we found it, we kept stopping here on our way back from wherever we had gone earlier. It lives up to the hype.

A fun filled place. Everyone enjoying themselves. If you want more elegant dining go upstairs to their "dining room". More choices, but much the same excellent food and presentation. both are great places to enjoy great food.

The food is good, and the Hula Pie is excellent! The view of Nawiliwilli harbor is front and center.

In the morning, we took a helicopter tour. We then stopped for lunch at Duke's. There's a great vibe there. Our table overlooked the beach, just a few yards away. I had the most incredible fish tacos I've ever eaten. My wife had a fish sandwiche, which she said was equally incredible.

We have eaten here several times and have enjoyed it thoroughly every time. We have stayed as owners in the Marriott Beach Club and it's so awesome to go down the elevator, walk 30 yards and you're in the restaurant! The views are awesome, the service always great, the food is fantastic! The mahi is always yummy, the shrimp scampi... More

The seafood was excellent and the salad bar exceptional. Service and ambiance was great and we would definitely go here again. Come before dark to enjoy the view.

We first went to Duke's right after a 9 hour plane ride in desperate need of libations and food. We certainly picked the right place. We ate downstairs in the "barefoot" beach bar overlooking Kalapaki Bay. Food was good, service was good and drinks were great. A few nights later we decided to go upstairs for a nice dinner. And...

The location is superb, the service is excellent, the food is always very good. We ate at both the Barefoot bar & the upstairs restaurant. Hard to beat the fresh fish, always great. The salad bar with dinner in the upstairs restaurant is one of the best on the island.
