Duke's is a good place after a long day and you want a relaxed quick meal. It would have gotten a higher review if the food and price matched, which it did not.

I had the fish, and it was quite dry; they brag about their salad bar, but I thought it was mediocre. It could have been a whole lot better.

This restaurant leases out space from the Lihue Marriott hotel, which has spectacular gardens within and can be viewed by using the free valet parking at the Marriott and then walking a few hundred yards to the restaurant. Duke's has its own valet parking but glad I did not use, on a very dangerous street and difficult to get access... More

We usually go to Dukes downstairs for lunch and always include their wings. This year we actually had dinner upstairs and it was a terrific meal. No appetizers were needed as the salad bar was quite substantial. I'd recommend reservations during busy times.

Dukes is a little tricky to find from the street and offers complimentary valet parking. Service was A1 and it was really busy...a good sign for 6 pm Monday. They have a popular Happy Hour that we just missed, We ordered the fresh fish that was well cooked, sauced and seasoned along with a rice pilaf...all delicous. It comes with... More

Stayed at the Kauai Marriott Resort and found Dukes to be convenient choice for our family "splurge-meal" and were not disappointed. Fantastic view with great food and service. The salad bar is phenomenal and could easily be a meal in itself. If you are a member of the Marriott club or if it is your birthday you get a huge... More

Ever since we got a great sunset photo in Dukes on Maui we always seek one out. The food is good but they really have access to some of the best locations. We like to go around sunset as the lighting is great. We tend to go off the causal menu and get burgers flatbreads. Save room for the Hula... More

A great location and good vibe! However the food was just mediocre (way over done fish!!!) and prices were pretty high. Go for the view and Hula pie!

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
