We go here at least twice when staying in Kauai. Their selection and preparation of fresh fish never disappoints and it has one of the best salad bars on the island.

I highly recommend this restaurant for dinner on Kauai. Their salad bar is excellent and their menu has a wide variety of specially prepared fish and steaks. It's located right on the beach at Kalapaki and the service is great.

Duke's is on of the few good and consistent restaurants on the island. The food is nothing gourmet but is good and consistent something hard to find on the island. Nice location on the beach and is a fun place with good and happy staff.

Dukes is in the resort area of the Kauai Marriott Beach Club and resort. It has a limited lunch menu (if you go there all the time) and has daily specials. The upstairs dining room is open for dinner only (except for larger, lunch time functions) Most of their tables are under umbrellas or tarps, which can be challenging if... More

Dukes has a simple and delicious lunch menu. My favorite is the portabello mushroom sandwich with grilled veggies. Enjoy the beach scene as well as the lush tropical ambiance with the koi pond and waterfall--relaxing for sure. The fish tacos are my second favorite. Of course dinner is fabulous with fresh fish their specialty, salad bar is a meal in... More

Beautiful view overlooking Kalapaki Beach. They have some good appetizers. Love the Nachos, but ask them for Kalua Nachos. It is with Kalua pig. Great place to get some good fish. My favorite is the Monchong Duke's Style with their Garlis Mash. Also has one of the best salad bars on the island. Must follow dinner with a Hula Pie.... More

The sashimi and cocnut shrimp were sooo good. The macadamia crusted opa was divine. Husband had prime rib. Nice thick slice. Dessert is huge...six of us shared 2 pieces. Lovely views of the harbor and free valet parking. I would eat there again.

Duke’s is one of our favorite restaurants on Kauai…we always have a wonderful dinner here. I had made reservations and we were able to get a great table next to the rail with a fantastic view of Kalapaki Bay. Their salad bar has so many choices. I love their Caesar salad, coleslaw, fresh beets and other salad veggies but with... More
