Good food, friendly staff and awesome view

After a stroll on Alki beach, Duke's offers a very good view over the sea and beach and very delicious bites. The staff is very friendly and helpful and they have a good variety of beers and summer cocktails.

Restaurant has a decent menu and selection, but the food was pricey and really didn't extend beyond fast food quantity. Minimal selection beyond clam salmon halibut. If you're looking for a good seafood restaurant suggest you go further down to Salty's

A friend and I ate at Duke's on Alki based on the reviews in Trip Advisor. We both agree that we had the BEST fish and chips we've had in a long time. The fish was cooked perfectly... not cooked to death; succulent, yet not greasy; with the perfect breading. I had the "Dungeness Crabby Baby Bisque" and she had... More

My father was Duke's customer from the days on Queen Anne. When this West Seattle location opened, dad couldn't be happier and became a regular. The staff are like family and when lost dad, there was only place to hold the celebration of his life and that was Dukes. I share this story, to show how amazing and truly awesome... More

My husband and I had lunch at Duke's. I was so disappointed. The food was bleh! I had the Stuffed Halibut and it tasted rubbery and not nearly worth the price. My husband had the Cod and Chips and it wasn't anything special. But when we got our bill for lunch it was over $80 for two lunches and two... More

We ate at Dukes Chowder House on Alki today. We ordered the 2 piece fish for $16.90 What we got, in Seattle of all places, was fish sticks! The fries and slaw were good. There are many fish restaurants in Seattle that serve superb fresh fish. Don't waste your money here.

I always eat here when I'm in Seattle. Just across from the beach is a great location and the seafood is fresh and plentiful. The chowders are insanely good.

Great chowder, yummy seafood specials, right across from Alki Beach in west Seattle. The staff is over the top in service and smiles. If your in Seattle go there, you wont be disappointed with Dukes or Alki beach!

Went with my family for dinner and were seated quickly. Great views of the water and the Seattle skyline. The food was wonderful. We had clam chowder and crab salad sandwhich, and chicken sandwhich. All delicious. Would highly recommend. The waitstaff was very friendly too.

I have just found that I left this review undone. What I specifically remember, is that I wished we had this restaurant near where I live. The meal was fantastic.
