great little place

Place is very casual, yet killer views right across from the beach. A little bit of So Cal feel in Seattle. Decent menu. Prices are a bit high, but its a nice date night or brunch kind of place.

Dukes has always had good food and drink...but the beer and the wine dinners are the best food the restaurant has put out, in my opinion. The chef always finds a creative and tasty pairing with the drink in each course. If you have not attended one of these, it is highly recommended to attend the drink of your choice... More

My husband accompanied me on a business trip to the area. After I worked all day he suggested that we go to West Seattle and have a nice relaxing dinner at Duke's restaurant. It had been recommended by a friend that lives in the area. I was so excited when we arrived that we were sat by the windows and... More

Always the very first place I go to eat once I arrive in Seattle, Dukes is a lot of fun, has great staff who do all they can to make your night special, and some of the best seafood you will find anywhere. Don't leave without trying the Chowder. They also cater to those in our party who need Gluten... More

Great location just across from the beach. Nice casual atmosphere. Service was good and food was tasty. I had the chowder sampler, and all 3 were delicious! Minor gripe: they served our chowder and our main courses at the same time, which I thought was kind of strange. Another minor gripe: they were not serving outside, even though it was... More

If you are looking for a great view, a beach to walk on afterwards and some damn good chowder - search no more. I LOVE their clam chowder - (forget Ivars, go HERE!), and you even can have a 'chowder taster' of the several they offer. Happy Hour just flippin amazing sliders, RECOMMEND! Spicey Bloody Mary - but just beautifully... More

We stopped for a late lunch and were very pleased we did. We sat outside in the sun and it was charming - sitting opposite the water. Fabulous chowder - hot, spicy and very filling. I understand that the chowder is the main attraction in this restaurant and I can see why! Great scallops, hot and crunchy fries, good chilled... More

This is my favorite Dukes location, even though parking can be a challenge. The weathervane scallops, Mexican spotted prawns and Alaskan salmon and beef filet with an outstanding demi-glace. A dinner that was outstanding in everyway. The highest rating I have ever given Dukes... and well deserved!

We were brought here by a friend who lives in West Seattle while in town for business. Don't be fooled by the humble decor, they have some seriously good service and great food. We started with the salmon sliders, which may have been the best thing we ate. My wife and I shared the Silky Pan Seared Salmon; first, they... More
