Dukes on Alki has a great rooftop vote of the sound, ferries, and Olympic mountains. It is a perfect place to take out of town visitors, which is why I selected out. The service is good. The hostess put us on a wait list and took my phone number and texted when the table was almost ready which was... read more

After having a little trouble finding parking space on a side street, my dad and I were able to relax on the upper deck and soak in a beautiful, expansive view of the sun setting over the water as we enjoyed a leisurely dinner. We ordered the chowder sampler, enabling us to try four of the tasty house recipes, and... More

My daughter and have our annual date at Alki beach and we go to Dukes just before sunset & sit on the top outdoor patio & sip away the sunset with a perfect wine. The food and service have always been great. We've never had a bad experience. It is a popular place, so we always get there early enough... More

We spent 6 days on Alki Beach in July. I had reviewed the local eateries and planned on visiting a number of them. We ended up at Dukes the first night and were so impressed we went back 2 more times. There were five of us and we all raved of the fresh seafood. The staff are very friendly and... More

The location on Alki Beach is fantastic. I had the fish n chips, which was great. My wife ordered the Salmon with Pesto. The first try the fish was undercooked. When she asked to have it recooked, she asked for no additional pesto sauce since there was plenty to begin with. When it came back, the fish was drowning pesto... More

We had lunch here outside, delightful. Fried clams, Caesar salad, and exemplary clam chowder! Nice outdoor atmosphere and good food.

The chowder here was phenomenal, as was the local nine hats wine. The view is very cool, too, if you wait to get a table outside. Salads and chowder tasted wonderful,however, the service was very, very slow (but polite). I would say that Dukes is worth the drive!

Great view, great food, and good beer for sure !!! Loved this place. Met one of the servers and her husband a couple doors down, and she recommended it, and we're glad she did.

Duke's has several locations in the greater Seattle area but none is more scenic than the Alki restaurant which sits across the road from the broad expanse of beach at which the founders of Seattle built the first white man's encampment. There is nothing more beautiful than snagging one of the tables on the upper deck and enjoying a great... More
