ate at bar twice, excellent experience.

SO this restaurant basically is a money printing machine. I can only imagine how much they take in a night. Went twice, both times stayed in the bar, their korean pork tacos were absolutely amazing. People watching is great, and overall a pretty fun place. One advice, if you're eating in the bar... read more

Great outdoor seating right on the beach. Staff was friendly and attentive. The host was helpful in holding a table for us so that we were able to go back to our hotel and change first. Then when we got back to Duke's he sat us right away. Food was great and drinks were very strong.

First off the atmosphere is fantastic!!! It is the place to be in Honolulu, therefore anytime day or night give yourself a bit of time as you will have to wait for a seat. With the business of the place there is always something going on (usually live music). Get a seat on the patio, which is on the beach,... More

This landmark is on the beach. A very nice setting for all your dining needs. Go at sunset for the full effect and the beauty of the sunset.

Average tasting food, being Honolulu it is expensive and very crowded and noisy. Excellent salad bar and the Hula Dessert was to die for.

Duke's has the best taro bread pudding! And fresh fruit. And an ocean view. What more could you want?

Went several times on my last trip as the wait staff and management are A+ and the food is consistently good and big portions! GREAT drinks and a high energy environment makes for a fun time whether you are alone or with friends. Not the best place for a romantic dinner as it is always slammed and you may have... More

There's usually a wait list for seating in the restaurant, but the bar is open seating. At lunch the menu is the same. The tables by the sand are obviously better. The waitstaff is friendly and the atmosphere can't be beat. The food is okay, but you can find better.

You must get the Hula Pie. It is the ultimate desert. Very delicious. The portion is enough for 2 to share. We tried it and it was tasty. I recommend it!

We stopped by Duke's after reading the many reviews. I'd say it is average at best with poor to slow service. Nothing special here......no reason to go out of your way.
