Description: DUKE'S MALIBU has brought the excitement of Hawaii, Waikiki, and surfing to the mainland USA. The spectacular oceanfront location on the Pacific Coast Highway offers over 300 feet of romantic oceanfront dining and memorabilia from both Hawaii and California surfing history. The Barefoot Bar, looking south into the lights of Santa Monica, is a great spot for drinks and casual food with friends.

Try this place! Went for lunch. Had the BBQ burger and the fish sandwich. Terrific. Ask for a table by window.

“Try this place for lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Maybe you've been to Dukes for a nice dinner, but if you haven't tried lunch, then golly...you're missing out. The prices are very reasonable, the food's good, and the table you want is by the windows. This way you can watch seals, and pelicans, and if you're really lucky, the dolphins. Dannie and I have our hopes up to see a whale someday...it's a good reason to go back.

“Great burger!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Duke's is a great place to eat, right on the ocean in Malibu with incredible views. We were there between lunch and dinner, so only the bar was open, but I had an excellent burger and ate it from a million dollar view. It was a perfect spot to bring my family, and we then took the Topenga Canyon drive through the mountains before heading over to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights.
Loved the food, ambiance, and view!

“Great fun, view - super busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

This place has been here since for years. We went on the spur of the moment and despite being packed to the doors they quickly found a couple of seats at one of the bars for us. Seats with full ocean view. The staff exhibit a delightful surfer casual culture.

Drinks arrived quickly and refills too. Food service at the bar was slow and had cooled by the time it arrived but the party ambience made up for this mostly. Prices were reasonable and the valet parking was prompt both in and out.

We will return one of these days.
