“Duke's San Clemente”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2009

I heard Reno room was givin' up the ghost & going back to it's roots Duke's of San Clemente...can't say I am sorry. Duke's was a great place to hang out with friends and enjoy a few brews. I am looking forward to the ole place. It was a great place to meet the locals, especially the true surfing crowd, and get a slice of California dreaming. See you in the spring for a great night.

“What A Disappointment!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2008

We're locals and took a friend in for burgers and drinks. Got bad service and a cold, overcooked, overpriced, burger and a couple of weak drinks. Haven't been back. There's too many great places in town or at the harbor to bother returning to Duke's. Want a great Burger, Try Turk's at the Dana Point Harbor or FatBurger's in San Clemente.
