Terrific BBQ experience. Great food, well prepared, and in abundance. Took my family and guests there and we all had a very nice experience. The restaurant was spotless and the staff was courteous and appropriately attentive. What more could one ask for? We would definitely go out of our way to eat there again.

Ate there on a Thursday night and the food was just as fresh and good as I would imagine having on a Sunday.

I don't have any more time to review, but everything... More

I read all the excellent review of Duke's and was looking forward to trying it. Not sure they ate in the same place I did. It's a buffet. The barbecue was ok but nothing special (for good barbecue, try Smoking Planks in Port Royal). The sides were alright but had been on the hotplate too long. All in all it... More

Food is always great and the service.. well you could not get any more southern comfort than dukes. Highly recommend anyone visiting to stop and order the buffet and try different things to find what... More

We had heard this was an excellent place to eat, so when we were in the area we thought we would give it a try. There was a menu available or you could choose the buffet. The food was home cooked and delicious. We will definitely plan to visit again when we are back in the area.

Dukes is Southern home-cooked food at its best and the fact that it was a buffet was a bonus! This is what a family-owned restaurant should be--great food, family atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff--even a visit from the owner. Everything was delicious, and everyone in our party of 11 said that the hushpuppies were the best they had ever had.... More
