About
On the sand at Kalapaki Beach, Duke’s is dedicated to legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku, Hawaii’s Ambassador of Aloha. The restaurant’s open-air design offers stunning, sweeping ocean views while the 30 foot waterfall plunges into a koi pond below that meanders through the tables. Enjoy a leisurely lunch, romantic dinner, or tropical cocktail in a fun, friendly atmosphere.

Staff were excellent and the food was great. We recommend the dessert! Soooo good. We appreciated that they split the shared food into two plates for serving. Aloha hours - 3-5 (aka happy hour).

Yes. They had two meals that were gluten free. In my review I listed that specifically and I believe what I ordered. It was very good. Great spot to go to happy hour after a long day excursion.
