I try to come to a location nearly every time I am in the area. It's always Delish! Today I wanted a light lunch and they were kind enough to do the spinach salad add chicken! It was plenty for a nice warm day. I have also had a dish which is still an all time fav salmon with blueberry... More

Had a business dinner here. The staff was very polite and accommodating. The food was awesome and the view doesn't get much better than this one.

The service here was great and all were friendly, but the booths were so close together you could hardly move and it was super loud and chaotic. The chowder was decent but nothing special. I should've stuck to the original classic chowder rather than a specialty chowder that was somewhat salty.

Visited Duke's as a couple, last minute dinner decision but we were able to get a table at 6:00 PM on a Friday night. The place is small but busy. Servers were friendly. Crab bisque in a bread bowl was sublime. Seafood salad and mixed seafood grill were both excellent, perfectly cooked with great sauce. Really lovely meal in a... More

Our griends invited us to this restaurant that is located across from Alki beach. It's a nice restaurant. Everything was great-delicious. Salomon with cherry-cherry sauce was a pleasant surprise. We had a great time.

We went there as two couples for the late Happy Hour (9pm on) on a warm Saturday night to catch the sunset and the Seattle city lights. When we arrived we were greeted on the ground level by the hostess and told to just go get any open table upstairs for Happy Hour. So we went upstairs and got a... More

This is a great place to dine! It's always super busy, which should be a testament to its popularity. Food and drink is great! I really don't understand the poor reviews, perhaps because some may not have been served immediately. But for such good food and decent prices, some patience is to be expected. This will certainly be a regular... More

We had a late lunch at Duke's Chowder House on Alki this past Sunday. I had the chowder (their award winning clam chowder) and salad (Out of the Bleu Caesar) combo. The chowder was really tasty (a creamy clam, tiny potato and herb delight) and the salad was perfect (a mild bleu cheese flavor, but no big chunks of cheese).... More
