“Great choice”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Just posted on the Dukes Bar and Grill site. This establishment was a great choice. From the outside road side was a little leary. Once inside things changed. VERY clean, well layed out with a view from every seat. Many levels and each one seemed to have a different vibe. Heard the outside glass enclosure opens in the summer. Overlooking the Susquehanna River this is beautiful! (We were there and the river FROZEN--it was a gorgeous view).The food was well prepared and plentiful! Staff very friendly and thanked us multiple times for stopping by. Will definitely go back in the summer and see what that looks like. Was hubby's birthday and he wanted something "different" and not a chain restaurant. Good choice!

“Outstanding river front views”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

One of the best features of Duke's is its riverfront location. They have a very large deck along the Susquehanna River with a great view. The menu is extensive, mainly bar type food. The sandwich wrap I had was good and the table wait service was above average. We asked for a table on the deck and were shown to one in the bright sunlight. When we asked for a table in the shade (and there were many available) the hostess rolled her eyes and by facial expression made it known she wasn't happy about our request. The deck is definitely a nice atmosphere to enjoy a meal & drinks with friends.

“Nice riverside resturant & deck”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Recently went to Duke's with my wife, daughter & her fiancée. He lives nearby, and has been there before. First off they do not take reservations. You can request outside on the deck or first available. (maybe quicker, but inside or out). We opted for the outside. Nice view of the river & bridge. The only problem with this was that it was early May & a little cold on the deck.
Also I don't know if the weather had something to do with this or not, but there were A LOT of nat's or some sort of other small insects flying all around in swarms. They have a retractable roof, which they eventually extented & heaters near the ceiling which helped immensely.
Now for the food...We started with the "Crab Pretzel" for an appetizer. A MUST! A large soft pretzel w/ crab & cheddar melted on top. My wife ordered the "Southwest chicken". Looked great & tasted as it looked! I had the "Crisfield burger". A 1/2 lb. burger topped w/ a crabcake, ham and jack & cheddar cheeses. Also good but a little dry. No sauce or dressing on burger.
Also I guess my fault ( for not saying anything) as well as the waitress (for not asking) but my burger was Really well done, so much as to also being a little dry. I also had a specialty drink called a "Mango Bango". A frozen drink, like a "Rita's ice" with whip cream on top. Really refreshing! Overall a nice experience. Would like to try again when it gets warmer.
