“Very Good Dining Experience”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Located on the Honua Kai Resort property just north of the Kaanapali Beach hotel zone, Duke's offered good food and a pleasant atmosphere. My wife and I opted for a table outside, where food from the main dinner menu can be ordered after 4:45 p.m.. I ordered a fish sandwich from the bar menu while my wife ordered seafood risotto. My sandwich was delicious. It was served on a small hamburger bun but the Ono fillet was thick and juicy. My wife enjoyed the risotto, loaded with lobster, shrimp, scallops and fish. Excellent, friendly service by Andrew who added to our enjoyable dining experience. With so many great places to eat on the west end of Maui, it's highly complimentary for Duke's to earn a return visit from us on our next trip to the Valley Isle.

“Great location, good food and service”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

You can't beat the location of Dukes. Right on the breachfront with a great view. The food is good - expensive, but everything is on Maui. The service was great and quick. We ate their for breakfast and dinner, and ordered snacks by the pool at Honua Kai and were never disappointed.

“Laid back & great food”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Our family of 4 had a great experience and great meal. The view and open air seating cannot be beat! The salad bar was included in all entres, so we didn't have to wait for food or order an appetizer. 3 of us had fish and all were pleased. My son had teriyaki steak, which I was trying to discourage him from ordering, but it was truly AMAZING. We all tasted it and thought it was fantastic. Because we were staying at the Mariott Beach Club, we got a Hula Pie dessert for free. OMG!!!! It was decadent. We demolished it, and it was huge. Chocolate cookie crust, macadamia nut ice cream, fudge topping and whipped cream. We were all full and happy!!!

“Not too bad. We found the service to be pretty good. Amazing breakfast burrito.”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We stayed at the Honua Kai and ate at Dukes once for dinner, once for breakfast and once for lunch.
It really is a nice open air place to eat.
The dinner was interrupted by a gale with heavy rain and wind. The staff were very slow to react so we ended up moving our own table back a few feet to escape the rain.
The breakfast burrito was delicious!
And the lunchtime French Onion Soup was great. Not too salty. Just delicious.
All in all, it's a nice place to grab a bite to eat.

Reviewed March 25, 2013

It can get a little pricey even at Happy Hour, the selection of food & drinks was great...and the views... We ended up going back a couple of times because we wanted to try everything...
