OK as most know, Duke's has very good seafood and great chowders but at dinner last night I discovered that for the last 3 weeks, they have chosen to remove diet cola (pepsi or coke) from their menu. They had an alternative flavored by monk fruit which tasted flat and terrible. There are no other options! I don't know what is in this alternative cola they serve and frankly don't trust drinking this stuff. Their website does not mention this change (still shows Pepsi products) so not sure what is going on but without a decent zero calorie beverage I will avoid them from now on.

5 different chowders, fish and chips, burgers and a whole lot more. We overdosed on crab- crab dip, crab sliders, and crab chowder. Had tastes of the lobster chowder and clam chowder which were also delicious. Offers full bar service with local brew as well. Friendly, attentive staff and great view.

Had halibut fish and chips platter with chowder, wife had a mixed seafood platter both of which was very good. Cole slaw is a little different, sourdough bread is very sour which I loved. Had a local beer on tap, total price was $61. Great view of the harbor. Worth a visit.

Great atmosphere, the staff the best ever. Food was so succulent and nice presentation. Portions on the smaller side for the price, but they are environment conscious and help support other small countries by purchasing their seafood, so that helped take the sting out of the bill!

We ate lunch at Duke's on the waterfront recently. The food was delicious and the views of the waterfront are beautiful! Duke's has always had the best fresh seafood, but continues to update it's menu to use fresh and organic food items. The halibut fish and chips were delicious, but pricey at $22 for lunch, including chowder. Our waitress told us the bread and butter were organic. Chowder is superb! But don't ask for Diet Coke! In order to not use products with artificial flavors and sweeteners, Duke's offers "Diet Cola". It tastes unusual and the waitress told us it is sweetened with monk fruit. Overall, a great meal. Just go with the iced tea - not the diet cola! :)
