We were at the beach right in front of Duke's and decided to give it a try. We were both pleased with our food and the price. Service was good and the view was spectacular.

We ate here several times over our 7 night stay. Their steak salad is Excellent tasting and a Heck of a Great Value for the money. I also recommend their wonderful Blended MaiTai. Delicious! Ahi appetizer was good. Pricey, but so is most food on the island. We also enjoyed their fish tacos and I kept ordering the Steak salad, as it was a Wonderful cut of meat for under $20. Try it!!!

Everything is fabulous! Can be a wait because of its popularity. Suggest you make reservations if you are a family with kids or a large group. They could improve some on the salad bar offerings though. It is pretty basic

Often full but i wonder why. Portions are really small for the price and food is quite poorly seasoned.

Salad bar only available for dinner.

Would not go there again.

My husband and I dined at Duke's Canoe Club just a couple of nights ago to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. As always (we have dined at Duke's on Kaanapali Beach on Maui and at the Waikiki Beach location) the food and service were excellent!
I made no mention that we were celebrating our anniversary when making the reservation and we were fortunate to get a great Kalapaki Beach view. When the topic of dessert was brought up by our waiter I made the comment "why not, we are celebrating our anniversary". The waiter gave us the "Hula Pie" complimentary (a very nice surprise and touch).
I would definitely recommend making a dinner reservation as there are not too many restaurants with in walking distance of the Marriott and it tends to get a bit crowded evening on a week night.
Mahalo for another fantastic meal and service Duke's!
