Description: On the sand at Kalapaki Beach, Duke’s is dedicated to legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku, Hawaii’s Ambassador of Aloha. The restaurant’s open-air design offers stunning, sweeping ocean views while the 30 foot waterfall plunges into a koi pond below that meanders through the tables. Enjoy a leisurely lunch, romantic dinner, or tropical cocktail in a fun, friendly atmosphere.

There happy hour is great - we loved the pulled pork flatbread. Went here 6 times in an 8 day stay so that tells you how much we liked it. In all honesty if you don't have a car, it's your only decent option if you're staying at the Marriott. But we went the the one in waikiki a few times where there is lots of dining options, so we did really like the place!

Duke's Restaurant is merely okay. The food is average, the salad bar is strange and the prices are way too expensive for the quality of the food. You can get much better food for the same price at many other places on the island. It's crowded, loud and just not that good. If you want better and more reasonably priced food, eat in the bar downstairs. Service is fast and pleasant.

Dukes is always one of our favorite places to go when we visit Hawaii, and this was our first trip to the Kauai Location. You can sit upstairs in the dining room or downstairs is a more relaxed vibe with sandwiches and burgers. Highly recommend Dukes, and try the Hula Pie for dessert!

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!!!
