Excellent salad bar, like to see more in restaurants. Had the sushi grade Ahi, was good, not the best I ever had. Service was good for our group of 10. Molten Ice cream pie was huge, enough for several people!

Great restaurant close to Kauai Marriott. We dined in the bar the 2 times we went and on Tuesday took advantage of their taco Tuesday special of fish tacos for 3.00! The fish is white and flaky, very good deal! They serve great mai tai's too! The upstairs restaurant looked very nice.

Four of us stopped by for a light evening meal. Two ordered the mac crusted fish dinner. It was not on perfectly cooked but the crust was flavorful. The flatbread was okay...or waitress suggested a side of pesto which helped. The service was great and the view is always worth the trip. We were disappointed....the music that was schueduled failed to arrive.

This was our first visit to Duke's. We were impressed with the service, the Ahi Ahi burger was fresh and very tasty and not coated or deep fried. A couple we ran into on the North shore told us to be sure and save room for Hula pie. Not knowing what to expect we ordered. Wow - a Sleeping Giant of ice cream, macadamia nuts, fudge and whip cream on a chocolate crust. A trip to Kauai would not be as refreshing or complete without this delectable treat. Skip the salad bar and do dessert - you are on vacation!

Music on Fridays, great pupus(appetizers), order the ribs as pupu from upstairs and if you like fish, order the opah on rice...yummy!
