Great place to stop at right on the beach. Food is good and atmosphere is fun. It gets very loud as it is very crowded. Understandable though. It is right in the middle of Waikiki.

If you aren't in to hanging out and waiting, I'd definitely make reservations here, particularly in the latter part of the week. We went on a Friday evening without reservations and it was a long and expensive wait. $38.00 bar bill and. while we certainly drink, that was bit over the top for an hour or so. Moreover the noise was horrendous. You could barely here yourself speak never mind anyone else.

Very disorganized service on arrival. No one really greeted you or gave directions to the bar area. They simply took your name, handed you a pager and basically said "next". It definitely doesn't merit a fine dining category.

We did actually enjoy our dinners and our waiter was very pleasant. I had fish and DH steak and we both were well satisfied . $71.00 for our meals - can't recall all the fine points of our dinners but we didn't feel it was out of line.

I would come here again, with reservations, and likely choose a Wednesday or Thursday as opposed to a Friday or Saturday.

My husband and I enjoyed our lunch here, but we were in a bit of a time crunch, so the slow service was a little stressful for us. Still, what a great location and great view of the Ocean!

We love Duke's - mostly for the scenery and fun location. We usually only go to Waikiki once on our visits to Oahu, and we always go to Duke's. Great fun, great drinks, good food and reasonable prices as well. The ribs with mango BBQ are the best, as well as fresh opah fish if they have it. After dinner, we walk Waikiki beach when it's mostly deserted. Very cool place to come too. A must for your first visit to Hawaii. Make reservations!

This is a great place to go for lunch because you can walk up from the beach and eat outside. Food and drinks were delicious, and the service was timely. I would definitely go again.
