Everything was excellent! Seafood salad, salmon, and especially chocolate cake and berry cobbler.

Alex our waiter was great! The food, ambiance and the overall service was very good. Prices are a bit steep on the menu overall but if its being justified by the entire package (location, scenery, service) then Im willing to overlook it as long as they never stop doing what they do best

Great experience altogether!!

Sorry...the fish was dry, and the food is overpriced. The service was excellent though, and I may go back for the view.

Great food and atmosphere and even better service with a great attitude. Our server was great and gave us good recommendations from a menu she obviously knew well. The food did not disappoint.

Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back ourselves whenever we are in the area!

We experienced a very quiet evening, the quiet charm of Duke's and the amazing menu. The Salmon was outstanding and the service was unrushed and friendly. We experienced no wait for a table with a view of the Sound. We have been to Duke's before, but it seems to get better with each visit. We strongly recommend Duke's to our friends. It is the perfect restaurant on the Rustin Way waterfront. Thank you Duke's for a very pleasant evening and a delicious seafood dinner.

I didn't appreciate sitting in the corner for our Birthday dinner, I did ask for a front window seat. There was some space available in the front. I had to ask for my clam chowder 3 times. Also the prices were a bit high for the AMOUNT of food.

I’ve been going here all my life and the service was exceptional mine and my husband’s most recent visit, as it usually is. I really wish I could remember my server’s name he was just awesome! So friendly, he treated us as if we were friends and we enjoyed him every time he came to our table. He made sure we were taken care of all night. Thank you. I recommend visiting. I always get the Award Winning Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl and it has never failed me!

Ty Cobb salad had about 10 hard bacon bits. Halibut was plain, peas were not cooked. We often eat at dukes and product does not support price. Waiter was lovely

Always like to go to Dukes. The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. The food and drinks were great. The Chowder is the best and try the crab deviled egg, wow! Will be back soon. Cheers to the hiring manager for selecting such great staff and creating a nice experience.

The Ruston store is beautiful, but the Halibut was over cooked. I did not mention it to our waitress Katie. I will still eat there on occasion.

Service was excellent, very accommodating for my food allergies. I ordered halibut and chips, fish was a bit overcooked, not inedible, but for $20, expected better. Crab/prawn app was too pricey ($22) for the size of the "prawns"... probably u25. Hubby's entree seafood sampler was perfect, as was our marion berry pie.

The best Fish and Chips and Chowder period. We have had these items at several other places and now Duke's is the only place we will go for them. I also had a Manhattan this time and it was excellent. Our server, Alex B, is an outstanding server and we always try to get in his section.

The ambiance was nice but the food was not very good. Clam chowder and lobster soup was bad, didn't taste good.

We come here when we visit our son at college and Duke’s is always fabulous! I forgot that I had made reservation 15 earlier and we were running late. The hostess was very helpful and told us not to worry. Our server Katie was awesome!!! Wonderful menu suggestions! I always get a “Dinghy” tasting of Clam Chowder and Lobster Pernod. Katie told me to try the “Clobster” A half of spoon of clam chowder and half of Lobster Pernod. Absolutely amazing! I always get the Macadamia Nut Encrusted Halibut with the Hazelnut Beurre Blanc. It’s delicious!

It’s a lovely dining experience with great service! Oh, and get the Marionberry Pie with vanilla ice cream..to die for....

We had wonderful attentive service. The food was also excellent as expected. No problems with substitutions. We appreciated being sat at the window which was our request.
