Duke's Seafood & Chowder - Tacoma
What a beautiful night sitting on out on the patio
As always, great food , great service! Always a wonderful place to take visitors!
The drinks are absolutely awesome although expensive. I had an old fashioned and it was over $13. I ordered a taste of claim chowder (2oz) and will order a bigger bowl next time! It was delectable! The food is So so good and worth the price. Service was great. Everytime I felt I needed my servier she just appeared and was quick with our requests. Will definitely recommend.
Great Seafood, perfect view of Commencement Bay & as always outstanding service. Thanks for having a Gluten Free menu.
Really great food and a nice setting for a place to meet with friends and family. Good service too! Not to mention the chowder is to die for!
Interesting combinations and great chowder. They were somewhat crowded and we did have to wait for our reservation. Service was a bit slow.
Great food and exceptional service. Happy Hour food menu was phenomenal!! Highly recommend
Premium price for pretty good food, Was disturbed that my Blue Cheese Ceasar didn't have blue cheese. I asked the waitress about it and she brought some and then my salad was delishiousness
Staff and management seem very engaged. Someone was always there to refill my water or ask if I needed something. I went during lunch time.
I have eaten at this restaurant many times. Usually it is a delight with excellent food. Last night however was a major disappointment. We ordered 3 salmon dishes. All were overdone, dry and cool. Grilled potatoes were soft and the asparagus was overdone. One ordered the fish and chips. Remarked that it was cold and the cod was firm, not flaky. Appetizer of shrimp - very greasy. Given the excellent dinners of the past it was a mystery why this night was so bad. We opined that the food was pre-prepared and kept in warming drawers. Regardless, it was not a nice dinner
Service was pretty slow. Our waitress took our drink order pretty promptly but took a very long time to bring the teas. She took our appetizer order and then apps came out and we finished before our food order was even taken. Our bill was $270, so to spend that much and not have the best service was pretty disappointing. Especially when we were treating an out of town guest.
Fantastic, friendly staff. Food is off the hook! The deck seating is beautiful. And 5he cost/value ratio is fantastic.
I’ve been to Duke’s before but it has been quite some time. I thought everything was excellent. I’ll go back sooner!!!
The staff is very professional and the location is next to the water. The clam chowder is delicious, however the price is very high for the value
Lovely patio and amazing halibut
As always fine food and great service. The coconut shrimp are to die for including the edible cheese dish. Everything else was superb. Plan to bring lots of money--not a cheap place but very good value.
Great service. Chowder still the best. Would go back again
A great Birthday dinner. Appreciate the staff making my big day perfect.
Enjoyed our meals, the service and the atmosphere.
I just wanted to say thanks to the Duke's staff who were great. We came all the way from Thailand to visit my mother and also celebrate our 10th anniversary. It was an excellent night out, even though it was difficult getting home with the roads being closed for the 4th.
We went there for Fourth of July and our anniversary. Alex was our server and absolutely fabulous! Amazing customer service, great food and just an overall enjoyable experience.
Food was awesome Chowder was indeed one of the best I tasted
Great service and food. Reasonable prices. Highly recommend it for families and couples
We celebrated my daughter's birthday and we weren't disappointed. Our server was outstanding and so was the delicious food.
Stuffed and puffed shrimp is my all time favorite.
I would not recommend Dukes because for the price of the food and the amount of food that I got in my family got it was not worth it. The service was OK but the employees were not friendly. Just would not go back and my kids asked if we not go back there too because they feel they paid too much money for the amount of food that they got
This is becoming one of my favorite places to dine! It's not just a Seafood restaurant. They have just about anything anyone could want, and the value is incredible.
Amazing location and food. All employees were friendly, attentive and professional. Our server Lois (?) was beyond fantastic!! She made the drive from Rochester worth the while. Definitely will be returning and recommending this location to friends and family!!
The food was good. Salmon a tiny bit overdone, but the flavors were very nice.
Service was excellent.
Food was Great! I do think it was a little bit overpriced! We sat close to the kitchen but the kitchen noise wasn’t the problem. There was a retirement party directly behind us were there about 24+ people sitting in the noise level was very loud. We only had about 10 minutes of relief and then another party came in after that. On my open table reservation, I requested a window seat. I also mention that we were celebrating a birthday. The birthday did not get mentioned to the waitress and we didn’t want to mention it in front of the birthday person at the table. So a special birthday treat was never brought out for our birthday person. That was a little disappointing. That’s also our fault, as we should’ve said something to you.
Duke's is our go to celebration place. Always great service, food, and the scenery for this land lubber from Minnesota is breathtaking...Mt Rainier and the Puget Sound, what a combination and you are dining right on the water. Pick a warm evening and dine out on the deck and watch for marine life!!!
Chowder has become too salty. One entree was dry and over cooked. Rest of meals were good.
Great place to eat surprised a little on price a salad and fish and chips 66 dollars is a little pricey but good was good and service was prompt and face
Never disappoints us! We always eat at Duke’s when in the area, and once again it was perfect!!
Duke’s was a lovely evening. I brought my parents (in their 80’s), and my college age daughter, and everyone enjoyed themselves. Beautiful view of the Sound, top notch extremely friendly service, and delicious food. They accommodated my gluten-free requests (so excited I could eat their clam chowder!), and my daughter’s vegan diet too. My favorite part of the meal was the amazing cucumber mojito! We will definitely return on our next trip to Tacoma.
Great choices and so well prepared. Lots of gluten free available, too. Excellent view, too.
It was my first time in Tacoma and I picked the absolute PERFECT place for dinner! The view was spectacular, the cocktails delightful and the food was simply amazing! I have Celiac disease and have to totally avoid gluten. This restaurant had the most options I have ever experienced and the food was beyond amazing. I love that they share recipes and I even bought the cookbook. My friend said the homemade bread was spectacular too! The service was impeccable! This restaurant provides an unbelievable experience in every way!
We are regulars at Duke's. It's a good spot. I always get 2 orders of the seafood nosh bites as my meal. It's so good! It's a great spot on the water. Great service always. Nice Tacoma staple.
Duke’s usual great seafood - well prepared and very tasty.
Best place on the waterfront for seafood...The only negative was the clam chowder was WAY too salty (bad show) and the salad was OVER oiled ( bad show). My cod was great.
