Anniversary. Sad to see the usual candle on the table, not sure how that is part of the Covid safety. Waiter was FABULOUS!! Pre-dinner cocktails were not as good as they usually are, pretty weak. Salmon bites weren’t as crispy as we thought they’d be.

We went to celebrate a birthday. The wait staff were very accommodating. My favorite item to order at Duke’s is the fish taco combo. The taco had so much sauce on it that it dripped out all over the plate and made the tortilla soggy. The sauce drowned out the flavor of the lightly blackened fish. I will count this as an anomaly for Duke’s and go back again. The place was very clean and social distancing was observed.

We went during the wildfire apocolypse and so no view at all but it was so nice to get out for our anniversary! We shared the salmon bites for an appetizer and they were great. My chowder was good but the classic which my husband got was better, highly recommend. The crab salad was nice but the crab was really bland so I suspect recently frozen which was disappointing. Service was fantastic.

Another great dining experience at Dukes today. Tried the Coco prawn appetizer, delicious. For entree I had the Stuffed Halibut and it was cooked perfectly & tasted so good. Ordered a dingy of Lobster chowder and enjoyed that as well. My favorite chowder is still the original though, just can’t beat that one.

Duke’s is my FAVE on Ruston Way!!! EVERYTHING I’ve had has been FABULOUS!! Appetizers, drinks, entrees, sandwiches, salads, desserts... and, of course, the sourdough bread!!
I am NEVER disappointed!!
And the same goes for the service!
Top notch all the way around!
Thank you, Duke’s crew, for ALWAYS taking great care of me and my peeps when we come in!!

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE Duke’s cookbook, too!!!

Always love our meals at Duke's. I had my favorite, Stuffed and Puffed Prawns. My husband ordered stuffed salmon but had stuffed halibut delivered instead. He would have been happy with that, but they insisted on replacing it with the salmon and then took it off our bill. Such excellent service! You can't go wrong with Dukes!

Since shut down we go at least once a month and have great service and food.

This time the service was lacking (watched the waiter have a non-work related conversation with another employee while we watched and waited for our bill) the food was "off" too.

View outside on the deck was great, and our server was also excellent. Food was decent, but not spectacular (no excuse for dry salmon when the lunch was $168 for two after tip). I do admit the marionberry pie was fantastic. All in all, we'll stick with our reliable favorite (we normally go to Anthony's but thought we'd try something different this time).

Delightful staff and setting outside. Food was fine, but not spectacular. I think it may have gone downhill recently. Drinks okay, but again, not anything special. Will go again for a beer and snack, but not a gourmet meal.

Our family has a bunch of people who need to eat gluten free. Duke’s is our go to restaurant because of al the choices and the clearly marked menus.
Save room for the gluten free carrot cake.

We have always loved Duke's, but the last 2 times we have been there, it's been below par.
The blackened rockfish, just wasn't good. The crab dip was 'runny'. The calamari strips were good. The fish and chips, I THOUGHT had panko in beer batter, but it was just breaded. Also, just okay. Even the marionberry cobbler, was boring. NOT SURE what happened to my favorite restaurant, but we won't be going back, unfortunately.

This was our second trip to Duke's in the past month and it surpassed the first, which was amazing. Our server, Wade, was incredible...personable, helpful, funny, knowledgeable and professional. The original chowder was beyond delicious. The macadamia-encrusted halibut is my go-to now...simply amazing. The special was a pan-seared halibut that was a bit sweeter but extremely good as well. The bloody Marys were incredible. And of course, spending time with loved ones on the water on a lovely August evening...WOW. Absolutely love this place!
