The Tacoma Duke's appears to be participating well in the requirements of social distancing, face coverings while making my wife and me feel really welcome. We've been here twice since Duke's was given the green light to reopen and each visit has been superb! We've had the same server (cannot remember her name darn it!) and she's such a delight. As Duke's is our go-to restaurant along Ruston Way, we are looking forward to our next visit!

Duke's is consistently great! Sure, the price point is higher but it matches the value and experience.

We love going to Dukes. My husband has a gluten allergy and Dukes has an awesome menu with plenty for him to choose from, including the BEST carrot cake that you'd never know is GF. Their chowder is beyond good! I love the lobster mobster! We choose Dukes for special occasions because the food is stellar, the service is top notch, and the restaurant feels special enough for a fancy night out, but also casual enough to come in your flip flops and jeans!

Stuffed Halibut and stuffed prawns were out of this world. Crab dip was best ever. Need I say anything about the chowder??

The clam chowder soup was a little too salty The fish taco was just ok - nothing special for that price and became soggy before I finished eating it . I must say I was a little disappointed. My dining partner liked the seafood salad he ordered.

Early evening dinner with the fam. Reception was friendly,helpful and prompt. We were seated within 3-5 minutes of our arrival. Our server was Wade and he was attentive in bringing drinks, bread and answering our questions. He was enthusiastic and funny. We enjoyed the service and our meal. We will be back to Duke’s very soon. The waterfront views are superb.

First time back to a restaurant and it all worked out great. We sampled chowder and then had seafood entrees. Tiffani did a great job. Nice to get back out.

Food was good. Would have liked a little more. Chowder was gritty with bits of sand. Salmon was a bit dry which the honey glaze made up a bit for but missing the salmon flavor. The wine was great. The marionberry dessert was also great. Service was also very good. All together it was far too expensive for a fairly simple meal.

Always a great experience at Duke's. A little on the pricey end, but pretty much worth it. If only it was easier to get outdoor seating. Especially with this pandemic. It did look like they were adhering to requirements and precautions regarding COVID-19 safety which I really appreciated.

Great experience as usual from one of our favorite restaurants. Thank you for the free desert for my wife’s birthday. The mulberry cobbler pie with ice cream was legit! Best clam chowder I’ve ever had and I’ve been around. Thanks again - jay d

We had a reservation and got our table immediately. We got a table, right on the water on the outside deck, just as we had requested. The service was perfect and so was the food. It was a beautiful afternoon.

We've been patrons of Duke's for probably a decade, maybe more. Duke's is one of our few indulgences and I can't remember ever getting a bad meal there. With the current Covid-19 stupidity it has become necessary to initiate different, much more stringent, sanitary practices. Duke's is handling the problem quite well. His service personnel are well trained and reliably keep up with the required cleaning and sanitizing.

That said, we were there for the food, which we had missed over the last few months. My spouse decided to try one of the hamburgers and it was such a delight and of great size that she ended up taking enough home for another meal. I chose the Stuffed Copper River Salmon and enjoyed it to the point that I was stealing her potatoes to use as mops to clean my plate. Since we were celebrating my birthday as well as welcoming Duke's return to service, they provided a free desert. I chose the crisp with vanilla ice cream. We were unable to finish it so the remains of it went home with us, too.

As a result of working around the disruption caused by Covid-19, Duke's offers complete frozen dinners that you can cook at home. The dinners include four pounds of their prize-winning clam chowder, which is also available separately, and we got a brick of it to go with all the other food we were carrying home.

We used it to supplement our next night's dinner at home. It was just a delicious and tongue pleasing at home as it always is in the restaurant.

I highly recommend Duke's for excellent food, great service, a knowledgeable staff, and, did I mention great food? We've been there many times before and expect to return many more times.

I feel the price of the food is very high for what you get. I had a salmon sandwich for lunch and it was 30 bucks! Not sure it was worth that.... view was amazing though!

Food was very delicious, way better than the other local seafood chains, but also more expensive. It’s definitely for special occasions. Between me, my husband and our 7-yr old son, the bill came to $98 (before tip) for Father’s Day lunch, with coffee and soda only. No alcoholic drinks.

I had the stuffed and puffed prawns and it was to die for! My husband had the pasta with blackened Alaskan salmon and that was also very good.

Highly recommended if you can afford it.

Nothing but great things to say about Duke's Seafood. I have been a loyal customer for years. Their response to COVID-19 guidelines and safety precautions was impressive and appreciated. I enjoyed dining here with less patrons, to be honest. Their service is impeccable and the food is beyond fresh and delicious.

Dukes is back as if nothing has changed. Of course, the rules and very unobtrusive, shields are in place. It was wonderful to feel the normalcy and friendliness of the staff, once again. All four of us enjoyed appItizers, entree’s and desserts. And of course the bread! All delicious and served at appropriate temperature. Three cheers for Dukes!

Went in to celebrate second wedding anniversary and Father’s Day combination. Had an absolute fantastic meal. All four of us enjoyed our meals. The crab stuffed Halibut was so delicious that I know that will be what I order next time. Had two different chowders that were also delicious. Ordered the crab dip for starters. Dukes never disappoints! Staff was wonderful.

Excellent food and waiting staff service. The hostess asked us if we wanted to sit outside and then said it’s a 50 minute wait. Not sure why she offered. Also we had a reservation and stated it was a birthday (21st). Nothing until we told the server.
