Malibu is full of icons. There may be none more legendary than the man who brought the tradition of surfing to our slice of heaven, Duke Kahanamoku. Duke’s Malibu honors the Ambassador of Aloha and pays tribute to the early days of West Coast surfing with delicious island-inspired cuisine, drinks at the Barefoot Bar and a genuine spirit of Aloha. Nestled along the Pacific Coast Highway, Duke’s Malibu has been serving up timeless memories for 25 years, having opened its doors in 1996. Locals and visitors alike come to celebrate life and dine like a legend.

Enjoyed the experience, the food was good, we were seating outside and it was not too loud. A beautiful view of the ocean. There is only valet parking, $10 - kind of annoying. But otherwise, had a great time.

Great as always, no complaints at all. Except for the valet which is probably a private company. He opened the car door for my son and another for his girlfriend but not for the handicapped Mom? My son wound up doing it thank you. Won’t stop us from returning to fabulous Duke’s 👍🏻

My wife and I have been to Duke’s in Kauai, La Jolla, and now Malibu. Same great food and always amazing views! Definitely call ahead for a reservation if you want to be outside as Malibu has a small patio.

We had a terrific experience! At first, we were seated away from the window so it was hard to see the waves. When we asked if we could move to a window table, we only had to wait a few minutes and then our server moved us. Loved the food as usual and the service was excellent!

Had a great time...we were not seated right away because we came a little early than our reservation, but they asked me 3x for my name before we get seated. While walking to our table, the lady asked if we are celebrating anything - and I told her its our anniversary. Then we were seated, very nice view! Food is great - the halibut is delicious. We enjoyed our food - Loco Moco and Coconut Shrimp...We ordered Hula Pie for dessert, and was surprised how huge it was, it was very good and our waitress is very nice and said that its our anniversary pie :) that was nice of her...i gave her $30 tip just because she is very nice....:) we will be back....we will try the Dukes in Kauai next month :)

First time here. The view was amazing. Our waitress was great. The only not so good was the food i ordered. Ahi tuna something … the rice taste like it was cooked yesterday, warmed up and serve it. Very hard, dry and not fresh. Picture attached.

We are regulars at Duke's -- for a midweek dinner, Saturday lunch, Sunday brunch, and many special occasions such as birthdays and graduations. Duke's has long been our local go-to restaurant for simple but important reasons: beautiful location, excellent service, excellent food. We are never disappointed!

Unfortunately we arrived between lunch and dinner. Menu was just ok. The server was nice enough and the view was great. They did alter my dish for me. That was nice.

We had a wonderful time at dukes. It was my husbands birthday and we had a super experience. We had a perfect table by the window to Easter the waves crash on the rocks. Was just amazing. The food and service was very good too. We have been there three times and never had a problem. Thank you for a joyful experience on my husbands birthday. We will be back again and again for sure. Thanks again

My calamari was the best I've ever had... The macadamia crusted fish was very good... My wife's steak was grainy. Landon our waiter was awesome! Very personable and helpful. It was my daughter's birthday and the surprised use with ice cream cake, which was delicious and surprising. Thank you!

The food and service were good and the location is pretty. We had to wait quite a while even though we had a reservation and needed to talk to the manager who was helpful. The food was good and good portions and taste for the the cost. It was very noisy and took away from the relaxation of the ocean. We were outside so maybe was better inside.
