the food and drink were excellent as well as the service. it was our 38th anniversary and I had requested a window table 4 days prior when I made my reservation. when we arrived, they seated us considerably distant from the window. when I asked for help on this, they really tried to accommodate us. we had to wait a bit longer, but they got us taken care of and gave us a complimentary appetizer. overall, a great experience

Great spot for casual elegance in dining. The ambience is wonderful with a long pier to walk either before or after dining. Second time at this Dukes location with a wonderful experience.

Our waitress seemed annoyed by our presence, wasn’t around much. We were celebrating 3 birthdays and yet no song (everyone around us got one) , not even a Happy BDay! The drinks were downright awful, basically booze with ice and spritz off a soda gun (worst mai tai ever!). Overall, I wouldn’t come back.

The service and food were EXCELLENT!! We went around 7:15 on a Sunday evening and we didn’t feel rushed even though the restaurant closed at 8:30. Our waiter, Devan was excellent and attentive and the food was fresh and cooked to perfection!!

Sunday brunch is a very slimmed down affair since COVID. Their Sunday brunch had been a family favorite. In defense of today’s Sunday affair, Duke’s remains a standout for its delicious prep on fresh fish. The mahi was outstanding. We enjoyed the coconut shrimp appetizer and the always amazing Caesar salads. Our meal was great and we enjoyed the wait staff who took time to chat briefly. The view is still the best. We love Duke’s.

Christopher was an amazing waiter, he knew the menu, was very accommodating and sincerely enjoyed his job. The other staff at duke’s were also friendly and took care of anything we needed. The view of the pier was outstanding and the food was delicious. We would comeback again and want to say thank you for the experience.

We were seated in the area adjacent to the bar and it quickly became very noisy -- all hard surfaces! When we were leaving and walked through the main part of the restaurant, it was MUCH quieter. I'd suggest always asking for seating in that area.

The food was good, as always, though I was disappointed with the Seafood Pot. All of the rest was the usually excellent quality. And our waiter (Art) and the other staff were all friendly and efficient, without being overbearing or rushing us.

Overall, a very nice experience.

Great ambiance and view of the pier. Waiter was great and informed for helping my wife choose gluten free options. Prime rib dinner was awesome, tasty and a large sized portion. My daughter and wife got fish dinners. They were well prepared. The deserts were well prepared, tasty, and unique. Alcohol drink came in a cool glass. Great experience all around and our family of 4 were so happy.

My first time at Dukes Huntington Beach. I have been to the one in Waikiki. Both were fabulous. Slightly different of course, but equally great. Was there particularly for a Birthday celebration and everyone there was exceptionally friendly with lots of wishes to my friend for her birthday, and our server went out of her way to make an amazing night.
