    We all had the Halibut and it was fantastic. Price a little high, but in the long run have absolutely no complaints. We will be back.......best clam chowder there is for sure! Russ and Barbara C.

    Reliably excellent food that is worth paying a small premium for. If you're looking for a quieter experience, ask to be seated away from the bar.

    Almost every table has a view of South Lake Union. There's a heated patio area for those cool nights here in Seattle if you are dressed warm. The "Oh My Cod" fish and chips were very good with a light breading and cooked perfectly. My wife had the Crab-stuffed cod and it too was very tasty. What was really outstanding, was the service we received...receptionist was very friendly and our waiter took care of our every need.

    The service was attentive and wonderful! I lunch with a good friend frequently at Duke's and we really appreciate the warm and friendly attitude of the staff. The food is normally wonderful. This last time, the caesar salad was lacking but the seafood skewers helped to make up for that.

    They were very accommodating to my gluten free need. Service was friendly and the meal came quickly. My only complaint was my salmon had two pin bones in it. But everything was delicious and I would eat there again.

    Good was good , not great and portions are small for the price. Tiny little bowl of chowder and 2 piece fish was more like one piece solution half. Fries were both overcooked and cold.

    I recently went to Duke's on Lake Union for lunch. We made our reservation on OpenTable and when we arrived we were immediately greeted by a friendly host and shown to our table by the window. The view was spectacular. The service was prompt and again very friendly. The food and drinks were all top notch. I am always pleased with the food but one dish in particular was a big hit at our table, the seafood Ravioli on the specials sheet were absolutely delectable. Our whole experience was excellent and we will be back.

    We were visiting Seattle for the first time and used trip advisor to name “best seafood in Seattle”. Dukes made that list and didn’t disappoint. The crab cakes were amazing as was the stuffed halibut. The chowder was good and the market salad wonderful. This is a great restaurant with a beautiful view and wonderful food. Best of all the prices are very reasonable and the service good. It’s not a stuffy place and we felt welcomed.

    Overall not a good experience and very expensive for the price. >$200 for 3 with just one beverage and appetizer. Basil pesto salmon was just drenched in cream sauce. Screaming infant in the background. Terrible atmosphere. Wait staff was very nice though. Wouldn’t go back again.

    Great food as always, definitely our favorite restaurant, but a little sad that nothing was done to recognize my daughter's special day. My daughter's 12th birthday was yesterday and for the first time ever, Duke's didn't do anything to celebrate! We even put notes in the reservation and told the hostess and our server. Disappointing!

    Dukes is ALWAYS consistent! You will never get a bad meal or service here. I worked for Dukes years ago under 5th Ave Theater and the quality has not changed at all over the years. We had the halibut and spinach salads which keep me coming back, both were OUTSTANDING! The Havarti, bacon, avacado burger I swear is one of the best burgers in town! It's a bit pricy but so is everything else. At least you know you're going to get your $$ worth here. Oh and order the Famous Bloody Mary's .. YUM!

    The food was unfortunately just ok… My mixed grill was pretty good but the fish and chips and chowder my BF had we not so good. The chowder was more watery than creamy and the fish and chips were not seasoned and tasted bland.

    Food was above par. Service excellent and they were very, very busy. We were happy to see a business thriving with COVID lurking over our heads. The wait people were pleasant and attentive. That was appreciated as well since there has been a shortage of people and good help in all sectors since the arrival of COVID. We understood the shortage so we have learned to be patient the last few years. Nice to experience employees liking what they do. Please try Duke’s, you won’t be disappointed.

    Great view and service. Over priced for quality and quantities. Stuffed Halibit was more like cheese sauce. Did not see the other shell fish. The fish layed on Vegi's and spuds so they tasted like fish. Desert very good. Wine good. Shirley Temple was not.
