Friendly staff and "right on the ocean" dining area that can't be beat. I can surf, sunbathe, and gorge all within a few yards.

Ocean front views are always dreamy to look at. The steak and lobster are pretty awesome, too.

GREAT WAITRESSES! GREAT FOOD! BEAUTIFUL VIEW! – I just moved to Malibu and out of all the restaurants on pch, and in the entire city of malibu, Duke's Barefoot Bar is the best place to eat. When I first walked into the bar, I was greeted by the waitresses as well as the manager. As soon as I sat down on the patio, i was greeted immediately. My waitress was informative, conversational, very witty! (not to mention beautiful). The service definitly made my experience great, the staff seems like they are family, the waitresses seem like best friends, and the bartenders make a mean drink . (I recommend the Hawaiian Ice tea! ) Even the barbacks were friendly!! For food i recommend the Mango BBQ Burger, also, my wife ordered the panko Opah dish and loved it . Overall, the waitresses made the restaurant fun and the food was delicious, and i didnt break the bank! GO! ITS WORTH IT..PLUS YOU GET TO SEE DOLHPINS AND SEALS WHILE U EAT, ITS LIKE SEAWORLD, BUT BETTER.

Great view, but not so for the food. – Just got back from Duke's where we experienced a splendid ocean view, reasonable service, tastey hot rolls, and pricey dinners that were below par. A variety of fresh fish is served with a choice of seven different styles/sides an attempt at gourmet Island/fusion preparation. The chili scallop dish used fresh ingredients, bok choy, onions, pea pods, but the dish was doused in taste-destroying hot sauce..almost inedible. Served with the scallops, the shitake mushroom side was crisp and scrumptious while the ball of sticky white ice was unimaginative. Mahimahi hibachi style was TOO, TOO salty (even for a salt lover), served with udon noodles that were overly sweet, and a small side of unassuming veggies. The prime rib was generous, but tough! Again the sides of fried, shoestring onions and potatoes were better than the main course! While the atmosphere and service are pleasant, the ambiance cannot sub for good food. Perhaps, a meal at another time of day, appetizers, or the drinks should be tried before I give up on Duke's? I hope to not be disappointed the next time...until then, all others order and eat with caution. but enjoy the bird's eye ocean view.

Great food Great view – Eat in the diningroom but skip the bar. The bar was so disorganized! We waited for 30 minutes for our drink order. Our table was ready before our drinks came. After many excuses, the bar waitress brought our drinks & they were the wrong drinks. Once we got that settled with the manager, we had a great meal in the dining area.

Great bar, great food and great value – If you are looking for incredible ocean views and good food, Duke's is the place to go. The service is good to. The food varies from seafood to chicken dishes and burgers for the little ones. They have some great drinks and the views in the restuarant and the barefoot bar cannot be beat. If you are looking to impress some of your out of town guests, this is the place to go. You can dig your feet into the sand at the barefoot bar, where waves crash right on the rocks in front of you. On Sundays they have a brunch that includes everything under the sun, and everything at the restaurant is reasonably priced. I have yet to hear a complaint from anyone I know who has gone here and everyone I know recommends this restaurant. You can't go wrong with Duke's.

Best waterfront beach bar – Sit on a Malibu beach with the waves crashing up to you & your loved one watching the sun drop behind the horizon, turning the sky incandescent. Now erect a glass wall to protect you both from the wind & spray, with gas heaters to keep you warm. Now add cocktail service and great happy hour food and dig your toes into the sand. This is the way we spend an evening when in LA. One of our favorite spots ever, and worth driving by the nearer, busier, trendier Gl*dstones on PCH. Just go.

Good seafood, GREAT location – It was so cool to sit out and watch the waves crashing just outside. It was very peaceful here when we came early one afternoon, between rush times. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, and my coconut shrimp were very tasty and not too greasy. My date's tuna melt was good but a bit greasy. They have a brunch that seems worthwhile and I would return for that. The views can't be beat!

Why is this place rated so low when almost all of the reviews are positive? – I've been to the restaurant more often than the bar - both are great. The chowder and every seafood dish is amazing. Their brunch is a little pricey but very high quality for buffet food. I brought my parents here just before they took a trip to Hawaii and they said the meal at Duke's was better than the "authentic" meals they had in Hawaii! This is the only restaurant, out of hundreds I've brought them to in LA and NY, that they've requested we go back to. So it's definitely a good place to bring parents - for the fun atmosphere, the incredible ocean view, and the creative seafood dishes!

Sip mai tais and watch the sunset from the Malibu sand. – The Scene
If Duke's were any closer to the Pacific, it would cease being a beach bar and start being, well, very wet. When the tide is in, waves crash just a few feet away from the bar. Patio tables sit on a triangle of Malibu Beach and invite patrons to dig their feet in the sand while sipping a drink and watching the sunset. For more action, take a seat at the polished teak bar where as much attention is focused on the scenery inside as out.

The Draw
Laid-back locals and tourists share the view. Guys sport Hawaiian shirts and sunglasses while gals wear spaghetti straps and sandals. Toast Duke Kahanamoku, granddaddy of surfing and patron saint of the establishment, with a rum-laced mai tai or a pineapple-crowned blue Hawaiian.

Great food, good service, great ocean views! – This is one of the few great restaurants left along PCH. The food is great, service is friendly and the ocean views are spectacular!
