this place is stunning! breakfast is great, sunrise view, lunch is cheap and foods are delicious buffet style , dinner by the sunset...i love d foods here.
Duke's – Go on a Sunday between 4 and 6 pm. Great mixed drinks. The live music on Sunday is the best.
I'm not a bank so don't nickel and dime me.... – My friend and I were excited to go to this place. She has been there before and told me that she had a lovely experience there. However this time, it was a completely different experience. We went for lunch and wanted to eat something light so we decided to split a piece of fish and salad. The fish was $15 & supposed to be 5oz. When we got it, it was microscopic & very dry. When we asked the waitress about the size - she reminded us that the reason it was small is that we shared the fish?as if we didn?t know that that is how we ordered it. She also had raved about "the bean salad." So?we decided to try that. But much to my surprise, the bean salad was not even a salad. It was merely a side order of green beans. There were no other vegetables. It was spiced well, but it certainly was not a salad. There was not much to it. In addition, I ordered an ice tea with pineapple juice (on the menu), but instead, she brought me an Arnold Palmer. Rather than make a fuss, I just drank it. When I asked for a refill of ice tea with the pineapple juice, I was charged for the refill. What a rip-off.
THE IT SPOT – This place is a great location. Great fun and an awesome salad bar. This place is my favorite Sunday evening hangout spot.
Fun – such a fun bar!! wait staff was awesome, totally funny. drinks were good. not bad prices considering location
incredible breakfast bar – made to order omeletes as part of all you can eat breakfast bar! unheard of , but , DUKE'S has it. also never thought the best pizza i have ever eaten would be in Hawaii (have had pizza in 39 states and 2 countries)but, the pizza is fantastic , no need to ask for extra toppings whatever you like on your pizza is loaded on, no skimping.ambience is tourist hawaiian , not tacky ,but,difenitely for the tourist,not the locals.great outdoor bar , excellent music...whatever you desire music , dancing, romance, good food,incredible views DUKE'S has it all
Horrible service – The wait for this place was unbelievable. Once we made it inside, the menu selection was slim and way overpriced. The portions were small and the food was mediocre at best. The server ignored our party of 7 and never refreshed our drinks even after two requests. The restaurant sits on the beachfront and has nice scenery, but eat before you go.
A value – Don't come here looking for a quiet romantic fine cuisine meal. We were surprised by the wine list as it contained a good selection of quality wines and pricing. The salad bar was well kept and stocked. The teenage servers were overwhelmed by the crowded room. The fish was satisfactory.
Duke's great location, crowded – This restaurant/bar has a great view of Waikiki, can be especially crowded during peak hours. Food is ok, bar is much better.
Super-crowded but worth the waits – We arrived on a Friday night around 8 PM and the wait was about 55 minutes. You might consider putting your name in and walking across the street to the shopping center. The food was very good -- I got the top sirloin ($19.95) and my girlfriend got the 7 Spice Ahi Tuna which she said was excellent. All entrees come with the salad bar which is very good. The drinks were enjoyable and semi-strong. I recommend the Mickey Goon -- it's a 151 rum-based drink that's pretty yummy. There's another drink with Itch in the name and it comes with a back-scratcher. All-in-all, this is a great place to come for dinner and drinks and make a night out of it.
