Food here is always good. Service this time was on "Hawaii" time but always friendly and helpful. The Hula pie itself almost makes it worth a trip. Beautiful view of the ocean while eating. Salad bar is extra $3 but worth it. We try to...More

Not to be missed. Open windows overlooking a beautiful beach. Excellent fish with a delicious salad bar. Hula pie not to be missed for dessert. One of our favorites in Lihue!

I went to Dukes after a long Zip lining adventure, so I was glad to find out that they have a casual dining area by the ocean. The ocean view is amazing even at night. I had the tenderloin tacos, the sauce was amazing, but...More

We dined twice here - first right after our arrival in Kauai, and again to bid my parents "aloha" before we dropped them off. We got many dishes to share, including Korean tacos, nachos, and the Hula Pie! The atmosphere was beautiful and calming, with...More

During our month long stay on Kauai, we went to Duke's several times for lunch. I know other people had different things, but I stayed with fish tacos each time because they were awesome!! Loved it. Service was good as well as the Mai Tai's.

Island casual for the most part. Some people dressed up a little ( dress shorts and collared shirt) but not fancy dress by any means.

On the sand at Kalapaki Beach, Duke’s is dedicated to legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku, Hawaii’s Ambassador of Aloha. The restaurant’s open-air design offers stunning, sweeping ocean views while the 30 foot waterfall plunges into a koi pond below that meanders through the tables. Enjoy a leisurely lunch, romantic dinner, or tropical cocktail in a fun, friendly atmosphere.
