Service was superb, the food was mouth-watering, words fail to describe. We dined on filet mignon, potatoes, and asparagus. I couldn't imagine a better dining experience.

Our steaks were cooked to perfection - try the Steak Diane - it's a great price point and just the right amount of meat, veggies and potatoes. The fresh bread is also great. Nice wine list. Excellent service. Miss the table-side caesar salad. Beautiful dining experience so ask for a table by the large, famous Teddy Roosevelt painting.

Thank KellyRudy

Duane's is the go-to place for special-occasion dining in Riverside. Located in the Mission Inn, the place drips with ambiance and old school dining traditions, including tuxedoed wait staff and sommeliers.

Duane's has a couple of signature dishes that we have consistently enjoyed over the years: one is a magnificent chateaubriand that is carved table-side and the other is a traditional Caesar salad made the original way with raw eggs, fresh lettuce and anchovies.

On a recent visit to Duane's, we ordered the Caesar salad and were told by our server that it had been removed from their menu. She offered no explanation or apology, but instead pointed us to some lame concoction of a salad on the menu with the word Caesar in its name, but containing no Caesar salad ingredients, other than lettuce.

This will likely be our last visit to Duane's. For a restaurant to yank one of its best dishes off the menu without apology or concern is a sign of pure arrogance on management's part. Perhaps it was too much effort for the servers to make up the salads table-side or perhaps the owner's attorney was worried about the risk of serving food with raw eggs. In any case, Duane owes its loyal customers better than this.

For this capricious and abrupt menu change, Duane's will receive a "poor" rating this time around.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for being such a loyal fan of Duane’s Prime Steaks and Seafood Restaurant; we appreciate your feedback regarding your recent dining experience. While we pride ourselves on offering an old-world, traditional style, we regularly review the sales of our menu offerings and offer fresh new choices to replace slower selling menu items. The tableside Caesar Salad was removed for that reason just over a year ago. We replaced it with another popular salad that you would find at a traditional steakhouse, the Wedge Salad. Our version, the Crispy Caesar Wedge Salad, with crisp iceberg lettuce and Caesar Dressing, has been very popular and is one of our top selling menu items. We certainly appreciate your past business and hope that you will reconsider visiting Duane’s again.
