Description: 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.

Duke's on Kauai, located both at the edge of the Marriott Lagoons Resort and fronting a local beach is an ideal setting. Dining on the Lanai is a window onto a great blending of local folks arriving with their beach chairs as well as visitors feeling out the lay of the land. The food is quite consistent over the years. On this occasion we shared the Kalua pulled pork sandwich and the Fire Grilled Shrimp Salad, both of which were very good. Pua was our server and she is dynamite! Just a great Hawaiian setting to be sure and a great place to stop for a late lunch if you have a later flight.

My spouse brought me here during our vacation, the whole of Waikiki had changed so much in the last 6 years, but Duke's still had its old charm. Authentic Hawaiian decor, relaxed environment, delicious food, and the Salad bar!!! If you want to taste locale Hawaiian flavour like you have to eat here!!!

We love Dukes. We have been to the restaurant on Waikiki, Ka'anapali and at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club. We always have a selection of fish and salad bar (except Maui which does not have a salad bar). We treat this as our Anniversary, Birthday and Whatever day celebration meal.

The food was excellent. The views of the bay were great. Our server, Dante, really made the dinner even better.

Haven't been to Dukes in 20 years. Delicious fresh fish with a salad bar that is tremendous. The service is impeccable and of course Hula Pie for dessert. This is a restaurant chain in Hawaii but it was definitely one of our best meals in 2 weeks.
