Classic Duke's! Great spot to have a cocktail and unwind for happy hour or a sit down dinner. Great island vibe with great service and live music. Food is better than I even expected.

Duke's locations are widespread in Hawai'i. This location, like most is very good. While good fish dishes are offered, there more mainland-oriented menu offers good variety for visitors, although local/native Hawaiian dishes are few. Bar offerings are plentiful and good quality, and desserts are decadent....More

Another birthday celebration at this yummy place. The evening we visited they had live entertainment and local music. Always the best cocktails, and the food was delicious and plenty to share. Nice beach location

Located across from the sand. Pano view. The wife and I split the rib plate and both had the house salad. Food is really good. Try to get a seat along the boardwalk for best view

A little disappointed in the service but food was good. On the beach but set way back so not directly on beach. Not very busy so atmosphere could have been better. Overall ok. Chickens everywhere

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.
