We just stopped in for a drink. Didn't have to wait too long and had a great seat with a view of the surrounding grounds and beach.

Dukes it one of the only places open past 9pm. It saved us when we got hungry late. You must try the Ahi Poke and a few Mai Tai's. Don't forget to finish the meal with the Pie😎

Yummy seafood and great service! Macadamia encrusted fish was to die for. The Oreo ice cream dessert was incredible. Beautiful views while eating.

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.
