This place has been great for years. Only complaint is that it is popular, so call days ahead for reservation, or prepare to wait an hour or two during busy times. Once you get in the atmosphere, food, music, is great and decent pricing too....Well doneMore

Loved the restaurant vibes, very tropical. Food Service was very fast. Ordered and it seemed to come out in minutes. I definitely think it should be tried at least once on your visit to Oahu!

This is my honest review. We booked Duke's a month earlier and we were exited to finally dine here. Service was very good, ambience was good with music from a local. However the food was mediocre which is a shame because of the location. The...ribs and wings were dry and warm not hot. Both Ribs and chicken tasted like thy were boiled and rubbed with barbecue sauce. Try BBQ from Uncle Bo's and compare with them. Honesty wasn't worth waiting a month to dine.More

Dukes is a must visit when you visit Hawaii. The food, service and the view were awesome. You will need to make reservations or be prepared for a long wait. We had a great time and will be back. The Hula Pie is a must...do.More

Have eaten here several times when we come to Waikiki. Definitely worth the stop! Service was great and Troy was our server today who was so outstanding! Everyone from check in to seating us were great and so friendly. Whatever they are doing for training...for their staff, more restaurants should learn from them. They all made us feel special. Food was wonderful and the drinks were amazing. We all had different dishes and not one person (six of us) were disappointed. Can't beat the view and the atmosphere and interior design has a casual elegance to it that makes it feel what you would expect "Hawaii" to feel like. Love dining here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Mai Tai's are great as well as the Pog mimosa. Can't wait to go back!More

Remember the Jimmy Buffett songs, Dukes on Sunday, this is the spot. Usual Hawaii Covid, checks , than a very very leisurely lunch with plenty of cocktails thrown in. Very very cool , laid back spot. Don’t miss ot

Just had dinner with my husband. We both had the Salad Bar for $5 with an Entree. My Prime Rib wasn’t good, salty and dry, untrimmed. He had lobster tail and was good. The salad bar saved the night, especially the quinoa salad. Service was...fast, so fast it came when I was starting my salad. I say go for the experience.More

Made a reservation 2 months before my trip and I’m so glad I did. The wait when we arrived was 2 1/2 hours and we were seated almost immediately. The restaurant was so neat and we had a great view of the water. The food...was awesome I highly recommend the teriyaki sirloin. It was to die for. I’m so glad we ate here during our stay and the next time we’re on the island we’ll definitely be back.More

I think you can do days in advance, but of the three times we went, we only called ahead once, about 90 minutes before. Expect to wait about 45-60 minutes if you don't have a reservation, but they always got us in. Don't... More
