Very slow service. Overpriced food. I had Lobster Pernod chowder and it was rather starchy instead of creamy. I guess they are trying to cut their costs. Also I ordered steamer clams and they were so bitter, I do not know why. I asked to

The location is great and very convenient to downtown. The chowder sampler is spectacular. The staff are friendly-- sometimes hilarious-- and very helpful.

I've been coming to Duke's for the past 3 or so years for business and some late-night music. Don't miss the dowtown/lake location. It is a lot of fun. Some of the best service I have had. The blonde day bartender is great and there is

Pros: service, view and late night band

Cons: parking and $$

The clam chowder was like paste.( I had a great chowder at Pikes Market ).Duke"s was loaded with corn starch to make it too thick. Bleeech! I had the blackened salmon, that wasover cooked and dry. My waiter was nice, but rushed us through

Pros: Good location

For a memorably good time and exceptional food, ask for "Dillon" at the Green Lake location to be your waiter. As a former chef at Duke's he can recommend the best of the menu and leave you grinning at his comments and friendliness.\r

Pros: Outstanding seafood, "Dillon" at Green Lake location

Cons: parking, can be noisy, pricy

The Lake Union location is a favorite of mine. During the Summer it's a must stop kind of place. The patio is great! During the winter it takes on a cozy element and the chowder is just the thing to warm those hard to reach cold spots!!

Pros: Crab chowder, delicious sourdough bread

Cons: the steak, the scallops, the prices

It's not that good. Great atmosphere, but the food wasn't good, or even par. I had a seafood pasta that was rather bland, and only had three clams - two of which were open. My friend had fish-n'-chips which were over cooked and dry.

This is a great place to go for lunch! They have great food - including salads. The staff is friendly too. Whenever I'm in downtown, I like to stop here for lunch. Their prices are average for downtown, but the food is worth it. They have different variatons of clam chowder and they are all wonderful! Try the spinach salad too - it's wonderful!

The service is pleasent, with great view of Lake Union. Unfortunately, due to the location the prices are a bit higher than the West Seattle and Greenlake locations. The sizes suffer a bit as well, but the chowder is excellent.

Duke's has great food at awesome prices, and the chowder is out of this world. We typically go to the Greenlake location, but visited the Lake Union restaurant once. It will be the last time. The server we had was domineering,

I friend was to take me out for lunch and mentioned Duke's. I have never even heard of it. We got a table immediately and it was packed (even in the lunch hour). I ordered fish and chips and expected the norm. It was so tasty that I overstuffed myself. The perfect lunch and right on the water. What a nice way to spend your lunch hour.

I have been, and will continue to be, a big fan. However, I don't understand the recent upward menu price adjustments, e,g; NY steak now $30---was in low $20s in a few months ago---kid's 1 pc. fish & chips $4.50---adult's 2 pc (the same

Have to say, I've seen other claims by many restaurants that "their's" was the best - Duke's was by far the BEST I've ever had anywhere!
