Duke's Restaurant & Barefoot Bar
The biggest reason everyone gathers at this beachfront restaurant is the music and the patio sunsets. The sound is Contemporary Hawaiian and appeals to a youngish demographic. The food includes fresh fish, burgers and a tasty club sandwich. The atmosphere offers a great beach setting with traditional Hawaiian friendliness. Try the popular breakfast and lunch buffets. The adjoining bar is a fantastic place to have a drink before heading back to the beach.
We had reservations for 9 and even arrived at 8:30 (2 people). My girlfriend and I were not seated until 9:55. We watched in the waiting area as other people arrived and were seated before us. The food was mediocre and definitely not worth the price. I understand that this restaurant may have historical appeal, however, if you're looking to get decent service or decent food, this is not the place to go. You are better off just buying a T-shirt and eating somewhere else.
on a recent 10 day stay at Waikiki we found Dukes to be excellent,whether breakfast,lunch or dinner or a quick drink after a surf out the back.The service was the best we have ever experienced (but that seemed to be wherever we went) Breakfast was my favourite, an omlette cooked while you waited with whatever ingredients you picked,plus the lineup of tropical fruits was mouthwatering Definately didn't find another Breakfast in Waikiki to top this one $15.00/hd.all you can eat buffet.

Not a place for children at all. Food was not that great. My husband ordered a seafood dish and only got three shrimp on his plate and couldn't make out what kind of clumpy fish was in the dish. I dont like paying a hundred bucks for a meal and not even enjoy it or have any alcohol to go with it. I waited for two hours and still had poor service. NOT A GREAT EXPERIENCE!
I live in downtown Honolulu and ride bikes ( to prevent DWI and parking fees) with a few friends and like to spend part of a weekend afternoon or evening at Duke's at least two or three times a year, for the last 14 years! I love it. Buffet is great, music is great, bar is great, lots of people there to have fun,and talk with and see Hawaii with people from around the world. And don't forget Duke himself. Wow the pictures from the 20s! It been going there for over a decades and hope it continues long after I am gone. I am a fan. I love Wakiki. Hawaii. Duke, my home!

My husband and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon and this is one of the places we went for breakfast. He had been to Duke's before and wanted to take me there. I LOVED their breakfast buffet! It was just excellent! For the price we got so much food! The bacon was thick and very good, and they had such a huge selection and even had coconut flavored syrup for the pancakes! mmmm! It was excellent! We were also able to sit outside and had the most beautiful view of the ocean. it was so awesome and something I will never forget!

Being in this place is more like being in Japan than America. Of course, one could say that about many
places in Hawai'i but Shogun has actually won awards for it. The restaurant was named "Best Japanese" in the ...
