    Our spinach salad was great but so much smaller than before. Kind of disappointed since I used to be a regular at the Alki location and was given a much larger dish. Let me preface, I’m not a large person but can consume the large spinach salad easily. Hard to even imagine the “small” portion.

    I love the new location. We sat inside at a window seat and it's a nice view. outside would've been even better, but we didn't want to wait. The food was delicious and the staff friendly and efficient. My one annoyance was having to pay for parking, but at least it was convenient parking and easy to find a spot.

    It started off a little rocky with the waiter telling us we couldn’t sit at a certain spot because they didn’t have a waiter but after a while when we insisted on sitting at a window seat they relinquished and we got a waiter and the service was great from that point on. Carlos our waiter was very very awesome.

    Although the food was very good the price for one rockfish taco and cup of clam chowder seemed a bit high. The parking was reasonable and sitting on the deck was nice.

    A good family friendly restaurant (bar the group of pot belly middle aged white men in suits blocking the door, too ignorant to realise and too self important to apologise… I was carry my 2 year old daughter and 4 week old son and none of not one even held the door they were blocking). I would describe the food as “comfort” but slightly over priced

    Nice views, but the food is a little overpriced for the quality. I guess you pay a premium for the waterfront location. Good family friendly place but prepare for higher than normal entree prices.

    The food was excellent both times we had dinner on our vacation in Seattle. The service the first visit was outstanding and the second visit was dysfunctional with the drinks being the only part that was efficient. Didn’t appreciate having to repeatedly ask the server to bring the food. Would still visit Duke’s again because the food and ambiance on the water is great.

    I'm from Indiana. Based on reviews, I decided to try Duke's Seafood Restaurant at Lake Union location on the West Coast - gotta be excellent, right? Not so much! I got the clam chowder (probably the worst I've had in any state - herbs masked the flavor - I would not have known it was clam chowder). I also ordered the Prawn, Scallop & Crab “Un”Cake Mixed Grill. Weathervane scallops are supposed to be larger than bay scallops; however, the menu was mistaken - they were definitely small scallops - certainly the same size as bay scallops. And, the flavor was fishy and so very disappointing. Three very small scallops came with the plate - I ate two - that's all I could stomach. They were the worst I've ever had - anywhere! Prawns on menus in the Midwest are usually good-sized shrimp. I'd say large. Those on my plate at Duke's were small. They tasted good - but pretty much one bite per shrimp. And, the crab cake, it was filled with crabmeat, but very stringy, and a darker shade of crabmeat. Good crabcakes should be full of big chunks of white crab meat, not stringy, claw meat. So, overall, I would not return to this restaurant for top seafood fare. Overpriced, overrated, and not very good, overall. Its sad that I can go to an upscale seafood restaurant in Indiana and get high quality, delicious fresh seafood prepared beautifully, but in Seattle, at Duke's, I cannot get the expected quality I was hoping for.

    Great location, great view, great food, great service. My only suggestion would be for the restaurant to consider adding shades to the patio. It was very hot in the direct sun! Other than that, it was a lovely evening. I do recommend and I will be coming back.

    There are quite a few seafood restaurants in Seattle to choose from. We are SO glad we chose Dukes. We each had the 3 course meal with the crab cake. Best crab cake ever! The clam chowder is superb. Bonus: a great local (Washington) wine list. Very busy harbour is fun to watch. Short Uber ride from Downtown.

    Relaxing Marina front sitting. We had rockfish taco, very large in size. Overall tasty but fish was dry and not flaky as I really hoped for. Blood orange margarita was fantastic. Complimentary bread was warm and very tasty. Surprisingly enough they had only 2 oysters varieties on Saturday night. A bit disappointed with oysters selection but those I had were fresh. Overall not a bad experience and we will be back after some time.

    Really really impressed by the food at Duke’s Seafood Lake Union. It was our very first time at a Duke’s here in Seattle. Our server was very polite and prompt. The food also came out very fast, which was also a bonus. Only small downer was the decor and furnishings. I had expected a little nicer as we were celebrating my wife’s bday. From the pics I had seen online, I expected it to be a little more upscale… guess I was looking at a different location perhaps. Nonetheless, it was a great experience and we plan to return next time we are out this way. Fully recommend for the entire family.

    Food was fine, nothing special, but very overpriced (with one major annoyance). One of our party liked the ingredients of the $30 Chopped Seafood Salad (with scallops and prawns), but can't eat seafood -- so she asked if she could substitute grilled chicken. Waiter said he could probably do this, but there would certainly be an upcharge... and we said sure, whatever. But seriously? Going from expensive scallops & prawns to chicken? Sure enough, he charged us an extra $10, making this a $40 grilled chicken salad.
