Casual Atmosphere


The biggest reason I started Duke’s was because I can’t stand fussy atmosphere. I wanted a special place where guests could relax and just be themselves, where all would feel welcome, and for 40+ years, I’m proud to say that we have delivered. Duke’s is a favorite for families celebrating a loved one’s birthday, for couples enjoying a romantic dinner, for friends meeting for a bite and a drink after work. All of our locations, from the neighborhood feeling of Duke’s on Green Lake to the metropolitan feel of Duke’s in Bellevue, Duke’s is a gathering place.

Happy Hour is lively with a menu filled with innovative cocktails, beers, and wines to complement incredible Happy Hour special dishes. We don’t believe in cutting corners at Duke’s, or skimping on anything, which means our Happy Hour bites are the same size as our regular menu items and often make a meal. In fact, our Famous Bloody Mary, with its two grilled prawns and veggies, is a meal in itself.

Outdoor Dining
Duke's Chowder House on the water in Tacoma

By mid-May, we celebrate the opening of Deck Season! Except for Bellevue, which is downtown in Lincoln Square South, all of our restaurants have incredible deck dining experiences. They all look over water, and some are actually on the water on piers. All have great views to watch sunsets, have heat towers to stave off cool nights, and stay open until closing. Our Alki Beach location offers a gorgeous view of the Seattle skyline and Cascade Mountains over Elliot Bay, and soon we’ll be able to enjoy the majesty of the sun setting on the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound from our location on Shilshole Bay (coming in 2019). We are passionate about creating great food and surrounding our guests with good atmosphere. We take our food seriously, but not ourselves! Come join us at any one of our locations – or all of them – for a memorable and delicious experience.

Parties and Meetings

We love a great party. Many of our restaurants have smaller party spaces, but the new Lake Union location, opening late 2018, will be the mother of all party spaces with 6,000 square feet of interior space and a huge deck to take the party outside. Contact us today to book your next celebration.
