Fodor's Review

Locals often take visiting friends and family from the mainland to this hotel restaurant for the beachfront setting—it's right in front of the famed Canoes surf break in Waikiki. Named for the father of modern surfing, and filled with Duke Kahanamoku memorabilia, Duke's is a popular open-air bar and steak-and-seafood grill. Two words: salad bar. Duke's has one—a huge one—which gives you an idea of the aim-to-please food. Pick one of the four catches of the day—such as mahimahi and opa (moonfish)—then choose one of four preparations. The prime rib and huli huli (rotisserie) chicken are also good options. Don't forget to try its famous Hula Pie made with macadamia nut ice cream piled high on a cookie crust and topped with chocolate fudge and whipped cream. The atmosphere can be raucous when live music by A-list Hawaiian performers fills the air. Sit back and enjoy your mai tai. You can experience many of the same great flavors and pay half the price by siting in the bar.

The ultimate waikiki beach bar experience

The atmosphere is awesome, when you come in from the street, its very fancy. But come in from the beach, and your right in the bar enjoying your favorite drink and food dish. Try the Mai-Tai, it is awesome. The catch of the day is great, there is nothing better than fresh caught fish. Everyone is very friendly and I loved every minute I was there. There is nothing like sitting right next to the beach, enjoying a drink and exquisite food.
