We ate at the bar a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was really good. Their beer selection is always excellent.

We've generally been happy with Dukes and have been there many times. This is our first time since their re-do earlier in the year. We sat outside on a beautiful CL evening. We ordered the Margarita Flatbread and James Beard Blended Burger and two house...More

Hard to tell if Duke's is a bar first or a restaurant destination. A Saturday night visit found Duke's a loud and energy charged bar, with good vibes and great tap choices. But after a short wait, and entrance to the restaurant section, the mood...More
