Duke's, Kauai

Looking out onto Kalapaki Bay from its location on the grounds of the Kauai Marriot Resort, Duke’s is the perfect place for anyone looking casual oceanfront dining. The restaurant is named after Duke Kahanamoku, the famous Waikiki-born surfing legend and Olympic gold medallist. The cuisine at Duke’s is distinctly Hawaiian. Serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, many dishes based on age-old and well-loved island recipes.

Although he represented the US in the Olympics for two decades and won many medals, Duke Kahanamoku was equally well known for his sportsmanship and humor as he was for his exceptional speed and grace as a swimmer and surfer. That spirt is embodied in Duke’s restaurant. With a welcoming atmosphere, the menu at this oceanfront oasis reflects the sense of fellowship that makes Hawaii famous all over the world. The dinner menu is comprised of a selection of pupus, salads, fresh fish and seafood, a number of island favorites, grilled steaks, sides and desserts. There is also a special keiki menu, offering a range of entrées and desserts to tempt young palates. The bar at the Kauai Marriott – Barefoot Bar - also offers a selection of beverage to suit virtually every palate – wines, beers, cocktails, beach drinks and two different types of Duke’s famous mai tais. As well as the  drinks, visitors are offered a selection of food from the bar - pupus, salads, flatbreads, sandwiches, burgers, tacos, fresh fish and desserts. The bar also features an Aloha Hour every day from 4.00pm until 6.00pm with live music on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays to coincide with the Aloha Hour. Live music is provided on Fridays and Saturdays from 8.30pm until 10.30pm.
