I have a severe allergy to citric acid which makes going out to dinner difficult at times - and almost impossible in a restaurant that doesn't make their food on site. When I approached the staff at Duke's to see if there was anything I...More

On the sand at Kalapaki Beach, Duke’s is dedicated to legendary surfer Duke Kahanamoku, Hawaii’s Ambassador of Aloha. The restaurant’s open-air design offers stunning, sweeping ocean views while the 30 foot waterfall plunges into a koi pond below that meanders through the tables. Enjoy a leisurely lunch, romantic dinner, or tropical cocktail in a fun, friendly atmosphere.
