Oceanview dining during sunset is an unforgettable experience, especially here in Hawaii, but it’s par for the course at Duke’s Waikiki, which offers guests a great backdrop for a romantic evening out or meal with the family.

Right now, Duke’s Waikiki offers pickup through its website and delivery through Grubhub, and also welcomes guests for dine-in service.

“We’re here when you need us,” says general manager Keli‘i Gouveia, who’s been with the eatery for more than a decade. “It is an entirely safe environment to dine, and we are doing our best to give our community an experience away from the stress.”

Aside from the regular menu, Duke’s Waikiki is also offering guests some special daily grinds, including Taco Tuesdays, a prime rib buffet on Thursdays and crab legs on Sundays. On Tuesdays, choose from hand-held morsels like Baja Fish Tacos, Kalua Pork Tacos, Chipotle Chicken Tacos and 7-Spice Shrimp Tacos, as well as other festive favorites like a Steak Quesadilla, Carne Asada Nachos, Shrimp Poisson Cru and more. Oh, and Pacifico beers and margaritas are on special, too.

The Prime Rib Supper Buffet every Thursday features a Slow Roasted Double Signature Ranch Prime Rib — of course! — and other entrées like a Macadamia Nut Crusted Fresh Catch, Huli Huli Chicken and Kabocha Squash Ravioli. Visit dukeswaikiki.com for the full menu.

“During this lockdown, coming here is an easy and safe way to get out of the house, especially since parks, pools and beaches are closed,” adds Gouveia. “It’s safe and clean, and we are taking this time very seriously.”
