    Our server was very knowledgeable, when I said we were gluten-free our server asked me if we are celiac. Which made me feel a little bit more comfortable. He said our food was prepared separately which was a nice comfort. The food it's self would have been amazing if it wasn't so salty. Not used to that much salt in my food. Other than that it was a great environment by the water.

    Limited gluten-free options. I had the ribs and they were delicious! Waitstaff was well educated on options

    Highly recommend this place! I have celiac really bad and this place was soooo accommodating!! We had Avalon as our server and she was so knowledgeable and she ever had the manager Scott Engel come over and talk to me about their precautions and my meal! I got the lobster tail and I ordered shrimp over steamed rice with BBQ sauce. My husband got BBQ ribs. All gluten free and carefully prepared. We also got the Strawberry Sorbet for dessert! So yummy! Scott the manager visited our table multiple times to check how I liked the food and so did our server Avalon! They were both so knowledgeable and so caring it was such a wonderful experience! So delicious and so nice to go to a place that cares and understands what you go through daily!!

    very rude hostess when i asked about gluten free. i ordered the gluten free nachos. i asked the waitress and the person that brought our food out to confirm it was gluten free both said yes. After we started eating the waitress came back out and asked if i was serious about it needing to be gluten free and proceeded to tell me they were fried in the same fryer as gluten and they were not gluten free.

    Low rating just to catch your attention. Not to be confused with Dukes barefoot bar. The restaurant is open for dinner service. The bar does not offer a GF menu.

    Not much for GF. My 12 year old son ate a cheeseburger without anything else on his plate. It looked pretty sad, I ended up going to ABC to get him a bag of chips to go with it. The fries are cross-contaminated.

    We ate two nights ago at Dukes(the one up stairs) they had a GF menu and staff was knowledgeable about GF. The entree came with a salad bar. The items in the salad bar had cross contamination such as dressings were dripped into the other dressing. When I asked about getting a gf dressing they suggested oil and vinegar (not what I wanted). The fish was good but not great. Tonight we ate at Dukes barefoot bar down stairs. They didn't have GF menu but the waitress suggested nachos when I asked if they were cooked in oil with gluten (cross contaminated) she said they come in a bag. I had her check with the cooks and YES they are cooked in oil with gluten. I got grilled fish tacos with soft corn tortillas that were very good. I double checked several on the items as I was not confident they were GF. The waitress went and checked with the chef on all my questions. I would go back but I would be sure to triple check items.

    To clarify...there are two parts of this restaurant. The lunch menu, downstairs and on the beach does NOT have a GF menu. The upstairs, dinner restaurant does have a GF menu and it is delicious. We had dinner there 4 out of 8 nights we were in Kauai. I am Celiac and extremely sensitive, had no problems with Duke's. Three of the nights I had fish (Monchong) with steamed rice and one night I had steak with mashed potatoes. Every one of the meals was proceeded with the salad bar. As I said, delicious and no gluten issues!!

    I ordered off the gluten free menu and the first thing I wanted she said "oh we can't make that gluten free". What?! Then I ordered fish tacos but when they came out they were in a flour tortilla. Thankfully I recognized it before I took a bite and sent it back. They brought be new tacos with corn tortillas but they were hard, the fish was gray, and at that point I was too scared to eat thinking I'd for sure be glutened. My lava flow drink was great though! I won't be going back.
