Duke's takes great pride in the provenance of their food. I love the unique items on their menu! Plus they have a fantastic bar with a lot of local and craft Brews to choose from. Live music is always a benefit on the weekend!

Duke's has the best beer selections in the area. It's a constantly rotating set of draft beers. A great variety of choices too. The food is always really good and varied selection of dishes also.

Outstanding food choices. If you are looking for something a bit different, interesting menu, this is the place. If you have vegetarian friends Duke's is a great choice and is affordable. Outstanding beer menu! One of our favorite spots.

Highly recommend Duke's. The picture speaks for itself! The burgers, Mac and Cheese, cheese fries, and of course the beer selection are fantastic.
