With over 300 feet of picture windows out to the Pacific, Duke's boasts one of the longest oceanfront sites on the west coast. You'll experience the spirit of Aloha here from the crashing waves, Hawaiian influenced cuisine and the genuine friendly service that is Duke's signature.

Seafood Restaurant
“Stopping at this no-frills cafe is a rite of passage for PCH travelers. The trick is finding a time when a line isn’t snaking out the door into the parking lot. Whether it’s golden fried fish 'n' chips, cups of chowder, lobsters or grilled mahi mahi, a stop at this roadside stand across from the sand is a must for every beachgoer. Order in the little cafe, grab a picnic table on the hill, chow down and watch the waves from your perch.”
