Named in honor of the one and only Duke Kahanamoku, Duke’s Beach House Maui lets their genuine island spirit guide everything they do. At this Honua Kai Resort and Spa restaurant, they put their full focus on transforming fresh, local ingredients into magnificent works of art. Their traditional culinary techniques build bold flavor in every dish, while their artistic plating presentations promise to leave you wowed.

On top of that, their location right off Kaanapali North Beach lands you in the perfect place to enjoy your classic island fare. Their open-air eatery lets you soak in the beautiful views of the lush green shoreline, golden beach, and brilliant blue ocean beyond. You’re so close to the ocean, in fact, that you can smell the saltwater on the air and hear the waves crashing against the shore.

As you gaze in awe at the views, the staff busy themselves in making sure you have the finest dining experience around. The servers know how to feel wholly attentive without interrupting the flow of the meal. They’ll check in at all the right times to make sure you have full drinks and everything else you need for an amazing meal.

With a such a magical dining experience awaiting, it’s no surprise that they stay booked solid all day long. When it comes to dinner, they are usually booked out three months, so request your table well ahead of your trip. Breakfast and lunch are less popular times to come by, however. So, if you’re willing to wait, you can usually get a seat within about an hour after arriving.

Swing by to try their:

Beach Boy Burrito
If you have a big day ahead, get well prepared with the Beach Boy Burrito. They create this delicious meal by expertly preparing sausage, bacon, and eggs. Then, they pile up those three magical ingredients in a flour tortilla along with a cheddar cheese blend, avocado, roasted tomatillo sauce, and pico de gallo. Homestyle potatoes or fried rice lands alongside depending on what you fancy.

Crab and Mac Nut Wontons
The Crab and Mac Nut Wontons are the perfect way to kick off your meal in style. This starter features wonton wrappers filled with fresh crabmeat mixed with cream cheese and macadamia nuts. Once they’re perfectly golden brown, the filled wontons slide onto the plate alongside mustard plum sauce for dipping.

Roasted Tristan Lobster
When you want to enjoy seafood excellence in every bite, you cannot go wrong with the Roasted Tristan Lobster. This popular entrée comes with two Tristan de Cunha lobster tails roasted in a basil garlic glaze. To that, they add jasmine farro rice plus lemon wedges and butter to splash your lobster around in before taking each bite.

Just like their sister restaurant, Kimo’s, Dukes is well known for their decadent Hula Pie. This fan favorite features a huge slice of macadamia nut ice cream on a chocolate cookie crust. Over that, they pour on the hot fudge, macadamia nuts, and whipped cream to finish it off right. You definitely need to get a taste whenever you come in, so do your best to save room for dessert. Keep in mind: It’s big enough for two, but you probably won’t want to share a bite after getting a taste.
