Duke's Restaurant & Barefoot Bar Restaurant Review: This is the first spot where tourists in-the-know head upon arrival in Waikiki. Shedding their usual garb, they throw on Aloha shirts, shorts, muumuu and slippers before heading to Duke’s for some fresh fish, fun and island hospitality. The beachfront restaurant’s atmosphere is very casual and friendly. The décor is nostalgic and reminiscent of times when the restaurant was the original site of the Outrigger Canoe Club. The setting pays homage to the famous waterman Duke Kahanamoku and the many talents of Hawaii’s first Olympic athlete. There are strolling musicians that have an endless repertoire of island songs; they will not hesitate to sing your favorite for you. Don’t bother to read past the fresh fish on the menu, though the burger here is a standout.
