AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Slippers and shorts are the attire of choice at Duke’s, one of the top Honolulu restaurants for a casual meal, just mere footsteps from the ocean. The surf-themed restaurant celebrates the legacy of Olympic waterman Duke Kahanamoku, Waikiki’s favorite son. It’s always crowded, but all those tables of smiling diners are part of its appeal. A buffet is available in addition to a la carte items at breakfast and lunch; at dinner, choose the fresh ahi, which is cooked according to your choice of preparation: we recommend asking for it baked in a garlic, lemon, sweet basil glaze, grilled and topped with a pineapple salsa, but you can also request to have it herb-crusted and sautéed with macadamia nuts, lime-and-chili-roasted, or seared with a papaya mustard sauce. Patrons have a rollicking time on Saturday and Sunday afternoons when popular bands play and the back patio becomes a literal party on the beach.
