Duke's is the latest reincarnation of
dining experiences at the base of the Huntington Beach Pier. Throughout
the years, Huntington Beach Pier dining has included seafood themed
restaurants that tourists and locals seek near the beach. Alice
Gustafson, who once owned and operated the End Cafe on the Pier and
currently owns Alice's Breakfast in the Park,
remembers Fisherman's Grotto. It was replaced by Maxwell's which was
torn down after the last pier was lost to a storm.
With a state-of-the-art pier in place,
Duke's Huntington Beach should be here to stay. It is owned and operated
by T S Restaurants with other themed restaurants in Malibu, Del Mar,
Lake Tahoe and Hawaii.
Valet parking for restaurant guests is
available in front of Duke's (enter from Pacific Coast Highway at 1st Street) for a small fee. Take in a movie just steps away on
the second floor at Surf City
6 Theatres or stroll the Huntington Beach
Pier. Then treat yourself to some shopping or bar hopping for live
music on Huntington Beach's
Main Street. Attire is casual though you should check with the
restaurant for specific dress code. Dining is a
breeze in Huntington Beach.
