At King and Duke, we showcase locally sourced ingredients through simple, yet focused hearth cooking. Our goal is not to manipulate food, but to accentuate the natural flavors of our products through slower methods of cooking and the smoke of the wood fire. Through this primitive technique, constantly moving and manipulating the live fire, we invest exacting attention to the preparation of each and every dish.

Our managing partner, Ford Fry, named the restaurant after two characters in Huckleberry Finn, “The King” and “The Duke," a pair of grifters who ‘put on airs’ and pretended to be royalty, when in fact they were a couple of hillbillies who lived in the woods. With our slightly mischievous ways ☺, a huge focus on quality, yet a primitive cooking style and down-to earth atmosphere, Chef Fry felt like it was the perfect name for our newest restaurant.

The staff was amazing and accommodated our large group request (which was submitted with little notice). The food, as always, was a showstopper. I couldn't be happier with how this event turned out. Thank you King+Duke!

We love this restaurant but this time the food wasn’t the best. My burger was completely burnt but I didn’t want to complain since we already sent back the two leg of lamb entrees. The meat was very tough to chew which isn’t how lamb should be. They also took off a very popular starter which was unfortunate. Our service was amazing though and the manager made it right.

Excellent experience all around. We were warmly greeted by the hostess team and had a great seat in the restaurant. The cocktails were creative and more importantly, delicious. The dishes were well proportioned and flavors on point. We somehow haven't been to King and Duke but the service, food and environment make this an immediate new favorite! Well done!

Good was very good, menu I see pretty limited but good was tasty and good quality. I had the lamb shank as an entree and it was amazing. Scallops were delicious, perfectly cooked with a nice buttery finish. Beef carpaccio was probably my least favorite app and the lamb chop appetizer was fall off the bone delicious.

Service started off with a bang but after the appetizers came out it was hard to get our waiters attention. It did get crowded closer to 8 o clock, but overall a great experience. Spent three hours from start to finish. Pound cake was a great way to finish the meal.

Thanks for a great birthday celebration!!
Trevor was great at accommodating us by upgrading us to a private room when we had reserved 2 tables, one for 10 and other for 5. When it was taking too long to have tables put together for my party to be seated together, he was kind to offer us the private room for nothing!!
Melody was also very patient and provided great service. Thanks again King and Duke!!

We had a great time the food was good and our waiter was nice friendly and had great stories on the restaurant. But the only reason I gave it a four was our waiter got the order wrong! I order fries and my friend order salad and we both got fries! All in all it was fun and loved the open fire cooking! Just wished the waiter had ask if eveything was right not just good!🙂

Fabulous waiter:) great chicken wing appetizer or shareable as they call it; horrible broccoli crown-could have made that myself (melted messy Velvetta cheese, limp oily broccoli just horrible), duck came out after my hubby ‘s meal( he was almost done eating) then duck was cold.. just won’t go again:(( won’t recommend.. was expecting 5* place but maybe they are not striving for a Canoe or Chops type of service and ambiance???

The food at King and Duke was excellent! We visited for our anniversary and the staff went out of their way to congratulate us and they kept bringing complimentary small samples to our table! I loved that it is fine dining without the stuffy atmosphere and that you can dress casual but still enjoy amazing food!

The only redeeming factor of our experience here was the bartender and his delicious drinks and interesting banter at the bar prior to dinner. Our server was ok but forgetful. The food was overpriced and average. When we walked in we had high hopes. Place is dope, aesthetically it's a winner but the quality of the food is lacking.

Food was really good. We were rushed and it was really disappointing. They brought food out so fast and handed us a bill before we could even get half of a bottle of wine finished. Too expensive to feel like fast food service.

First time there. We had a terrific waitress, Nicole. My husband had the burger which was huge, but should be for the price tag. He said it was the best burger he ever had.
I had a Brussels salad and swordfish skewer. Was excellent.
Will definitely be back.
The staff from host, Marquise to everyone else was great!
