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.

Our first time here for dinner. (We usually come for brunch)

Our server was excellent - he even made me PERFECT sweet tea as they only have “unsweetened” 😩

The food was impeccable.

Love this place

Use to like it here but simply poor food quality. Tomahawk steak served completely underdone ...twice. Squash blossoms weren’t really squash blossoms but rather a few shavings of squash blossoms but on top of bread.

We LOVE this establishment! This was the first time we had brunch at King +Duke and from cocktails to entree, it didn’t disappoint. I had Eggs Benedict and my husband had Quiche. By far, THIS was THE BEST Eggs Benedict that I’ve eaten. The biscuit and the prosciutto made it supreme. The quiche looked like a giant slice of cake and my husband said it was delicious. Callie our server was BEYOND sweet and knowledgeable. She has such a smooth and subtle sense of humor.
The day and dining were splendid!

Both my husband and I have loved this restaurant since it opened its doors. Each time we visit we fall in love all over again with the food and vibe of the restaurant. I don’t think I have ever gotten the same meal 2x and have loved everything I have ever ordered, including the cocktails.

We wish our experience had been better. We were there in the early afternoon on Mother's Day so we expected it to be busy, but it was actually only about two-thirds full. We ordered drinks and appetizers and got them right away (a giant cinnamon roll, which was good but would have been great hot) and warm donuts. The problem was with the entrees. We ordered basics off a simplified brunch menu....cheese omelette, French toast, french fries, bacon. The server put our order in at 2:19, but at 3:04 we still didn't have our meal. By that time, we needed to leave for the airport and had to ask for our items to be boxed. Again, we expected Mother's Day to be busy. But 45 minutes is a long time to wait for a meal. What we ate from the box in the car was pretty good, although only mildly warm, so we'd like to try again when they're on a regular menu and maybe running a more efficient kitchen. The servers were apologetic, kind and informative.....we were all on the same team wanting a great experience.

Great spot for Mother’s day brunch. Only problem was my sister hated the strawberry yogurt item. Once she requested honey she could eat more of it but she still only ate half. I suggest serving it with a small amount of honey for those who expect the yogurt to be sweet.

Went for brunch. Everything was great except for the steak and eggs, specifically the steak. The flavor profile they were going for was either a failure in design or execution. Also, some of the what seemed to be intentionally ‘charred’ sections of the meat were more burnt that I would have liked. I came in really excited about this meal and my first K&D brunch but left feeling ‘meh’. I’ll come back given other experiences I’ve had here but will steer well clear of this dish.

Overall, this just wasn't what we would expect out of a fine dining restaurant. We ordered the muscles to share and had to send them back because they were simply tasteless. They were beautiful, but neither my husband nor I could eat them and when our server noticed we weren't eating them we just couldn't lie. (We've never once sent anything back so they were really that bad.) The staff was very nice and did bring us an order of shrimp instead- which were pretty good. I ordered the Scallops as my entree- they had more taste but were incredibly salty to the point that I just couldn't finish them. My husband ordered the short ribs, which were excellent. However, for a dinner that was $200 (including drinks) we just expected better.
Also, despite the fact that there were plenty of open tables, they seated everyone right next to each other (like 20 inches away) so that we were basically having dinner with the people next to us. Not a huge deal but also not what we had in mind for celebrating our anniversary.

The small plates are they way to go. I had the Pork Porterhouse for an entree and it was just mediocre and a little tough but the sauce was good. The other people at the table had the halibut and really enjoyed it. The Chocolate Ice Cream cake is worth the calories.
