Restaurant of the Week: Duke’s Seafood Bellevue

With seven locations across The Sound, a sustainably-sourced menu and legendary “Seafood Sleuth” Duke Moscrip at its helm, Duke’s Seafood is a Seattle favorite that always delivers. Located inside Lincoln Square South, the Bellevue location offers incredible seafood, service and value in a prime location.

Duke Moscrip knows seafood well. The renowned chef, author and sustainability advocate has been delivering a quality seafood experience to guests at restaurants for years. Guests at Duke’s Seafood know that they are in for a reliably solid experience and the freshest seafood prepared to perfection each time they visit. Moscrip is so confident is his product that he can “personally guarantee that you’ll enjoy your meal, or you don’t pay.”


Duke’s Seafood provides a warm and cozy atmosphere that is perfect for an intimate dinner for two or a casual lunch with the family. With its nautical decor, the location feels carefully designed with guests’ comfort in mind. It aims to provide a place for visitors to relax and enjoy good food with good company, with all the first-rate shopping and entertainment of The Bellevue Collection just steps away.


Though its neighborly hospitality and cozy-chic environment is an experience in itself, the wild-caught seafood is what brings fans back to Duke’s Seafood again and again. Each oceanic dish on Duke’s menu is sustainably caught and prepared with quality in mind, with some of our favorites including the award-winning, New England-style clam chowder (among the best in town) with nitrate-free bacon, cream and herbs, served up in a freshly baked bread bowl; the cheekily named Dungeness Crab-Stuffed Just For The Halibut, featuring Kodiak Island Halibut stuffed with Dungeness Crab, wild Mexican prawns, imported cheeses, a pretty pesto accent and a lemon beurre blanc; or the more elevated comfort go-to, the Oh My Cod! Fish & Chips with Blue North Pacific Cod, panko bread crumbs, Mac and Jack’s Beer (Duke’s favorite) and homemade tartar sauce. 


Be sure to save room for dessert and try the What’s Her Name’s Carrot Cake, a dense and spongey cake with scratch-made cream cheese frosting and a tangy raspberry coulis that is surprisingly also gluten-free. Or grab a slice (or two) of the I Want You So Bad Marionberry Pie with local Woodland marionberries and a heaping scoop of Lopez Island Creamery vanilla ice cream on top. 


To wash every delicious bite down, Duke’s Seafood offers a variety of libations, including handcrafted “Duketails” like the Grapefruit Nirvana with Deep Eddy Grapefruit vodka, all-natural agave nectar, muddled fresh grapefruit, lemonade and a sweet, sugar-coated rim; and the Not for Long Island Iced Tea with Kettle One vodka, Mount Gay Black Barrel rum, Deep Eddy Sweet Tea vodka, fresh lemons, lemonade and a splash of cola. In addition to its Duketails, the spot also offers an extensive wine, bubbles and beer menu.
