A Few Kind Words
"Literally one of the best in the business! Never came out of the barber shop disappointed ever. They know exactly what they're doing and they give the best and nicest haircuts ever at a good price.
"Mike, Chris, Marcy and company are great!
"I will never visit another barber shop again. Full service barber that has that old time feel. I'm a younger guy and never really knew what it was like to go to a barber until now. These people are real professionals. Not like at your typical "stylists" at the other places. I've been going here for a year now. I've had my haircut by every barber here, and haven't had one complaint. My 5 yr old son loves it here as well. The haircuts are perfect, the conversation is great, and prices aren't bad.
"I have been going to Steve and Dukes since 1994. The only original barber is Kris, who I used to have cut my hair, but Mike cuts my hair now. Everytime I walk thru the door I am always greeted with the pleasant barbers working there. I just cant say enough about Mike, he and I pickup right were we left off regardless if its been a week or a month. I highly recommend Mike, but I know all the other barbers do great jobs and have all cut my hair over the last 20yrs. Keep up the great work Mike. I look forward to another 20yrs.
"I was very pleased after my first visit. I had both a haircut and a beard trim. The barber offered a great consultation and was able to achieve the look I wanted even though I wasn't able to explain it as clearly as I would have liked. I'll definitely be back.
"Came in from out of town and needed to quick cut. I found a number of local barbershops in Utica through Yelp - Steve & Dukes was one of them. Always apprehensive about not using my regular barber but i can safely say that I've now added Steve & Dukes to my list of trusted barbershops. Incredibly professional and skilled, I was in & out and a very happy camper. I recommend them without hesitation."
There are plenty of barbers closer to me, but it's more than worth it to make the trip here (roughly 30 min).
Mike, the owner, gave my son his first hair cut & has been cutting it ever since. There were only three times over the years that I took my son to a closer shop due to conflicting schedules but both my son and I prefer Mike's cuts to anyone else. My son is 16 now and only wants his hair cut by Mike.
The shop is nice, clean and well kept and the staff is all super friendly and make you feel comfortable.
"Good old fashion service.
This place is what every barbershop should be like. It’s right off Van Dyke, the people are nice, prices are affordable and you get the best service. I especially like the old razor blade and warm shaving cream. These days it’s hard to come by with a place that will actually give you a shave or trim your beard. I never go anyplace except here."
"I've never been a hair salon kind of guy, so when I found this classic barbershop I knew I found a winner. Great staff, friendly customer service and always a laugh. Very affordable and best of all, a great haircut every time!"
"Best barbershop around. Have been going to Mike for over 10 years. All stand up people and great haircuts."
"Always a great haircut at a good price."
"I discovered this gem of a barbershop after I got tired of continuous bad experiences at my previous barber. From my first haircut there, I was sold on the personal care and friendliness of the staff. Mike and his crew always take great care of me and I’ve referred many friends to his shop. Keep up the great work!"
"I brought my boys in here on Saturday to get a cut. I have tried several salons and barbershops for them but no one has really wow'd us. Not the case with Steve and Duke's they did an amazing job cutting their hair. They take their time and make sure ever hair is cut and laying the right way. Thank you for doing such an awesome job with them. Will definitely be sending the hubby in for his flat top. Another cut that is very difficult for stylist to do correctly that you guys had no problem doing."
"I went here for the first time today to get a shave and had a great experience. A barber shave is a dying art nowadays and these guys are doing it right. I will be back soon."
