Good Food

This place stays busy and for good reason. Good food, and apparently great drinks, because the bar was hopping. As busy as they are, the staff are on it!!! Services great here along with the food.

This place needs a major cleaning and refreshing overhaul!!! Food was typical American fare, Nothing special. Almost got up and left before we ordered. Wish we had and gone to TiliLiki behind them.

We came here for lunch on our way up from Kapaa. My father ordered the meatloaf special. He thought it was excellent. My husband and I ordered the caesar salad with chicken, another excellent dish. My mother ordered the steak sandwich, very tasty. My kids had hamburgers which they thought were very good. overall, the service was excellent, the food... More

We start and end our timeshare week each year with Mai Tai's and dinner at CJ's. We sit on the back lanai and often are able to listen to live music while we eat. On weekends it's a good idea to mske a reservation. The dinners include quite a complete salad bar and warm rolls. I love the baby back... More

We should have listened to the Trip Advisor reviews of this restaurant but we were hopeful about the salad bar. I'll keep it brief. This place is way over priced, dirty and has horrible service. They charge $17 for their salad bar that only has lettuce, shredded carrots, beets and cottage cheese. Unbelievable. Food wasn't good but the prices that... More

While out exploring, we stopped for Lunch. Large portions and reasonable prices. The restaurant was not very crowded for a late lunch. We were advised that Dinner was more expensive, and service was slower.

Our main problem was the quality of our proteins. I ordered the Ono Salad (grilled). I'm not sure the grill marks were caused by a grill. The fish, which is a light, flakey fish was difficult to cut because it was so overcooked. My husband's prime rib sandwich feature tough, grey meat with loads of fat. I have had so... More

Very 70's-styled island place with lovely, friendly who people run it. We had a beautiful server break into hula for us as one of owners played guitar and sang. The food is your basic steak, seafood and salad bar, much like the old Chart House in the day.

We were served right away and had good food with great atmosphere. There wasn't much to dislike as when we went it wasn't busy.

Family friendly place, good customer service - we had went for crab legs which were delicious! There wasn't anything particularly outstanding about the food - but it wasn't bad... Although $17 Salad bar is a bit steep (and for lack of variety of a salad bar - ie. no cheese) ... the crab legs were yummy!
