Very good steak

I'd had a few badly done steaks around Hawaii so I was delighted when this place did a lovely steak for me. The salad bar was very good, and beers were reasonable at $4 each. Worth a visit for nice steak.

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed thier fresh, local beef burgers. The hubby had a mushroom burger and I had one with grilled onions and BBQ sauce. Cooked to perfection. I am not a french fry person but their seasoned fries were excellent! Enjoyable meal on the back patio. Good service. Clean restroom. Over all good experience.

We stopped here for lunch after seeing the restaurant the day before. Their front porch was full but they sat us in the back after a discussion with the server as to where we could sit. We were sat at the last table in the back. The hostess asked if she could bring us a some thing to drink before... More

We had lunch the first time and ordered the homemade burgers. Delicious. Local beef and B-B-Q on local wood that gave it a real nice last. The one thing I noticed right away was the lack of salt in the burger. That's a good thing. Too much of our food is salted. Service was a bit slow, but when your... More

Don't let the appearance of the restaurant fool you. Food was great - had lunch. Ordered the tin plate chicken dish and hubby ordered the kalua pig bowl. Very homemade. I would go back again. I can understand why some reviewers didn't rank it high. The menu is geared towards locals and not tourists. I'm a tourist but wanted what... More

We were staying in a vacation rental by owner, two minutes walk from the Wranglers. Great soups and salad bar, and friendly good service. We loved it. The gift shop is awesome!

My husband and I had quickly researched this restaurant when we were looking for a place to eat lunch. This restaurant had been recommended to us by a local as well. We arrived and were seated promptly. The waiter came and without a greeting asked if we had decided on what we wanted. Since we weren't very hungry, we wanted... More

We stopped here for dinner March 25. We parked in the back lot and came through the rear patio dining area into the hostess area. The restaurant was not crowded. We waited 6 minutes for the hostess to acknowledge us; we were the only people in the immediate area. Upon being acknowledged, I inquired if there was room on the... More

Wish we'd gone down the road to Paco's Tacos rather than wait nearly 30 minutes at 8 pm for average food. We could've been seated earlier, along with other people who were waiting, if they had bussed the empty tables sooner. Once seated, the waitress was very friendly & service was pretty quick. Our meals came with the soup &... More

We tried it for dinner. The service was beyond slow and disorganized. When we finally got our drinks and put in our orders, we went up to the depleted salad bar and came back to our table to find our nearly full Mai Tais gone. Yep dumped by some oblivious staff member. My steak was good but not local. My... More
