Great chicken lunch with the locals

This place is a trip, it's in a bowling alley but don't let that fool you. The food is out of this world, and unlike anything on the mainland. The deserts especially the carrot cake are to die for. Do yourself a favor and never mind the lines or wait at lunch - go there and try it!

I always have a great meal at The Alley. Good service and outstanding food in Aiea. I always bring in friends visiting from the main land and they love the food as well.

Very popular and busy at lunch. Most people were there for the tasty chicken. When I complained to my waitress (Patricia) that my chicken was all fat and breading she quickly brought me another whole serving of chicken. Wow. That's service. Short wait for a table. Not much atmosphere.

I eat here a couple of times per month. I love the furikake ahi, tasty chicken, and pulehu steak. But the best thing, especially when it gets cold in the winter (well, relatively cold) is the oxtail soup. I always ask for extra ponzu sauce for the oxtails. Yummy. They don't always have it, but if they do, you have... More

The food at this bowling alley restaurant is a gourmet take on local fare, and they have awesome deserts. The service at lunch is fast. Ive been here a few times with colleagues. My favorites are their version of a traditional plate lunch. The tasty chicken is sweet rich and savory. It goes great with mac salad! There is also... More

Although it may seem odd to pick up cakes and pies from a bowling alley, the desserts there are extremely delicious. Many (perhaps most?) people go to Aiea Bowling alley for the food rather than the bowling!

We stopped here after visiting the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet as it is literally around the corner from there. We heard about it through Food Network and my tween wanted to try loco moco before leaving Oahu. We had a short 10 minute wait at noon and the hostess and waitress were lovely. Our family of four (kids age 10... More

My husband and I re-visited this place this past Saturday for dinner. Parking was full on the top deck, so we had to park down one level below. There is a dine in and a take out window option. We only waited 15 minutes after signing in, which is unusually short so we were quite delighted. Our hostess was very... More

This is a favorite place for me to go for some good comfort food. If you are on the island of O'ahu, you must dine here. One of the best local food you'll have on the island. Friendly wait staff, very accommodating for sure. My favorites here are the ox tail soup, salmon, tasty chicken and lemon crisp. Oh yeah!
