The food here was excellent. I had an ahi burger (ahi tuna on a bun, not ground burger) and my wife had a pork sandwich. Both were excellent. The ahi was melt in your mouth good and the pork had a wonderful flavor. It's a small place - no fancy "ambiance" but the food was great.

Super fresh and amazing flavors. I had the coconut shrimp and it was bursting with flavor before I even got it into my mouth. Will return every time I make it back. My husband had the pulled pork and he thought it was just so so like some others have said in earlier reviews.

Great burgers and fries in this small restaurant in Haleiwa. Some seating inside and some out. Great place to watch the world go by in sleepy Haleiwa. On the main stretch and the food is tasty and fresh. Well worth the visit.

Good sandwich, brown rice and iced tea, inexpensive, but not memorable. We were staying in Hale’iwa and preferred the food at the Bakery and Kono.

While walking the street in Haleiwa, the aroma coming from this place drew us in. Counter service was quick and we had our food in perhaps a quick 10 minutes. It was melt in your mouth good. I had a Mahi burger and my wife had the turkey burger. Will look for it again next trip to HI.

I was so excited to try this local favorite, hole-in-the wall joint. I wanted to love it! Maybe I went in with my expectations too high. The ambiance was really cool- we ate outside and loved people watching. The prices were good and the portions were huge! But the food was only just ok. My husband got the pulled pork... More

A really nice change from the more commercialized establishments on Oahu. Good food and a great place to eat and watch "Hawaii". Small and personal. Make it a must stop when you get to the North Shore.

I lived on Oahu for a while and I made it a point to come to the Grass Skirt Grill a few times every week. It was a weekend staple of mine and I usually came out once or twice on weekdays as well. Johnny is awesome. He's pretty much always there and is more than happy to talk story... More
