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

This restaurant is small but what great pork sandwiches they have. They have a few tables on the inside and about 3 tables to sit down at outside. They accept cash only (just an FYI)

Want a light yet filling lunch between surfing and snorkeling? Grass Skirt Grill serves up some hearty fish burgers! It's been over half a year since I had my last one, and I still remember it fondly. ;)

This place is small, but has a lot of charm. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. I had the grilled Ono plate minus the butter sauce (trying to save a few calories). They grilled the fish with just lemon and spices and it was fantastic. The salad and rice were perfectly paired with the dish. I added some avocado... More

A small rustic joint run by a hospitable and friendly owner with stories to share while you wait. I had the delicious Ahi burger, which I enjoyed on the beach. Great value for money. I highly recommend the Grass Skirt Grill.

Small space with nice outside seating. Our food was amazingly delicious! The shrimp scampi was terrific (the best meal I had during our whole time on the island). My husband had a fish sandwich and the size of the fillet was enormous!

Love the Ahi burger and he garlic fries the best. The shrimp is also delicious. We visit Relatives in Hawaii every couple of years and always look forward to a couple of meals at the Grass Skirt Grill. Wish we had a place like this at home! There is limited seating but we never have to wait. The staff is... More

We ate lunch here & it really was my favorite meal. I had the Ono fish plate that is topped with the light & creamy lemon basil sauce. So good! You also get rice & salad with it & both were delicious. Husband had a burger & fries & liked that too. My son only wanted rice, which he was... More
