Yum, Yum, Yum!! Grilled Fish Plate!!

My husband had the Ono plate and I had Ahi plate. Choice of brown or white rice. I like brown so I was pleased it was offered. The salad on the plate was full of fresh greens and had a very good dressing. It was a perfect amount of dressing, not drowning in it. Ripe tomato slices on top that... read more

Long time vacationers on the North Shore. We have eaten lots of places and this is one worth a return visit. Food was very good and a fair selection. Everything was fresh and fixed to order. The ahi was scrumptious and the raspberry tea a pleasant surprise. Great lunch spot.

If you're looking for a fast and relatively inexpensive bite to eat, Grass Skirt Grill is a great stop in the town of Haleiwa. Though not much in the way of seating and ambiance (there are only about 4 tables outside near a parking lot), the food is great and the service is pretty quick. If you're a fish lover,... More

Another well traveled roadside eatery you come to love in Haleiwa. However, the food is excellent. Ahi with brown rice, cooked to order, with salad and pineapple. Odd tasting Fanta drink was like watered down fruit punch.

Despite having vacationed on the North Shore for the past six years we had never stopped at the Grass Skirt Grill. We decided to give it a go for lunch during a quick stop in Haleiwa. What a pleasant surprise. We had the pulled pork sandwich which was absolutely fabulous, and the Teriyaki Cheese Fries, which was also surprisingly awesome.... More

My husband ordered coconut shrimp here and said it was one of the best meals he ate in our 8 day trip. Plenty of shrimp, big scoops of rice make for a really tasty and satisfying meal at a very low price. I am vegetarian and ate a great veggie burger and teriyaki cheese fries. So good!

From the highway this cafe is very small and easy to miss, but once we found the place, it was very good. The fish was grilled but not overcooked and the veggies were very fresh.

My husband and I ate at the Grass Skirt Grill twice during our week on Oahu. We were so impressed with the prices and quality. I had the fish sandwich and pork plate and both were the best meals I had on Oahu.
