Took the family here this morning - it has been 10 years since I was last here and thought it was time to try them out again. Boots & Kimo's is mythic for the long line to get in. We got there about 7am for a 7:30 opening time and were about the 5th or 6th table seated. When we... More

Recommended by a friend, we phoned our order ahead to avoid the daily queues and picked up two portions of delicious pancakes which were eaten on the beach. Nice pancakes in a foam sauce with bananas and macadamias. Recommended.

My cousins and I went to this brunch spot before we had to leave to the airport. Service was great, food came quick. Huge servings. Must try the banana macadamia nut pancakes!! Still dreaming about them...can't wait to go back! Worth the drive from Honolulu

The banana pancakes are really good. The restaurant is really small and the wait for a table can take over an hour. If you're in a rush, don't go, but if you have the time it's worth the wait. Also the tables are really close together, so be prepared.

Do not miss this experience. A friend who had lived on the island gave us this great recommendation for the best macadamia nut pancakes on the island. They make a special sauce that will flat out melt your taste buds and put a permanent smile on your face for hours. The atmosphere is soooooo awesome with Pro Bowl Jersies all... More

Food is fantastic. Get there early and still be prepared to wait. Small area for seating open at 7:30 am and the line is long

The banana pancakes with macadamia nut sauce is good, but I'm not sure it's worth the hassle of getting there and then waiting for all of the tourists being dropped off by vans to file in and out. We were there at 7am btw. If you want, you can just find a recipe for whipped cream, make it, but don't... More

Really good madamia nut pancake, fried rice and portuguese sausage. This place is quite expensive but we just couldn't resist their macadamia nut pancake and we have to visit this place at least once while we're on vacation in Oahu.

This place is worth going to eat breakfast. Go early as the line is long if you are in a group. We were just a couple so were lucky and seated quickly. To die for food and really nice staff. Loved the football theme decor, even if there were no Steeler tables, and had to sit at a Raven's table!... More
