Near Kuhio and Seaside. Complete with plastic palm trees. Food was good. Entertainment excellent. Local one man music but quality playing. Relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff. A nice bar with good eats and convenient location.

Post beach dinner, starting with the garlic cheese fries (crispy) which were superb and can't recommend enough. The signature Loco Moco-Kalua Pork was filling, but not much more than pork, rice and gravy - it could use a bit more seasoning.

dark and dingy with the worse food we have eaten in Hawaii. Food served in cheap horrble wooden bowls. Food looked and tasted like it was out of a packet.

This place is great, especially if you're going in for drinks after the beach. We went a few times while visiting Waikiki and the food is good, but the drinks are better. Obviously, you need to try the fish bowl - it's fantastic! The overall atmosphere of this bar screams Hawaii. I'd love to go back!

I love, love, love the pork loco-moco at this place...my daughter gets the pork nachos and my grandson prefers the burgers. Beer is cold, service is friendly.

We stopped in because we were just walking by and decided to try it. Great choice !! The wings are awesome and the burgers are really good as well. Service is fast and friendly. Get one basket of fries unless you are starving because there are lots of them. Will eat here again and again. Great little place!!

We were looking for a place to have a bite to eat and a beer and made a spur of the moment decision to try this place, and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was sports-bar done casual Hawaiin style. The service was good, no problems getting drinks or food. Food very tasty and beer cold. Would recommend
