A place you have to try.

I was surprised by the interior, service and quality of the food. Walked past this place many times over the years and never stopped, kicking myself for not stepping in before. I visited twice during my stay in the islands and I have to say I miss the place. Upon entry I was greeted by smiling and... read more

Don't go out of your way to go here. Was convenient as we were staying at the hotel and $2 Main Tai's! Food is typically fast food, chips, burgers etc. Inexpensive and musician was good.

My husband and I are here while on vacation. The food was pretty good and the prices were much better than we saw at many other restaurants we visited. I was particularly impressed by the one waitress who was working when we were there. She had lots of tables but managed it well. We never felt neglected and she was... More

The reviews for this sounded good and the place looked from the outside that it had a good atmosphere. However, as we entered to eat around 6pm the place was hot and despite being only about a quarter full the service was slow. The staff were telling locals about drink specials and other specials but not very helpful to those... More

Thought this was a unique place but turned out to be a typical bar with food. Similar to other franchise type tourist bars. Food was ok but like everything in Waikiki, it is expensive.

Just back a block from the beach this was a terrific find. The food was surprisingly good, large fresh salad, pulled pork and seafood were our choices and we enjoyed every bite. Good entertainment by a really talented guy.

The restaurant doesn't look like much but the food and service was great. For what we paid, this restaurant was a great value, especially in Waikiki.

We had had a fantastic day. The kids were famished as were we. There was a guy out the front offering free Mai Tai vouchers, we should have known. We still went in. The menu sounded ok. We chose the kids wings for the girls, hubby requested the Big Kahuna Burger and I chose the Buffalo wings thinking they were... More
