Went back several times during my vacation. Food is fresh and delicious. Picnic tables inside for seating, it's a place where locals go, so you know it's good.

Had to come here after reading the reviews. The atmosphere is that there isn't one. Picnic benches and super casual- you order your food from the counter and take it to go or eat there. We had spicy ahi poke, some other ahi poke but with diff seasonings. We also had two salmon dishes. All was tasty and a local... More

I have to admit my husband and I are big fans of DDD and when I saw this place on the Food Network I added it to my list of places I had to try during our one week trip to Hawaii. The look of the restaurant is basic, kind of like a seafood Deli counter with picnic tables set... More

I'm here about twice a month and was never disappointed with the food there. They have very fresh poke with a lot of Aloha added in. One evening I went in just before closing and wanted the firecracker poke but they sold out. The guy behind the counter said no problem I'll make you some. This is the kind of... More

Came by after I got really sea sick and wanted something light to eat. They had many different flavours of poke which were tasty and fresh. Didn't realize they were on DDD until we got there. Didn't disappoint!

Incredible! I had seen this restaurant on Diners, Drive-Inns, and Dives. It does not disappoint! I had never had Poke before and wanted to try it. The lady behind the counter was excellent. I wish I remembered her name. I must have tried ten Poke's before I ordered. I got the brown rice, Ahi, Smoked Octopus, and two other Spicy... More

This place gets big hype but I really didnt enjoy the food. I love the DDD show but this place just didnt live up to it. The food was ok but I probably wouldnt go back. Sorry

Nothing fancy, order at the counter and be sure to ask for samples so you can try different types of Poke. They were all fresh and delicious, would definitely go back!

Great true local fare. Real locals come here. I and the people with me were the only out of towners. Very simple and small. Picnic tables and plastic silverware, but large selection

Ok - I am a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives fanatic. I've scheduled vacations around Guy's reviews. When we finalized our schedule to Oahu, I made only one demand. Fresh Catch. After several days of very expensive meals, everyone was up for a reasonably priced experience. When we drove up to the establishment, everyone looked at me like I had lost... More
