This is more of a bar than a typical restaurant but ok for a casual meal. It's at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach hotel but the grill is on the street side. There is entertainment nightly and at times there are hula dancers. Food was ok and prices were reasonable.

We were staying at the Outrigger Reef, so had lunch here a couple of times. The service was good, friendly staff. The menu is pretty good for lunch, lots of salads, sandwiches and burgers. Nice setting by the pool, with lots of shade. We had cocktails one night before heading out and enjoyed the local musicians, great atmosphere.

We had several meals here during our stay at the Reef. Every server seemed to remember my prior order to see if I wanted that again. It was very refreshing at such a busy place. The rib eye steak was so good, I had it three times during my six night stay. We only got to experience the nightly entertainment... More

We had breakfast and dinner here once each. Both were pretty good. I especially liked their $7 breakfast specials. The service isn't great as we had to wait awhile before anyone even came to our table, but nothing huge. It's a nice area tucked back by the pool. Also, be sure to check your coupon book upon arrival. There's a... More

At the Outrigger this was THE place to drink and chil at the hotel. If you sit at the bar for 5 minutes, will make new friends from any stranger there. Meals tidy, Mai Tai's had enough kick......but not as much amy wife's when I ordered my fifth one! Live bands were good - nice place to stop thinkin' and... More

This is a lovely restaurant with great service. The food is really good! We really enjoyed the ahi tuna and the Pulled Pork Sliders... so yummy! Plus they have really lovely entertainment in the evening. It's so nice to sit and enjoy your food and drink with the great Hawaiian entertainment going on. A true Hawaiian experience!

Food was just OK, many places have better. Service was slower than typical Hawaiian time service. Entertainment was to start at 6pm. Took them an extra 1/2 hour to tune up their instruments. Alright Hawaiian music, get it at all locations. Would recommend this as a secondary choice but you should look for something a step up for the price... More

This restaurant is especially lovely at night . Everything I've ever ordered has been wonderful. I've had yummy breakfasts, lunches, dinners & sometimes just special guava daiquiris listening to blissful Hawaiian music. I've visited with friends & visited alone & always felt comfortable. Varied menu with great selections of pupus, sandwiches & complete dinners. The fish offered are tasty &... More
