Still the best Steak House in Hawaii

Our favorite steak house for thirty years. Despite new owners, the food and service is still first class. Caesar salad, steak and chocolate lovers flambe is the perfect combination.

We treated ourselves to the new happy hour in the bar area and stayed for the usual satisfying steaks. For happy hour we especially enjoyed the mini Beef Wellington. The caesar salad is classically served and worth the price at least once a year.

Been to most of the Hy's in BC. Always liked them, Vancouver more than Whistler. This one in Waikiki is the very best. From the Ceasar salad to the great prime steak, perfect. The staff was extremely determined to make our experience a good one. Most important, the meat is prime from Kansas, and the man doing the cooking knows... More

This is a very traditional steak house with everything you would expect. Dark interior, great selection of steaks and cuts, very good seafood and plenty of sides to pick from. The ambiance was nice with a bit of an island feel as it is not a formal dress kind of place. The service was impeccable but you do pay for... More

I got there early and was promptly seated. The staff was very friendly. We got the menus and then waited. I had to finally ask someone if we could order drinks. DUH! The complimentary cheesebread was okay, however I noticed on the menu that any request for more bread would NOT be complimentary. Come on, white bread with melted cheese?... More

We went here to celebrate my mom's birthday. Niell and Jonah were our waiters. They were happy and nice and, just overall really good. My dad really likes tableside service things so, between the 5 of us over the course of the meal, we ordered a casear salad, hot spinach salad, cherries jubilee, and strawberry flambe. It was really fun... More

I have been to HY's twice-although some years ago. My wife and I LOVED the bread appetizer. We have tried to make it :) We liked the food,we liked the atmosphere, and one time we sat near the in-house entertainment. Whenever we hear "I'll follow the sun" it reminds us of HY's.

I usually have the prime rib which is excellent. This time I had the roast duck and that was also very good. The atmosphere and the service is always relaxing and courteous. A must if you want to experience dining with a touch of somethng extra.

Had great service from Colin. Entrees were nice but the steaks for which they are renowned for were a little bit average. Would give it a second chance as some of the dishes were great.
