Awesome steak house

Based on reviews we wanted to try Hy's out. We went with a friend of ours and had an excellent experience. The waiter helped select a great bottle of wine for the table, there were about 4 different wait staff tending to our every need and although they were always there, we didn't feel they were... read more

We ate at Hy's towards the end of our Hawaiian vacation. All four of us agree that it was the best steak dinner we've ever had. Our night started out with delicious cocktails in the bar. They were small, but powerful! And then it was on to our table where we demolished a serving of garlic cheesebread and immediately ordered... More

Waikiki has steakhouses a plenty...but Hys has longevity on its side- it's been around and keeps its loyal clientele. It's back street location means that you have to know it is there..but it offers classic steakhouse fare in a smart, clubby setting...but with touches of theatricality - the open grill behind glass is a showstopper! Expect excellent salads, sublime steaks... More

Dined here for our last night in Honolulu. Place is impressive but a bit relaxed. Husband had lamb which was good. I had Alaskan crab legs. Our friends in ordered steak and lobsters. Overall a good dining experience. Could've rated it higher if not for the slow service. Our meals came an hour later. If you want to try Hy's,... More

We have been planning a visit to Hy's for months & we're so excited for the full experience. Seated upon arrival we were surprised that the interior was in it's original state, reminded me of a boardroom from the 60's. Our waiter was wonderful, gave us a full run down of the menu & was very knowledgeable. We decided to... More

the redwood panelled library decor is an eye opener. The chef BBQing steaks at the edge of the room is mouth watering. Food quality and presentation excellent. The maître d runs a tight ship and sitting at the bar I could see and hear him 'cracking the whip'!

Every time i am in Hawaii I make sure I visit Hy's at least once. I don't even know how to describe the steak; thats how good it is. Literally the best steak I have EVER had. The appetisers are delicious too, especially the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail. The style of the restaurant is also very cool, almost like a vintage... More

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
