We were unable to get a reservation (they were full) but we took the chance and went down there anyways. So glad we did! They were actually able to seat us quickly (had a cancellation). A bit noisy, but they ambience is very trendy. Had a great waitstaff that was knowledgable and gave wonderful recommendations. Highly recommend the Kalua Pork... More

Had dinner in the bar. Service was a little sketchy at first, but got better! Tried a new dish, the shaken chicken. Moist and flavorful, but thought there would be more veggies-- Drinks are good--servings nice size, good prices.

I am a foodie and very critical of food, esp. for the value that you pay for so I was pleasantly surprised with this locals place in Honolulu. In a city saturated with overpriced and overhyped mediocre celebrity chef tagged restaurants in gaudy tiki torched Waikiki hotels, this small intimate restaurant away from the tourist traps is a gem and...

Totally enjoyed the experience. Food was over the top and the service was so helpful and inviting . Especially enjoyed the Dynamite Shrimp and the Thai clams. Honestly enjoyed everything we ordered . Little out of the way. Totally worth the adventure.

Uncle Bo's was recommended to us by the staff at the hotel is a local pupu place. From the moment we walked in the smells are fantastic and it did not disappoint. Bottles of wine are very reasonably priced for restaurant, we started off with a mash potato, spice shrimp and a beef/cheese bread appetizers. We ended up reordering more... More

I tried the Six Little Piggies and the spicy tuna wraps. My husband got the SOS. Both were excellent. Tried 2 specialty drinks and both were great as well. I have brought visitors here and they have always been delighted with the food.

We dine at Uncle Bo's every time we visit Hawaii & for a good reason...really great food. The bad news is the price of wine. I better understand why Americans rarely drink wine with dinner. It's a pity & the only negative but if wine was more realistically priced, we'd eat there nightly...well almost. So enjoy the food but avoid... More

Make sure you visit Uncle Bo's when you are in Waikiki - a little bit out of the way but this place has a great atmosphere and fantastic food. Really humming on the night we went. Share plates were a great way to sample the menu. Highly recommend it.

I was told to try this restaurant by one of the flight attendants on my flight. I was able to get a seat for two without an reservation. It is recommended to call ahead as the place is busy. This restaurant is up the street from the zoo about 6 blocks. The food was very good and I enjoyed a... More
