This was a surprise. Saw an ad in a local news sheet and decided to try it. Bit of a bus trip. Very good assortment of food.Try the firecracker shrimp. Tables close enough to strike up conversation with the people next to you if you're the intrusive high sociability type.

My husband and I just finished eating. What a great meal! We had the crab cakes, and the S.O.S. I can not express how good it was in this small space. Server was top notch as well. Park across street in the city lot. Must try! Great service, large portions. Try the beinets for dessert.

Like the location as it's very central and easy to find off Kapahulu. This place can get packed with people but is a great place to hang out with friends grab a drink and some food listen to music and socialize. This place is a little pricey and food hit or miss but good to check out once.

A very cool location. The decoration is great and we tried different pupus. All of them were very tasty. As well the cocktails they make are great:) A good choice to go for food. You wont regret it.

After reading the other reviews of Uncle Bo's I was excited. However, the experience was pretty terrible. I am a huge fan of steamed fish, so I wanted to try theirs. I should have been suspicious that the prices aren't advertised on line. When I arrived, I was shocked to find they charged $30 for an 8 oz piece. That's... More

Tacky, both outside and out and not a great neighborhood, but parking right across the street. Great food - don't miss the dynamite shrimp appetizer. We both had opah - one spicy and one with a mushroom sauce. Good wine and beer.

I've been an Uncle Bo's fan for a few years now. I took my family this time. 3 of us had a good meal, and they were very good about dealing with a food allergy. One of us however, had a very unsatisfying experience, with a stale tasting salad, and underwhelming food generally.
