Quite a menu and quite a treat!

From the outside Uncle Bo's looks like a hole in the wall that could use a bit of work; walk too fast by it during daytime and you may miss it entirely. In the evening it's another story as the small crowd of people waiting outside for a table will tell you that you have indeed found the spot... read more

Unassuming exterior, very modern and attractive interior. This small place holds about a hundred but has a large and hugely diverse menu. We ordered four items from the Pupu menu, and they ranged from good (Dynamite Shrimp, which had depth but not breadth) to the decadently delicious Hot Hapa Potato Roll and the Boca Rota. The waitstaff were uniformly courteous... More

I loved this little bar/restaurant. We were recommended that we visit here by a local and so glad we did. We arrived about 7.30 and it was very busy but we happily waited at the bar and something came up pretty quickly. We had the dynamite shrimp which was beautiful and very large for the Pupu's menu. We also had... More

Park across the street. It was busy but we were seated quickly. Shrimp pasta and fish tacos were fantastic.

If your into Seafood, you have to go to Uncle Bo's. Hands down the best quality and array of options for island seafood meals. They make really good cocktails as well!

We visited this place on our last day in Honolulu. It was packed and I was glad we had made reservations. The food was very good - the best dish was the seafood soup served as an appetizer (sorry, can't remember the name). The other dishes were fine (except for the steak that was a bit dry and plain). Service... More

We went there will without a reservation and jet lagged. It was very crowded,but energetic. The bartender was great. We eventually were able to sit at the bar before our "45 minute" wait time. The food was really good,but most of the family didn't enjoy the experience due to being tired and the extremely one wait. I would recommend reservations... More

Our family of five spent two days on Oahu before doing a week in Maui, and wanted to go someplace that wasn't a mainland chain restaurant on Waikiki. A friend from home recommended this place, and after looking at the menu on line, we decided to give it a try. Uncle Bo's is located a few minutes away from the... More

Uncle Bo's was recommended to us by friends. It was a short cab ride out of the madness of Waikiki. The food was really good. The service was outstanding. We travelled with a 2 and 6 year old. The staff were wonderful in making sure the kids were happy, making it easier for us to have dinner and a few... More
