Even the leftovers are good

Went with my boyfriend on a Saturday night at about 6:30pm. We didn't have a reservation so we had to wait for about 20 minutes for a table. We got the Boco Rota cheese bread appetizer, a Caesar salad and the pesto chicken. They asked if we wanted the food to come out when it was ready. My... read more

We went to Uncle Bo's based on the recommendation of our bartender and weren't disappointed. Bo's is a funky restaurant/bar with lots of atmosphere and great food. My partner had the garlic rib-eye steak and was very pleased with her meal. I had the SOS seafood soup/stew and it was sensational. Rich and creamy with the right balance of spices... More

I came here based on TA and other reviews expecting to be "wowed" and the meal was just not that good. I ordered the Dynamite Shrimp (again based on reviews) and it was lame. It was like fried shimp tossed in mayo and I have no idea where the "spicy" part came in because I hardly detected anything spicy at... More

We had the Hamachi Sashimi, Dynamite Shrimp, Boca Rota pizza. So good we took more family back with us the next evening. Suggest making reservations. The place fills up quickly. We will definitely be back next time we visit.

Don't wait until your last night like we did. You will want to go back. The food is better than anything you will find in Waikiki for the same price. Know it is not beachfront but if you are craving really good food and service this little whole in wall is worth it. If you like shrimp , order the... More

My buddy said we were going to pick up food to go from here, and I'd never been, but had driven by many times. It doesn't look like much from the outside but once you're in, the place is great! Very modern and spacious! Tables look cozy, and they have a nice bar set up. Friendly greeting when I walked... More

Definitely plan on pupu's to share and dinner a separate night!! You can't miss the Roca Bita, prime rib with garlic cheese bread, heavenly! The steaks were cooked just right, tiger tai salad was delicious and their pizza was great! Definitely recommend this place as I know I will be coming back here!
