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

Went here on a whim, and wow!!! What an amazing restaurant. Was a little skeptical because of the name, but best food on the island by far! Amazing atmosphere and great service made this a highlight of the trip.

If you want top level eats at reasonable prices, Uncle Bo's is the place. Friendly but not overly flashy digs but everyone (lots of locals) comes here for the food. Excellent portions and quality.

Stuck in the Hilton Hawaiian Village it can be a struggle to get to someplace with local food at a decent price that's nearby. Uncle Bo's was the answer. The SOS with rice was fabulous. We love a good Shrimp Creole and this was very much like that but with a more complex blend of flavors. Six Little Piggies appetizer... More

We took a taxi out to the restaurant from our waikiki hotel for about $12. Absolutely worth going out to more of a locals restaurant. The food was amazing, and the service was prompt. At the end of our meal, Uncle Bo was our and about checking on the front of the house and bussing tables himself. Great establishment!
