Airport to Pier 38 is a must

Whenever we go to HI we always stop at Pier 38 for fresh fish. Nico's is a favorite but this time we decided to try Uncle's. It was a great decision. When the hostess asked if we had been there before we told her that we usually ate across the parking lot. Her response was a sincere "I'm sorry... read more

I had a seared ahi salad for lunch. It was not inexpensive so I expected more for the price in terms of quality of the ahi, it didn't have a real sear on the surface and was ice cold. The portion of fish may have weighed 2 ounces, the bed of lettuce was fresh but small and I paid $21.... More

Our family of 6 stopped in here to eat on our way in from the airport before we got to our hotel. We got there at 4pm and had no wait since it was so early. For us it was already dinner time since we were still on Pacific time. So that worked in our favor. We were debating between... More

Look for Pier 38, and turn in to Fisherman's Village. There are a few businesses along this pier, and Uncle's is one of them. This was a return trip to this restaurant for me, as I had been there several months ago as well. I ordered the Miso Butterfish. It is really delicious... not over whelming amount of miso... it...

Took my boss to Uncles for Seafood at Pier 38 on Friday. Got their early because this place gets packed quick. He had the Snapper and Chips (Special) and I had the blackened Mahi Mahi Sandwhich. The Mahi Mahi was perfect and tender and his fish was fresh and crisp. You cannot go wrong when the back of the grille... More

AZ boy in Hawaii so had to have some seafood. Friend had seen the wharf area restaurants and we decided to try Uncle's. Great market feel when you walk in, friendly staff. My first Poke Tower - beautiful presentation and just delicious. I ordered the "Mixed Grill" of "Large Prawns, Giant sea Scallops and fish fillet", what I got was... More

The food was fresh and cooked excellently. No doubt about it. I enjoyed my red snapper very much and my husband's ahi was superb. It was definitely expensive, though. Unfortunately, it was apparent our server just did not give a crap. Her rude attitude was off-putting. Service was just not good. My water didn't even get refilled. I'll go to... More

We were told to try Nico's or Uncles. We went to Nico's for an app and wasn't that impressed. Went over to Uncle's for another app (this is our usual dinner) and tried the Ahi Poke app. We went back once again just for the Poke - it's that good. The ambiance isn't as upscale as Nico's, but the service... More

My girlfriend took me for a b-day lunch. When you enter, the interior is quite impressing with high ceiling and old photos of fishing seneries thoughout the restuarant. Despite the fact that the restaurant was almost empty, the waitress lead us to the very corner seat and right behind was a door where staff coming in and out. On top... More
