“Mai Tai's worth the trip!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

The Mai Tai's here are Something worth traveling for from Honolulu.....the North Shore and the Polynesian Cultural center are sites to be enjoyed along the way!!! There is some great Seafood awaiting your palate....and those island drinks are there just waiting for you!!! Better known amongst the locals.....worth a stop whenever you find yourself in the area!!!

“beautiful place to stop for dinner or lunch Beautiful setting by ocean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

when heading to or from the north shore via windward side
friendly service
I love the outdoor dining can enjoy the beautiful ocean breeze and vews peaceful and makes you feel and realize you are in God's country
insidee is a nice area at night with the fireplace (sometimes too hot)
wish they would bring back the "?Slavonic steak my Dad;s favourite
but the coconut shrimp is good and never have had a bad expericince at the Crouching Lion

“Million dollar view, terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Stopped for lunch. Poor menu selection. Menu way over priced and food was awful. Kids didn't even touch theirs. Sams Club food at Ritz prices. I would ggo back for a few beers but that is about it.

This was our third visit to the Crouching Lion and it is still a favorite stop. The service was excellent and our lunch was very good.

“Unique Fish Stew”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

The view is unbeatable! The fish stew was really good and I really like the pineapple slaw. I was very pleased with my meal and service here. I think it's worth it!
