“Terry is the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We always head over after Sunday mass to sit outside and enjoy the day. Terry is the best for service. We enjoy all the specials and the pancake plate is huge, even a half serving is plenty to eat. They have a nice little 4 or 5 seater bar area outside with a TV, fun for watching a game.

“Definitely lives up to the name”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

This is a big diner with a big menu! You'll find it in several locations throughout O'ahu and nothing is super special about this place per se. However, the big menu and wide selection make this an ideal family spot, especially for picky eaters and people wanting to try a wide variety of local fare in one place.

“A good fun family place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

I love this restaurant especially because the people are so kind and friendly, go in twice and they already know you by name. Good burgers and pastas. Live music on Friday nights and spacious patio seating. Definitely a local favorite

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We had several meals at the Big City Diner, they continue to impress. Could the location be better, sure. But the food the service and friendly atmosphere keep me coming back.

“Best burgers in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

We absolutely love Big City Diner! The service is always awesome and the food is delicious! Oh favorite meal there is the classic burgers on the potato buns...so good. I also love their salads with the local Halo greens...so fresh! It is always so relaxing to so outside with the beautiful, Hawaiian breeze. A must go to in the beautiful town of Kailua. They also have a great kids menu and delicious breakfast. You cannot beat the prices either.
