“Beach Eats...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The Steak shack is right on the beach and a cheap lunch with such a view has to be good! Thankfully my decision to eat here after reading reviews was not a bad one at all. For less than $10 I had a steak, rice and salad plate with a drink. The steak was tender and tasty and although the salad did have quite a bit of dressing on it, this complimented the rice nicely.

A great quick eat on the beach - definitely worth a visit.

“Great meat and excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Believe all the positive reviews you read about this place. The meat was tender and tasty and we sat at the beach and demolished it after our swim. Value form obey is excellent and you cannot beat the quality and taste of the meal.

“So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Not sure why so many people rave about this place. Yes it is reasonably cheap but a little tasteless & bland. I had the steak & it was quiet tough. The salad was steeped in dressing & consisted of lettuce & a very small amount of red cabbage. To me that's not really a salad. Maybe I went on a bad day, but would I recommend it...probably not.

“great find for cheap good eats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The steak shack is a little walk-up located right next to the Outrigger Reef Hotel on Waikiki Beach. You can get either steak or chicken with salad and rice for $7. We had the steak and it was nicely seasoned, tender, thin slices. We would have eaten here more but they close at 6 p.m. and we only made it back once from our sightseeing around the island in time to catch them open. I would highly recommend it for a tasty satisfying meal for cheap. That's hard to find on Waikiki so it was a great find and great food!

“Still a good feed for a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Suffering from jet lag after our early morning arrival, staying at Waikiki Shore & feeling hungry , but not a going out sit down dinner, so popped downstairs here for steak,salad/dressing & rice....I had chicken. Still as good as last year...tender & tasty...no fatty/gristly bits.
$14 for the 2 of us. Good, hardworking people.
