While they have delicious food with an authentic Hawaiian experience, really the reason you'll make at least one return visit is the pies. Key lime cream pie, and the roasted macadamia nut cream pie - I mean, wow. And also coconut cream. Okay three trips. Confessions.

In the past this was a decent restaurant with fresh fish. I ordered mahi-mahi which turned out to be frozen, probably Costco.. for the price I expect fresh fish. At one point they had fresh fish so hopefully they get it again.. this area is too close to the ocean to be serving frozen fish.

Stopped by and had a pork loco moco for breakfast (the half order). The food was great, the staff was friendly. There were three of us and we shared a lemon bar for dessert and it was also very good.

We stopped here after a hike to the green sands. Casual atmosphere, great tastes, and colorful presentation. The pulled pork is likely the best I have ever had.

We had such a great lunch here. They were super busy but still made you feel at home. Our Family had all different things to eat from fish and chips to spaghetti. It was all good. You mush save room for their wonderful desserts!! Try the Coconut pie it was so good... I didn't share any with my husband.

We had a food there twice as we are very satisfied with the food and atmosphere. They serve a great breakfast and the owner is very friendly and helpful. She told us we could come 30 minutes before opening times to have our breakfast earlier because we were in a hurry. Deserts were fabulous.
