Okay, the locals love it but the locals love anything that is priced well and gives you lots of food. This place gives you an all you can eat salad bar and bread to load up on and a decent sized slab of prime rib at decent prices, BUT it is just so average in quality and taste. You will... More

BACKSTORY: Hubby (age 67) and I (age 62) ate here once during our stay at the adjacent Castle Mokihana. We decided to give it a try because, apparently, it is popular with the locals and seemed busy enough. Their specialty is beef. We read comments about the great salad bar. Hubby chose a prime rib ($29); good size but more... More

Had prime rib it was very good. Salad bar was nice. I did not like that I had to pay $3 for a potatoe instead of rice.

It was stupendous! My husband and son both had it and it was the best. I had the seared ahi which was also great. Service was also impeccable. Michele did a great job. Lots of leftovers and the salad bar was also included. We had a window table (recommend getting there by 5 for dinner seating for the views). We... More

The food was delicious. The salad bar was pretty bad. The place is extremely dated, like from the 70's but the prices were okay, and the coconut cream pie was excellent.

Excellent fresh catch, wonderful views! Would be hard to beat it if you want fresh fish! Great service with excellent Hawaiian martini!

I selected the rib eye steak, which was well prepared but fatty far beyond my preference (and I tend to like my steaks very "marbled", so to speak. The 9 ounce steak was probably 1/3 untrimmed fat.

The salad bar is as plain as they come, don't expect any frills there. The food is good, but a bit over priced. If you're expecting to be wow'd by fabulous and delicious dining experience with a great atmosphere. Don't. If you want a 'basic' food experience, then this is the place.

Bull Shed was recommended to us by a local. From the moment we entered we felt like we were in another era (but in a good way). It primarily is a prime rib/steak/salad bar place. The salad bar was basic and the food was not 'artistically' presented. Having said that, we enjoyed our dinner tremendously! My prime rib was excellent.... More
