My title says it all. This is an amazing steakhouse. They have good seafood dishes too, but they are a steakhouse first. They have a good steak selection, and the steak is prepared perfectly to order. My wife and I really enjoyed our meal here. They only serve dinner, and all tables have a view of the ocean. Many line... More

Right in the middle of town, recommended by locals, not the cheapest but reasonable. We had a window table. My wife & I had 2 different fish dinners while the grandkid found some kind of kid food, all good. Fast service.

The best steak and prime rib. No frills restaurant. Entree, rice, and salad bar. Right on the water.

This is where the locals eat. A local recommend it to us. The food was really good, not a big selection but what they had was good. Not expensive for Hawai'i.

Amazing place. Right ON the Pacific Ocean, windows wide open with a beautiful vista! Wait staff was excellent and friendly. Drinks were amazing! You must order the Bull Shed Mai Tail! My wife had the local Opal fish with cilantro and lime topping! Unbelievable. I had the black trigger shrimp. Again, done just right. Large salad bar and great Hawaiian... More

You may need to wait for a while before seated but very good food and service. Make sure you're hungry as portions very large.

We arrived at the time they opened and were told that they were not seating for a half hour and we could wait in the lounge. What? I guess this was a way to get you to buy a drink. The dinner that we saw on their webpage wasn't even available had to get something more expensive to be comparable.... More

They only take reservations for parties of six or more. When I called the staff wasn't particularly friendly but indicated Sunday nights were busy but the wait shouldn't be long for a two top. I had the grilled shrimp which was good and my son had the fresh catch..a local fish with a cilantro lime sauce that was also good.... More

What fun it was to eat here right by the ocean with the waves crashing up. The food was delicious and reasonable. Glad we are here. They only take recommendations for parties of 6 or more. We were 4, so we waited about 15 minutes as we wanted to sit by the window.

This restaurant is within walking distance of Waipouli Beach Resort, where we stayed on our trip. We liked it so much, we went back for dessert another night. It's right on the beach, and had great live music the second night we were there. Food was excellent. Like most restaurants of this quality, it's a little pricey. We went right... More
