We had cheeseburgers and fries. Burgers were very good. We were half through with our burgers before we got our fries. Sea salt fries were hot and good when they arrived. They seemed short staffed. It took a while to get waited on and a good wait for the food. It was around 2 pm so they were not overly... More

I'll start by saying I may have made bad choices because my husband's fish was good but not outstanding. I started with oysters which were about the size of a quarter but they were tasty. When I see ceviche on the menu I go for it but what I got was raw fish in some kind of creamy sauce that... More

Excellent food, located in Kukuiula shopping center. Upstairs is for dinner, and they have a location downstairs for lunch, etc.

I had seared ahi ahi, which was magnificent. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. They also serve French pressed coffee, which was a bonus.

Not a very large menu which was a bit disappointing. Only 1 fresh fish option which seemed odd for a restaurant in Hawaii.

We have eaten here every year about this time and have always been very impressed. This time, we were very disappointed. First, we were told the wait would be 45 minutes, so we sat at the bar to wait. The place was 75% empty the entire time we waited. Finally after 45 minutes, we were seated at a table that... More

We ate at most of the main restaurants while there. This one appeared on the surface to be a fine dining fish restaurant, but I am sorry to say that was not our experience. This was our least favourite, as the portions were the tiniest we ate anywhere and the price too was well above average and not worth the... More

So-so dining experience. Slow service. Good but not great food. We will probably skip this place next time.

Nice little spot for a casual lunch and something cold to drink. Their pizza was excellent ( had a different type on two separate occasions ) . Outside seating is comfortable and relaxing.
