Ok straight up...If you're looking for atmosphere then move along to some overpriced restaurant in Waikiki but if you're looking for delicious Hawaiian food that's very affordable then you need to eat here. I was bummed that never had laulau or beef stew but thats...More

I read posts from other people giving a 'poor' review to Hale Kealoha and I wonder! If you are looking for a big chain, fancy or classy menu kind of restaurant, you are in the wrong place. Hale in Hawaiian translate home and Kealoha means...More

The restaurant is in a crap section of an old bowling alley first of all...so it's hard to find and creepy. Then inside the atmosphere is dark and not inviting, plastic tables and chairs on concrete. It's a weird place. The air conditioning is good....More

Enjoyed the Hawaiian cuisine for lunch. Poke salad and grilled salmon salads were excellent. Only downside is the atmosphere. Felt like I was eating inside a community center; on folding tables and chairs.

Great Hawaiian food here, all home made too. Atmosphere is spartan, but at least they have air conditioning now. It's a family business do please support them. Paina plate is my favorite, shared with my husband.

This is an unique experience you don't want to miss! The menu is REAL HAWAIIAN food. The restaurant reminds me of a VFW Hall, with long tables that you share with others when it gets busy. This is not a Duke's or Haleiwa Joe's by...More
