Honey’s Restaurant


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

Honey's Restaurant in Kaneohe, Hawaii is named after legendary Don Ho's mother Emily "Honey" Ho. Once called Honey's Bar and Honey's Café, it was a local favorite and landmark on the windward side of the island of Oahu in the 1940s until the 1970s. Incepted by Don Ho's parents Jimmy and Honey Ho in 1939, this nostalgic, intimate, casual, elegant restaurant continues to be a favorite eatery for locals and visitors alike with local, home-grown Hawaiian music like the ol' times. As Honey did, we too are excited to share the passion and love of Hawaiian music and Pacific Asian-Fusion, local-style foods with the local community and our visitors abroad! We welcome everyone!

We ordered French dip sandwiches and garden salads. Both were very good but French dips didn’t come with cheese... guess you have to request it. Service was great! Atmosphere was very quiet and nice. I can think of many occasions one could host a catered...More

I believe so just give them advance notice. It IS a nice change from Kualoa Ranch! This is a gem nestled in the Ko'olau mountain range at the golf club.
