Four of us were tired of Waikiki’s expensive price & touristic amount of food. But this place is something that we want! Great portion, taste, no Japanese tourist ( by the way we are 4 Japanese party), something that we wanted to experience in USA.

It should be called Seahawks Bars since that's the only team decor in there. lol Cute waitresses. Small, too loud to enjoy your game (unless you're the group making all the noise then could be fun), people smoke at the door and it fills the...More

Got introduced to Home Bar from a very good friend. So happy she took us there years ago. I come here every time I'm in HI. Service is great and food is on point. There isn't anything on their menu that doesn't taste hella good.

My buddy raved about this place so we visited on a weekday night and surprising, it was crowded…would I return? Despite his stellar recommendations, probably not. He raved about the food – unfortunately, the cook did not deliver and the décor? So-so. When I walked...More
