I've been coming to this place for over 10 years now to watch anything from NFL, baseball games and even Olympic diving. The wings here are always on point and in my view the best on the island as far as what spicy buffalo wings should be. The service is also just right, not in your face every minute and... More

We started out at the Safeway Foods tofu d something to eat and take to the beach. Then I saw a burger shack and we decided to eat there. The first thing we did was hit the restroom and that was quite gross. I wasn't sure if we should eat here. I walked to the back of the restaurant and... More

My husband and I stopped in for drinks after an afternoon at Portlock beach, on Saturday, June 4. This was around or close to 3:00pm. We sat at a table and didn't wait long for a server to take our order. We noticed all the tvs were showing the UFC fight. We order our first pitcher of beer and shortly... More

Chris, though I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your beer and appetizer, I apologize we didn't do a better job communicating about the UFC Fight -- that's definitely on us. We usually have a better system in place, and I hope you'll give us another chance to make it right with you. Thank you for the feedback! Warmly, Andy L,... More

Stopped here on our trip around the south east end of the island. Beautiful views of Koko Head from the outside seating. Pretty much a bar that serves great burgers and local Hawaiian plates. Try the oriental lunch plate. The whole family will find something they will like and awesome curly French fries. Try a local lunch plate- you will... More

Been here twice since moving to Hawaii Kai. Both times, the food was good and the service was great. The decor is comforting in traditional Hawaiian-bar style. Nice patio to get a little water view. Burgers and sandwiches were good. Cooked perfectly and came out heat-hot with no waiting around under the heat lamps. Servers and bartender were terrific.

This place is outside of Waikiki and you do need a car to get to it. It's a local bar in a small plaza that has a Safeway and Longs Drugstore in it. It's a good place to get a bunch of appetizers, a pitcher of beer and share. The sliders are my favourite!

Good place to stop in for a quick bite to eat. Burgers are always a favorite. Kick back on the outer deck for a beautiful view over the water.

The food here is not very good. The service is hit and miss. The atmosphere is also not very good - unless you are here to drink and party. So if you want a good meal with the family, this is not for you but if you want to throw down some beers and don't care what the food tastes... More

It's HUGE inside and they have plenty of seating out front and in the rear with al fresco tables overlooking the marina a Koko Head mountain . It was a super cool island atmosphere.
