We tried Uncle Bo's solely based on a picture of their Hobo dessert. And I have to say, ti was amazing and worth it. It is off the beaten path, but reasonably priced and local and so good. From the standpoint of atmosphere, the tables are close together but the 2 of us sat at the bar and it was... More

We went to Uncle Bo's as guests of some locals otherwise we probably never would have found the place. It's small and on the outside doesn't look like much. It's only open for dinner and fills up fast so best to make reservations otherwise you will be stuck in a long line outside. We decided to get a bunch of... More

Believe me. This place is a true gem in waikiki. The food is amazing and the service outstanding. We were there twice in one week. Absolutely one of the highlights of our trip and we made sure it was our last meal in Hawaii. Try the dynamite shrimp. The SOS and the amazing cocktails.

Uncle Bo's is off the beaten path but what a gem. Definitely worth getting there. Our waitress suggested getting several pupu's( Hawaiian appetizers) -and sharing family style. We ordered dynamite shrimp, hamachi sashimi, spicy tuna bowl and plain grilled shrimp with steamed veggies. Everything came out very quickly. Each dish was very flavorful and pretty good sized. There was plenty... More

Very good hospitality. Tables are too close together so I felt a little bit too crowed. Plate presentations are very beautiful. for appetizer we had the dynamite shrimp, Kalua pig fried and six little piggies. Very good. King crab legs were good. Braised beef was also good.

Uncle Bo's is for everyone. When dinning there it is an experience that you will remember. The staff was great we never had to wave them down for any thing during our outing. The Decoration of this place was nice and relaxing. Trust me you will enjoy it just like my family and friend from out of town. Aloha and... More

A great change from the chain restaurants of Waikiki this place serves up Hawaiian food with some refinement and class. You still get big portions and the service is fast and friendly. Very glad we made the effort to visit and we will be back. The only criticism of the food would be that some of it was slightly underseasoned.... More

The calamari pupu was maybe the best I have ever had. The chicken Alfredo was really amazing. The drinks were light handed seeming almost virgin.

This was one of our best dining out experiences in Honolulu. What a great place to eat. Inexpensive, great food and a very popular venue. Suggest you book! We went there with to have a catch-up meal with friends who recommended it as a unique experience. They were right. The place was full of locals and it was a week... More

Waikiki is corporate, hype, long waits. It's a disappointment. Who wants to travel far at the end of a busy day, and not deal with one hour waits for a corporate place? This is your neighborhood answer. Glad our hotel employee led us there. This great restaurant is just a few minutes away from Waikiki.
