We were told to get here early, as it gets busy and has a line if you go later.....so we did. This is a neighbourhood bar with good food that is not open at lunch. It does get quite noisy, but we'd certainly go again....More

Food was awesome. I had the S.O.S and my husband had the garlic ribeye. Portions were huge and delicious. Atmosphere was really nice inside.

Fantastic seafood and service. The S.O.S. and Baked Opah Mauna Kea could not have been better prepared. The Boca Rota appetizer was amazing. Best to choose from their recommend selections. Generous portions and reasonably prices.

Love the pupu menu at Uncle Bo's. The clams are the best I have ever had. I like the pizza also. I really have liked all the food I have ordered here.

We made one and glad we did. It was very busy. Don't think we would've gotten in without one.

Street right next to restaurant. We did go early (6:30) so I don't know the availability later in the evening
Can we have a nice dinner without a headache from loud music?

I didn't notice loud music. They have 2 separate dining areas. The area in the back of the restaurant seemed more secluded. We sat in the front and the seating was very close so you find yourself in conversation with the... More
