We enjoyed the freshest poke to date with their Poke Trio. The pesto poke was my favorite. The calamari steak strips were so tender in their lightly fried Panko batter. We also sampled Uncle's combo with two pieces of fresh fish, shrimp and more fried calamari. Our server, Melissa was very nice. Grab some friends to share the Uber costs... More

23-July-2016 Family ( incl. 2 teens ) went with / on recommendation of brother-in-law and nephew ( 3 yrs ) to Uncle's Fish Market & Grill. Located at the pier where local fishing boats come in to offload their catch to the fish market. Therefore, you can be assured the offerings at the restaurant are likely as fresh as you... More

This was our second visit to Uncles. Uncles is one of the few places to get REAL MAINE LOBSTER on Oahu. Our first visit was memorable for great things but our second was memorable for not so good things. I understand that I'm not living in New England and I hate to present the "where I'm from mentality" but FAKE... More

The long and expensive($25) taxi ride from Waikii is worth it. The seafood pasta was to die for. It's a casual place with reasonable prices. It sits on the pier so you can't get fresher seafood. I would highly recommend it.

We had a late lunch at Uncle's and we are sure glad we did. Located right on the fishing pier the fish is right off the boat. I had a nice size portion of Onaga that was flaky and flavorful. I had bread pudding that was unbelievably light and my wife had lillikoi chiffon cake that had just the right... More

We've had a couple meals at Uncle's. Food is consistently tasty and the service is good. It's a small restaurant so there may be a wait, but it would be worth it.

Went at lunch and the place was too loud to have a conversation across the table. Had Uncle's combo of calamari, fish and shrimp. Calamari had breading that fell off in the basket, fish was pretty dry, shrimp were good sized and tasted good. Average french fries. Not easy to find on the pier and parking is pretty haphazard.

Great food and service! I went for the Uncle's combo with fried fish, shrimp, & calamari with an upgrade to a salad instead of fries or rice. The regular Mai Tai is good and I really like the 1944 with fresh lilikoi. Don't be fooled by the size, it's small but mostly liquor and a delicious classic! I was traveling... More

We chose Uncle's because they had a variety of fish dishes in a relaxed setting. I liked the ambiance. I liked the absolutely great service. What I didn't like was the fish preparation. I am happy to report that the appetizer, Poke Tower, was great. Unfortunately our main meal was disappointing. I had fish (Opakapaka) and chips. The fish was... More
