Our favorite place for happy hour and dinner in the Ko Olina area. Great prices on drinks and appetizers for Happy hour. Huge selection of beers, unique cocktail blends and we really enjoyed the shrimp appetizer and the pizzas.

Waitstaff very friendly and helpful, the food was beyond delicious! I had the fish and chips and John had Ahi which was so good!! Appetizer we had the jalopeno poppers which were too spicy hot for me but John loved them. For dessert you absolutely must have one of their pies. We had the banana cream pie and it was heavenly. Good selection of beers if you like that stuff, and outdoor seating. Awesome place and we will definitely be back!!

A friend recommended this as an alternative to the excellent but more expensive restaurants at our resort (JW Marriott Ilihani Ko Olani). It was perfect choice. We ate outside, and there was excellent live music without being so overbearing that conversation was difficult.
We went at happy hour which was very popular. Great half price beer on tap. Being from OR, I was proud, but also mildly disappointed that at least half the 36 beers on tap were from OR. But I found some great local brew. The wine specials were also quite good.
If my wife wasn't gluten free we could have made an excellent meal from the half price appetizers. The Truffle Fries and the chicken wings were both excellent. We had the pork tacos and fish tacos, and would be hard pressed to say which was better. And the coconut cream pie was superb. All their cream pies are homemade, including the crust, and are worth the splurge. If you get the Ko Olani Welcome packet at your hotel, the discount card gets you a slice of pie free.
Our server was friendly, attentive and efficient. There were also lots of families with kids and it seemed a kid friendly place overall. It was a nice change of pace from the resort.

We had dinner there a few nights ago and it was absolutely delicious. There was 4 people in our party and everybody enjoyed their food. I had a red snapped that was perfectly cooked and we all finished by sharing a scrumptious coconut cream pie. We will definitely be back.

I am a foodie and hubby is not. We both enjoyed this wonderful restaurant. Come during Happy Hour and appetizers are 1/2 price!
