We intentionally made sure to get to this place on Wednesday, as that's the day that Cyril Pahinui, Slack Key Guitar Master, performs. He is AMAZING! We were also there on a Friday, and the band was good, but not above the usual bar band, IMO.
This place puts its reputation (it's in the name!) on its music shows. The hostess, sorry I didn't get her name, talked about the history of the grille, which was celebrating its fourth birthday when we were there. The whole vibe was cool, fun, musical. Loved it.
The food was good too! We had sliders, the chicken curry dish, lovely drinks and some celebratory birthday cake (lemony and yummy). The waitstaff each time we were there was so nice, though I have to say the hostess who did the seating (not the lady who spoke from the stage) had something of a 'tude. She was put off by my displeasure about the seating on the Wednesday night, where she sat us in back where we had no view of Cyril. But the waiter, wish I could remember his name, kept an eye out on a better table for us, and moved us over as soon as a spot became available. Turns out we could have camped out at the poolside of the grille, and just relaxed on the chaise lounges, which seemed to be the spot people waited for tables. It was lovely listening to Cyril playing after we left our table.
The restaurant is located at the Outrigger Reef hotel. Don't forget to get out to the beach area on Friday nights and watch the fireworks show. That happens around 7:45; check listings for correct time. Fun!!
