“Good drinks and appetizers but VERY expensive for what you get.”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We were staying at the Outrigger Reef and came in from the airport STARVING. We didn't even go to the room before hitting the Grille at the pool on the ground level after checking in. We should have walked around just a little bit more and would have saved a bunch! My son got a little flatbread pizza ($12) that was maybe worth $5, if that. My husband and I shared a kalua pork quesadilla which was delicious but I think $14? Drinks are $10 flat. Plus tip we were around $60 for basically a snack and a drink. That's Waikiki for you (unless you do some research first!). ;)

“Great poolside food and service.”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Good variety in the menu; Happy Hour 3-5PM (1/2 price drinks); great service. Live nightly music and a great place to socialize with your own party or meet new people.

“Nice poolside location”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We had appetizers here on our first night in Waikiki. The food and service were very good and the nightly entertainment was excellent. Not sure what it would be like for a full meal but for drinks and bites it was very good.

“Breakfast pool side”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Food is good quality and reasonably priced. Was nice sitting outside near the water fountain and pool and having a good breakfast in the sunshine.
