“Best value on Waikiki Beach”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

The Steak Shack is a little booth on Waikiki Beach at the Outrigger Reef resort. It is so small that it is very easy to miss. I have to thank my TripAdvisor friends for leading me to this place, because I never would have stopped there if I'd seen it without reading your reviews, and I never would have found it at all without your help.

There are three choices: steak, chicken, and steak-and-chicken. All three come with rice and a simple iceberg-carrot-red cabbage salad. You pay $6.25 or $10.00 (for the combination) in cash and get your food in a styrofoam container. As the other reviewers said: this is a take-out operation only, but there are outdoor tables a few feet away associated with Ft. Derussy Beach Park.

The meats are cooked to order on a tiny grill while you watch, and both the steak and chicken were excellent (I had one, hubby had the other). I particularly liked how the chicken had no cartilage or gristle. Don't forget to douse your chicken (and maybe even your steak) in their homemade teriyaki sauce!

The Steak Shack is very convenient to the resorts on the west end of Waikiki Beach. We were staying at the Lagoon Tower of the Hilton Hawaiian Village and it only took us a leisurely 15 minute stroll down the beachside sidewalk to the Steak Shack. Look for the Subway at the Outrigger Reef and you'll find the Steak Shack nearby. Get there early, because they close at 7.

“Great. Tender tasty chicken. Good value”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

This little place is located under the Waikiki Shore, a couple steps up from the beach.
We ordered just before they were clsing at 7pm.
Husband had steak with rice & salad & dressing ( they have a choice of dressings as well & will cook your meat to order ) I had chicken with rice & salad.
The chicken was very tasty & tender.........all meat ( no fat, gristle or bones ).
Well worth trying out. Plenty of places in vicinity to eat & watch the action.
Well done to the folks that run the place.

“Awesome steak”
Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

This place is amazing. It's literally on the beach and the food is fantastic. Besides the place that serves eggs and things, this was my favorite place to eat in Waikiki.
