“Right on the beach, too!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We ate at the Steak Shack for the first time a couple of weeks ago. We had read about it on previous trips to Oahu, and actually had walked by it a couple of times but kept thinking "This can't be the place we're looking for!" The name fits it perfectly, but don't let that deter you. It is right on the beach at the Castle Waikiki Shore condo, which is next to the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. After a long day of swimming and "beaching" it is the perfect place to grab a meal to satisfy the appetite you've worked up. For $6.95 there is no better place on Waikiki to have steak (albeit sliced and grilled and on a bed of rice) and a salad.

“OMG hidden gem right on the beach”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Ok so its not a 5 star restaurant nor is it a dine in place but OMG this is the best value on Waikiki beach around. It was even better than our meal at Dukes!!
Steak, rice and salad for $6.95 cooked fresh and served in takeaway containers it was tasty and super value. I had the chicken plate, same price. If you want a quick bite to eat sitting on the beach watching the sunset then you MUST try this place it really is great!

“No frills Oahu”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

After flying all day and checking into our hotel we decided a fast and easy meal was in order. Decided to take the advice of our fellow trip advisors and head down to the steak shack. It was about 4:30 and like others have said not busy at all. It was easy to find if you follow the directions given in previous reviews, we walked through fort drusey to the beach walk and headed right to it... it is right under the subway sign. Little tables with stools all around no problem with sitting and watching the crowds walk by as we enjoyed a tasty reasonable meal. I am sure if we have a chance a second trip will happen. The two workers we so nice and friendly and we had 4 drinks and 4 combos and it was under 50.00! Not bad at all considering that we spend 52.00 on 4 drinks and some crappy little breakfast burritos at the airport and felt it was a rip off.. Everyone was full and enjoyed it. The rice was perfect and chicken and steak was flavorful and filling. No it isn't a 5 star steak and yes I have had lots better steak and chicken and the salad is just a ready pack but, to feed 4 on the beach for that price? If you are budget minded it is a great option. Stop by with confidence and see why everyone is always bragging about this little gem on the beach!

“GREAT PRICE FOR A QUICK MEAL AT THE BEACH”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

We went at 4pm and it was not busy. It's right on the beach next to Fort DeRussy Beach Park and the US Army Museum. It's right underneath the Waikiki Shore. We had the steak and rice for $6.95 it was seasoned well with great flavor and cooked perfectly. Portion was good. Salad on the side was fresh but nothing fancy. You can't beat the price and the view. Will definately go back again!

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Eat here if you are in walking distance - but don't drive out of your way. If you are driving- any Zippys ( my favorite island food) would be a better choice.The steak was thin and contained a little grizzle, but still very good for the price. Sit at a table overlooking the ocean...there was no line at 4pm. Have a dole whip cone from the booth across the deck. Only problem is the beach rest rooms aren't the best. So eat and then go...somewhere else.
