“Excellent Value for a Plate Lunch in Waikiki”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We had a hard time finding this place because it is hiding in the rear of a hotel. If you try using the street number (2161 Kalia Road), none fo the buildings are marked with an address.The easiest way to find it is to go to rear of
the U. S. Army Museum of Hawaii in Fort DeRussy Park. In the hotel to the East, there are a number of small shops overlooking the path between the museum and hotel. From the "Boardwalk" / Path that follows the shoreline, go up a few stairs and you will be staring at the Stack Shack and a couple other similar businesses.

We got the regular steak plate (for the missus) and the chicken/steak combo plate (for me). She loved the marinade/spices on the steak. I liked the steak also, but not as much. The chicken teriyaki was okay, but nothing special. I actually liked the salad with thousand Island dressing more than the steak and chicken. Both plates came with a bunch of white rice that we had to skip (too many carbs).

We sat on the benches behind the museum and watched the passing crowd as we ate. The pigeons came begging, but we didn't want to encourage them. If we fed one, we would have been mobbed by dozens. Canned soda's were $1.50. The combo plate around 11.50 and the steak plate around $7.00.

This was a great value for lunch, given Waikiki. We typically were paying at least $30 or more everywhere else (for 2).

“Best value take-out in Waikiki!”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Not the easiest place to find by the beach but the Steak Shack offers the quickest, cheapest and tastiest take-out in Waikiki. The girl who took our order must have been having a bad day as she was not friendly at all but the cook made up for it! The food was really good and the price perfect! Our meal was ready in a snap and we enjoyed watching the action on the beach while we ate. This place is great value for families on a budget.

“great value”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

The meal was great with a front row seat for the sunset and fireworks. The beach is a little sketchy and the bathroom facilities are yuck but the Steak Shack was wonderful!

“Hawaiian "Steak Fry" at its best”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

I have had numerous charity "Steak Frys" here in Hawaii, consisting of salad, rice and grilled marinated steak. The Steak Shack elevates this Hawaiian staple to a fantastic lunch. Located next to the beach, it can be a little difficult to find but is the best buy in all of the Waikiki area.
