Steak Shack was recommended to us by my kids' surf instructor. I did not have high expectations, especially after seeing it. A two person operation--one cooks the other makes up the plates and takes orders--Steak Shack is just what the name implies, a shack at the beach. But, the food was fantastic. Choices are steak plate (steak cooked on grill and served up with rice and salad) or chicken (with the same). Steak is $7 and Chicken (thigh) is $6.50. Steak was yummy as was the sticky rice. Salad is ordinary with bottled dressing, but the price is right. Really hit the spot after a hard morning of surfing and swimming.

The seating is, of course, outside--like mini picnic tables that are used by all of the restaurants along the little strip. It's a beach place so don't expect luxury. But, you can see the beach.

Side note--do NOT be lured in by the fruit drinks at the place across from the Steak Shack. They are really expensive and so, So, SO terrible. For dessert, go for the Shave Ice instead!

We stayed in the Waikiki Shore and for our Friday Night dinner we picked up dinner from the Steak Shack and took it up to our balcony and enjoyed the Fireworks.
You can NOT beat the price. The steak was cooked to order (medium in our case) and the side salad and rice was great. It was the cheapest, yet most filling, meal we had while in Honolulu. Our 9 year old daughter enjoyed the meal as well.
$7 each - to go only

I had forgotten my TA notes telling me where exactly to find the Steak Shack, so it took us a bit but was worth the effort. (It's right by the Outrigger Reef next to Subway.) Lots of food for your money. Steak was tender and well seasoned. Plenty of rice and salad filled the rest of the plate. We ate and watched the fireworks on the beach.

I read all the reviews and dragged the family to this place on the beach
It is a small unit with no space and simple setup. But the food is corresponding. It may be cheap(ish) but not great. It's fried meat. Either chicken or beef. You get a blob of plain rice and a salad that comes with a choice of 3 basic dressings. The meat passable but not great and certainly not tasty
The family were not impressed and neither was I
