“Needs some overhaul in downstairs pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

They need to hire better bar tenders for their downstairs pub....those girls need a refresher course in good manners and taught how to smile to the customer.......if they expect to get a tip for their surly ways they better think twice. On the other hand, the bar tenders in the upstairs pub are the greatest...they take their time to welcome you and make you feel welcome.

The "wings" and "tacos" are great...no complaints there....the food is enjoyable and you get a lot on your plate.

All in all, go upstairs if you want better service....you'll have a chance to mingle and have a great time...especially on Tuesday Nights when the drinks are $1.00, $2.00 and $3.00 from 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. It gets quite busy, so it's wise to go early...great music and dancing till the wee hours. "Tats" and Dave in the upstairs pub are the greatest bar tenders I've met in a long time.

“Great Service & Happy Hour Specials”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

We went there to eat and watch a Vancouver Canuck playoff game.They sat us at a table with a good view of their TV's. Order some drinks (a Mai Tai for 3.00)!! Once we figured out what we wanted to eat we gave our order to our waitress but asked her to hang onto them as we weren't quite hungry. She said just to give her a sign and she would put the order in. About 40 minutes later we gave her a wave and our meals arrived not too long after. GREAT Sevice and wonderful staff. Again they have some great specials and meals were good.

“Great for breakfast and cocktails!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

We first visited here for cocktails after walking past and seeing their excellent Happy Hour promo. The cocktails were amongst the best I've ever tasted and they had a great selection. During Happy Hour they were only $4! Beer was about $3 during Happy Hour. Service was great and we were very impressed. Outwith HH they do $3 mai tai, great place to visit. When reading through one of the many visitor guides available in Honolulu I spotted a voucher for 2 for 1 breakfast here so we decided to give it a try. It didn't disappoint! The portions were excellent, great choice and really tasty. We would have visited more had we been in Honolulu for longer. Wish I could go there for a cocktail right now!

“Excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

I was a bit leary about going to Moose's for breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised. The service and food was very good. They have a good selection of breakfast items. It is a bar by night, but aside from the layout, you couldn't tell. It wasn't smelly or dark as some bars are. We found a coupon in the best of Oahu guide, I understand they are also in the visitors guide. Glad we tried it.
