Our favorite thing on their menu when we were there was an appetizer called pepper seared scollops. We had it for appetizer the first time we ate there, and loved it so much we had it for an entree with a side dish our last night at the hotel.

The fish is fresh and the food is very good. I tried the prime rib and found it just ok on our first visit. We both had fish the second time we visited and is was very good. The arugula salad with the poached pears and walnuts was particularly terrific. We really like this hotel and this restaurant is on site. Service was wonderful.

Aloha Karenneworleans,

Thank you for dinning with us during your stay that the Outrigger Reef on the Beach! Our Chefs takes good care in preparing the fresh fish special, it changes nightly and it is always delicious. We are glad that you got to enjoy it on two separate occasions. And the arugula salad with poached pears is one of my favorites ;)

Mahalo & Happy Holidays!

Everything was just perfect here, including the view, the food, and the waitstaff. We had made reservations, and we were promptly seated. Our waiter, Jason, was the best. He explained the menu, and he seemed like he really enjoyed his job interacting with people. The view was exceptional, at night, with all the torches lit, and people just walking the beach. The food here was excellent, and all 5 of us were pleased with our food. This is a restaurant that we will definitely return to, if we are in Oahu again.

Served from 5 until 6 (you must be seated by 6). The prime rib is very tasty and a generous portion.

Aloha Denver John,

Thank you for dining with us at the Ocean House. Glad you enjoyed our sunset special Prime Rib. It's one of my favorites too! Angus Beef Slow roasted with Hawaiian sea salt, garlic and pepper seasonings, served with home made mashed potatoes, English peas and creamy horse radish. Coming from a guy from Nebraska I'd say that this is big compliment!

Happy Holidays

We dined at the Ocean House Restaurant at Sunset, and saw the most amazing sunset as the restaurant lifted the sun screen just beforehand, just AMAZING!! The drinks here were outstanding, and the Seafood Lau Lau was nothing short of perfection, Jason was our server and was outstanding, the desert was fabulous as well, if you like amazing seafood and steak sitting on Waikiki beach for a sunset you'll never forget, pick this place and call ahead for Waikiki beach seating, you'll never forget the experience.
