“Excellent food in a casual setting”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

My teenage son and I had a delicious dinner here the first day we arrived in Honolulu. We were jet-lagged (my wife and daughter were napping!), so wanted something nearby and casual. We were staying at the Moana Surfrider and this restaurant was right next door. The seafood was fresh and well-prepared and my son enjoyed the ribs. The Mai Tai was the best I have ever had, mixed with fresh juices! The service was a little slow, but they were very busy.

“Good for brunch”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Pleasant spot for a Sunday brunch with a sea view, half-priced excellent mimosas and lots of choices. Our waiter here was particularly helpful with our local questions.

“Good but not as great as it has been”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I love the Hula Grill, our first stop and then we end back here every third or fourth night throughout our visit - usually, but not this visit. It was ok the crab wontons very good, the fish was dry and over cooked, the service from waiter average but drink staff and clearing staff excellent. Love the view and it was pleasant and maybe it was just a super busy night but there are so many other choices we only went the once in our 11 day visit.
