Description: For the past 29 years, Island residents and tourists alike have flocked to the Shore Bird, making it one of Waikiki's most venerated institutions. It's the thrill of the grill that has captured guests imaginations and appetites for more than two decades. Shore Bird is not just a place to eat. Shore Bird is an experience where all guests have a lot of fun! Servers interact with our guests and not just serve them. The over all concept is "Aloha". Guests are responsible for for grilling their own dinner entrees but they don't have to be master barbecurers. An experienced grill hand and a large clock help make the process easy. Here's how it works: Steaks and seafood come to the table fresh on a platter with instructions. Guest are able to season and then prepare their entree exactly to their liking . All entrees include the salad bar, which showcases more than 25 items, such as fresh greens, garnishes, fruits, tako poke, rice, bread and pasta.

We wanted to eat breakfast on the beach, so we tried it. The selection was nice and for Waikiki, the price was reasonable. It was a buffet, but it did include the juice and coffee. It was simples, but offered a lot of fresh fruit and did have a carving station for meet, but no omelet station. We made a reservation, so we were given a seat right in the wall next to the beach. It was a great way to start the morning.

It's tough to beat the utterly beautiful seaside/beach view here — just the chaser for your cocktail or your second time around the buffet. Speaking of the latter, the buffet is nothing to write home about — it's OK, but not the best in the area (for that, go to Halekulani's Orchids, which all of us locals/kamaainas swear by). Why is there no one hanging here in the late afternoon? It's incredibly hot and the sun blasts down at full power — we locals like it shadier, but if heat and blistering sun is your speed, that's your time to visit.

Aloha KME C.,
Thank you for joining us and taking the time to write us a review. We try to control the temperature of the restaurant as best we can, it is an open air restaurant and some days the sun is hotter than others. For the most part the weather cooperates with us. We hope to see you again!

View was fantastic and our server was adorable! Drinks also were great! The mahi mahi was really good. Be prepared to cook your own food! However, if you mistakenly undertook your food, the chef will take it over. Great salad bar and fun beachy atmosphere!

This restaurant gets great reviews for it's breakfast. But we were dissapointed with the food selection on the $14.95 buffet.

It is a "Hawaiian" buffet breakfast. Good if that is what you wish for. But as far as any American breakfast selections go, the only items available on the buffet was scrambled eggs and some bacon. That is it.

I got the impression the buffet area felt like it was left over from 1970's.

But the view is great. Shame they don't do something better with this venue.

Right on Waikiki Beach, you select and grill your own meat. All you can eat salad bar had limited choices but was good. Open to the beach, but those seats have much longer waits. Mai Tai specials until 5 pm only $3.50, compared to $8.95. I'm a day drink believer!
