I love local Hawaiian places, and Ono Family restaurant didn't disappoint! I had a wonderful, fresh ahi sandwich that was preceded by a lovely garden salad. The food arrived quickly, and the fish was excellent. The salad greens tasted like they had just been picked,...More

They do a great burger and their fish and chips and fish sandwich were delicious. The staff was incredibly friendly. I've also heard it's great for breakfast but we only had the chance to try it for lunch and we were not disappointed.
