Went here for dinner last night, and were able to get seated immediately on the patio. That was the only thing that went quickly all evening. The waitress would routinely be completely out of sight for 10 minutes at a time, so we quickly learned...More

We had a party of four and tried three different burgers and the veggie sandwich, sweet potato and onion rings. Juicy burgers cooked perfectly to our order, great fries, and tasty thin sliced onion rings. An added benefit is walking though the Kahala shopping mall...More

Our kids who live in Honolulu took us to the Counter tonight. Most of the food was good with lots of choices of what you wanted on the burger. The manager even came around to see if everything was OK. The meal was good but...More
