Stopped in for dinner. Ordered ribeye steak. My friend got the roast pork. We also got the tatter tots appetizer. The appetizer could have sufficed for meals for both of us--a heaping platter of potatoes and other goodies. The entrees also arrived on platters--smothered in onions and spices. Ask for chop sticks and a knife is recommended. Doggie bags are... More

This place is well off the beaten path for the average Hawaiian tourist but man it is not to be missed. This was the second time I visited this place and it will not be my last. The food is authentic and the staff perfect. Do not expect fancy but expect to get good ordering advice from the staff. Do... More

I hate giving a good review in fear of this spot becoming too popular. Bottom line the staff are hella cool, the beer is ice cold and the food is epic and far from your average bar food.

Thanks to TripAdvisor's amazing feature of "what's nearby" we stumbled upon this gem! Don't let the outside exterior or inside photos fool you! Google the place and read about the founders! It might not be easy to get a seat but when you do be prepared for outstanding service and crazy good food with huge portions! Try the tot nachos... More

The portions are massive so don't order too much! We got the loaded tator tot nachos, the noodles with rib tips and a burger and couldn't even eat half of what was on the table. Everything was delicious. The location is a bit questionable and the building looks like a shack from the outside.... But the inside has a cool... More

Honest food in a simple lively and nice setting mainly frequented by local teenagers. Medium price. Serves cocktails and beer. Can get unbelievably noisy; so if you look for a quiet romantic dinner place, this is definitely not your first choice.

This place has great food and drinks. And the service was outstanding. Prices were not bad and parking is limited but well worth a visit.

This place isn't very big, but it's packed with waitress that provide excellent service. Meals are big portions. I ordered the hamburger steak and asked if they could substitute the rice for tater tots, they obliged. Wow, tasty! The gravy really pulled it all together. They charged an extra $3 but it was well worth it. It's a very lively... More

Location ----------- Parking is very limited at its front entrance. The trick is to park BEHIND the restaurant pub, or get valet. Or come early, around 6pm. Age Limit and Reservation ----------------------------- There's a minimum age limit of 21-years-old. ID WILL be checked before you're allowed to order, even if you look obviously in your 30s. Although some other reviewers... More
