It didn't seem most people really knew about this place. It is a distance away from the crowds of the boardwalk but was an absolute gem to find. The hamburger steak was delicious. We sat right by the water and had lunch. Beautiful view

The food was surprisingly good. It is basically just a shack on the beach. But the food tasted really good. And the prices are really, really reasonable, especially for Honolulu. I'm glad we found this place and went here instead of one of the many...More
