Problems started as soon as we turned up. Planned to have a few drinks for happy hour in the lobby before dining with them. Booked out in the lobby (even though we had a dinner reservation!) and wouldn't allow us happy hour prices as that...More

This is the pinnacle of fine dining. So much history here. And it doesn't disappoint. We had the delmonico and t bone. Big serves. Cooked perfectly. Sauces could have had a bit more zing but that's personal. Leave room for desert. We had the Banana...More

This is by far the best steakhouse in Honolulu. I like one other place almost as much but here is not the place to tell you about them.... Hy's has been around a long time - over 40 years! - and when you have dinner...More

We had dinner here few days ago. The food was good and the place was beautiful. I had 4 different people aproaching to my table trying to get a drink order right away. Kind of a littel rushy eventhough could have been attentive too. At...More

The perfect experience! The service was above and beyond as well as everything else. It would be a disservice to dwell on any one thing when all was so great. Prices are up there but not out of line with the neiborhood. I recommend giving...More

After not visiting Hy's for about 5 years, for a birthday celebration we decided to go to Hy's. Unfortunately it was not as we remembered. The beef wellington and the service were great but unfortunately the garlic steak did not have too much garlic taste...More

Not a good choice for a large party. I suggest you find a different venue for the wedding party and then enjoy the quite ambiance of Hy's the next night with a few close friends. Best of both worlds.

Join us for select Holiday brunch buffets, celebrate your family holiday traditions at Honolulu's most iconic restaurants. Hy's Steak House, one of the best-known steakhouses in Hawaii, has been a tradition in Waikiki for 40 years and continues to be a favorite with visitors and locals alike.

Tuxedoed waiters expertly prepare Caesar Salad, carve Chateaubriand for two and flambè delicious desserts (like Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee ) tableside.

The real specialties of this steak house, of course, are the USDA Prime grade cuts of beef - New York Strip, Porterhouse T-Bone, Delmonico and Filet Mignon - which are dry-aged and trimmed on the premises. The kiawe wood sears the steaks with an intense heat, while complementing the flavor of the fine beef perfectly.

Enjoy a cognac or glass of Port from Hy's full bar in the intimacy of the library lounge, while enjoying the acoustic musical offerings of Audy Kimura, Vernon Sakata or Chris Hopper.
