The lineup to get in here (just for lunch) was massive but my friend I managed to squeeze in at the bar. The drinks were very good but food was only okay. Nothing special. The servers were run off their feet because it was so busy, so service was also only okay.

We enjoyed a very tasty lunch here, but they were pretty smart with offering drinks in a pineapple as it truly does make for the perfect Hawaiian photo opp. I think the drinks are like $18, so sip it with pleasure, but get your photo in first!

I had the Hawaiian burger and my husband had the nachos - both were excellent. The kids enjoyed one of the POW drinks served in a pineapple - pricey but fun. Service was good and worth the 15 minute wait.

Service was the highlight. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive and did everything to make our dinner experience a great one.
Food was more hit and miss. Grilled fish and ribs were delicious. Island taco was a bit of a let down. It was missing something to bring depth to it and was overwhelmed by the sweetness of the pineapple salsa. Maybe some spicy sauce would have helped.
Cocktails were perfect.
I would definitely give it another try.
