This place has awesome food! Tender meat and flavorful sides. They also sell different Hawaiian goods throughout the store which is super cool. The service is phenomenal and they're always so helpful and happy to see you.

We ordered two combo take out dinners which featured a Pacific island take on pulled pork and chicken. Milwaukee has a number of BBQ places, but after trying quite a few, we felt the taste and texture of the BBQ meats on the combo plate were among the best we've had: nice smokey flavor but not overwhelming and meats were...

My wife has been to Hawaii several times and is happy to report this place does a great job with their food. I have nothing to compare it to, but I find the food excellent, the service exceptional, the atmosphere unique, and the value is wonderful! This place is quirky, and I love it. The proprietor is incredibly welcoming and... More

Love this place. Prices are good, service is superb, and the food is consistently outstanding. The prices initially seemed a bit high, but then I realized my wife and I got like 3 meals out of one serving. They close for like a week each year while they go back to Hawaii to get new inspiration and recipe ideas. We... More

As always, I looked to Trip Advisor for recommendations for our weekend near Milwaukee. As always, our hotel recommended all the chains. We stopped in for takeout and knew as soon as we walked in that we made the right choice. Friendly staff, authentic, have good descriptions of the meal options, no rush, no hurry. Part of the beauty of... More

I live a few miles from this place and can't believe I've never tried it. The food is awesome and the service is excellent and the price is low for the whopping size of the meals. I love the macaroni potato salad and my wife loves the pineapple carrot slaw so we just switcheroo.

This charming store is run by two wonderful gentlemen, David and Guy. You are greeted warmly upon entering the store. They offer an outstanding variety of products they get shipped from Hawaii. My husband and I regularly buy their Private Reserve Kona Blend coffee. Best coffee bean we've ever tasted! And they offer take away bakery, poke, and delicious plates... More

You have got to try their food. There may be a little wait, so call in your order in advance. Amazing soups, meats, sauces, everything authentic and fresh.

Met my boyfriend for lunch last Friday (6/17) He had been here before & I always wanted to go. It was amazing! They offer a very small dine-in section. We were surprised because we expected to get take-out. We ordered the Ahi Tuna Poke with 2 "Crack" Ice teas to start. The tuna was so fresh & delicious plus there... More

Stopped here with friends because we read reviews on TripAdvisor. I have never been to Hawaii but loved the pork, chicken and sides here. We will definitely be back!
