Had 4 of the plates for takeout plus some sides. Food was OK....just not something I would do again. The medium rare hamburger covered in fried egg and over rice with gravy was just odd. The grilled beef flank ribs were good. Beans were good....More

Huli Huli Chicken and Kalua pork is very good. Extensive beer list includes craft beers. Good spot for a casual dinner with the family.

First of all, this place is located in what looked to us like an industrial commercial zone. Second, price was outrageous for what we got! We started off with 1(one plate) of Ahi Poke. Serving consisted of @ 1/4 cup of Ahi Poke and triple...More

Finally had a chance to try this place out last Weekend - talk about impressed! We expected this to be a more basic, order-at-the-counter type of place, but it's a very comfortable sit-down restaurant with table service. Not fancy, but nicely decorated & clean, with...More

Hidden Gem lost amongst a quiet business park in Grantville. From the outside, it looks like a drab 70's era warehouse, but the gem is revealed as you step inside. This place is spacious with big picnic sized tables centering the dining room and smaller two-and four-seater tables aligning the Hawaiiana decorated walls. The bar is handcrafted and has dozens of local, Hawaiian, and imported craft beers. A foosball table is to the left of a small stage area where they have live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. The two big screen TVs are usually on sports or something funky while kick-back tunes play in the background.
