Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A must try place in Honolulu! So good we went twice! We had the Cajun Fries (the best fries we have had in a long time!!), Caprese Sandwich, Veggie Taco, and Chicken Burrito. Everything we had was excellent! You can't miss this place!

The steak and oni tacos are absolutely delicious I could have ate 3 of each of them. I did not like the shrimp tacos, I was trying to branch out and ended up disappointed.

Place was open and 3 employees were seen. No one said anything to us as we stood at the "place order" sign by the cash register. We waited 5 minutes and were completely ignored although we made eye contact with all three employees who were...chatting it up and having a great time. We left, and went next door to a wonderful place called Cafe Morey's. So walk on by this place that doesn't need customers and go to Morey's.More

This was a great find - came twice for lunch. The burritos and tacos were wonderful, along with the garlic fries! If you’re in Honolulu, you need to try it!

Have been wanting to try this spot for a while. Living in Honolulu, we have a plethora of options so happy when we can try something new. Good night to try it as we got a parking spot right out front! The menu offered a...good variety of choices. We tried the chicken tacos and one of the plates with Ono fish and teriyaki chicken. Both of them delicious, enjoying the slaw and combination of tastes. The fish was a bit overcooked but flavorful. The order was taken quickly and questions about the menu answered well. As everything is cooked to order, the wait time was reasonable. Great location, can walk up from Waikiki or stop on oneʻs way up to or down from Leahi (Diamond Head) Prices are reasonable for Honolulu and that area. We would return but most likely order the tacos and try a burrito.More

This spot is great for delicious Hawaiian food at an incredibly reasonable price. Take the time to leave the hustle and bustle and expense of Waikiki "proper" and find it! I had their equivalent of surf and turf, the " Mauka Makai" - incredibly delicious...ono topped with a Macadamia Nut Pesto ( spend the whopping .50 cent "add -on" charge ) and boneless Kal-bi steak: delicious! While I was waiting to pick it up, a local insisted that I try the fish tacos - claimed they were among the best on the Island. I'll be back tomorrow and let you know!More

South Shore Grill is located in Waikiki. About a 10 minute drive from the beach. It's a small little shop with tasty food. They have yummy tacos, burritos or bowls. Chicken or fish. I got the chicken burrito. Delicious food. There is no restaurant parking....You park on the street. Yes its free street parking. Enjoy!More

Service was fast and friendly. Everyone liked what they ordered. Seating is limited. Parking was on the street, so at times that might be challenging. If you are walking it’s a mile from the south end of Waikiki. Fun atmosphere.

Small Taco Shop. Limited seating. Great food. Generous portions for a good price. I really enjoyed the Kal-bi Steak. They also have sandwiches for my family member that just wanted a BLT. :)

Amazing tacos! Great local place that had a mix of local food and basic American for those members of my family that don’t eat outside the box. Street parking. Very little seating but we were able to get seats and eat there. Had a nice...display of artwork from a local artist.More

Wanted to get some lunch before going on the Diamond Head trail. Were walking around and discovered the grill. Very informal which was good. Quite the selection of tacos and sandwiches. Decided to keep it simple and ordered a fish and chicken taco with a...side salad. Really delicious. Would definitely return given the opportunity.More

Been absent from Honolulu for 3 years, but got a chance to visit SouthShore Grill again. Price has increased, but to be expected. Food is just as good as pre Covid years. Staff are very friendly and provide very good service. Again, our favourites with...SS Mix BBQ and the chicken club salad. Always on our itinerary when in Honolulu.More

40 minutes before we got our food: We arrived at 7 pm to grab takeout and bring it back to our hotel. There was a long line outside and many phoned in orders ahead of us we soon learned. Small crowded kitchen: The kitchen didn't...seem equipped to handle the amount of orders they had. One chef and a couple of assistants who were slapping things together. The small grill had fish, chicken, and burgers all crowding the space. Here is where most items get a generous layer of their store bought "cajun" seasoning. Average at best: Burritos are more like wraps. The fish was dry/overcooked. My daughter said her burger tasted "sweet" so flavor was off and she couldn't eat it. Coleslaw was not cold so I was afraid to eat that. Atmosphere: Young, hip. Lots of young locals and a few tourists. There is a small amount of seating in a back room that doubles as pantry/storage. Feels like fast food but it takes too long if you don't call in your order. Bottom line: Based on reviews we were excited to try it, but unfortunately we were very disappointed and went to be hungry. If you go maybe try to miss the rush. Perhaps that would produce a better result.More

My family and I stopped here for lunch after hiking Diamond Head. We were amazed at how good EVERY dish tasted! On our last day on Oahu my family voted to go back to South Shore Grill for our final meal. We din't realize we...could actually walk there from Waikiki. It is just 1/2 a mile past Waikiki beach. This is already one of the places we miss most after leaving Oahu.More

I don't know. They are known for their fish tacos and sandwiches but I don't know if they offer gluten-free options. Sorry.
