Seen some reviews prior to coming out to Oahu and all said that it was a great place to meet the locals and have a good time. The reviews were not wrong, what a place, beer specials every night, taco tuesday (a dollar a taco) and great company what more could you want. As tourists we were made very welcome... More

Good local bar, decent priced drinks. Local place, i enjoyed but might not be for every one if you are looking for fancy it might not be for you. Pool table available, food not available every day.

We stayed next door at the white sand hotel so thought we would have a drink at the Honolulu tavern and in the day we visited it was taco Tuesday and for $1.00 tacos and $4 Caronas it was amazing value and these were the best tacos I have had. Staff was really lovely and welcoming

My wife and I on a short trip to Honolulu from Maui stopped here after a long day in the city. They have reasonably priced beer, great music, great service, and good conversation with all the friendly patrons at the bar. If you are looking for a dive bar, this is your place!

This bar is tiny and full of locals. It's refreshing to come into after a day shopping or beaching or anything. Dana and Buddy, the two barmen we met were great! Do yourself a favor!

This lovely little hole in the wall, is a great place to get your drink on. Ever so slightly seedy, but always a great time. Never judge a book by it's cover!

This place is a dive bar. No other way to describe it. Locals hangout. Great chicken tacos for $1.00 on Tuesdays. We were there two Tuesdays just for those.

This is off the tourist path. A dive bar in the best possible sense. Drinks are strong and cheap. We were welcomed like old friends. Exceptional service from Summer and Kitty. We were lucky and were there for a filming of Hawaii 5-0. Quite the experience. Went back several times.
