This is a diamond in the rough. From the outside, it looks a little rough; a complete hole in the wall. But, inside its cozy and the food is amazing! We had Dynamite Shrimp, then the famous S.O.S. It was one of the best seafood...More

Just out of the crush of the Wakiki beachfront, this obscure looking place has fantastic food, drinks and service. Very unique dishes and the heart annotated items (1 or 2 hearts for "favorites" or "must try") are dead on. You will love this place!!

Uncle Bo's is a family-owned and operated jewel on Kapahulu Ave in Waikiki near the zoo. It is an unpretentious restaurant that would go unnoticed driving by, but definitely worth stopping! In fact, though well-known are welcome, it is recommended to make reservations a couple...More

I had my retirement party there on June 30th. They went out of their way to accommodate 40 of us as for the seating, menu and time period. Sean, manager, made sure that all of our needs were answered. Our party was scheduled from 5pm-630pm,...More

Tons of items to choose from on the menu. The portions are plenty. The front room is a cool atmosphere however the back feels like you in a warehouse having dinner. The food was OK but not amazing. The place was fine and reasonably priced...More

We have been going here when in town for about 7 years now. The food and atmosphere are always consistent . We mostly stick with the Pupu's. The Firecracker Shrimp, Boca Rota, Kalua Pig Sliders, and the Potstickers are our favorites. The staff is always...More

We made one and glad we did. It was very busy. Don't think we would've gotten in without one.

I didn't notice loud music. They have 2 separate dining areas. The area in the back of the restaurant seemed more secluded. We sat in the front and the seating was very close so you find yourself in conversation with the... More
