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.

We took a short Uber based on a recommendation from some locals. The outside isn’t 5 star but the food and service is 5 star. Do yourself a favor forget the hotel bars and restaurants and try this place. The bartender John made us feel...so welcome. The food was amazing. You might need reservations because everyone in Waikiki knows this place and it’s often packed. We lucked out with two seats at the bar. Enjoyed the catch of the day which is served three different ways. For me it has to be great taste plus excellent presentation and Uncle Bo’s earned five stars on both. John the bartender is a former Boston guy so the drinks are strong. Uber or taxi is recommended. My wife had wine and was pleasantly pleased with the selection. Lots of families so even teenagers seemed pleased with the food.More

Unassuming place but surprisingly elegant meal! The fresh catch was Monchong and it was amazing! We both ordered it...one grilled, one baked and relished every bite... we couldn't believe the flavor and texture...cooked perfectly! Service was friendly and excellent as well. We were too full...for dessert but hopefully next time.More

We found Uncle Bo’s on a rainy night when restaurants had closed their open-air dining options, and we were very happy we did. Service was excellent, and we really enjoyed our reasonably-priced dinner of pupus and salad. The ample portions of Dynamite Shrimp and Kalua...Pig fried rice were delicious and filling, and the Bourbon-Ginger Lemonade cocktail was a pleasant surprise. Not fancy, but definitely worth a visit!More

The food was ok. The dynamite shrimp was bland and the poke bowl was drowned in chili sauce. It was nearly $200 for 4 people. Not worth it.

A hotel waitress recommended this place to us as the best food in town and it didn’t disappoint. The Boca Rota appetizer is a must try even if you don’t try anything else. It’s so good we went two days in a row during our...short trip. Food is well prepared and quickly served. Try this place out if you’re looking for a good meal!More

We liked this place so much we came back twice in a week for dinner. With all the Waikiki options that says enough. The fried rice in the hot bowl was AMAZING. Shrimp appetizer and pizza all good. Don't judge a book by its cover-...just head in and be spoiled by the drinks and food. Bartender is seriously talented also.More

This was our 5th visit to Uncle Bo’s over the last few years. Once again the service, the food and the atmosphere did not disappoint! We sat at the bar catching up with John the bartender of 10 plus years! We had the Caprese Toasts...on Hawaiian Rolls. So good. We shared the Greasy Noodles. And then we finished with a Pepperoni and Pineapple Pizza. We took our time and had a few drinks at n between plates! You need to check this place out. They open at 5 PM. Just a 5 minute Uber from Waikiki. You know it’s a special place when you see the same staff and managers over the years! PS The Dynamite Shrimp is awesome. We didn’t have it this time. They even make a Dynamite Shrimp Pizza!More

The place looked closed from the outside but we had a reservation and discovered it was already full once inside. Great food- especially the pasta. And nice cocktails. Would definitely go again.

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of our uber drivers and a tour guide. We were not disappointed! The staff were excellent and great at recommending dishes. The drinks menu was good and catered for all tastes. The food was cooked perfectly and...came out quickly. All the dishes we choose were great. It was reasonably priced and the service was great. It's the perfect place to visit if you want to get away from the main tourist strip and have an authentic Hawaiian meal.More

The other direction is wrong. Uncle Bo’s is on Kapahulu. On the road closest to the beach - Kalakaua - go toward Diamond Head, but turn left BEFORE the zoo. That’s Kapahulu and quite a distance up the road, on the right... More

As I recall, the kitchen closed at 9:00, but that was in December. Could be open later now.
