We stopped by here after our hike to Pololu Valley. It's informal with screen doors and a small menu. I tried the Hawaiian sandwich; it wasn't good. The peppers and onions tasted burnt instead of caramelized and I struggled to find the pineapple in it. It was dripping with so much grease, that I had to eat it with a... More

Stopped by for lunch while coming back from Keokea Beach. My wife and I had a great Mahi Mahi Burger. I liked the inside decor. Easy parking.

We stopped in for a quick lunch before our ATV tour. The staff was friendly, interested in us, and happy to tell us other fun things to do in the area. The food was great, and plenty enough for lunch. After the ATV tour we came back for ice cream!

Stopped in for lunch. It is across the street from King Kamehameha's statue. We had the mahi-mahi both grilled and in a sandwich. Both were delicious did not break the bank. Dine inside or out. Make sure you have some ice cream for dessert!

This is a very casual restaurant across the street from the famous statue of Kamehameha I. They serve pizza and sandwiches and more. I had the artichoke pizza. Great! All four of us enjoyed our choices and we were happy to be able to eat outside. A local had recommended this restaurant to us. The staff are very friendly and... More

I drive a long way just to have their Chicken Pesto pizza. All of their pizzas are good but the Chicken Pesto is my favorite. Relaxed comfortable atmosphere and you get to look at the big statue of King Kamehameha across the street while you have your pizza.

Was cruising around during the area on my birthday. Heard good things from friends about their pizza. Had the artichoke, rosemary, gorgonzola cheese pizza and it was delightful

We came this way to see the Kings Statue. It was lunch time so we tried this place which is just across the street. Very clean well done dining room. You order up front. Our group of four all order something different and everyone was happy with there meal. Try this place you won't be disappointed.

Thank Frank P
