Umekes has the best poke we've ever had. The spicy and the avo were our favorites, but they have many to choose from. My favorite dish was the teriyaki chicken bowl with mac salad and poke on the side. The shop is small and the...More

We went here in the recommendation of our kayaking guide. My husband got the avocado kind, which was very good. I’m not a seafood eater and got the beef teriyaki bowl, which left something to be desired. It is also very hole in the wall...More

Stopped over for a couple of lunch bowls and enjoyed the poke, beer, and outdoor seating. Be forewarned, a couple of bowls could put a dent in your pocket (about $32 for the two of us), but it is fresh and delicious and worth it).

Friendly service and delicious, generously sized poke bowls at a very reasonable price. There's not much space to eat but this is a great place to pick up a bowl to go!
