This is a true food experience. If your only sampling of Poke has been on the mainland (as was mine), then unfortunately you don’t know Poke. Fresh catch takes the cleanest ahi, salmon and octopus and transforms them into an amalgam of seasonings, sauce, and impeccably fresh fish that will leave you weeping with bliss. Truly, I had to have a moment of prayer upon the first bite of the creamy wasabi ahi. The puleho tako is octopus that is smoked, then flash fried to add the most delicate bark and then chopped into tender, savory morsels. If you bring your mother here, sit her at a table away from yours because this food will compel you, without warning, to slap her (maybe that’s what they mean by umami). Get the bowl that comes with two mounds of rice and a half pound of your choice of Poke. Order a quarter pound of the puleho tako on the side as it is very rich in both flavor and cost- $30 a pound. I didn’t try the fish tacos or fried fresh fish but saw others – who like me, visibly haven’t missed a meal – raving about the quality of their dinners. Fresh catch is extremely casual, chill, and service is at the counter, then seat yourself. It is worth the half hour drive from Honolulu and most certainly makes for a destination if doing a coast drive from the north shore.

Mon thru Sun, fresh as fresh can be. Be sure to check out the daily specials, fish tacos are onolicious. Friendly service and clean environment. Easy to find, if you blink you'll miss the driveway...

Pulling up to this place I was concerned that it was more of a chain restaurant judging from the outside but when we opened the door we knew we were in the right place. Humble dining room with kitschy decor, huge sparkly blue vinyl booths and the place was packed! I ordered a real crab sandwich and my hubby got some poke. The person at the counter was super helpful in letting him taste all the poke varieties before making his order. Loved what we had, would definitely recommend if you're in the area!

We stumbled upon this place and had to stop in because we're huge Guy Fieri fans and he did a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives episode here. What a gem this place is. So many different flavors of Poke we didn't know what to get. The owner gave us many samples to help us choose and was so patient with us (we were taking a long time!). It was the best Poke we had on our whole vacation. They really treat their customers right!

What a find! Local style fresh poke and oversized fresh fish sandwiches! Very friendly staff will take care of your hunger. This is the real deal when it comes to good seafood. Try the ahi belly sandwich for a real treat!
