and is best known for their "grill-your-own-dinner" concept by the beach.
So you get to enjoy all the fun of grilling while they take care of all the prep and clean-up for you.
Over the past years, many famous celebrities has stopped by for a visit.
Sadly the owners have decided to retire the restaurant at the end of next month
when their lease is up (September 2017).
Which means you still have time to visit until then.
You definitely can't beat the atmosphere.
Once you step foot inside, you feel like you've been transported back in time
along with their captivating views (which I say is probably one of the very best on the island).
The ocean water washes almost all the way up by the restaurant.
You really can't get closer to the beach than this.
We opted for their breakfast buffet to see how it compares with the buffet at Duke's Waikiki
since they are both located inside Outrigger Hotels (but completely different locations).
Their buffet breakfast is no frills but you can eat as much as you want to get your money's worth.
Aside from the carving station, everything (including drinks such as hot chocolate, juices, tea, and water)
is self-served after you are shown to your table.
For $16.95 per person (before tax), it's cheaper than ordering
a Continental breakfast plate from room service.
[Full disclosure]- The restaurant gave us 50% off one of our meals once they realized we were locals.
Reality sets in as it feels like another historic part of Oahu will soon be gone.
