A word from Don the Beachcomber
Enjoy fresh seafood, tender steaks, famous burgers, huge salads and over a dozen Pupu's (appetizers) with an Island Inspired Flare and an eye toward value without sacrificing quality. Quite simply put, the food is great!! Don the Beachcomber will take you back to Polynesia in a heavy Tiki themed dining room and banquet rooms complete with waterfalls reminiscent of vintage Hawaii. The bartenders at Don's Dagger Bar will craft some of the most delicious and creative (and original!) of Don's tropical cocktails! Banquet facilities and for 20 to over 200 in a fun and unique tropical setting with plenty of free parking. While the average cost of our steak and seafood offerings with a drink and tip range from $31 to $50 we also offer a selection of entree sized salads, and three burger sandwiches featuring prime beef, broiled chicken, or Kalua pork for $12 to $14 per item.

Diner Reviews
  • "Delicious food, great service and The best was the band, High Times!!!"

  • "You'll notice the colorful theme as soon as you walk in. There is plenty of parking also. We had reservations on a Monday night at 5:00 and stayed for little over an hour. Maybe there were two other parties by then. I had their Orange Roughy which was very delicious. My husband had the Mahi which he said was OK. On Monday the restaurant hosts an extended happy hour from 3 to closing. One may have discounted drinks and food in the bar or order from the dinner menu as well. There is an extensive drink menu as the founder was known for all the drinks he invented. The drinks are numbered by potency. My Rum Barrel was a 4, while the Zombie was a 10. Definitely decide ahead of time who will be the designated driver or call for a taxi. Fun place."

  • "I've been wishing I could return to Hawaii...miss the warm sun, tropical breezes...and the food ! Coming to Don the Beachcomber in Huntington Beach took me back to those happy times. The food and the atmosphere were very Hawaiian! Thank you D the B for the awesome experience."

  • "Excellent service and a really cool atmosphere. 2 different bars for different experiences as well as a nice dining room. When we were there, it was karaoke in one bar and a great reggae band in the big bar. We had dinner in the dinning room then went between the 2 bars to check them out. OK so on to the good stuff... The FOOD!!! I have been to Hawaiian restaurants before, but the food was great in comparison! We had just about every appetizer on the menu and there was nothing that was not good. Sliders, Sticky Ribs, calamari (not rings, but calamari steak strips!), PuPus, Ahi Poke Tacos, and Co-Co-Nut Shrimp. All Excellent! Pulled Kalua Pork for dinner and it was great. So Food EXCELENT!! Rum Drink Menu was a cool experience. RECOMMENDED!"

  • "Had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner, the whole evening was fabulous! This place is an institution and one of the best examples of the 40's and 50's Polynesian experience anywhere. Had a drink in about the coolest Tiki Bar I've ever experienced. Dinner was great, (Ahi Poke & Huli Huli Chicken... Wonderful!) During dinner, there were Hawaiian musicians and Hula Dancers in the dining room for the Valentine's dinner crowd. We had a fun, nostalgic South Seas dinner experience right here in Orange County, and a truly enjoyable evening!"

  • "Having read postings about live entertainment, I decided to give it a shot. Well, there was a homeless looking man in an ill-fitting aloha shirt carrying around a bottle of beer who sat down at his steel guitar and started playing. He played well, but a sad sight to see. There was a function going on in the bar/lounge and the DJ could be heard over this musician's music. For appetizers, the ahi poke came out first, then steamed clams a good 15 minutes later. The entrees came out 1 minute after the clams, so now our entrees would sit getting cold. Kahlua pork was dry, ribeye was rare when I ordered medium. To apologize, server offered free dessert- pineapple cake, which was dry. Never going again! No wonder they closed the other locations..."

  • "Met some family members here for Christmas dinner. The service was very friendly, but a little slow. We were given the special holiday menu when we arrived, but weren't told you could also order off the regular menu. We saw others doing that and had to ask about it. The drinks were good and strong, just right for a tiki bar! The food was also very good. My companions had the mahi-mahi which came with krispy kale and raved about it. I had the surf/turf, which was also delicious. All in all a good experience. I want to visit the bar for some of their shows and more of those drinks!"

  • "Been here before and has good experiences. However on Christmas they were extremely understaffed which shows lack of planning and or management. Even though the staff worked very hard and did the best they could due to bad management for Christmas the service was very bad and slow. The vegetable were also under cooked; hey were raw. Again the staff did the best they could but they could not offset the bad management I will not go back next Christmas and any holiday for it is clear management cannot handle it"

  • "Nice quiet place. Feels like you are in Hawaii. I had the Mahi Mahi and it was kinda greasy and bland. Kinda pricey for the quality. Would come back for specials or happy hour on weekends if we are in the area."

  • "The food was great, the mai tai was interesting...the bar had karaoke going on which was distracting at times if the singer hit the wrong note...lol."
