    This was my favorite item in this restaurant for a long time, but the last couple of times I was there and ordered the soup, it was not as good as I remembered. The soup is kind of watery and lack the beef flavor... kind of disappointed. Still the best value in town for lunch though.

    We normally go there as a couple and enjoy the prime rib. But this time, we celebrated my daughter's 11th bday. Took advantage of the October Saturday's Happy Hour! So, we sat in the lounge, top floor to the right side. Had the best seats (I feel) in the restaurant for a group of 10 people! We ordered a variety of appetizers, played some table games then ordered dinner. We didn't have to move the party to the dining room as planned, so that was a plus! The food and service were great, like always! The hostess and waitress were both so friendly and patient! Will return again...

    Had a really great time there with a window table where we could see the sunset. The food was terrific, we had the salmon special of the day and a prime rib. The blueberry cobbler for desert was awesome! And all this for free since I had a dinning credit for Kincaids/Ryans from their dining program.

The food was truly delicious, service was excellent and it was just a wonderful experience to come back to Kincaid's.

    Although it was lunchtime on a weekend, I made last minute reservations for 2, great choice! Arrived early, no problem, the staff and atmosphere inside the place was so relaxed. As often happens, we ran into friends there. The food was perfect as usual, and Judy was warm, friendly, and attentive. This is our go-to spot for dinner, suspect it will be the same for lunches in the future!

    We have been going to Kincaid's for many years. They've renovated the inside making it brighter and giving it a modern feel versus the steakhouse ambiance it once had. Check in was easy and friendly. There were the usual specials listed on the menu and they all look great. I really enjoy their clam chowder. It's not too thick like some other places. Plus, it's served very hot which I also enjoy. My friend had the trio and while it was nicely prepared, he mentioned that the steak was not the best. I had the opah which was outstanding. Our server was attentive and professional. She was so friendly. Although the cocktails are on the expensive side, we will most certainly be back. Be prepared to drop some money on this place.

    We enjoyed our after-movie dinner on Saturday. The restaurant is convenient to the Ward Theaters, and we have enjoyed dining here on many occasions. This dinner was our typical experience of good food and service, with prompt seating for our 6:45 pm reservation. We took advantage of a free garlic shrimp appetizer via their restaurant card special...free membership gets you dining points that can be redeemed for gift cards!

    I have had lunch several times at Kincaid's and have always found the food and service to be very good. On this visit I had the steak salad and it was probably one of the best steak salads I have ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection and the greens were fresh. My friend and I ended up talking for 2 hours and the staff continued to refill our tea and water. Very pleasant experience.

    I had not seen my older relatives in 30+ years and wanted to meet, eat and chat in a pleasant setting with great tasting sea food that is always super well prepared. Uncle & aunty had never been to Kincaid's and they had not had Opah before - they loved the food and the eatery, though we had no room for your wonderful desserts, sigh.

    As soon as I got the email giving me money on my card for my birthday I told my husband I wanted to go. The food was great as usual and the waitress terrific. When she found out my birthday was this month and that I would be in California she insisted on bringing me a birthday small creme brûlée. That's why I love Kincaid's. Always treated great and good food as well. Hope all the new building in that area doesn't affect it. It's one of my faves.

    My friend and I went to Kincaid's for my birthday, and I was happy to catch the happy hour menu. However, the happy hour menu was not available on the dining room side, where our table was reserved, so that was a bit annoying that we had to move to the bar side. Thankfully we could order from the full menu there or I would have been more upset. The happy hour menu had some great drinks, which I got a couple of, and those were great. However, I always feel disappointed that this restaurant does not cater very well to vegetarians, so I find myself always ordering the same salad every time I eat here. It would be nice if they would at least change the menu up a little, because the drinks shouldn't be the best part of the meal.

    Kicaid's, always one of my favorites. My wife and I stop in maybe every other month and always on special occasions. For the past couple years we've did our anniversary there. Recently we did lunch there for our anniversary. As always, it was pleasant, beautiful view, not too crowded, not noisy, and awesome service. I was only disappointed with my appetizer...the lobster bisque. All the previous times we came, this was the highlight and surely keeps us coming back. This time, I was forcing a few spoonfuls down just because I felt bad for throwing it away. My wife still ate hers, but the first thing she said was..."its not like it use to be". I agreed as I pushed the bowl to the side. Hope it gets back to how it was. Great fish!

    I ordered their prime rib medium rare, it came out blood red. Had to send it back. They must have popped it in a microwave, so the end result was a rubbery tasteless blob. Appetizers, soup, desserts were EXCELLENT. Party of 8 were close by which caused the noise level to rise considerably, party of 5 next to us came straight from the beach, hard to enjoy a romantic evening in a sports bar environment. Waiter Josh was FANTASTIC, articulate, caring, gave us space. Was there when we needed something but never intrusive.

    Two of us were dining on Wed. evening Aug. 20. It was prime rib Wed. The prime rib was not anything to rave about, it was tough and chewy, but it was nice to just be out. What really made the evening was our server, Julie ?(Blond and friendly and perceptive). She really is an excellent server with just enough friendliness and professionalism. We would be back, but maybe not for prime rib. But, must admit that the promotion appeared to be successful as far as getting Oahu out to dine.
