A word from Shore Bird Restaurant & Beach Bar
For the past 29 years, Island residents and tourists alike have flocked to the Shore Bird, making it one of Waikiki's most venerated institutions. It's the thrill of the grill that has captured guests imaginations and appetites for more than two decades. Shore Bird is not just a place to eat. Shore Bird is an experience where all guests have a lot of fun! Servers interact with our guests and not just serve them. The over all concept is "Aloha". Guests are responsible for for grilling their own dinner entrees but they don't have to be master barbecurers. An experienced grill hand and a large clock help make the process easy. Here's how it works: Steaks and seafood come to the table fresh on a platter with instructions. Guest are able to season and then prepare their entree exactly to their liking . All entrees include the salad bar, which showcases more than 25 items, such as fresh greens, garnishes, fruits, tako poke, rice, bread and pasta.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We were able to request an ocean side table which was practically on the ocean. You can't beat the location. The food was as expected, decent quality. The service was good, however the entire flow was confusing. You ordered and they brought you the food to cook immediately, without giving you a chance to go to the salad bar (average) and without explaining how it all works. The food was good because we cooked it. The best part of this restaurant is the location."

  • "I grew up in Hawaii and have many fond memories of the Shore Bird. Must have eaten there over a dozen times. On a recent trip I thought I would bring my sons and show them the restaurant. I made reservations a week in advance and asked for a table near the water. When we arrived we were told we'd would need to wait 40 minutes for a beach side table, despite the fact that there were 7 open tables next to the water. Instead, they seated us in the very back corner if the restaurant, in an area where there was not even a glimpse of the ocean. Maybe they save those beach side tables for people who reserve directly? Doesn't seem fair. I was so disappointed not to be able to give my kids the fun ocean view dining. Won't ever go back again."

  • "Requested a beach table weeks before and was put near B- b-Que, on reservation we said it was a birthday, waitress asked whose birthday it was then didn't follow thru with any birthday song or dessert like at other tables. Salad bar was food, the fish, steak was good. We go there once a month, so they recognize us, but the service is their weakest area and they don't care because it is always packed, being on the beach at Waikiki. It won't stop us from coming, but soon Waikiki Shores next door will be opening restaurants up on the beach and they will have a little competition."

  • "すぐ目の前がビーチで、波打ち際までの距離が短いから海が間近に感じ、心地良く食事が楽しめて素敵でした!自分でお肉を焼くのも楽しかったし、ビュッフェスタイルのサラダも良かったです。お肉もサラダも美味しくいただけました。6月27日(金)18時からの予約でしたが、時間通り到着後すぐに案内してくれました。総合的に大満足です。"

  • "We had eaten at Shoe bird sixteen years and loved it! It was even better this time. The atmosphere and view is great. We are not overbearing people so we loved cooking our own steaks and making trips to the salad bar Would go back every week if I could. Also reasonably priced."

  • "Steak and mahi mahi were fantastic and easy to cook- teriyaki chicken was good. Salad bar selection was excellent- loved the mushroom-quinoa risotto! Fun to grill our own food- kids thought it was a blast. Great ocean-front table. Only negative was a loud, obnoxious guy at the nearby bar- would be nice if they could place the bar a bit farther from the dinner tables."

  • "We were here before for lunch so we decided to make a reservation for father's day; well we order from the menu and then after 15 minutes here come this other server with a plate of raw steaks and chicken, they explain us then that we have to cook it but that a chef will help us, long story short no one helped us! ...i feel so bad for my husband that we took him to a restaurant and he ended up bbq'ing like we could have done at home with better taste! Not a fun experience getting out of the restaurant smelling like charcoal! To expensive if you have to do it yourself!"

  • "Went to Shore Birds to celebrate Father's Day. My son and I had the buffet lunch that consisteted of a salad bar, cheese & crackers, chili, rice, pit roast, and ginger coconut fish. The food was pretty good. Service was just fair as once the waiter took our order we didn't see him again for 20 minutes when he brought out my wife's hambuger. I asked for silverware and the server forgot. I had to go find silverware on my own. We usually have much better service at Shorebirds. Mai Tai's were average...nothing special."

  • "Would not recommend this at all. Small buffet mostly startches."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This is an interesting restaurant where the dining experience is not based on the taste of the food but the cooking of the food. The salad bar (comes with the meal) is big and fresh. You pick your protein and then cook it yourself at a big open grill. The steaks are good but nothing spectacular so again this is about the camaraderie of cooking your food together - enjoy it!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We have enjoyed your brunch several times and is a good value My husband and I were diappointed with lunch. Not enough green salad ingrediantes, too many pasta dishes, carrots too big, no chicken and beverages not included. The fruit salad, fish and cold slaw were delicious. There is no comparison between brunch and lunch."

  • "ワイキキビーチの海風を感じながら、上質な肉や魚を焼き、ビールやワインで気持ちよく酔いしれる。 ハワイのリゾートを満喫できる素晴しいレストランのひとつといえます。 今回で3回目となりましたが、ハワイを訪れるたびに一度は寄りたい店です。 それとスタッフが笑顔を絶やさず、気持ちよい対応で、毎回感心させられます。"

  • "This was our second time eating here. Our first time was 4 years ago and we loved it then and loved it now. One of our favorite restaurants on Waikiki Beach. We loved the atmosphere so much that we came back every night to sit at the bar and have drinks. Our favorite is steak and lobster and it is well worth the price. They have lots of options for food and it is so much fun to cook it yourself on the open grill. You can even grill fresh pineapple from the salad bar, which is quite extensive and very good too."

  • "I love going to this restaurant because the atmosphere is unbeatable. Relaxed, oceanfront dining, on Waikiki Beach. The food is good, but not outstanding. They have you grill your own meat which my husband felt like we should've been charged less since he cooked his own food. I still like it nonetheless."

  • "Great fun and great food. Too bad there are not more sides available."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This was our first time here. The views are great, the food was really good and affordable. The only caveat is that you cook your own meat, which is really weird to me, plus the grill area is really hot so if the humidity and temp. is high, then you will really sweat. We had the sunset special, steak and salad bar for $18.95. The salad bar alone is not worth $16.95. Our waitress Lisa took very good care of us."

  • "We were early for lunch, so we had a drink at the bar ($3.50 mai-tais from noon until 5:00). To our pleasant surprise, when we closed out the bar tab, we got a coupon on the receipt to get a discount on our lunch -- score. The view is great and the quality of the food is comparable to that of some of the other hotel restaurants, but considerably less expensive. Ditch the Hilton Hawaiian Village and come here, instead."

  • "We always eat at Shore Bird once every time we visit Honolulu. You simply can't beat the location, the ambience and the overall experience. That being said, the food is nothing amazing. Steaks are OK, but can be hit or miss with the cut. The salad bar is fresh, but that's about it- nothing great, not much variety, etc. Our most recent visit had less than great service. Our waitress was friendly, but she was MIA for 99% of the meal- no refills, no checking in on us, no bringing the bill without our flagging her down...Be sure to find a 1/2 off coupon before you go! They're always online if you can't find one in the books!"

  • "Did not realize I would be cooking my own meal and that of my wife and niece. Setting, on the water, was beautiful but standing in front of a very hot grill for 25 minutes cooking three entrees was a huge mistake- hot, smokey an very uncomfortable by the time I sat down to try and enjoy a very average steak. Salad bar was not bad. I would never go back to this place or recommend."
