Side Street Inn Kapahulu
We have been to Side StreetWe have been to Side Street many times, at both locations. It never disappoints. Food is terrific, friendly and casual ambiance and great servers. It is one of my favorite places to bring out of town guests, especially when there is a big group with diverse tastes. The family style service gives an opportunity to try a lot of dishes and not be obligates to get into something that does not suit you. I just wish that we could go often enough to try the things on the menu that are not out standard favorites. The boneless kal-bi is a new favorite.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always very good.The food is always very good. We had to wait approximately 8 minutes before I had to ask if we had a server. Our server was late arriving to work so the server I flagged down was nice enough to take our order. We should not have been seated in a section with no server. I guess that's Hawaiian Time, lol!!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedRestaurant staff is always the friendliest. We even ran into someone coming into work in the parking lot (we didn't realize she was a worker there) and she was just filled with Aloha. Food is practically a no brainer - close your eyes and point at something on the menu and its great! We love bringing friends from the mainland because its such a great representation of local style food.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!The atmosphere was fun, the food so 'ono and customer service very friendly.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMthis place is always good,this place is always good, never disappoints.

Everything is served family-style, so, unless you want A LOT of leftovers, go with a group. Friendly, casual, and good beer. It can get loud, especially if there are big games on the the televisions, but it is worth it.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWish we had Side St in NYWe are from NY and had to come back one more time before leaving. We had to have the lop cheong fried rice again but wanted to try other things. We had the pork chops which we okay. The fried calamari was different large thick pieces that were very tender and delicious. The farmers salad was fantastic, with avocado, shrimp, butter leaf lettuce, capers and fried sweet potato shavings in a scrmptuous light dressing. The ahi poke was tasty and fresh. The ahi belly was new for us- very different and good. Everything was great, service, ambiance, food- but you have to make reservation..

It gets to be noisy at times, but it is a friendly atmosphere. It is great for a get together !!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy calabash German niece andMy calabash German niece and her husband missed going to Side Street last year when they were here, so I promised them a visit this year. They are a beautiful couple with a passionate love of Hawaii, especially for its food and, of course, the sun, sand and surfing.
They loved the garlic fries, the Caesar salad, the boneless kalbi, the pork chops, the fried rice, and the ribeye with mushrooms and onions. I think Mory liked that the best. They liked the Rogue Pie, but I didn't care for it. There was something wrong with the combination of flavors for me and I definitely did not like the garlic bread. When I had it at the Ala Moana location, it was garlicky, thicker, and fluffier with a really nice crunch when you bit into it.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to come back!This was my 2nd visit to this restaurant with a large group of people, and as I did the first time, I pre-ordered our food. Timing was perfect! As soon as we got seated, our drink order was taken and within minutes, our drinks and appetizers were delivered. And one dish came after another. EVERYTHING was delicious--escargot, chicken gizzards, boneless kalbi, pork chops, steamed kampachi, spicy garlic chicken, lilikoi ribs. And the dessert--especially the molten chocolate cake! And we had the BEST SERVER! He was right on with the drinks, food--we never had to ask for anything! And it's not like he didn't have other tables--he was BUSY! Consistency is very important and that makes me definitely want to return.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local grinds in a familialGreat local grinds in a familial neighborhood setting.
