Food was good; nice variety of menu choices. Our server was pleasant and efficient. One suggestion: we happened to arrive during happy hour. It would have been nice had she checked in with us before happy hour ended. My husband wanted to order another cocktail. By the time she came by and submitted the order, it was three minutes late and they did not honor the happy hour price.

No issues...food was good and service personnel were attentive. Almost the exact same menu as its sister restaurant....CJ’s at Hilton. More menu creativity would make it an even better experience

Our server Jamie was the best thing about this meal. She was very sweet and attentive—great job. Otherwise, the food was just ok. It wasn’t very hot, and the avocado and basil were brown as if they’d been sitting out for a while. The ambiance is very, very sports-focused, if you are into that. Not as good as hoped, given the menu, which looked great. Overall, just “fine”.

AMAZING. We had a party of 5. We were seated promptly and had the waitress taking our drink order in minutes. The food was absolutely spectacular. We have 5 different meals, burger, pasta, sandwiches, and a personal pizza and we were all thrilled with our meals. This restaurant is fantastic all around.

Didnt have macadamia nut pancakes that were on menu because price of macadamia was too high but offered it on triple play but wouldnt be a lot of macadamia. We left as the macadamia nut pancakes were the reason we came. Dissapointed

We were very happy to find all the options and creative dishes on the menu. Food was excellent as was the atmosphere along with all the sporting events on the big screen TVs. We liked our meal so much we came back a few days later with equal satisfaction. Highly recommend this place.

I went here before and I loved the coconut french toast. But we were here last night for lunch and our appetizers were way too salty. We ordered the fried calamari and chicken wings. We didn’t complain although our server Kelsey was very nice.

This is a small sports bar that has a lengthy food menu that offers breakfast lunch and dinner.
The food had good flavor and the service was also good. Our server Nancy was very friendly and recommended the “triple play” menu option. It has a small loco moco, a small macadamia coconut pancake stack and a small egg Benedict. It was very tasty and was the right amount of food for me!
The Happy Hour menu is diverse and is a little less expensive than the regular menu.

This is one of our go to spots for pupus and drinks with friends. Food is always good and fresh, and the lychee martinis were exceptionally good on this visit. Sadly the margarita that my husband ordered was a little sour for his taste. Even tho it wasn’t crowded at all (made 3p reservations), it took awhile for our drinks and food to come. The food is always great, pastrami sliders are always a hit, as well as the pastrami fries. I enjoyed the calamari and sweet potato fries.
The servers were very polite and friendly. We’ll definitely be coming back again.

Family friendly dining in good location. Pizzas are good and sandwiches are good. The pasta was horrible though. Tasted of raw garlic. Caesar salad only tasted of garlic as well. Greek salad only had three slices of tomato and was mostly all lettuce.

ガーリックシュリンプが美味しいです。トリプルプレイのロコモコのハンバーグは少し固かった。エッグベネディクトも半熟では無かった。ハワイでは仕方がない事だと思いますが白米は美味しくないです。ビールジョッキは20ドルと安いです。

We dined here as an extended family of 10. The service was great! Our waiter was very attentive. We chose this restaurant because it was more casual and had a menu with lots of options. We dined on salads, pizza, burgers and chicken. We were able to have family conversation and watch 3 different sports on tv. This was my nephew’s favorite place we dined in Waikiki.

We are local regulars and enjoy walking through Waikiki and stopping at Giovanni's for food and beer. Food and service is top notch and consistent. Sometimes we can't get in during popular sports events but that's okay. We are not sports fanatics so we'll only go in when there is no waiting for a table.
