It was okay. Not the best and not the worst. Service wasn’t slow.
Poki tower, Uncle’s combo plate, crab and avocado salad, Japanese cheese cake
Great social distancing measure taken. Slow service...had to wait a while to ask for chopsticks and then ask for a new one when we were only give one side of a pair of chopsticks
So different scene from where they used to be. Old location a lot better!
Awesome date night spot.
Food is always fresh and you waitstaff is always accommodating and courteous which brings me back.
Mon Chong was done perfectly!
Our waitress was awesome; very personable and attentive!! The waitstaff worked great together, helping each other and not walking past a table without observing and addressing drink refills, pre-bussing or just passing a smile! The food and beer was fabulous!! Thank you for a great dinner and experience!
Servers are always so friendly. Nice to always have a booth🙂
We’re here from Denver & the fresh fish & chips & poke were delicious!
Came here for Easter, poke was fantastic!!! Food was Soo tasty! Definitely coming back again!!!
Great food ... Recommend the garlic ahi and the crab meat avacado salad.
Professional and friendly staff. The food was fresh and delicious.
Delicious food. Fast and friendly service. Always a winner!
Things to know: this restaurant is in a mall facing the parking lot. The food is priced high, but portions are small and our food was a bit bland. I ordered the ono and it was dry and overcooked. Also, our kids ordered from the kids menu. The kids' meals said they came with a drink. When our kids were order, we asked which drinks were available. All three kids ordered juice and we were charged $5 per juice. When we asked our server, he said the juice wasn't one of the options for included drinks (this would have been nice to know when we placed our order). I wouldn't recommend this place unless it's one of your only options.
Excellent food and service.I had the fresh Ono fish cooked Chinese style with ginger, cilantro, and sesame/soy broth.
Delicious seafood and great service! Staff was very helpful and friendly. Definitely going back!
wonderful place for great service and great food!
Love the awesome food!!
Awesome food and cocktails!! Freshest fish in yummy sauces.
We chose Uncle's Fish Market and Grill in the Pearlridge Wai Makai Center because of it's excellent location and because it offered Outdoor Open Air Seating! The location outside is still private and shaded so you get a pleasant experience similar to dining inside in the fresh air. The service personnel are sometimes hard to find but our waitress was friendly and efficient when she visited us. My friend and I both ordered the Burger special which comes with Fries or Cole Slaw and the burger had everything including, Mushrooms, Cheddar Cheese, Onion Slices, Tomato, Lettuce, Avocado, and BACON! We also had the Ice Tea which was great. Prices are reasonable for a Full Service restaurant in a mall. Parking is free and Uncle's has a full Bar and lots of seats. We will return.
The fish tacos were yummy. I like that I requested a booth and got one! But the best thing was the friendly service. Our server...she was adorable.
The seafood was great. However the pasta taste not feet a wow factor. It’s so so. I do like my appetizer the calamari. This one is recommended.
Terrible food and outdoor seating is basically in a parking garage.
Wonderful layout for seating
They seated us super quick even though we were late. The place was kind of empty but our sever took forever to serve us drinks and food. The food was outstanding :) would def return.
Knowledgeable staff and consistently great fish. You can find more expensive fish restaurants, but you’ll just pay more. Uncle’s is a great value with a nice environment.
The quality of the food is excellent. You can definitely tell the fish is fresh. The value is okay though. Service was great. The staff is very friendly and service was quick.
Easily made reservations to celebrate a retirement. Service and food was excellent! Our server was great and gave good suggestions for specials. Food was delicious and we did not feel rushed to eat & leave. Ample time given to catch up with my friend, who I hadn’t seen in a year due to Covid! Would definitely return again!
Parking is a bit tough in a mall. Service is super friendly and laidback. Food is OK. The selection is quite diverse and plentiful. Fresh, locally caught fish.
First time eating at Uncle’s. Great food & service!
Excellent food and great service. Long time patron from the old pier 38 facility. New place is even better and it’s on the way home. See. You again soon.
Very nice restaurant, great for family meals, tables appropriately distanced. Meal was excellent.
The service was slow and not “complete” no follow up was done in timely matter. I felt when I look back at our experience, that the waitress along with her trainee was trying to get our entire order within the 5 minutes. After our order and before our food came there was no follow up in a timely matter to check on us while we were waiting. The trainee also needs to learn a little more general etiquette-one example is reaching over to place a drink on the inside of the table ( we were in a booth) instead of just placing it near the outside edge.
Food tasted great but was disappointing to see the portions compared to the pricing for a casual restaurant.
I have spent less at a very similar type and style dining and pricing was more affordable and better portions. I gauge it to the similar amount of food and drinks we usually order.
The best part of the experience is the history of Uncles and the fish stories. The hostess was awesome, very aware of her surroundings.
I would have expected better being that they have been in business for awhile
Bad experience with check in hostess at Uncles. My family and I showed up at 4:50 pm, walked in with no reservations and we were told there was no available seating inside, but outside seating was available, mind you it was raining pretty good and all outside seating was drenched. At the time, inside seating was at about 10% capacity and I questioned her on availability and was told they were all reserved. So we decided to pass and have dinner elsewhere. While walking away from the restaurant, i decided to search for available reservations on OpenTable, and I find a 5:15 slot open at the same restaurant that 5 minutes earlier was unable to seat us. We return, at 5:15 and were seated INSIDE no problems. Don't know why the hostess denied us previously but really a bad experience.
Food speaks for itself, fresh off the boat.
The Poke Tower is the best and what I always order
