Always enjoy my monthly visit to Aloha Beer to support not just the restaurant but my good friend Zaysha who sings every 2nd Friday. Service is always on point too. Max is definitely a manager I’d work with. He jumps in to help his crew and does what ever needs to get done. He’s not one of those “stand around and point fingers” kinda managers. The staff always seems happy which makes for a great service experience. Uh I forget our servers name Jaylyn(sry girl I forgot your name) but she was on point! Anyway food is great not too keen on the pretzel but the chicken karaage, nachos, & Donuts & Nutella “broke da mout” Ohhh last but not least Derek will take good care of your car at the valet.

My[daughter and I had the Pork Chop and it was tender and delicious - ate the whole thing. The car was taken care of and we were fitted at a great location. My wife had the Short rib and she enjoyed it as well as the Okinawan sweet potato. My son had the onion soup and calamari which he enjoyed as well. The Tom Collins and Manhattan were enjoyable. It sprinkled a little bit but it was fine sitting under the cover for the tables. Kawika Kahiapo and his group were fantastic and his invitation to have hula dancers in the audience to come up to dance enhanced the music to another level. Kawika's banter was very personal and his knowledge of Hawaiian music was entertaining. The overall experience was greater than I had anticipated and am looking forward to going there again.
