About Permanently Closed - Shore Bird Restaurant & Beach Bar

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

What a fun evening. Something very different.
Such a shame it closed as the couple retired after many many years.
Will be relaunched on 16th Oct.
Let's hope it is just as good.

6年ぶりに行きました。今月で閉店と聞いていたので残念ですが、店員の方々は明るくメインのステーキもボリュームが丁度良く、サイドディッシュも食べれる分だけ取れるので、体にも財布にも優しい素晴らしいレストランです。ワイキキの何処かで再開してほしい。

The Shorebird has been a favorite of mine for years. I've brought friends and family from parts of the globe for an enjoyable dinner. The reason for this outing is that the Shorebird is closing down in a couple of weeks. Very sad to see it go.

When I made a reservation, I wrote that we are coming for my friends' wedding anniversary & their kid's birthday party. It was a special occasion. But the restaurant did not gave us a cake or anything- the next table got a birthday cake. The server was good but did not get the message from the Open Table reservation. We do love this restaurant, but they should have better communication. I was a little disappointed.

If you want an overpriced piece of meat that you get to cook yourself with a lackluster "salad bar" in a smoke filled room, eat here. There was no one to assist at the grill and I felt sorry for those who are not used to grilling their own meat. I will say that the piece of steak I got was very fresh, albeit small. They are closing at the end of the month I hear.

Shore Bird has been a go to restaurant for us every year when we come to Hawaii. After our most recent dining experience,we may need to reconsider. It is a cook your own place but the cooking instruction given by our waitress would have produce a dry inedible fish the salad bar was not being regularly replenished. The smoke at the grill where other customers were literally burning their protein. Water glasses were not kept filled. Overall, compared to past visits, this was disappointing.

自分でメイン料理をグリルで焼くスタイルです。
座席がグリルの近くであったので風向きで煙りがモウモウとし、目にしみ霞んで見えました。こんな目に遭ってまで食事をしたいとは思いませんでしたが、ワイキキで手軽にBBQができるのもここぐらいなので我慢です。大人数で席を予約してしまったため移動もしませんでした。
食事はサラダバー含めgoodです。

I went there last week with my husband and my son as my 2nd time. Several years ago, my husband and my son went there when they went to Hawaii. They said it was great and they loved it a lot. So, when we, three, went to Hawai 3 years ago, we went to there. It was great. We can grill our meat by ourselves as we like on the open griddle. We can enjoy the food and in the same time, we can enjoy grilling as we can pour different kind of salts. In happy hour, they have special menu and it is worth to try. I highly recommend Shore bird!
