We tried 2 different salads and both were excellent. Lobster Mac & Cheese was good but not exceptional - could have used some more lobster. It's there regular Mac & Cheese with a lobster topping. Plenty more items on the menu to try, since this was a 1st visit. Looking forward to another visit, but hope they'll add other tables besides the hightops . . .

The food was very tasty, especially, the pork belly poutine was to die for.

A younger sports bar crowd in Chinatown. Small venue with high-tops. Really good food & drinks.

We found Smith & King by choosing a random place from Open table. We got into the habit of doing this because we're always looking for new places near us to try and we haven't been disappointed yet.

Smith & King is right in the heart of downtown. We both had drinks off their cocktail menu and both were very well made, refreshing, and different. We ate the lobster mac n cheese and french onion soup after starting with a cheese and fruit appetizer. The cheeses were very good, and the fruit that they were paired with made them even better. The lobster mac n cheese... well, let's just say we're looking forward to ordering it again. decent chunks of lobster, nice blend of cheese, and very good. We were fighting over it. The french onion soup was one of the best I've had. We both agreed that it was very good. the flavor of the broth is slightly different than we're used to, almost a little citrusy or tangy.. but we love that it is not overly salty, and even after sitting for awhile, the bread and cheese on the top didn't compromise the flavor of the broth or muddle the broth any (usually the broth gets whitish when the bread starts dissolving into it.

Overall, we're very happy with this find. We're looking forward to going back again and trying more things off their menu.

The warmest welcome ever by the all-around-bartender, host, food server Samson 'Sam'... he greet the four of us and immediately address our concern which was having high back chairs instead of the bar stools. He was cordial and efficient in taking our drink order and making the drinks. The menu was different and everything was tasty; we were able to try each other salad, mac & cheese, one with and another without lobster and the fish and chips. Food was served nice and hot and with a smile. The chef and Samson surprised us with 'birthday'cake as dessert for the entire party. Good folks (I heard the owner is a young brother and sister) trying hard to make a business a go in the heart of Honolulu's Chinatown revitalization. Give them a try, won't be disappointed.

NYC FEEL in Honolulu. Fish and chips were great. Huge portion. Live entertainment was great! Good beer selection. Food was a change of pace from the chain restaurants recommended. Great find!

Didn't realize this place was a bar, a not a restaurant, as advertised.
Made a lunch reservation for a business client meeting and was quite surprised to find it was a bar!
The food was pretty good though. We had the Chopped Salad and Margarita flatbread.

This is the best burger in downtown and Chinatown!!
What a pleasant surprise for lunch.
Our table had three different burgers of varying wellness. All were plump, juicy and great.
I can't wait to come back and try some of the other menu items.
I'm telling my friends and colleagues about this place.

Great bar food and good drinks. I had the King's burger and tried some mac n' cheese, both were delicious. The only thing their menu is lacking is appetizers, they only have a cheese plate and charcuterie board.

1st time at Smith & King's and was happy with the choice. Great food choices - a little different from the norm and not over-priced. So awesome they took reservations from Open Table. Great staff and attention. Will certainly go back!

This restaurant is right next to Pig and the Lady and is set up with high round tables that seat four and seats at the bar. This might not work for everyone but if you can you need to try it, the food is amazing and the staff are great.

We had the Mac and Cheese (no lobster), the flatbread, the strawberry salad and desserts. Everything was tasty but the salad, creme brûlée and chocolate soufflé were amazing!

The waitress was very friendly and professional when we wandered in. We go seated rift away and the food came out quickly.

We'll definitely be back!

A friend invited me to see him perform on a First Friday last week and I had to come back! I brought two friends and they both enjoyed their first experience. Samson is delightful and really added to an already wonderful evening of drinks and delicious food. Their flat breads are delicious and pair very well with any of their massive drink selections. This time I had the Mac & Cheese and it was so good! Unlike many other restaurants, this dish wasn't Kraft-level mediocre. S&K's does it right by blending cheeses like Alton Brown. Definitely check this place out. Fridays usually start out a bit more low-key, but it can get pretty packed by 8pm-9pm. Fun place!
