Cattle Company Steakhouse

Reviewed By Rae W - Honolulu

I remember when going to the Cattle Company at Ward Warehouse was a special treat. But Ward Warehouse doesn't exist anymore and neither does the excellent experience that eating at Cattle Company used to be.

My friend and I went at about 2 p.m. and were told there would be a 15-minute wait. I was stunned because it didn't seem busy, and it wasn't! Half of the restaurant was empty! My friend and I tried to think of good reasons for this wait. Did they not have enough staff for the entire restaurant?

That was apparently the answer because the wait was longer than 15 minutes!

When we were finally seated in the half-empty restaurant, we had to wait to place our order because they really didn't have enough wait staff. My friend ordered the grilled fresh salmon and really enjoyed her food. Apparently, she had been here before and knew the salmon would be good. I can't even remember what I ate, but I remember that it was just okay. Nothing memorable.

The bill was really cheap because my friend had a coupon, so our entire meal was about $25. Even though she paid, I would not go back.

Reviewed By HawaiiAndi - Pearl City, Hawaii

What makes this place special are the staff. They are very friendly. Been here multiple times and always greeted by staff. Very friendly and helpful. The options of soft serve yogurt is pretty standard. They don't have many options as their competitors but the service areas are all clean; they do have lots of topping options though. Seating is good - many seats inside and outside. Lots of free parking in this shopping center.

Buzz's Original Steak House

Reviewed By travelrascel - California

Most tourists will probably never visit this place unless you're venturing out of Waikiki. Buzz's has been a mainstay for years with locals. The location in Pearl City near Honolulu is cool because it sits on top of hill and has some nice views. I don't think I've ever had a bad meal here. The prime rib, teriyaki steak, chicken and salmon are all delicious. The decor is straight out of the 80's so don't freak out when you walk in, it's all about the food at this place!

I have a hard time trying new things here because my go to favorites are just so darn good! I literally have dreams about the meatball bah mi, make sure you try it just once, you'll have a hard time forgetting it and will miss the awesome specials they have as well! One of these specials was the lamb cutlet with green miso, wow!! If they had this on the regular menu I just may switch my favorite. Make sure to get the combo with large drink and macaroon, it's a great deal! Kids love their flatbread pizzas and soups.

This is for the person who just wants something they can depend on and doesn't want to be surprised. The Portugese Bean Soup is GREAT! Don't expect anything special...just really good. Also, the restaurant is usually cold so dress warm for your Zippy's experience. Semper fi, Paul

Love coming here for breakfast, although the lines these days keep getting longer and longer with people writing reviews in how awesome it is! Love to come in for the short rib Benedict and stuffed French toast. We also can't stop our cravings for the tots and poutine! Awesome breakfast joint in the West Side!

Poke on Da Run

Reviewed By Lyn M - Long Valley, New Jersey

the best poke we had in Hawaii during or 8 days! The owner and employees are fabulous and clearly invested in their customers. They guided us in ordering which was especially helpful with a picky kid. Fresh, fragrant, my tastebuds were thrilled! I would come back here in a heartbeat! Only downside is that it is small. If it were bigger, it would lose its perfection!

Ramen Ya

Reviewed By atomicbob2016 - San Diego, California

I feel really this place is pretty much average as far as Ramen places go.Nothing rea ally popped out to me as fantastic. Maybe I'm just a little tired of the overabundance of noodle places, but it really is just average.
Prices are decent for the portion size, and service is good, however overall, I wasn't overwhelmed by my visits there.
