best steaks in Oahu

I'm going to Oahu in November, and am looking for a great steak restaurant. Me being from Wisconsin, I like my meat! We are staying at the Royal Hawaiian, so any places in Honolulu would be great.

Thanks Chowhounds!

  1. Not exactly sure who has the best but here are a few that I like.

    Ruth's Chris

    All of them are conveniently located in Waikiki and the first two are very near the Royal Hawaiian.

    1. Agree with the above. I like Hy's before Woflgang and Ruth Chris...

      1. DK Steakhouse gets good reviews, but I haven't been. Hy's is always good, an old standard. Ruth's Chris and Mortons are fine, but no different than what you are going to be getting at any of their restaurants anyplace else.

        1. re: KaimukiMan

          Like you, I hear great things about Hy's. The others are really "adult McDonalds" in my book. Even on the Mainland, I only dine there, when a host insists. Even if the wine list is handed to me, I have yet to really enjoy either. Besides, I have about 3 of each in Metro Phoenix, and avoid them here. Why would I go to either in Hawai`i?


        2. I've dined at DK Steakhouse and prefer this place to Ruth's Chris or Morton's. Hy's is also excellent.

          1. We thought the Yard House was very good. I believe it is downstairs from Ruth Chris on Lewers Street. I had the ribeye with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. It was awesome, and gluten-free for my wheat allergy. It's not far from the Royal Hawaiian--couple blocks maybe. Enjoy your time in Hawaii.
