queen's surf snack bar

queen's surf cafe & lanai

this place opens at 7am and is open till 7 M-W, 9 T-Sat, 8pm on Sunday. Thursday - Sunday evening starting around 5 till closing they have live music. The food is reasonably priced. This past sunday a friend and i spontaneously decided to eat there (since we were at the beach at sunset) and both had the grilled pork chops. Very nicely prepared, 2 fairly thick chops, very moist and flavorful. Served with a decent portion of salad and either fries or rice. Fries ok, the rice was slightly over cooked, but not badly so. They have a variety of foods (hot dog 2.95, fries, 295, fish and chips 8.95, Furukake ahi plate 10.95 to name a few.) No alcohol.

These owners put a lot of effort into sprucing up the place before they opened, hope they make a go of it after a long string of disasters and horrors before. They don't seem to have a website. Its hard to beat siting on the beach at Waikiki at sunset with live music watching the surfers paddle back in from a day riding the waves.

      According to Yelp the address is 2701 Kalakaua Ave (808) 924-2233.

      It is across the road and a little bit diamond head (east) of the Kapiolani Park bandstand, about halfway between the Kapahulu groin and the Waikiki Aquarium.

        Thanks KMan. Have you tried the oxtail soup from The Alley in Aiea Bowl that was rated Best on Oahu by Honolulu Mag? It is delish!

          the problem with the Alley is there is too much to choose from. i haven't worked my way up to? down to? the oxtail, but i will keep your recommendation in mind!
