We needed a place to rest and enjoy the view and a cold one after a day of shopping. This hit the spot. It was practically empty so we sat at the front window overlooking the ocean. We enjoyed chilled Koloa coconut rum. We also...More

I sat at the bar, great service, good wine list. Fabulous live music. I ate the fish n chips and it was fresh and nicely presented. Delicious chips!

This is a bar with loud crass music and crappy food and the drinks are ridiculously priced. We paid $40 for two drinks.....then they wanted a tip as well, so made for a very expensive lunch. Plenty of other better places to go in Hawaii....More

While walking along the beach, you must stop for a Rumfire Signature Mai Tai. Very smooth and not too sweet. The best.

We sent an hour or so on the patio having cocktails. There is a nice view, they offer food and cocktails.

Did not eat here but did order a drink or 2. I was not impressed with any of the drinks I got. I ended up wasting 1 of them. I asked the bartender for advice and he lead me in the wrong direction.

Every visit to Waikiki includes a visit to Rum fire. Especially at sunset when the lights start to twinkle on and Diamond Head turns pink. Food is casual, drinks are done well, and the view is first rate.

Fourth trip to Honolulu and each time have enjoyed Rum Fire. This time it was a girls night out and we wanted somewhere nice for a late afternoon nibble and drinks. Perfect views of the ocean and excellent for people watching too! At the upper...More

Yes-this place would be ideal. I recommend calling ahead for a reservation ask for a cluster of small tables or lounge area with a water view. Also ask about the music. I personally do not like to sit too close to loud music... More
