Go Patriots! Jonathan and Chad always welcome patrons as long-time friends. Marian's pies are the best. May they continue as fixtures in Honolulu's community. Wonderful examples of making a difference! And good food and drink as well as best ambiance.

The food is good and reasonably priced. Our server was nice but not very attentive. It has relaxed atmosphere where you can catch up with friends.

Great food without all the fuss of many Honolulu restaurants. Feels local for locals. Good value. Try the hot turkey sandwich, the steak and the meatloaf. Fresh like home cooking. Awesome wait staff. We were stuck with family at a local hospital for a couple...More

We had seen this Pub featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives. While on Oahu we decided to check it out. We took an Uber car from our hotel on Waikiki here (I would say it is in downtown Honolulu). The atmosphere was nice and...More

Hi, Yes there is meter parking out side but it is only available at limited times. There is a parking lot close by but really expensive. Free parking available a few blocs away if you are willing to walk.
