The Shorebird Restaurant closed down after years of giving great BBQ style meals, while we were there. A new restaurant is due to open at the end of next year. So watch that space on the beachfront.

We had just had a swim and had our photo's taken with the Bird guy on the beach and were feeling a little hungry when we spotted the Shore Bird. Fish and chips felt really appropriate given the location and our meals were excellent. We...More

Cook your own steaks, fish, chicken right on the grill. (Help is available) Opens right onto the beach with fantastic views. Sadly, the Shorebird closed on September 30, we were the last to eat there. It is being remodeled to open under a new name.

We visited as we had just arrived at the hotel and wanted a quick lunch. The food was reasonably priced, service was quick and friendly and the happy hour drinks were a good price. The view of the beach was also incredible.

Different way to do it, patrons cook their own food on the grills and then help themselves to the salad bar. Good food

The HHV fireworks start at 7:45, not 9pm as Carl said, and last less than 10 minutes. If you have a table on the rail you should be able to view them, or you can make your res for before or after 7:45 and walk out to the... More

Description
For the past 29 years, Island residents and tourists alike have flocked to the Shore Bird, making it one of Waikiki's most venerated institutions. It's the thrill of the grill that has captured guests imaginations and appetites for more than two decades. Shore Bird is not just a place to eat. Shore Bird is an experience where all guests have a lot of fun! Servers interact with our guests and not just serve them. The over all concept is "Aloha". Guests are responsible for for grilling their own dinner entrees but they don't have to be master barbecurers. An experienced grill hand and a large clock help make the process easy. Here's how it works: Steaks and seafood come to the table fresh on a platter with instructions. Guest are able to season and then prepare their entree exactly to their liking . All entrees include the salad bar, which showcases more than 25 items, such as fresh greens, garnishes, fruits, tako poke, rice, bread and pasta.
