Let me start by saying...all our food was really good, Oxtail Soup, Tasty Chicken, Lemon Crunch Cake and Baked Apple Crumble w/ Ice Cream. The service was really good too. Our server was attentive, pleasant and there when we needed her.

What was not good is the 30 min. wait when they refused to take a reservation. I have learned from others that I should consider myself lucky as it is usually upwards of 45 min. So if you don't mind standing around outside the restaurant inhaling exhaust from the cars parking, or sitting at dirty picnic tables while you wait...the food IS good.

Always seems to be a 45 minute wait to get in, but worth it. Shorter wait of you accept a seat at the bar.

The food and desserts are excellent! Never been disappointed. The portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. Parking is at a premium, so go for an early lunch. Very casual ambience as it's in a bowling alley. But the food is so delicious. We always try to go when we visit HI.

I have tried food served in several bowling alleys and so far none seem to compare to the flavor that your taste buds would experience and it would keep on asking for more. For you garlic lovers, the "Suppa Garlic Shrimp" would serve as an invitation for you to drop in and try other items on their menu like the "Spicy Shrimp" and "Tasty Chicken". And for you soup lovers, the "Oxtail Soup" just wakes up the senses in your mouth. Enough of this...just drop in and try it.

This is the last place you'd think would serve good food around Peral Harbor. Yet, it is the most popular for a great reason! Don't let the bowling alley fool you, this is a top notch place to have lunch. Had the Ox Tail soup and it is very authentic and delicious!
