Terrible breakfast worse than a cheap motel and bad cocktails. The view is nice pity they can't get their act together.

Vast Ocean view, arguably the best breakfast/brunch buffet on the Island of Oahu. $15.95 and worth every penny.

Grilling my own food seemed like a fun gimmick, and the food was delicious, but on looking back perhaps a bit pricey, give that I cooked it myself.

Grill your own steak! As one who BBQs, Love the idea. Not a charcoal grill but they must cater to the masses. Bit hot standing around the grill but that is what cold beer is for. We had a large party of 15. Joe the waiter did an excellent job of providing for the varying dining expectations. He a few... More

It was so nice to see fresh salad in Waikiki. We had a table by the water and it was lovely. We didn't even have to cook our own steak as first thought. They cooked it for us and it was perfect. You can visit the salad bar as many times as you like.

Such a great place to eat. It's a grill your own food place but they have a grill master who is super helpful. They also have great mixed drink options. Highly recommend the signature Shore Bird cocktail.

We had burgers at the Shore Bird, we had a table on windows that look out over the beach. The atmosphere, and food were wonderful. The burgers were delicious, loved the mango ketchup. The bucket of fries were ample and delicious. Had a great lunch at a fair price. Service was quick and friendly.

The atmosphere and location are the attraction. The steak and the concept are average, but what a VIEW of Waikiki. I prefer to be served quality beef rather than cooking my own.

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.
