Whole family loved it. The ribs are simple and awesome. The garlic shrimp is delicious, but not shelled. (Bummer)

Teriyaki chicken excellent.

Order to table was almost 40 minutes….But we weren't in a hurry, or it would have been 3 stars.

We held our wedding reception in Hau'ula and Papa Ole's catered for us. First rate food at an affordable price which all our guests raved about!

Went to the North Shore for a nice drive with my boyfriend. I told him about this place that I had been to with friends from the mainland. We live on O'aug but rarely get to the North Shore.

After looking the menu board over, we opted to order the "Big J" plate to share. Comes with the big bone short ribs, garlic shrimp with the best creamy garlic sauce, rice, & mac salad. The price is steep but it's a plate for 2. Even my boyfriend was stuffed after eating half.

The person at the counter giving out the orders was nice enough to give us a sample of their special peanut butter sauce that they put on their home made rolls. We will get that next time.

We got there a little late on Sunday so they were out of their pulehu style ribs but substituted with kal-bi ribs which were perfectly marinated and perfectly grilled.

They have an area outside with huge picnic tables to eat at and a few tables inside. We took ours to go and had lunch near the beach. My boyfriend says we will definitely be going to Papa Ole's again. He loved the food.

For our lunch here, we tried some island favorites--shrimp, pork, and fish. All was delicious. The service was a slow, but the picnic tables out front made for a nice place to eat.

The ladies behind the counter were really nice and friendly. We had sautéed shrimp and cheeseburger. They were really busy but we got our food fast. Tasty! It is one of our favorites on this side of Oahu.
