The view. The food. The drinks. The The atmosphere... There is no other place that I love as much as Haleiwa Joe's! I saved napkins with their logo, and the memories and pictures from the place make me warm during cold Ukrainian winters. Never miss out a chance to visit this restaurant. Do indulge.

We dined here on our first night on the Island and the food was awesome. Huge portion and great taste.

All the previous reviews don't do this place enough justice!! Although they don't take reservations, the wait (45 mins) was well worth it... Our party of 9 (including 5 kids) were seated and immediately attended to... Appetizers and drinks were quick and spot on. Our entrees consisted of two prime ribs, one crab leg, and a haiku chicken... My wife chicken was over-cooked, but they immediately brought out a fresh one that was to her liking!! The prime rib is to DIE FOR!! Kids menu consists of chicken and fish (ours had the fish). Go early and hungry!! Place is very busy, yet efficient... The garden below is breathtaking!!

We ate there three times during our two week vacation in Hawaii. The food and drinks, the view, and the knowledgeable staff make this the must go restaurant in Kaneohe. No other place comes close. Trust me you will not be disappointed! Try the prime rib - it is huge and the best I have had in a long time - and they totally understand rare.

Haleiwa Joe's' Kaneohe location serves fabulous food and drinks, and the service is wonderful. Their gargantuan servings of roasted prime rib are beyond description in both quantity and quality. Their locally-acquired fresh fish dishes, both raw and cooked, are expertly prepared. The bartenders are terrific at creating tasty, novel cocktails, and they're very knowledgeable about the modest but diverse wine list. It's difficult to find any fault with this gorgeous and romantic restaurant. But, and it's sometimes a big "but": they don't take reservations, so when they're busy (which is always, it seems) the wait time can be frustrating. They are always packed anyway, so I guess they don't mind frustrating some patrons frequently. Second "but": it's open to the weather all across the fabulous view side looking down onto the pond, and there's no air conditioning -- so if weather conditions are hot and humid (which seems to be more and more frequent in the last decade) it can be uncomfortable despite the many ceiling fans. Overall, if the weather is comfortable and breezy, and if you don't mind risking a possible lengthy wait for a table, by all means don't miss Haleiwa Joe's in Kaneohe! (Their original Haleiwa location can be a very different story, food-wise -- but that's for another review . . . . )
