“good basic pizza sandwiches pasta”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Ate here several times. Sportsbar atmosphere but pizzas are good and service pretty good too. One of the few good places you could just walk into without making a reservation.

“Hard to be indoors, but good place to get out of the sun”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Very helpful staff. Generous portions. Good happy hour specials help with the value. Typical sports bar TV monitors. I just found the atmosphere contrary to sunny Honolulu, but this place would be perfect for a game or a rainy day, or respite from the sun. Just seemed very mainland without any of the local charm. But good choice if looking for something reasonable in this very expensive town.

“Pastrami on rye was fine with me”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Having read the other reviews I thought it was fine - the service was excellent, the food came quickly and a good quantity and tasted yummy!! We don't get pastrami on rye at home so its always something I like to eat in the US - this was fine - tasted like it should and price was fine too - I would recommend it for what it is - go at Happy Hour for cheaper drinks - I enjoyed my dinner!!

“3rd strike....”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I've tried it for breakfast, then for lunch on the last trip in January - and this trip I tried it for dinner. Not impressed at all with any of the three. It was just "okay". The service was okay, the food was okay - but nothing stands out. Just blah. I am in Waikiki often - but I won't be back here.

“Extensive menu of familiar food”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

A big menu of various sandwiches and pizza. Ambience is nice, and service is friendly. Seemed popular with tourists for sports as there were a few TV screens showing various sports being played internationally (rugby union test match between Australia & France was on when we went). We weren't there for the sports, only for food. We were in a group of seven and didn't have any reservations but they made tables available within 10mins. Food portions were large and taste was good, but nothing to write home about. I had the Reuben sliders which was very filling - plenty of meat. Giovanni Pastrami is a Good option if you want something simple and familiar.
