Reviewed 9 June 2014

We had many Maitis while here! They have the best, by far! The garlic fries are also good. The service was great:)

“Walked in...walked out”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Went to walk in door. Had bouncer stick out his hand and demanded mine and my wife's ID. No problem. Walked 10 feet into the bar, sat down at first table and had yet another bouncer approach us. No high,welcome,ALOHA. Just "let's see some id. It's important to note my wife is 29 and I am 31. We showed him the id again, and said screw this and walked out the door. Zero welcoming atmosphere. Was just looking for a place to grab some dinner and a drink. Will never go back.

“bad service, only slightly better food”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

we ordered:
1 da big kahuna burger
1 cheesy fries
1 catsu chicken
1 coke
1 sparkling water (Soda)

the waitress forgot the soda water and fries, and after initially taking the order, she had to come back again to find out what we ordered as she forgot.

Seems pretty poor and the wait staff are more interested in leaning on the bar than serving anyone.

food was "ok" but wouldnt go back.
