Mai Tai strong drink quick buzz and then you need a refill. We stopped in here to pass the time before our flight to Maui. I had 2 overpriced Mai Tais they were good but didn't hit the spot. My boyfriend ordered some finger food - just ok nothing super impressive.

Flew into Honolulu after a 9 hour straight flight from Atlanta. I just could not fathom eating the food on the plane so I was good and hungry upon arrival. We ordered Ray's Plantation Platter. Food was decent at best. The pineapple in the center of the plate was the best thing on there. Not worth $28, but much, much better than what was offered on the plane!

OK, you are at HNL and looking for a place to eat. Stinger Ray's is there in the interisland terminal and it is not junk food. How bad can it be? Well, the answer is that it can be an expensive so-so lunch. I had a coconut shrimp appetizer and my wife had soup, we had 2 lemonades, and the bill was $41 before tip. Yikes! And we had to work to get our waiter to pay attention to use and give us the check. So welcome to Hawaii! Seriously, we would not eat there again; just did not cut it.

My wife and I have stopped here on many trips to Hawaii, always when awaiting a flight to another island our a return to mainland. Service is pretty fast, food tastes good only because you are desperately hungry after a long flight, and on inbound trip it is always great to get that 1st Mai Tai in. There are actually other choices in the other parts of the terminal, but this is always our 1st choice.

Airport food is always underwhelming with very few exceptions, and Stinger Ray's in the Honolulu airport is not one. Nevertheless, it was an adequate place to stop and have a bite during a long layover. We sat back in the corner, found a power outlet for the laptop and stayed for a couple of hours. It worked out.

Aside from being overpriced, there weren't any real negatives to the meal. It just wasn't very exciting or memorable -- but then again, what do you expect? It was all on par with that of any large American chain restaurant.

The Stinger Ray theme and its accompanying mythos, woven through the menu, just kind of comes off as a bit cheesy and it would be cool if they got rid of that, but whatever.

The final thing that clinches this review's star rating is, again, the prices. Who charges $4.25 for a fountain soda? Really?
