Review of the Shore Bird Restaurant in Waikiki

One of the most popular restaurants in Waikiki, Honolulu is the Shore Bird Restaurant & Beach Bar because of its stellar location on this legendary beach. Diners enjoy sea breezes and a Diamond Head view in the casual, open-air facility on the ground floor level of the Outrigger Reef Hotel, located at 2169 Kalia Road. Birds comically waddle along the floor, looking for tidbits customers might toss their way.

The restaurant's ambience is pure Hawaiian, with hanging surfboards, lights sprouting palm leaves and fans on old fashioned pulleys to cool the tropical air. A well stocked salad bar is a meal in itself, but the fun of this eatery is the opportunity to grill one's own steak or fish at the giant barbeque. There is a full service bar and karaoke nightly, too.

The food is fair to pretty good, but what makes this place so special is its setting. Families can walk from the surf and sand to fill up at the buffet for a reasonable price and then stroll back to the shore. The restaurant is also within walking distance of the Lewers Street Beach Walk shopping strip, an interesting row of shops. "Go to the Shore Bird for lunch and Duke's for dinner," advises frequent Oahu visitor, Kate Barker of Pleasanton, California. Of course, travelers will want to sample all the fabulous places to eat in Waikiki, but the Shore Bird at the Outrigger Reef is not to be missed.
