"Came for the Round Table Pizza which was very good. Round Table Pizza may well be the best Pizza on the Planet.
There is no internet access."

"Gave me more of a mainland feel which I liked. A sports diner but new and great quality. I really loved the location, the look, and the Reuben sandwich was amazing. Large portion sizes. Thumbs up from me. Will come again. Cool spot for lunch or casual dinner"

"We visited Hawaii for 12 days so we had the opportunity to eat in several resturants this was one of our favorites. The food choices were fantastic with great portion sizes. We plan on recommending the resturant to friends visiting Hawaii especially if you want to watch your favorite sport while on vacation."

"went for a casual dinner but the place was LOUD, food was below average - had grilled cheese but the size of the sandwich was a slider size or a regular sandwich size besides that they cancelled my reservation so I did not get the opentable points - complained to the Manager and he said he would fix it so I could receive the points which he NEVER did!!!!
Lots of great sports bars in Honolulu don't waste your time at this place"

"We went for pizza for dinner on our honeymoon with our destination wedding party. The pizza was RoundTable Pizza, there were some local choices that made it non average on the menu. The server was a little slow and lacking. But a good time was had by all until it got too loud."

"Waitress was great! Perfect timing for service as I was on travel eating alone. Table was stuck in the middle of floor beside a pole. Probably worst seat in the restaurant. Made eating awkward. But waitress & food were great. Would return for a Reuben fix. Just wait for a better seat."

"Our server had 6-8 tables. Difficult to provide quality service with that many customers to take care of. Had a reservation for 8:45 and they didn't seat is until past 9. Ordered the BJ Penn special. Server came back a few minutes later to inform us they had run out of pizza dough so they couldn't give us pizza. Server didn't provide any options for the special so we ended up paying full price for the beer and wings."

"Food was great, as always. Not only the pastrami but other dishes e.g. spaghetti, were very tasty. Service was exceptional. Wife ordered soft poached eggs, which came rather firm. Waiter said to keep those and he brought another order of poached eggs which were perfect. Waiter would always stop (which is how he caught the over cooked poached eggs) as he walked by asking if we needed anything. On several occasions he refilled the kid's diet soda drinks w/out us asking. He was worth the 20%+ tip."

"This restaurant came highly recommended to my husband and I from several friends that live on the island. They were 100% on target with its food and service. The 20% military discount is a huge bonus too! We had a pitcher of Longboard Lager, wings and the Kahlua Pork Pizza. All very delicious and the service was great too! It is also downstairs from the Wyndham Beach Walk, the perfect location for Wyndham owners!"

"The food was fine. I did not appreciate the fact that even though I specifically told them I was an OpenTable reservation, they did not check me in. Later that day I got an e-mail saying they cancelled my reservation.
Very irritating for them not to follow policy. They get the benefit of being listed on OpenTable, but don't have to contribute to the points.
Will not return, as this is a second occurance here."

"Made a reservation for 6 people through Open Table. Realized it was just across the street when we reserved. We came at the reserved time and they said they did NOT have a table open for six people. Half of us left for another restaurant. We stayed for a smaller table that they DID have available. Pizza was very good."

"Disappointed with the Rueben bites. The bread was sitting in liquid on the plate ...extremely soggy.
Did not finish it.
The chicken salad was also disappointing. It tasted like oil. So we requested for balsamic dressing but it still tasted like an oily salad with very little flavor.
We would return for the spaghetti!! The flavor of the sauce is amazing."

"Like another reader said the pastrami came with soggy bread and we had to ask for mustard. This is NY style. I don't think so. Prices are high for what you get. And, while we went at hours when they are supposed to validate, we got a sticker to pay $3 for parking. If you want to watch a game, this may be the place. But not a place to get food at a fair price, or to get good service."

"Pastrami Reuben excellent as always, although they seem to have cut back on the amount of meat. Best sandwich on the island.
Plus they offer Acqua Panna water! My favorite, and the only place here I know that offers it."

"Had a late night dinner. My husband had Eggs Benedict and I had a Cobb Salad. Food was good, service was good. We were just wanting something simple and fast and this place has a large menu. Good experience. We would eat here again."

"The reviews were mixed so we decided to give it a try. Average food, broad menu. Breakfast all day. Happy hour nachos good; happy hour drinks smaller. Table in back quieter than up front."
